What Was Your Last 5 Star Read?

Just finished ‘In The Woods,’ the first book in the ‘Dublin Murder Squad’ series by Tana French. This book had been on my radar for some time after watching the excellent BBC television adaptation. And I wasn’t disappointed. A gripping, rattling, rollercoaster of a book which leaves you turning the pages at a frenetic pace. Beautifully written and bursting with splendid prose. Five stars!

What was the last 5 star book you read?

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Finding Dorothy – it’s historical fantasy based on Mud baum’s life (the wife of L Frank Baum). I grew up reading allllll the books, and while many of the details were fictionalized, the research was amazing, and the discussions plausible.


  2. I recently read Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. About the same time, I read Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry. Both were terrific and I would say they are #1 and 2 on my favorites novels of all time list.

  3. It feels like cheating to mention a book that’s already considered a classic, but I picked up a copy of Willliam Saroyan’s “My name is Aram” for $1 at a charity sale, and fell in love with the author all over again.


      1. hhhmmm I guess it falls a bit under the Sci-fi genre because it involves time travel during the US slave trade and the underground railroad. Really interesting plot twists, in depth characters, beautiful imagery


  4. I always say Shakespeare. His stories are beautifully written but raw at the same time. Then I like James Patterson, I love a good mystery. Harlan Coben is great to keep you guesting. I think I’m getting close to actually solving the mystery, but then a switch happens at the very last minute. 😯


  5. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah! SUCH a good book. It’s historical fiction set in the WW2 era. I have recently gotten hooked on WW2 era fiction.
