September 2018 Starred Reviews

Sorry for the hiatus – I had a big project at work leading the team coordinating my library’s first STEAM Fair which led right into a vacation! I’m back though with the report of September starred reviews. Hopefully October won’t be too far behind.

September 2018 stars tally:

  • 1069 books published in 2018 have been awarded 1691 starred reviews as of the end of September.  2 books have 6 starred reviews; 19 books have 5 starred reviews, 38 books have 4 starred reviews, 105 books have 3 starred reviews, 212 books have 2 starred reviews, 693 books have 1 starred review.
  • 4 books moved up to the 5 stars list from the 3 and 4 star lists; 6 books have been added with 4 stars with 9 moving up from 3 stars; and 19 books have been added with 3 stars
