I like predicting what upcoming reads are going to be 5 stars! I think I’m pretty good at it, especially when it’s series/authors I know I already love, which is going to be most of the list.
Here are my 2018 picks for five star reads!
Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm!
Ravensong by TJ Klune
Pub Date: July 31, 2018
Wolfsong is one of my favorite books, and definitely one of the best TJ Klune’s ever. It’s the most unique paranormal werewolf books out there. It’s poetic and emotional. It has Ox and Joe, and I love Ox and Joe. I’ve been so excited for Ravensong, because of more Ox and Joe, but also for Gordo and Mark. I have a feeling it’s going to break me.
Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff
Pub Date: September 4, 2018
Oh my gosh, I am so excited for this book! Nevernight is one of the best Fantasy series I’ve ever read and I know that the conclusion is going to be seriously epic. Plus, come on! Look at that cover! It screams 5 star read!
Vengeful by VE Schwab
Pub Date: September 25, 2018
I just finished Vicious not too long ago, and it was SO good! It looks like Vengeful is going to be about Victors protege Sydney. She was probably the only mostly good character in the entire story, so I’m a little nervous to read how Vengeful will wreck her. I don’t want that!
Dark Age by Pierce Brown
Pub Date: September 11, 2018
I’m a little bit nervous about Dark Age. Pierce Brown’s writing is so phenomenal, I know that it’s going to be an excellent read. I’m just not sure this story isn’t going to piss me off. I know that Iron Gold already started me feeling frustrated with the characters, and what’s happening. It doesn’t bode well for my feelings on Dark Age.
What if it’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
Pub Date: October 9, 2018
What If It’s Us should be a five star read! You have Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli who both know how to write a good and realistic LGBT+ story. The cover is adorable, and I’m counting on Becky to give us a happy ending! This one’s an instant buy.
