It seems like everyone is doing a Five-Star Read Predictions post, and I have to say it’s been looking like a lot of fun. Reading Steph’s at Lost: Purple Quill was just the push I needed. So, thanks Steph! And thanks for letting me use your ‘Five Star Predictions’ image. It’s gorgeous!
This challenge was started by Mercedes on booktube. Basically, you pick out 5 books on your TBR that you think are going to be 5-star reads. After you read them, you write a follow up post letting everyone know how your predictions panned out.
Here are mine!
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Shwab
I think this one could be cheating. I’ve already read the first book, and given it 5 stars. I’ve given most of VE Schwab’s books 5 stars. So far, everything she written has been exceptional. Plus, this world is fantastical. I love the magic in music, and the balance of good and evil in both main characters. It has everything needed for a 5 star read.
Withered + Sere by TJ Klune
I’m almost finished with TJ Klune’s entire back list. Next on my To Read is Withered + Sere, and TJ Klune meets Dystopia = guaranteed five stars. I have a feeling it’s going to be pretty dark, but I’m ready for another serious Klune read. I’m prepared to fall in love.
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
The Start of Me and You is a shot in the dark. It’s a book I’ve been eyeing for a couple years, and I really really want to love it. There’s this strong feeling inside me, and it’s telling me that I’m going to fall in love. I think that’s part of the reason I haven’t read it yet though. What if it turns out I’m wrong. I’m gambling.
Iron Gold by Pierce Brown
Hopefully Pierce Brown can pull it off again, because the Red Rising trilogy was so insanely good. Sometimes spin off series don’t measure up, but somehow I don’t think that will be an issue here. I’m so eager for more Sevro and Darrow. I can’t wait to have this in my hands!
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
More Neal Shusterman! He’s another one of those authors who almost always writes five star books. Nobody makes me think, gets me philosphizing, the way Neal Shusterman does. Plus, I’m looking forward to the continuation the Arc of the Scythe series.
