This week’s TTT topic is “Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads”. I honestly love this idea! I’m super picky and rarely give out 5-star ratings, but I’m always on the look out for new favorites (hence why I’m always asking “Are you my book?” ha). So basically these are all the books I’m super hype for and have super high expectations for.
Wow, after composing this list, I didn’t realize I was excited for so many New Adult romances and adult fantasies books?!? Fingers crossed I didn’t jinx myself with these predictions!
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
1. House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve adored all of SJM’s books (with the exception of that certain ACOTAR novella, but we’re not gonna talk about that) and I have full faith that her adult debut will be a fantastical, fun, and smutty read! I need to go make sure I remember to pre-order this book…
2. Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
Ever since I first heard of this book, I’ve been dying to get my hands on it! Witches, a hate-to-love romance, and YA that’s really NA? I’m gonna grab my wallet and run out to the bookstore now…
3. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo is another favorite author that I have full faith in. I’ve heard some mixed things on this novel, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
4. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Yes, this book is still on my TBR. I seriously don’t understand why I keep waiting: I’ve heard nothing but incredible things about this book!
5. The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson
After reading Melanie @ Meltotheany‘s rave review about this book, I knew I had to read this amazing book…and I still need to read it (obviously). But I know it’ll be an astounding read!
6. Beach Read by Emily Henry
This is one of my most anticipated releases for 2020 (why do I have to wait till May???) and just know it’ll be an easy 5-stars. A hate-to-love romance featuring writers? And a book writing competition? I could def commit a crime to get a hold of an ARC of this book.
7. Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi
Pop singers! College! New Adult! Romance! I’ve heard such good things about this book and I can’t wait to pick it up.
8. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Another bandwagon I still need to hop on! But with the fan base behind this book, I have no doubt it’ll be an easy 5 stars.
9. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
And another series and author I still need to read! My writing buddy has really been trying to get me to read this book/series, and I know it’ll be incredible…but there are just so many books, ya know? Some day soon, I promise.
10. Renegades by Marissa Meyer
I am TRASH for superhero movies and stories, so there is no doubt it my mind that I’ll love this book. Honestly, I don’t know how so long has passed and I still haven’t read it? I feel like I turned around and suddenly the whole trilogy was out!
Have you read any of these books? Do you think these books will live up to my predictions? Which one should I pick up first?
