Sometimes a book speaks to you a little more and a FIVE star review isn’t enough. Then there are the FOUR star reviews that stay with you even if it doesn’t get a solid FIVE star rating. Lauren and I have incorporated an award to set these apart. Please note: we firmly believe all books we review are worthy of a read (after all reading is subjective), these we’re awarding just means we connected with the book a little more and stands out. It’s our way of recommending books that may not make your to be read list, but hopefully will. Our plan is to take the best of the best from this list and crown a winner at the end of year as book of the year.
If we’ve awarded you an excellence or recommended award, please pick up your banner here.
