Reading is so much of what calms me down and brings me joy. I love nothing more than when I find a truly amazing book and get to share it with others I know will love it! I read a ton but I wanted to share a few 5 star books I’ve read recently!
5 Star Books I’ve Read Recently
The Playlist by Morgan Elizabeth: As someone who LOVES Taylor Swift and spicy romance books I feel like this book was made for me. It follows childhood best friends Zoe and Zander. Zander is Zoe’s best friend’s brother but they were always close as well. They are finally single at the same time and everyone tells Zander to make his move. It doesn’t hurt that Zoe is going through a quarter-life crisis. Zander takes her on an epic road trip!
The Summer We Fell by Elizabeth O’Rourk: Giving TW’s for emotional, physical, and mental abuse as well as sexual assault. This book really got me and I had the biggest book hangover. What if you felt indentured to someone and stayed with them out of obligation but were really in love with someone else?
Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak: You guys know I love a sports romance! Especially a spicy one. Wildcat is about a guy and a girl who meet and have an incredible night. He wants more than he realizes she is his new coach’s daughter.
Heartless by Elsie Silver: This is book two in a series but my favorite one! It follows a single dad and the nanny he hires to help with his son. A little bit of an age gap, very spicy!
The Infinity Between Us by N.S. Perkins: I love a second chance romance and especially one that involves childhood lovers to strangers to lovers. This book is beautiful and heartwarming but also has some sad parts.
What is a 5-star book you’ve read lately?
How I miss having the time to read as much as I would like – so haven’t read any 5 star books lately. This article has encouraged me to check out some of the books recommended and make the time! Thanks for sharing the book reviews.
I love reading! Thanks for sharing your book list with us.
Wow, you read a lot of books. I just finsihed reading DUNE and its a 10 out of 10 book.
These looks like a really great list of books! I’m surely going to check this out
I’ve saved these recommendations to my ever growing list. It’s so great to hear books that someone has loved.
Thank you for sharing these book titles. I know I have a lot of catching up reading to do myself these days. 😉
I am always on the look out for book recommendations so I am glad I came across your article. I would love to have a chance to read “The Infinity Between Us” and “The Summer We Fell.” I have to look for copies of those books.
Hhhhmmm….good for you, Neely. I haven’t read a book this whole month so far. I look forward to maybe, opening one today since it’s a public holiday here.
I’ve been looking for some new books to read for our upcoming beach trip. Thank you for your suggestions and reviews. The Summer We Fell sounds haunting but I really want to read it.
These all sound like great novels each with their own merits. I like the sound of the Playlist by Morgan Elizabeth, perfect for summer reading.
Wow, I haven’t read any of these! And I’m also not familiar with them. Sounds like a great list.
Looks like the great books to read! I’m more interested in spiritual book recently. You may want to check out the Old Path White Clouds by Thich Nhat Hanh. Otw, the travel books will be great sources to inspire you to explore the world.
The Summer We Fell sounds super interesting. I just read a TW kind of book, but it really was a great read, so I get it!
