Top Five No. 01

I have decided to title my book recommendation posts "Top Five." When I have read five books worth recommending, I will share a short review on each of them. I may also include a short excerpt from the book that made me stop and reread it and then just sit there and ponder. (I love when a book does that.)

Please understand that when I recommend a book, I am not endorsing every single scene, paragraph, and word. I am simply recommending it because I enjoyed the story or because it made me think about important things.

I mentioned earlier that I use the Goodreads app to track my reading. I am only going to recommend the books that I have given a four or five star rating to. I will indicate the few books I think deserve a five star rating by putting five stars beside the title. These are the books I totally LOVED and can't stop talking about it.
