The following are the books that were so close to being rated a 5 star, but just didn’t quite make the cut.  These are the books that would be rated 4.75 if that existed in my rating scheme.  I actually look back at these books and go “Really?  I didn’t rate you a 5 star?” and I forget why until reading my review.

I started to write a little note under each book below, but I can just tell you the gyst of all of them was “What?!  I can’t believe I didn’t rate this one 5 stars.  I loved this book!”  Haha.  So, I’ll save you some repetitive reading and just list the books.  Click on the image or title and author to go to my review.


Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll


The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter


Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn


The Elite by Kiera Cass


Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


Hopeless by Colleen Hoover


The Program by Suzanne Young


Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins


Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter


Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

 Are you like me and when you look back can’t believe you gave a book a certain rating?  What would your list be?

  1. Gone Girl and Catching Fire? Oh no, I don’t think we can be friends. Just kidding. I could see totally see why. Abrupt endings and MAJOR cliffhangers. I was on the edge of my seat and completely surprised by GG, I mean I had no clue what was going to happen, so for me it was a five star book. I was lucky and go to read the whole HG series back to back. I would have 4 staring s**t if I had been made to wait a whole year for a sequel.

      I know! Those two were huge surprises for me to see that I didn’t rate them 5 stars too! I loved both, and yes Gone Girl had such a crazy twist that I totally didn’t see coming.
