Hello lovelies! Welcome to day 5!
There are so many wonderful books out there and some of them just speak to me. I think the following books are going to be 5 stars reads either because of the plot, the characters or based on reviewers I trust.
These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
I am Shakespeare trash. I read his work for fun and learn lines to impress my friends. So when I heard that there was going to be a Romeo and Juliet retelling with Asian rep??? I just knew that I would love this. It has also been very popular in the book community and that doesn’t always mean that it’s good but I trust the communtiy for this one.
House of Fire and Blood (Crescent city #1) by Sarah J, Maas
I love every word this woman writes; I would gladly read her groceries’ list at this point. I don’t really know what the plot for Crescent city is to be honest but I read so many raving reviews and seen so much fan art that I know it’s going to be fantastic.
The Poppy War by R.F Kuang
I got a book twitter in the summer and this series has been everywhere – I really mean everywhere. I don’t now why but I just have this feeling that this book is going to destroy me…and I can’t wait.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
A trans person on twitter I’m following (can’t remember their name sorry!) actually said that one of their family members was misgendering them and after reading the book that same member started using their pronouns. Imagine the power this book hasi
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
RAVING reviews, beautiful cover, POC rep and a retelling?? What more could I need?
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
This is my sister’s favourite series and apparently there’s going to be the famous “lift your hips for me love” which I’ve also seen everywhere so there’s that.
Ties that tether by Jane Ighara
First of all I am here for the representation. As a Black woman living in a predominantly white are , I can relate to the challenge between marrying a Black partner and “preserving my culture” or marrying someone from a different skin colour and how it can be perceived. The plot just hits close to home. I’m curious to see how the author handles the subject and I bet it’s going to be amazing.
What are some of your predicted 5 stars books?
