⭐️5 star predictions Update⭐️

Around this time last year I made a post about 10 books that I thought would be 5 stars so this is my update! I had high hopes last year when I made this list and unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to read them all.. I already only read 3 out of the 10 (yikes lol). I will very much be prioritising the other 7 books this year as I do think they will still be 5 stars!

Act your age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert – 5/5 stars LOVED IT

Witchshadow by Susan Dennard – 3/5 stars Disappointing!

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – 2/5 stars Underwhelming

Recent Additions to my Kindle

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is the most recent additions to your collection. I haven’t been buying a lot of physical books in the last year or so because my shelves are pretty much at capacity at the moment and I don’t have the space to expand upon my collection right now (also books are expensive lol). But I have been accumulating a lot of eBooks and reading more and more on my kindle lately so I have amassed quite a bit of a TBR on there.

These are the last 10 eBooks I’ve added to my kindle:

Jade City by Fonda Lee

We Ride Upon Sticks by Quan Berry

The Storm of Echoes by Christelle Dabos

In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead

The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

The Camelot Betrayal by Kiersten White

This Coven Won’t Break by Isabel Sterling

5 Books I Want to Read Update

Back in January I posted about 5  books I really wanted to read in 2021 and now that we are at the end of the year I thought I would post a final  update and see how I did! At this stage I’ve completed 3 out of the 5 books and honestly I’m okay with that. This is has been my worst reading year in terms of quantity in a few years and I had a massive reading slump in the middle of it all so I’m quite proud with what I was able to complete. Obviously, I am going to be prioritising the other two books in 2022 and get this list completed! 

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

This was a wonderful introduction to this trilogy and I can see now why so many people love this book. The writing was descriptive and the world building was immaculate. All of the characters were distinctive and diverse and the way the storylines merged was masterful. I am kicking myself for putting off reading this book for so long and I am happy to have finally completed it. I have a feeling I am going to be continuing on very soon!

My Rating:  ⭐️4/5 stars

The 7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

Multiple timelines and POVs can get a tad confusing for me and it’s hard to keep track of all the characters and who is a host and who isn’t. I have to say as he switches from each host and the days start ticking down the level of urgency felt throughout the plot kept rising. I had no idea at any point in time what was actually going to happen, I had my suspicions but at every twist I was definitely surprised!

My Rating:  ⭐️3/5 stars

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

I really enjoyed the format of the book with the countdown to the trivia night. Knowing that one of these characters is now dead and trying to figure out who did it and who died really built up the anticipation. The mystery behind who was the school bully was intriguing and it was entertaining to see these mothers going around gossiping about their lives. This was definitely better than what I was expecting and it was nice to read a book with the setting here in Australia, I don’t get many of those.

My Rating:  ⭐️4/5 stars

The other two books I still need to read are:
