This week’s topic is a fun one: Books on my TBR I predict will be 5-star reads. We both have hefty stacks we’re hoping to get through this year, so we had plenty of options. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for another great Top Ten Tuesday!
The Dragon Republic by R. F. Kuang
I’m absolutely loving The Poppy War, and I fully expect to love the sequel.
The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay
Tigana was one of my favorite fantasy reads in a while. Now that I’m used to Kay’s style and know what to expect, I think I will really enjoy this classic of his.
Summer by Ali Smith
Each book in Smith’s Seasonal Quartet has blown me away, and I never tire of her writing style. I fully expect to be just as impressed as ever by the last book in her incredible quartet.
Darkmans by Nicola Barker
I found this one by looking up interviews with Ali Smith where she discussed her favorite authors. It sounds so bizarre I can’t even summarize it. I can’t wait.
The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
This is one of Sanderson fans’ favorite books, and its premise is intriguing. I’ve yet to be disappointed by him yet!
Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
I read Normal People a few months ago and it was such an engrossing read, I’m hoping this one will be too.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
This one has been on the New York Times Bestseller list for so long, it has to have broken some record by now. It’s been on my TBR list for awhile now and I’m looking forward to reading what all the hype is about.
How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse: Book One of the Thorne Chronicles
Book by K. Eason
I got this one for Christmas and have been savoring it because the synopsis makes it sound like such a fun sci-fi adventure.
The Wave by Susan Casey
Casey has a way of writing non-fiction books that completely draw me in, though it helps that she always seems to write about topics that I’m keen on. This one is about huge, ship-destroying waves and the surfers who seek them out.
The Great Fire by Shirley Hazzard
I picked this one up on a whim at a local bookshop and I fell in love with the writing style. Even if the storyline isn’t completely satisfying to me, I think it will still be a 5-star book because of Hazzard’s writing style.
Where the Crawdads Sing is an excellent book. The narrative is so good that unreal situation seems real. Each and every character seemed so real and while reading your heart goes out for Kya the marsh girl, you cry with her as if she is someone close to you.
