My February TBR (link) is already looking too long for me to add any books to it, but I’ve been meaning to participate in one of this “5-star prediction” challenges in a very long time, and couldn’t pass this opportunity! Hence why I’m making another list of books-to-read in the nearest future, and I hope that I will actually read these books soon!
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (link) topic is Books on my TBR I predict will be 5-star reads, and because my TBR is so vast, and my time to read books is limited, I decided to pick 5 books from my physical TBR that I think I’ll absolutely love, that aren’t first books in the series, and challenge myself to read them during the next couple of months. Wish me luck!
The 5 books I chose are all from different genres and I’m excited to read them all!
FANTASY: The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy, #3) by Katherine Arden
I’m honestly embarrassed that I still haven’t read the final book in my favorite fantasy trilogy! It’s been almost a year since this book came out. I bought it in February / March last year, put it countless times on my nightstand to be the next book I pick up, and it’s still sitting in the tidy pile of “read asap” books next to my TV.
FICTION: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
This was one of my Christmas gifts. My boyfriend really got out of his way to find the hardcover for me and I don’t want to seem ungrateful and let it sit on my TBR shelf for years. Besides, hearing all the praise for this book, I know that I will love it!
HISTORICAL FICTION: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Ruta Sepetys was one of my new favorite authors of 2019, and I immediately bought her other two books – «Between Shades of Gray» and «Salt to the Sea». She writes beautifully, and this book is only 340 pages long, I have no excuse to not pick it immediately!
SCI-FI: Recursion by Blake Crouch
Uhm… I know I will love anything Blake Crouch comes up with, but will I actually give it 5 stars? I don’t know…
His other book, «Dark Matter» was an astounding story, very unique and engaging, but I still didn’t feel like it deserved 5 stars. Maybe I’m more drawn to the subject of memories? We shall find out!
THRILLER: Lethal White (Cormoran Strike, #4) by Robert Galbraith
It seems like Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling) books are not very popular here or on YouTube. I saw only a couple of bloggers mention the Cormoran Strike books, but I actually really loved these crime novels!
The first one was the best, in my opinion, and the third left many things unanswered, so I’m excited to keep reading about Cormoran and Robin, and see them solve crimes while trying to also figure out the clues on my own.
This is not a long list, and there are many more unread books on my shelves that I’m sure I’ll love, but for now we will stick with these five! I’m planning to include them in my March TBR!
What books on your TBR you predict to be 5-star reads? Have you read any of the books on my list? What did you think of them?
