My 2018 5 Star Reads

I had 15 5 Star Reads in 2018 which is pretty good. It’s hard to explain why a book gets a 5 star over a 4 star, something intangible, something that moves me. Often it’s a byproduct of the moment in time that I’m reading it., but the commonality I can find is, it either made me laugh, or think, a lot, and that I end up recommending it frequently.

Did I have any overlaps with you!?

If you click on the picture of each book, it’ll take you to the Amazon buy link.
Wishing You Happy Reading in 2019!

“A Queen from the North” – Erin McRae & Rachael Maltese

Amazon Link Here:

Alternative Universe where the War of the Roses never quite ended. ADORED this slow burn May-December romance. Widower Heir to the Throne Hero, University Student Peerage Heroine. Chance meeting leads to unexpected alliance to bring the two feudal groups together. Throw in some minor magic & LGBTQIA plotlines and I was hooked. As a Brit it felt like these characters rang true, the often conflicting sense of necessity of a Royal Family versus their benefits for a Modern nation were well drawn out. If you liked PBS’ Victoria, Downton Abbey or have a curiousity over modern Royal Romances you’ll love this. I cannot wait for the next book, CAN.NOT!
