Five Star Reads in Five Words

You know me, I love a good bandwagon. So once I saw a couple of people doing the Five Star Books in Five Words Tag, I absolutely wanted in. It’s a tag originally created by Booktuber Matthew Sciarappa, but I’m going to be bold and bring it to the written world.

The idea is pretty simple – take some of the books you’ve given five stars to, and give five words to describe them. I realise it seems now as I’ve just mansplained the task but that really is it.


I’m going to take five of my reads from 2019 (so far, who knows if there are still some to come).

I have already so many five star books from 2019 it was rather hard to pick just five of them. But, I think I’ve whittled it down to give the five books I could best describe.
