Honestly, who doesn’t love reading a five-star book? Here are ten books we’ve reviewed at Long and Short Reviews this autumn that have earned this coveted rating.

Just like I normally do for posts like this one, I’ve sorted our answers out into romance and non-romance categories.

What five-star books have you all ready recently?


  1. The Nevermoor series was a definite 5 star read for me!

    The London season can only be a fun read from the sound of it.

    Happy TTT!

  2. I added _The London Season_ to my list. It looks really good…and as a woman in her fifties, I appreciated your “I stayed up all night reading!” review.

  3. I haven’t read any of these yet, but can’t deny those 5-star ratings!

  4. Alice’s Adventures sound interesting! I just went over to read your thoughts on it and that’s definitely intriguing!

  5. A five star list was a good idea! I haven’t read any of these books but will have to have a look further into them!

  6. A five star list was a good idea! I haven’t read any of these books but will have to have a look further into them!

  7. I haven’t heard of any of these – I’m going to have to look them up!

  8. The title of Alice’s Adventures Under Water is really intriguing.

  9. LAST SEEN ALONE sounds like one I’d like. I’ll have to check it out.

    Happy TTT!


  10. It’s such a good feeling when a book is a five star read!

  11. Nice idea to do your 5 star books, will have to consider that for a future post.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT about China.

  12. I’ll have to find Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber, it sounds wonderful. I love five star reads

  13. Who doesn’t love five-star reads? Great list!

  14. I like how you used different genres for picking.

  15. I feel like back when I reviewed books more, it was kind of a thing about reviewers giving out five stars “too much.” I was probably one of those reviewers, but if I enjoyed a book or it made me smile, I felt it deserved love because that’s PART of the joy of reading. Finding books that make the reader happy. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week!

    • You’re quite welcome!

      And, yeah, I’ve heard those criticisms as well. It can be tricky to know what to do when you have a streak of five-star reads…but that can happen sometimes!
