I predicted which books I thought I’d rate five stars (and already analyzed those for the year), but I thought it would be fun to go back and look at my “most anticipated” lists and TTT posts as well. Cristina posted one a couple of weeks ago and it inspired me to do my own! I’m keeping it simple because I’m lazy today but there will be some info on my ratings for these books too.
Books I Read
I’m extremely impressed that I managed to read the VAST majority of the books I put on my “most anticipated” list at the beginning of the year. Many of them lived up to my expectations or exceeded them, with most books falling in the 4-4.5 star range. Some got a little less and one even earned 5 stars. The most disappointing was SAM & ISLA, which isn’t overly surprising.
4 stars | 4.5 stars | 4 stars | 3.5 stars | 4 stars
3.5 stars | 4.5 stars | 4 stars | 4 stars | 3 stars
5 stars | 4 stars | 4.5 stars | 4.5 stars | 4 stars
Books I Didn’t Get To
I attempted to read all of these books at one point or another. I even got ALL WE CAN DO IS WAIT and THE WEDDING DATE out from the library, but the books sat there unread and acquired fines. For the latter though, I put off reading it because of some of the reviews. LOVE & OTHER TRAIN WRECKS is one I hope to get to next year because it will fit in with one of my challenges.
