Happy Friday Book Dragons!
I’ve been wanting to start doing this for awhile and never got around to it. Over the years I’ve become really good at filtering out the books i’ll love from the ones i’ll hate, but can I predict which books will be five star reads? It’ll be interesting to see if I’m right once I’ve read them.
If David Owen writes it, I will definitely both read and love it. It makes sense that his latest offering made this list, a copy fell through my letter box last week and has gone straight to the top of my TBR pile. I’ve been eager to get my hands on it since I picked up a sampler at last year’s YALC. I know this will be a five star read, I can feel it in my bones!
And the Stars Were Burning Bright by Danielle Jawando:
I jumped at the chance to review this when the email dropped in my inbox! It’s going to be a tough read, but also an important one. Danielle talked about it at a recent blogger event and it sounds brilliant, I’m excited give it a read!.
I was sold from the second I heard about Thorn, this sounds right up my street and ticks all the right boxes. It’s also a retelling of The Goose Girl and I adore retellings! I have a good feeling about this one and confident that it will be a five star read for me. I’m hoping to read this some time in Feb so check back late Feb/early March to read my review.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia:
This was an impulse buy, I’d heard brilliant things about it and been told the mental health rep was good. There’s something about it though, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is that’s calling out to me. I think Eliza will be a five star read, I’m basing this one on gut instinct. It rarely let’s me down.
So that’s my first round of five star predictions done, have you read any of these or made your own predictions? Drop them in the comments, I’d love to read them!
