TTT #348| Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is throwback freebie, so I get to choose a topic I haven’t done or want to do again. I’ve decided to revisit books on my TBR I predict will be 5-star reads. I recently did a five star prediction post, but they’re always fun to do! Let’s take a look at some of my predictions.

Funny Story – Emily Henry

So far I’ve given all books I’ve read by Emily Henry five stars and I have a feeling that this one will also follow that pattern. I’m more shocked I haven’t read it yet.The idea of these characters who both had their exes fall in love with each other and fall in love themselves in an interesting concept. I can’t wait to see how this story plays out.

Honey Cut – Sierra Simone

Salt Kiss was a book that really surprised me, because I didn’t enjoy Priest by this author at all. Honey Cut is the sequel and this arranged marriage is going to take a turn that none of them were expecting I think.

The Book of Doors – Gareth Brown

If I remember correctly, The Book of Doors was pitched for fans of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and that made me add it to my TBR immediately. Also, this book just sounds so interesting. The book of doors can take our main character everywhere, but there are also people who want this magical book. I can’t wait to read it.

Kingdom of Ash – Sarah J. Maas

I really should be ashamed of myself that I haven’t read the final book in the Throne of Glass series. Isabelle and I even went to the bookstore on release day to pick it up. This is one of my favorite series and I know it’s going to hurt. I guess I just don’t want to see my favorite series end either.

The Poisons We Drink – Bethany Baptiste

The cover was the first thing that caught my eye, but the idea of our main character making illegal love potions to support her family sounds interesting. Add on top of that the side effects of making these potions is not a walk in the park. The Poisons We Drink sounds like an interesting one.

Every Exquisite Thing – Laura Steven

Laura Steven wrote one of my favorite books of all time (The Exact Opposite of Okay) and I’m mad at myself for not keeping up with her new releases, haha. Every Exquisite Thing released in September 2023 and sounds so good. This is a YA horror-thriller-romance retelling of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Sign me up! Also, look at this stunning cover.

Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow – Jessica Townsend

Nevermoor is one of my favorite middle grade series and I’ve been waiting to read the third book closer to the release date of book four. Unfortunately, book four keeps getting pushed back, so I think I may just pick this up and see if we ever get the next one.

The Shadow Wand – Laurie Forest

The first two books of The Black Witch Chronicles were five star reads for me and I expect the third book to be one as well. This series is very intense and emotional and I really have no clue how it’s going to end. The fifth and final book releases next year, so I have time to be ready before that comes out.

Forever, Interrupted – Taylor Jenkins Reid

Taylor Jenkins Reid is an author that has made me cry at least once a book while reading. Her stories hit in all the feels and I expect Forever, Interrupted to be the same way. I only have a few backlist books to go before I’m caught up with what she’s written.

The Cost of Knowing – Brittney Morris

Slay by this author is one of my favorite books and one I think about often. I really should reread it as well. The Cost of Knowing is the book Brittney published after that one and I’ve had it on so many TBRs. It’s even on my 24 books in 2024 list, so I’m determined to read it this year. I can’t imagine how awful it is to touch a person or object and predict the future. Even more so when he predicts his own brother’s death. Can he prevent this from happening?


So those are ten books I expect to be five star reads! Have you read any of these? Or what are some of your 5-star predictions? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
