I’ve seen this floating around the book community for quite some time. I love seeing lists of books that people are pretty much convinced will be a 5 star read. And I also love seeing people compare their actual ratings once they’ve read them! If I remember about this, I hope to do an update as to how I actually rated all of these. I plan to read most of them soon, so I hope I remember to update!

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming topics in May – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!

A court of frost and starlight

I’m starting with the obvious – A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas. Pretty much everything I’ve read of hers, I’ve rated 5 stars. Her writing is captivating and her characters I want as best friends. I’ve got this one on preorder and I can’t wait!!!


Yet another obvious one for me is Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff. This man can do no wrong in my eyes!!! He can write spins and twists in the fantasy and science fiction genres that you never expect. He somehow always has the element of surprise and is known for being ruthless with his characters. And this one has a character named Lemon Fresh…. I NEED to know what this is all about!

Mistborn trilogy

Next is the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I know this one will be 5 stars. I just know it. It has every single element that I look for in a high fantasy series. The plot and the characters sound amazing, but the magic system sounds like something I will need to devour completely. Almost everyone that has the same reading tastes as I do loves this one. I just need to stop being so afraid of it and read it already!!

The lies of Locke Lamora

Along the same lines as Mistborn, The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch is one that I know for a fact will get 5 stars. The premise is intriguing, but it’s the character of Locke that I know will win my heart with his humour and smart assed mouth. I have a friend who kept messaging me with funny lines in the book and I couldn’t stop laughing. There was literally no context – just one liners. But I laughed so hard all the same!

The nightengale

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah has been on my shelves since the week it was released. I had heard great things in early reviews and the author seemed to be highly praised. And ever since, this book is consistently getting 5 star ratings. I know that I’m going to get kicked hard in the emotions with this one – and I’m so ready for it!




Does anyone else do this though – you know that you’re going to love a book so you hold off on reading it. For some reason, when I know I’m going to love a book, I’m hesitant to pick it up because I feel like I need undivided attention for it. Sadly, my life is always crazy so undivided attention is almost impossible! I need to get over it and read them already! What books do you predict will be 5 stars?

Until next time, happy reading!
