I’ve been writing six word memoirs for some years now and I thought, why not extend it to here? It might be fun, after all. And so, since it’s already the middle of the year, I’ve decided to describe the books I’ve rated 5 stars so far, in six words.
(Note: The following six words may not properly encapsulate the following books, so if you’d like to know more about them, check out my reviews [if there is], their respective Goodreads page and the other reviews available there!)
1. The Laramie Project by Moisés Kaufman
Matthew Shepard’s death cleared clouded visions.

5. The Kabuliwallah by Rabindranath Tagore
His daughter grew up a stranger.
Annnnd, that’s it!
I’m sort of surprised that the among five books I’ve rated 5 stars thus far, two are plays, one’s a short story and one’s a classic. In 2016, I’ve rated a total of 44 manga/comics and no other books 5 stars (it was my year of binge-reading comics and manga σ(´し_｀〃)ゞ). On the other hand, in 2015, I’ve only rated 3 books 5 stars and they’re all novels. I guess that while I’m reading a large variety of books, I’ve also gotten pickier. Hmm…
What are your 5-star reads so far this year? Do you have a lot, or a few like me? Comment down below cause I’d love to know! (Seriously, I do. This is like an indirect-ish book suggestion thing and I always love adding more books to my TBR pile 😂).
