Rachel from pace, amore, libri challenged me to predict my own 5 star reads….and I have accepted! This challenge was started by Mercedes on booktube. You pick out 5 books on your TBR that you think are going to be 5-star reads. When you finish, you can come back and make a post letting everyone know how you got on.
In my recent post about books I’m thankful for, I posted a screencap from a conversation with Rachel telling me to read this because it’s painful. And since I live for painful WW II stories, and the last John Boyne book I read, The Heart’s Invisible Furies, was one of the best books I read this year, I would bet a lot of money this will be a 5 star read for me.
Another book I’ve heard is a painful read, I’ve had this on my shelf for about a gazillion years now. I’ve heard amazing things about it, and I think when I’m finally feeling brave enough it’ll be a 5 star read. Hopefully sometime within 2018.
Chelsea’s recommendations of the Lymond series have been without a doubt some of the most impassioned I’ve ever heard, and when we finally do a buddy read in just a few weeks, I will not be surprised at all to find that this is a 5 star book. Also, she told me that Laurent from Captive Prince is inspired from Lymond, as well as Leigh Bardugo’s Nikolai. HIGH PRAISE!
Listen, I don’t even remember what this book is about, but I know Melina Marchetta’s Jellicoe Road left such an imprint on me that I’ve been saving this one (also on my shelf for a gazillion years) when I’m perfectly ready for it, because I fully expect it to be a 5 star read that will probably leave me highly emotional.
This book meets so many of my bookish requirements…I feel like I’ve put it off because I need to read it at the Perfect time to fully appreciate it. Rachel literally shoved this one into my hands so the time should be SOON! I’m hoping for a 5 star read.
Have you read any of these books?? What did you think of them? Do you think I can expect 5 star ratings?? What books do you think will be 5 stars? Let me know! Or make a 5 star prediction post of your own, I’d love to read it!
