5 Star TBR Predictions

Top Ten Tuesday(6)

I saw a video on Regan’s channel Peruse Project that was “5 Star TBR Predictions” and it looked like so much fun so I thought I would give it a shot as well! Basically I will be picking books off of my TBR that I believe will be 5 star reads for me, I don’t rate a ton of books 5 stars they have to be PERFECTION for that. Hopefully I won’t be setting the bar too high for these and will still enjoy them when I get to them!

Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor

So I have read two other books of Laini’s and ADORED them so with that alongside the fact that the synopsis sounds amazing for this book I can pretty much guarantee I’ll love it. The writing will be A+ because ya know….it’s Laini Taylor and she writes so beautifully plus her unique world building and mythology is always good too so really I can’t think of a single reason why this book wouldn’t be a five star read for me.

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

I’ve honestly heard nothing but good things about this book (and series) and I KNOW Sanderson is a fantastic fantasy author and I’m positive this book will include a great magic system and a unique plot and world. For me a good fantasy book will have great world building and I just feel like Sanderson will deliver that. Therefore I have a pretty good feeling I’ll end up rating this a full five stars.

The Child Thief by Brom

“Peter Pan” is pretty much my FAVORITE fairy tale/ story and I’m pretty much down for any kind of retelling of it. I also LOVE dark retellings and “The Child Thief” is definitely a very dark retelling. I’m really hoping it’ll be a great, unique retelling with a creative spin on Peter Pan and also full of dark happenings. If that all proves true I’ll probably be rating it 5 stars!

Eon by Alison Goodman

Not only have I heard quite a few good things about this book/duology but the premise just sounds like something I know I’ll love: dragons + a badass female protagonist. I also cheated a bit and started reading part of it and really enjoyed what I read!

Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I think the idea of a “retelling” of “The Iliad” is very creative and unique so I’m all for it! I also like that it’s a M/M romance between Achilles and Patroclus, honestly I just know everything from the setting to the characters will more than likely be 5 stars for me.

Now I Rise by Kiersten White

I absolutely LOVED the first book, I thought the characters were absolutely fantastic andΒ  all of the political intrigue was fascinating. I expect nothing less from the sequel!

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

I really loved Thomas’s book “The Darkest Corners” it was so suspenseful, dark, and twisted. I think this one sounds just as twisted and I’m super excited to read it, if it’s as dark as the other book I will more than likely be giving it a full 5 star rating!

Golden Son by Pierce Brown

If you’ve read “Red Rising” you’ll understand why this is going to be a 5 star read. Bring it on, I’m ready to be emotionally destroyed again.

Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff

“Stormdancer” was A-MA-ZING with all of the plot twists, world building, and badass characters! Honestly I’m expecting the sequel to at least be just as good, and if it is it is a definite 5 star rating from this girl!

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

I’m very, very excited to read this book especially since it seems similar to “The Hate U Give” which I thought was an amazing, powerful book. I expect nothing less from “Dear Martin” I’m extremely confident that I will love it. I’m actually going to be reading it here within the next two weeks as I got it from the library!

    I’ve only read Golden Son and Song of Achilles, but they were both easily five-star reads for me. I hope you enjoy them both! (Make sure you have tissues.)

      Thanks Stephanie! Glad you loved those ones, as you can probably tell from the post I’m sure I’ll love them as well. And trust me after reading Red Rising I will most definitely have tissues for the sequel and Song of Achilles…..well I know I’ll need them for that one too! πŸ™‚

    Strange the Dreamer is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The only thing I can compare it to is Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but even then it’s not exactly the same haha. Laini Taylor is honestly a creative genius. I really think you’ll love it! The only issue I had was that it just took me forever to read?? and I’m not even sure why, haha.

    I really want to read Dear Martin!! It sounds like it’s going to be super powerful.

      It’s a pretty big book so I can imagine! I did the same thing with DoSaB where it just felt like it too me forever but I still loved it, it’s a weird thing but I understand you completely! I know I’ll love this one too though just because Laini Taylor is seriously amazing, you’re right she is a creative genius and her writing is gorgeous!

      I just finished Dear Martin and it was great on top of being powerful as well, it packed a lot of punch for a 210 page book! πŸ™‚

    I didn’t know The Child Thief was a retelling of Peter Pan! Imay have to look it up now on Goodreads, because that caught my attention!

    I read Now I Rise and it was SOO GOOD! Definitely a great sequel and so much better than AID! I have also Strange The Dreamer on my TBR, and I’m really excited after hearing amazing things about it😊.

      Yep, it’s the whole reason I bought it haha! I love me a Peter Pan retelling!

      What?! Better than And I Darken! Well I definitely need to get my hands on it now!

      I’ve also heard nothing but good things about Strange the Dreamer, hopefully we both enjoy it! πŸ™‚

    I think that both The Final Empire and The Song of Achilles will also be 5 star reads for me. I have heard so many amazing things about both of them and they sound like books I would love. πŸ™‚
    I have read Eon a few years ago and really enjoyed it! I hope you end up enjoying the rest of it when you get around to it.
    This is also a really amazing idea for a post, I should definitely do it as well! πŸ˜€

      Same! Both of them have so much awesome hype that I just know I’ll love them. I hope you enjoy them as well Anna when you get to them! I hope they’re amazing for both of us!
      Glad you loved Eon! I hardly ever here anyone talk about those books and it seems odd to me when they see like such great books!
      You should definitely do up one of these posts I’d love to see what books you think you’ll love! πŸ™‚
