One of my favorite ways to kick off a new year of books & blogging is with five star predictions! There are just some books that you know (and really ultimately hope) will be 5 star reads. For me, most of my 5 star predictions include books from my favorite authors that I know have a 95% chance of being a perfect/5 star read for me or a book with a synopsis that sounds really amazing.
Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon | Release Date: January 11
Weather Girl is definitely a 5 star prediction case due to the fact that Rachel Lynn Solomon is one of my favorite authors (also why she is on this list twice). I loved her 2021 adult contemporary romance, The Ex Talk, and Weather Girl has another really unique synopsis, following a meteorologist and sports reporter who team up to get their divorced bosses together.
House of Sky and Breath (Crescent City #2) by Sarah J. Maas | Release Date: February 15
I honestly haven’t even really read the synopsis of House of Sky and Breath but I am obsessed with anything Sarah J. Maas writes and I loved House of Earth and Blood so much when I first read it in 2020 – I’m actually going to do a reread before reading this sequel!
I’m in a situation this October where I’ve added more books to my TBR than the actual amount of books I’ve read, oops. Definitely missing my 20+ book a month summer reading, but my books this fall have been really quality reads AND I’m looking forward to the following books on my TBR. Today’s recent TBR addition round feature some 2022 releases I am SO, SO looking forward to and some recent releases.
Just Haven’t Met You Yet by Sophie Cousens – Did anyone read that title to the tune of the same song by Michael Bublé? Sophie Cousens’ debut, This Time Next Year, was one of the most popular books last year & one that I really enjoyed. Her sophomore novel coming out this November follows a woman on vacation who is convinced that the man she’s mixed up her suitcase with is the one.
The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson –The Magic of Found Objects was Bad on Paper Podcast’s Book Club pick for September 2021. I had the book on hold from the library, but it didn’t come in until this week. This book sounds super unique, following two best childhood friends who decide to give up on romance & marry each other. I plan on diving into Maddie Dawson’s backlist if I like this one!
One Night on the Island by Josie Silver – I really enjoyed Josie Silver’s One Day in December and LOVED, LOVED The Two Lives of Lydia Bird, so I cannot wait to read her February 2022, One Night on the Island, following two people who are very much in need of a vacation on a remote Irish island & are accidentally booked to share the same cabin.
