5 Star Predictions #3 // 2022

Hi Friends,
I thought it was time to guess some 5 star reads. I picked 5 books that I believe will be highly rated books for me. All of the books are young adult books, because that is what I primarily read. Weirdly enough, my last five star predictions post included some 2022 releases. This time I will be including some 2022 releases as well as previously released books.

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord (January 2020)
I have seen mixed reviews on this book, but I have a feeling that I’d love it. It is a YA enemies-to-lovers that includes food and Twitter. You all know that I am a sucker for a cute YA contemporary.

The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky (April 2021)
Don’t know why I am predicting this to be five stars. If nothing else, it has to do with the fact that Mary Shelley interests me. The premise is very intriguing, and it is bound to have a lot of twists.


You’ll Be the Death of Me by Karen M. McManus (November 2021)
This is described as a dark ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’. Three friends’ ditch day turns scary, when things go fatally wrong. I am always in the mood for a good YA thriller, and Karen McManus books usually rank pretty high for me.

Places We’ve Never Been by Kasie West (May 2022)
This one might be a letdown, since West’s last book release, Sunkissed, was a big disappointment. Still, I normally always rate her books around 5 stars. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be another amazing book from her.

I Guess I Live Here Now by Claire Ahn (May 2022)
This one is giving me Katharine McGee’s ‘American Royals’ meets ‘The Princess Diaries’ vibes. This book takes places in Korea, and is a ‘found family’ story, which isn’t typically something I gravitate to. But I hear it includes a lot of family drama and hidden secrets, which is something I do love.

I am not sure how accurate these predictions will turn out to be, but I am hoping for the best. Check back for my reviews on each book (if I actually read them) to see my final rating and thoughts. Better yet, follow the blog to get post notifications.

Until The Next Chapter,

5 Star Predictions #2

Hi Friends,
Today, I am doing a “5 Star Book Prediction” post. I have done one of these in the past, which didn’t go so well. Unfortunately, I only managed to read one book from that list, and it didn’t turn out to be a 5 star read, either. So, I don’t have high hopes that I will actually pick up any of these books. Still, it is a fun post to do. I decided to do a mix of older titles and 2022 book releases, since my TBRs include a mix of old and new books.

How to Break a Boy by Laurie Devore (2017)
Who doesn’t like a good fake-dating story? The plot reminds me of “If I’m Being Honest” by Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberley, which I gave 5 stars. There is something real about somebody choosing to be a better version of themselves. Maybe this stems from my love of “A Christmas Carol”, but I usually enjoy that type of story. Also, the fake-dating aspect gives me even more reassurance that it will turn out to be a 5 star book.

Lovely War by Julie Berry (2019)
This one might be wishful thinking, because I am not 100% sure that it will get a 5 star rating from me. It is on the list for the sole reason that it is beloved by tons of readers. I want to be one of those readers. So, I am using the power of positivity to believe that I will love this book as much as other. The plot sounds amazing and unique, but historical fiction has never really been my thing. Here’s hoping this book changed my opinion of the genre.

All This Time by Mikki Daughtry, Rachael Lippincott (2020)
I predict that this book will be an automatic 5 star read for me. This year, I read “Five Feet Apart” by these two authors, and loved it. Honestly, that book broke me. The plot sounds heartbreaking, which I seem to be drawn to these days. And, it is my favorite genre, YA contemporary. I don’t think this book will let me down, so my expectations are set pretty high.

These Deadly Games by Diana Urban (2022)
This sounds like a horror/thriller movie that would give me the chills. If you know me and horror movies, then you know that making my skin crawl is pretty hard. The whole kidnapping and dangerous game plot is thrilling. I am going to bet that this will be a 5 star book that might even spook me a but.

No Filter and Other Lies by Crystal Maldonado (2022)
When I read the plot for this book my jaw dropped, and I want to read it like now. It is a mix of high school drama, social media, going viral and catfishing. I haven’t read anything similar, but I am betting that I am going to have a great time reading it. 5 star read? I think yes!

 
Practice Girl by Estelle Laure (2022)
This book reminds be a lot of “The Duff” by Kody Keplinger. I haven’t had the chance to read that book, but I am a big fan of the movie adaption. The book focuses on labeling people, and making them loose their self worth. It can be a form of bullying. I don’t read a ton of books where the characters push the boundaries of social norms, and that is something I need to work on. Still, I am almost certain that this book will get a 5 star rating from me. However, I could be projecting my love of the film version of “The Duff” on to the book. Let’s hope that’s not the case

That is going to be it for my 5 star predictions. While writing this post, I realize that it is harder than you think to foreseen a books rating. Especially, when one has been disappointment by many books that seemed like 5 star reads. Anyhow, I am thinking good thoughts and know that there will be more 5 star reads in 2022. Give me a like, share and follow.

Until The Next Chapter,

5 Star Predictions #1 // 2021

Hello book lovers,
I am back to blogging! I took a little break this week, but I am very excited about today’s post. I am going to talk about my 5 star book predictions. I typically stay in my comfort zone when it comes to reading, so I can normally tell the books I am going to enjoy. I do want to branch out in my reading this year, but these are the books that I have a good feeling I will rate highly.

Fool Me Twice by Carrie Aarons: After the death of her best friend, due to cancer, she sets out to complete her bucket list. One of the major tasks on the list is getting back at Lincoln Kolb, her late best friends jerk of an ex-boyfriend. However, these enemies might not start to look past their bad blood.

I love a good revenge turned love story! I feel like this book could either be great, or just average. I am hoping for the best, and going to predict that I will give it a 5 star rating.

Not My Problem by Ciara Smyth: Aideen can’t solve her own problems, so she takes it upon herself to solve one for her overwhelmed classmate. After her act of kindness more of her classmates want Aideen’s help.

This book gives me teen movie vibes, which I am here for. I can picture this as a Netflix movie one day for sure. I think the concept could be very funny and I am looking forward to picking it up. It won’t be released until May 2021, still I will be reading it as soon as possible.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab: Addie LaRue made a deal of a lifetime with the devil. She will live forever, yet be forgot by everyone. She tries to leave her mark on the world and be remembered however she can.

I don’t usually go for these kinds of books, although I am a big fan of V.E. Schwabs middle grade works. This story peaked my interested from it’s release, and I have a good feeling it will become a favorite of mine.

What I Like About You by Marisa Kante: Girl meets boy online. They become the best of internet friends. Girl moves to a new town. Boy happens to live in that town. Girl hides her online identity from boy. A tale as old as time, right?

This is Kante’s debut novel and it sounds adorable. I do see a bit of similarities to Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia, and I could see there being some possible anxiety representation in this book. I find the plot a typical cute, lighthearted contemporary story that I love.

Admission by Julie Buxbaum: Chloe thought she had the perfect life with admission into her dream school, a celebrity mom and amazing prom date. However, things get less than perfect when her mom gets arrested for participating a college admission scandal. Chloe must come face to face with the truth and everything she has taken for granted before.

You all have probably heard about the real college admissions scandal that rocked Hollywood. I knew that some form of fiction would be made from it, though I figured it would be a Lifetime movie, still I think this will be an interesting read. I haven’t heard anyone talk about this book, so I am looking forward to discovering if I like it as much as I expect.

Those are all my star predictions as of now, and I am curious to find out if my intuition is as good as I believe. Please support my blog by liking and sharing this post. I would e honored if you followed the blog as well.

Until The Next Chapter,
