The last 5 Star Book Predictions blog I did was quite awhile ago back in August of 2019. It’s amusing looking back at that list now, because I’ve only successfully read one book from it and completely lost interest in a few others (oops).
Well today, let me redeem myself. Here are 5 books that I have full intentions to read in 2020 and that I am confident I will hand 5 stars. Shall we?
Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan (GOP&F #2)
We already know how I felt about Girls of Paper and Fire. I reviewed it. I did a whole reading vlog on my channel for it back in November. I featured it in my favorite reads of 2019 post. I loved this book with my whole heart. I cannot wait to see where the story of Lei and Wren goes in Girls of Storm and Shadow. (Although, I’m also scared. Natasha Ngan’s tweets about the series make me nervous).
The Crow Rider by Kalyn Josephson (The Storm Crow #2)
I raved about The Storm Crow in my review and also featured it in my favorite reads of 2019 blog post. Needless to say, I am dying for July to get here so I can read this beautiful sequel. 5 stars for Res’s existence. What a good crow. Nobody hurt him.
Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim (Spin the Dawn #2)
I swear I did not intend for this post to practically be anticipated sequels of 2020, but here we are.
Shocker (I know) I absolutely loved Spin the Dawn. I featured in my 2019 favorites, and to date, it’s probably still one of the reviews I am most proud of from my retired review style. I already preordered this book and I am anxiously awaiting July once again.
The Grace Year by Kim Liggett
In non-sequel news, I added The Grace Year to my TBR back in October of 2019 and I’m still waiting for the right time to get to it. However, when I do, I wholeheartedly expect to love this book. Reviewers have praised it as dark, symbolic, and comparable to wit of classic works. I cannot wait to read this book and dissect it and talk about it here on the blog.
She Would Be King by Wayétu Moore
Last but certainly not least, I have recently acquired She Would Be King by Wayétu Moore. This book has been on my TBR since September of 2019, and my best friend bought it for me as a Christmas present! (Ely, if you’re reading this, I love you!) This book is so intriguing to me because it’s an African-inspired fantasy about 3 people who have powers that they encounter during near-death experiences. There is so much else to say that I’m not doing it justice, but nevertheless (and needless to say,) full RTC.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought of them! Summer 2020 is looking like a great year for reading, if I do say so myself.
