So way back in February of 2018 I shared with you five books of my tbr that I thought would be 5 star reads for me. The 5 star predictions were particulary popular at the time and I jumped on board.
Lately I’ve been looking at my goals. I have a goal of 15 books from my tbr that I wanted to read in 2019. Those always go a bit meh to be honest. And I’ve decided to scrap those as a possible goal for 2020. Instead I’d like to list five 5 star predicted reads for 2020 in my goals.
However for that to work I want to look back and see if I read those first 5 star predictions so I can list some new ones.
The Name of the Wind
I still haven’t read this book. Its not that I don’t want to read this but I’ve decided I want to wait until we are a 100% of the release date of the 3rd book. Its been a while since the second one came out, and there is no indication it will be released soon. I think I will end up binging this series so I’d rather wait for the release of the third one.
The City of Brass
I finally read this just last week and I am very glad I did. I might not have rated this book 5 stars but I did really enjoy reading this book and I can’t honestly wait to see where this will be taken to in the next book.
The Way of Kings
I am on the fence with this one because I’ve heard some not so nice things about Brandon Sanderson as a person lately and it has kind of put me off reading him for now. I do however own the books so I will give it a shot at some point, just not now.
The Empty Grave
I ended up reading this one not too long after posting the tbr and I loved it as I have loved pretty much all of the Lockwood & Co. installments. You can read my review here.
The Three-Body Problem
I read this during Sci-Fi Month 2019 and was glad I finally did. I’d been pushing forward and forward because I was scared of the science in this, and yes it was a bit over my head, but as a whole I did enjoy the book. You can read my review here.
Looking at this list it is kind of sad. I mean I only read 3 out of 5 and only one of those turned out to be an actual 5 star read. Though it is Jonathan Stroud so it should not really be a surprise. Hopefully I will have better luck with a new 5 star list.
