A 5 star-rating on Goodreads is the best you can get. A 10/10, a 100%, an A+ etc. I thought I didn’t give 5 star-ratings a lot, but there are still 24 books that I gave a 5-star rating. Here they are!

A little note first

But first, how are you guys? Isn’t this a crazy world we live in now? I have a really hard time thinking about anything else than the virus, and it’s draining. But I know I’m not the only one in this.

The situation here in the Netherlands is bad, but at the same time, it’s bad everywhere. We are urged to stay at home, work from home and wash our hands and stay away from people. So I’m at home scared, because this scary virus is extra dangerous for me, since I’m a high risk person.

I like to escape the world right now, so I’m burying myself in books, series (I’m deep in Love Is Blind right now and OMG!) and movies and catch the occasional PokΓ©mon on my boyfriend’s Switch.

Back to the books

I had trouble coming up with a blogpost this week. Mostly because my mind is somewhere else, but partly because I don’t want to take advantage of the situation. Blogs like … things to do at home right now, or Read these books now that you’re stuck at home didn’t feel appropriate.

So I want to keep things positive and share the 24 books I gave a 5-star rating. These are all the 5-star ratings I gave on Goodreads, from the moment I started on Goodreads up until now.

Funny thing: I don’t remember some of these books that well… Maybe I’ll have to re-read and see why I loved them so much!

Books with a 5 star-rating

When a book gives me all the feels, I’m more likely to give it a high rating. Whether it’s making me emotional, very happy or just makes me think.

These books nearly (or did) make me cry:

These books made me all happy and gooey inside:

This (Dutch) non-fiction book made me think

These books I don’t really remember…


What are your 5-star rated books? Have you read any of these books, and if so, which one and what did you think? Do you re-read favorites?
