My Most Recent FIVE Star Books

Am I the only silly person that reads more than one book at a time?

When you take a look through my "Current Reads" on Goodreads, you'll most likely see more than one or two, if not three books. It's usually one book I'm supposed to be reading like a suggestion from a friend or my dad and not my typical kind of reading. The other is my book of choice and if there's another, it would be one I'm reading that's strictly on my iPad and doesn't sync with my phone. Boo.

I think one of my abilities to read multiple stories at once stems from my fanfiction days. Getting multiple updates delivered to my inbox had me constantly keeping up with multiple stories at a time. At least now I can finish a story in one sitting if I want!

Now, let's talk about the last three books I have read and actually gave FIVE stars to.

#3. Unteachable by Leah Raeder
This is a teacher/student story that I saw across several of the book rec sites I follow. While teacher/student isn't something that draws me in quite like a fighter story would I couldn't get what they were saying out of my head. So I took the plunge and boy am I glad I did. It's too bad I had to go to work or I would have finished it a lot more quickly. Unlike other books, I kept having to sneak away for my breaks and not do anything except get my fill of Evan.

#2. Where You Are (Between the Lines, #2) by Tammara Webber
This is a second book in a 4 part series by Tammara. You might recognize her name from her fabulous book Easy, which I read this past Summer. The first in this series, there was just too much unknown for me between the love triangle Tammara created and it wasn't until I got to book two that I fell in love with the hero. He has one soft spot that gets me every time and I really wanted more of their story and nothing else to do with the other characters she has written about in books three and four.

#1. Mine by Katy Evans
I don't think I've quite expressed my obsession with Katy Evans' Remy like I should have. I mentioned it when I talked about Mine on the release date, here. There are many unhealthy obsessive things about this series, but those are probably what keeps me coming back for more. And more we are getting when Katy releases Remy, which I've read the first 15 pages of and am DYING for more!!! You too can read them here.

I don't hand out five stars like one might think I would. Too many mistakes, not that I'm an editor obviously but some are just glaring! Also, if I could put it down it's probably not a five star book to me.

To see all of the books I've been up to in the book world, check out my Goodreads profile.

Over Thanksgiving, I'll be tackling the three books in the Lost and Found Series since I'm sure I'll have some time on my hands. Another book that just got added thanks to another rec from Kristen on Instagram this week. I just started the last in the Beautiful series, Beautiful Beginning by Christina Lauren. It's already so good!

What else should I be reading? Got any recs for me? My major requirements are a good and simple love story. I don't do post apocalyptic or YA much, and I tend to stay away from anything that's not romance focused, just a warning. I will share what you've rec'd on the blog next time I do a book post though!

Hope you guys had a great Thursday and tomorrow is Friday I can't wait!!


  1. I can't believe I didn't read any of these five star books. Will need to check them out-

  2. I wish I could read more than one book at a time...honestly, i'm lucky enough to have time to read just one book! ha :)

  3. That is talent to read that many books at once. I can only do one. I will put them in my "reading" group if i checked them out from the library so i don't have to go searching for them later. I have Mine on hold at the library so hopefully start it soon!
