I normally don’t hand out the 4.5 or 5 star rating that often, but this month it seems like I pick up one amazing book after the other. Out of the nine books I’ve read so far this month (ok, technically I’m still reading Winter, but I’m already 99% sure it will end up on this list as well anyway), no less than FIVE received the highest Goodreads rating. Which honestly makes me a bit scared about my next reads, because after so many amazing reads the first ‘bad’ book might as well get me in a reading slump. *shudders*


So what were those awesome reads and what do they have in common besides the rating? They are all YA novels, all were published this year and they are allย Goodreads Choice Awards nominees as well. I guess Goodreads picked them well haha. Carry On, Six Of Crows, George, Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Winter… All amazing in a different way, and it will be REALLY hard to pick just one November favorite. And I still have a lot of potential treasures on my November TBR I want to read as well!

So what about you? Have you read any of these? Have you read any 5 star worthy books already this month?
