This is a kind of unofficial tag that has kind of exploded. I’ve been seeing everywhere on BookTube and Bookstagram, although I have yet to see it in the blogosphere.
Basically this is where you try and predict the books you are going to give 5 star reads and then once you have read them all you do a reflection post to see how right/wrong you were.
I love this idea because I am always trying to find my next favourite, and here are some that I plan to read soon that I think are high contenders.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt: I have wanted the read this for ages but I want to read it at the perfect moment because I just have a feeling I’m going to devour this. I hope it’s a book I won’t want to put down.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith: This is a coming of age book that seems right up my alley and again I’m just waiting for the perfect time to read it.
Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde: This is a recent one I’ve added to my TBR. I was searching for books to read for halloween (because there’s a lot of readathons happening,) and this one popped up and even though it’s a book I’ve heard about my whole life i never realised how well loved it is. People have great things to say about this.
Cats Eye by Margeret Atwood: People say mixed this about this but the synopsis has always intrigued my. Plus, the Neapolitan series has been compared to this so maybe that’s a good sign.
They Both Die in the End by Adam Silvera: I don’t actually know what people think about this one but I do know is that everybody seems to be reading it. I liked Silvera’s second book more than his first so hopefully his books are going to get better and better.
So, those are my predictions. Let’s hope at least one of them becomes a new favourite.
Thanks for reading,
