Which books will I rate 5 stars, if I read them?
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
The Player of Games by Iain M. Banks
Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny
Exhalation by Ted Chiang
Hyperion by Dan Simmons
War with the Newts
Great Gatsby
Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan
Crime and Punishment
Existential Kink by Carolyn Elliott

Each answer is a book. For each listed book, if I read the book and like it enough to rate it 5 stars on The StoryGraph, then it resolves YES. If I give it any other rating or if I don't finish it within a year of spending my first 15 minutes reading it, it resolves NO.

Questions will remain unresolved indefinitely if I don't read a book. I may choose at some point to close out this question and resolve all remaining options (that I haven't started reading) NA. I also resolve the right to resolve an answer NA for any reason within a week of it being added.

I won't bet on this question, except possibly to add answers.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, Otto H. Frank, Mirjam Pressler
