These are the books that I rated 5-stars this year (in order that I read them). There are two re-reads, but that's life.

Inside the O'Briens /Lisa Genova
The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women / Kate Moore
We Band of Angels: The Untold Story of American Nurses Trapped on Bataan by the Japanese / Elizabeth M. Norman
A Thread of Grace / Mary Doria Russell
To Kill a Mockingbird / Harper Lee
Someone Knows My Name / Lawrence Hill
Exit West / Mohsin Hamid
Educated / Tara Westover
Of Mice and Men / John Steinbeck
The Namesake / Jhumpa Lahiri


=========================

I read a total of 178 books, and there was ONE more 5-star read. It was also a re-read, but it's the one I elected to take of the "top-ten" list: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
