Since I’m reading and rating The 5 Lowest Rated Books on my TBR Stack according to GoodReads, it seems only logical to list the five highest rated books on my TBR. Like the five lowest rated books, I plan on reading them over the course of the year and will update my progress in the later in the year. And I’ll let you what I think about the books and whether or not I agree with think the rating.
***I think I forgot to mention in my lowest rated post that the books on both lists are all books I own as of January 1, 2019. Anything I purchased after this date is not a part of the list and will not be added to it this year. This list (and the lowest rated list) was compiled by me on January 22, 2019.
Here’s the list:
Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande 4.44 Stars
Why is it on my TBR: It came to me by book box a couple of years ago.
Why I think it has high ratings: Not sure.
An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon 4.44 Stars
Why it’s on my TBR: I picked this up at a library book sale.
Why I think it has high ratings: This is a part of a beloved series that the fans love. And those fans are a wee bit fanatical.
Broken Angels by Gemma Liviero 4.43 Stars
Why it’s on my TBR: I won this one in GoodReads Giveaway a couple of years ago.
Why I think it has high ratings: I’m guessing it’s the subject matter.
The Story of a Lost Child by Elena Ferrante 4.39 Stars
Why it’s on my TBR: I bought all of the Neapolitan Quartet a year or two ago. And it’s on my TBR because I’m not quite ready to finish the series.
Why I think it has a high rating: Because the novels are so good.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 4.37 Stars
Why it’s on my TBR: I bought this years ago and have put off reading because I’m afraid it won’t live up to my expectations.
Why I think it has a high rating: It’s a beloved book.
