Blogmas Day Twelve: Five Star Predictions – Round Two

Hello, bookworms! Today’s post is going to be a continuation of one of our blogtober posts (find it here.) For blogtober, we talked about some books that we thought would be new favorites and that we would probably rate five stars. So, we’re going to wrap up those five predictions, whether we managed to read them and what our actual ratings were.

Amanda’s Predictions Wrap Up

The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
I did indeed rate this book five stars. I think I also rated the sequel five stars. This book was amazing and I highly recommend it.

The Love That Split the World  by Emily Henry
This was my last Emily Henry book that I needed to read and I completely loved it.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
I haven’t managed to read this one yet, but I’m planning to get to it in early 2021.

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
McLemore’s prose is nothing short of incredible. This book was a balm on my soul, full of bisexual, Latinx women and flower magic.

Paola Santiago and the River of Tears by Tehlor Kay Mejia
I stand by the fact that every single Rick Riordan Presents book is perfection. Tehlor Kay Mejia blew me away with this middle-grade debut. I loved every minute of the audiobook.

Antonia’s Predictions Wrap Up

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
I absolutely LOVED this book. It has such a unique setting and fun, flawed characters. So many crazy things happened at the end that I can’t wait to see where the series goes next. It definitely met my five star prediction.

Seven Devils by Elizabeth May and Laura Lam
I wasn’t able to get around to reading this one but I still have high hopes for it.

Rules for Being a Girl by Candice Bushnell & Katie Cotugno
I also wasn’t able to read this one but I’m hoping to very soon.

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
I’ve already bought this one so I’m definitely reading it soon but work has been crazy so I haven’t been able to read as much recently as I wanted to.

The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to finish this one. I’m about halfway through and so far I’m mostly loving it. I’m really enjoying the characters and setting. Right now, I just feel like I’m getting more questions than answers but in the good way that keeps you hooked into the story. It’s hard to say where the story will take me next but so far I think this one’s fitting with my original prediction.

Now, that we’ve wrapped up the five predictions we each made and attempted to read, we’re going to make five more predictions. We thought this was a super fun post idea and want to continue it. We’re thinking it’ll be a seasonal thing or we’ll just check in once we’ve read all of our predictions. I guess you’ll find out when we post our next round, hah!

  2. LTSTW and Wild Beauty were both 5-stars for me. Glad you got to them and enjoyed them. I hope you get to read Rules for Being a Girl. I really liked that book. Things You Save in a Fire started my love affair with Center. Fingers crossed it’s a hit for you.
