Hi, friends! We’re back with another round of five star predictions. We only predicted three books in the last round and it still took us forever to do an update about them. Here’s our update!
Miss Meteor by Anna-Marie McLemore & Tehlor Kay Mejia
I did give this one five stars! I loved the magical realism with a bit of a science fiction twist. The story was diverse and compelling. It was a slow and stunning story about self acceptance. I absolutely recommend this one.
Jade City by Fonda Lee
I haven’t read this one, but I am actually planning to buddy read the whole series with my friend Skye in November.
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I loved this book. I didn’t give it five stars, but I did really like the story. I thought the mythology aspect and the historical aspect of the story were excellent and I didn’t feel like I was missing out going into the story with no knowledge about this mythology. I also just loved the characters. We follow an all powerful god and a girl that just wants to escape her small town. I loved them both.
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan
I haven’t actually gotten around to this one yet. I really liked the first book in the series but just haven’t been able to get myself in the mood for this one. I’m hoping to get around to it by the end of this year.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
I really liked this one but I’d have to give it four stars. I had some trouble connecting with the characters for most of the book and wasn’t in love with certain aspects of the plot but will definitely be continuing the series.
Legacy by Nora Roberts
I don’t think I can give this one five stars either. I loved it as I do all of Nora’s books but it wasn’t one of my favorites. I loved the characters and the relationships between them. My problem was with the overall storyline. The build up felt really slow for the majority of the book then the climax and conclusion just sort of dropped in suddenly at the end.
As usual, we are going to share some more predictions! We are going to stick with three since we continually didn’t read all five.
The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Last Legacy by Adrienne Young
Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori M. Lee
Furyborn by Claire Legrand
Winterkeep by Kristen Cashore
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
