BitB Best Books

Over the years, Book in the Bag has had hundreds of books read.  Although we don’t always agree on individual books (see the multiple reviews of Divergent, for example…), we do agree that books are amazing.  I’m pretty sure we’ll stop reading when we die.

What appears below are books that we’ve give five star reviews to over the years.  This list will be updated along with the annual favorite books list.  To get on this list, one reviewer had to post a five/five review.  That’s all.
