June 2017 Starred Reviews

June 2017 stars tally:

  • ¬†699 books published in 2017 have been awarded 1151 starred reviews as of the end of June.
  • 2 books have 6 starred reviews, 15 books have 5 starred reviews, 31 books have 4 starred reviews, 71 books have 3 starred reviews, 147 books have 2 starred reviews, 433 books have 1 starred review.
