2018 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

This was not a great quarter for reading. Compared to my other quarterly wrap-ups, this one is abysmal. I only got through five books and only one of them received five stars. Surprisingly, the book that received the lowest rating was one I was waiting for years to reread. It was a childhood favorite , but unfortunately, it didn’t hold up well to a reread. On the other hand, the book with the highest rating was one that intrigued me but I wasn’t sure I would like because of how spooky it was at times. So basically nothing went as expected this quarter. Anyway, here are my stats:
