About two weeks ago I predicted 4 books that I would give 5 Stars. Now I have read all of those books and am ready to share with you my verdict plus some book 5 star predictions.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – Overall I wasn’t disappointed with this book and it’s probably my favourite Neil Gaiman book I’ve read since Stardust. I loved the atmosphere and magic but I never felt invested in it.
Verdict: – Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman Review.
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters – I knew I would love this book and I did. The writing and the characters captured my attention from the first page and did not let it go. I really look forward to reading more from Waters. The only thing about this book that disappointed me was the ending.
Verdict: – The Night Watch by Sarah Waters Review.
Lethal White by Robert Galbraith – I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book for ages now and it did not let me down.
Verdict: – Lethal White by Robert Galbraith Review.
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North – This is the only book from my last predictions post that I was disappointed with. I feel like, for certain books on my shelf, there’s a reason why they’ve been there for three years. I actually ended up DNFing this 100 pages in.
Some more predictions….
What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli – The authors, the cover, the title, the setting, the synopsis. Everything about this book is screaming at me telling me I’m going to love it. I couldn’t be more excited for it.
Misery by Stephen King – When going through Stephen Kings most popular works this is the one that peaked my interest. I will 100% be reading this for Halloween this year.
Still Life by Louise Penny – This is the first in her ongoing detective novels. I’ve been looking for a good detective series for ages now and I think I may have found one I will really like.
Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz – I love a mystery this time of year and this looks like it’s a good one.
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters – Now, I am a little scared to read this book because it looks like it could perhaps have paranormal stuff going on in it (which is my worst nightmare and I try and avoids stuff like that at all cost). But, I can’t wait to dive into more Sarah Waters.
Dracula by Bram Stoker – Maybe? I’m not sure about this one as I’m not the biggest fan of Vampires but I’m intrigued to read the original Vampire story.
