Reviewing my 5-star predictions


I have two posts up of Predicting 5 Star Reads (here and here) so I thought I’d give an update to what I’ve read/ haven’t read from the list and my ratings!

Both lists are made of 5 books but I managed to put Obisidio on both lists (oops).

From the first post:
Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor – Unread
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin – Unread
The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan – 4 Stars
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas – 3 Stars
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff  – 3.5 Stars

I don’t own Night of Cake and Puppets yet so I don’t think I’ll be reading that anytime soon. I do own The Fifth Season so I will definitely be reading that before the end of the year!
TBM – Not as good as I hoped but a solid 4 star read.
ACOFAS – One of the most disappointing books ever. It was crap.
Obsidio – Another disappointment, it wasn’t bad, I just expected better.

Second post:
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – 4 Stars
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor – Unread
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – Unread
Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – On hold

– Was good but slow.
MoN – Will be reading this very soon!
Nevernight – Will also be reading soon!
POTOT – I tried to read it but I wasn’t feeling it. May try again in the future.

I’ve realised I’m not that great at predicting five-star reads. I think I go into books with way too high expectations. We shall see if the remaining books will be five-stars, only time can tell!


What book did you think would be a five-star read but wasn’t?
