At the start of 2017 I saw Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings make a video on books of her TBR pile she thought would be 5 star reads for her. I have seen quite a few people make similar lists since then, and I decided to jump on the bandwagon. So here are five books on my owned-TBR which I think I will Love and am especially excited for:
I had to start this list off with a Brandon Sanderson book… I am so so pumped for Oathbringer. Apart from his Reckoners series I have given all his books so far a 5* rating, so my hopes are high. The only reason I haven’t picked this book up yet is because I want to reread the first two books in the series first, and a friend is borrowing them at the moment. But I believe he finished them the other day, so I will be starting on this series soon!
The second book on my list is also by an author I really enjoy: Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I gave the first book a 4.5* rating, just because there were a few plotholes. But I have been told by Mr Sullivan himself that my favourite character (not just of this book, of any book) is going to play a big role in this second book! So I need to read it, soon…
I love good, emotional middle-grade books and I think Pax by Sara Pennypacker may be just that. This book came in second place in the Goodreads Choice awards, after Rick Riordan’s Trials of Apollo… I feel like Riordan will always win the Goodreads Choice awards though (just like anything Harry Potter related will also win), so actually Pax has won. And may I also point out that Pax did get more votes that Riordan’s Hammer of Thor? Pax is about a fox, it is set during the War (I am not sure which one actually) and it has a stunning cover. I think I will love it.
Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw tells about Dr Greta Helsing, who helps the undead. I really enjoy retellings/adaptations or books inspired on the classics, and this one seems like a Lot of fun. It has the premise for a great urban fantasy, which I am always in the mood for.
Jackaby by William Ritter has been described as Sherlock Holmes meets Doctor Who… which means it is a perfect read for me. I have seen so many rave about it, I can’t believe I still haven’t picked it up.
So this is my list of books I think I will absolutely love… now let’s see if I’m right!
Hoping you are having a lovely day,
