I know most of you are readers and like to hear about great new books or authors. Every couple of months, I try to help you out by reviewing one of the great books I’ve read, but I read far more than that.

So today, let me share with you the best books I’ve read so far this year—all the other ones (you know, besides those books I’ve done full reviews on) that I felt earned a 5-star rating, listed in no particular order.
