Hello! This is my fifth installment of 5 star predictions! I’m almost done with reading the books from the last batch, but I thought I would do a post with my predictions for the new year!
This is also another way to get myself to read books I’ve been putting off reading, so I’m going to try to get to these early on in 2021. This is how I’m holing myself accountable. Anyway, let’s get right into it!
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth
Boarding school horror story. What else is more me than this? I’ve also seen some pretty good reviews of this, so I’m really looking forward to reading it! I have an audiobook courtesy of Libro.fm, so I think this is going to be a great book to dive into soon!
Anxious People by Fredrik Bachman
I have had multiple books by Bachman on my TBR over the years, but I’ve never picked one up yet. I have heard phenomenal things about the author, and I’m expecting the book to be very poignant and beautifully written. All I know is that it is about a robber who holds a group of people hostage at an apartment open house! It sounds super intriguing, and I’m curious to know how the story will unfold!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
My sister got me this book for my birthday last month, and it has taken a lot of willpower not to have started it right away. I held myself back because I was still working through quite a few other books, and I don’t think I’ll have time to get through it this month either. BUT, that means it is a perfect read to start the new year off with, and I think that is exactly what I’m going to do! In case you don’t know, this is a story about a girl who makes a bargain with the devil to live forever in exchange for being forgotten by everyone she meets. Until she meets someone who remembers her…
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
I love a good YA mystery. And this is a Sherlock Holmes spinoff about the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes. I’ve had this book on my TBR for a really long time, and it’s imperative that I get to it in 2021. I want to even finish the whole series, though I’m not sure when that will happen!
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker
This is a book about a mysterious illness that causes people to fall asleep and not wake up. I don’t know much else besides that, but I have heard some very good things about it. I think it will be a strange and atmospheric novel, if the cover is any judge. My lovely friend Olivia gifted it to me, and I can not wait to pick it up!
Have you read any of these? What did you think? I would love to hear any opinions on them you have!
