Top 5 Tuesday | Birdie’s 2018 Five Star Predictions!

Top Five

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.

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.

What If It's Us


About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. I am so excited for Darkdawn but I’m not sure that I’m mentally prepared for what that book will do to me. Jay Kristoff is so ruthless!!! And vengeful! I totally forgot about that one! Great list!
    Thanks for participating – added you to the list 🙂


  2. Darkdawn is definitely going to be a 5 star read for me too, I just know it!!!!! MY BODY IS READY FOR IT!!!! (No its not I’m scared RIP everyone.)

    Also super excited for What If It’s Us~ can’t wait to see what Becky and Adam created together!!!


  3. What if it’s Us! I am really anticipating this book, even if I only read one book by both of these authors so far, I LOVED them, and this book seems so, so amazing. Also, I really like this cover haha. I hope you’ll end up enjoying all of these 😀 ❤
