PREDICTING 5 STAR READS // books I think I'll love, adore & devour

Is my TBR pile huge? Yes. Do I buy more books anyway? Yes.

I have made a rule for myself to only get books I think I’ll love and I have so many of them right now. I’ve seen this post go around and it seems super fun, so let’s just do it.

LORD OF SHADOWS by Cassandra Clare

lord of shadows
Yes, this is my most shamed. I WILL READ IT. I am scared so I’ve been putting it off but I promise it will happen soon. If you haven’t read the Shadowhunter Chronicles then I honestly don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor

Omg, I have NOTHING but amazing things. I don’t exactly know what it’s about apart from a librarian and a lost city. I hear it’s magical and wonderful and I NEED IT NOW

CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell

carry on
I literally freaking adore Rainbow Rowell and her writing is my fave yet I’ve only read 2 of her books. I know that I’ll just gobble it and I NEED TO READ IT. I adored the fanfic in Fangirl so I know I’ll love. Literally, don’t ask why I haven’t read any of her other books.

A THOUSAND PERFECT NOTES by C. G. Drews

the ashtonishing color of after
Ya’ll probably know Paper Fury and that her humour is the best. I also know that this book will destroy my entire being. I have an ARC of it and as I said I’m in a contemporary mood so I’m definitely going to get to it asap.

THIS SAVAGE SONG by V. E. Schwab

this savage song
I’ve been reading ADSOM and although I do like it, it’s a little slow and also not YA so I can’t relate as much. I have a feeling I’ll be a die-hard fan for this duology from book one. It’s about monsters (which sounds awesome especially from Victoria Schwab) and that’s about all I know.

CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by Tomi Adeyemi

children of blood and bone
I don’t know where you’ve been if you haven’t heard of this book yet but it’s been everywhere and everyone loves it and I’m sitting here needing to find out for myself. But alas, I’m a terrible reader when it comes to timing. I will get to it as soon as I’m in the mood for high fantasy

This book has been everywhere (yet again, are you surprised?). I hear it’s sad and beautiful and I am not prepared. It arrived at my house a few days and I screamed when I saw it. ARGHHH I am so freaking excited!!!

TASH HEARTS TOLSTOY by Kathryn Olmsbee

tash hearts tolstoy
I’ve been doing Russian history at school and when I read the synopsis I knew I had to read it. It’s got online creators and I know I’ll love it. It sounds geeky and adorable and why haven’t I read it yet? I honestly don’t know.

NICE TRY, JANE SINNER by Lianne Oelke

nice try jane sinner
This book sounds adorable. I think it has reality tv and college and I don’t really know what it’s about, just that I need this book in my life. Plus the cover is my aesthetic.

    I’m proud to say that STRANGE THE DREAMER is beautiful. The beginning is like “EH WTF IS HAPPENING” and then it’s amazing and magical and gooey and beautiful and LAZLO <3
    I still cannot believe you haven't read Starfish yet. I'm always scared when people read because Idk if it's a good book or just personally a book I really liked. If that makes any sense? Because it just mean to much to me for many personal individual reasons so I'm anxious to see if you will like it.
    The same also goes for The Astonishing Color of After. FOR ME THIS BOOK MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME BECAUSE OF THE ASIAN REP AND I CANNOT EVEN AHHH. It's so GOOD and I found myself in Leigh SO MUCH so please please like it's beautiful. AND OH MY GOSH THE WRITING!!
    To Kill a Kingdom is a good story but DHAJHDI it's not amazing and doesn't blow me away at all. But the premise and writing and dynamic!! PERFECTION.
    I'm SO glad to see my FOODY books on there, getting the attention they deserve. Please let me know when you pick them up and tell me your thoughts! And I think i've screamed about ATPN enough soooo YOU KNOW HOW AMAZING THAT BOOK IS OK.
    Nice try Jane Sinner LOoks SOOOO GOOOD OMGG

    Starfish is INCREDIBLE. My favourite book of the year and I doubt it will lose that position. I also absoutely adore Carry On – I reread it ever year 😛 The Gentleman’s Guide was one of my favourites last year and I honestly can’t wait to reread it I loved it so much. Hope your predictions are right and that you’ll love all of these 🙂

    Ooooh this was such an interesting post!!! I definitely hope you give A Thousand Perfect Notes, To Kill a Kingdom, and Children of Blood and Bone 5 stars!! The latter two were 5-star reads for me, and ATPF was a 4-star. All will definitely make it to my favorites of the year. ♥ I also hope to ADORE Ace of Shades, The Gentlemen’s Guide, and Starfish. 🙂

    The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is amazing; I loved it so much!! The characters are everything and I loved Mackenzi Lee’s writing style; it really drew me into the story. Starfish is also one of my favorite books! It has amazing Asian and anxiety representation, so I hope you’ll like it too. 😍
