If you want the best of the best, these five star books won’t disappoint. Here are 50 of my all-time favorite books to read.
If you are looking for the best books to read, where do you begin?
You could search for “five star books on Goodreads”, but then you’ll get Twilight in the top five. While many of you might love Twilight, you have to admit it’s not exactly the epitome of top-notch writing.
Searching “5 star books on Amazon,” you’ll get a handy list of twenty-five titles, only 7 of which I recognize. And I am in the book business!
I figured it was time to make my own list of favorite books. Those books that I gave five stars to because I couldn’t get enough of them.
Of course, you are likely to disagree with some of my choices. Reading taste is highly variable and subjective.
Which is good! We don’t need a million copies of me in the world, I can assure you.
Regardless of taste, I’m fairly certain you’ll find some books to your liking in my list. I mean, I gave you fifty to choose from.

Highest Rated Books: Fiction Bestsellers
Mary Beth Keane
Historical Fiction Books Rated 5 Stars
The unforgettable story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy Afghan boy and the son of his father’s servant, it beautifully describes love, friendship, betrayal, and redemption. Be warned that the novel is violent and graphic at times, so understand that while moving, the story is dark and disturbing. It’s that contrast between the worst of human nature and the best that truly brings out a remarkable tale that will stay with you for a long time.
Taylor Jenkins Reid
Among the highest rated books on Goodreads in 2019, Daisy Jones & The Six won the Goodreads Choice Award for best historical fiction for good reason. Taylor Jenkins Reid’s addictingly fun read about the rise and fall of a fictional 70s band couldn’t be left off this list. With sex, drugs, and plenty of drama, you’ll feel like you are watching a biopic on VH1 – but an extremely well-written one.
