#SixforSunday is hosted by A Little But A Lot and each week, there’s a different prompt, and you list six books that fit the prompt. The theme for April is Taking on the TBR pile.
This week’s #SixForSunday topic is Books From Your TBR That You Predict Will Be 5-Stars, and this was an incredibly difficult list for me to write. I don’t give 5-star ratings out very often, because for me, a 5-star read results in a book hangover. I give 4.5-star ratings which get rounded up to 5-stars because Goodreads has decided that half-stars don’t exist, and they want to make everyone’s life difficult, but those books aren’t truly 5-star reads for me. Below are six books that I think might end up being 5-stars, but they’re more likely to be 4.5-star reads for me.
The Wicked King by Holly Black: I recently finished reading The Cruel Prince, and I gave it four stars. The book ended in a way that paved the way for a lot of exciting things to happen in the sequel, and I think it will be an exciting, and stressful, book to read. My friend also says that The Wicked King is the best book in the trilogy, so if I gave the first book four stars, I’ll likely rate the second book higher.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: This is the only book on the list where I feel certain that it will be a 5-star read. I’ve heard amazing things about The Nightingale, and since I focused on studying World War II in University, I always enjoy stories that take place during this time. I also find that Historical Fiction gives me a book hangover because if it’s well written, it’s very immersive, and I end up feeling a flood of emotions while reading it.
Well Met by Jen DeLuca: The premise of this book sounds like a lot of fun, and I think it’s going to be the type of book that makes me laugh-out-loud while reading it. I like books that make me laugh, and if the romance in this book is cute, I predict that I’ll give it a high rating.
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett: I don’t know why, but I have a feeling that I’m going to really enjoy this book. I’m in love with its cover, and the premise sounds really good. I’ve also been hearing a lot of good things about Jenn Bennett lately, and I’m excited to check out her books soon.
You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle: I have heard so many good things about this book, and I am so excited to read it whenever it arrives on my doorstep. I think this book will make me laugh, and the romance looks like it’ll be cute, so I’m going to guess that I’ll give it a high rating.
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren: This is another book where I just have a feeling that I’m going to give it a high rating once I read it. I like Christina Lauren, and I think their books are a lot of fun to read, and this is one of their higher-rated books on Goodreads. I hope that this book doesn’t disappoint and that it ends up being a 5-star read.
Have you read any of these books? What are some of your 5-star predictions?
