Hello! So this is going to be a long post since not only do I have a lot of backlist books on my shelves but also so many others on my TBR that I hope to get to someday soon. Narrowing down this list to just 15 books was very very difficult and I just can not believe I did it. These are also sort of my predicted 5 star reads since I have heard a lot about them and have been continuously recommended them by some of my friends and just a lot of people across social media.
ON MY SHELVES
Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust || I’m so excited for this book, especially since I know it’s sapphic and I really hope to get to it this year! I am actually planning to buddy read this with one of my friends from book twitter soon and I absolutely can not wait!
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi ||This is again a book I have heard a lot about and I am very excited to get to it! I just hope that it lives up to the hype.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir || I know I should’ve read this by now, especially since everyone is always going on about how great it is! So I really hope to get to it soon! But, I don’t think that I have the mental capacity to handle the inevitable devastation reading this book will cause.
Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko || Everyone has been talking about this book and is raving about it and I really want to be a part fo that! I was finally able to get a copy of it and can not wait to fly through it 🙂
A Song of Wraiths and Ruins by Roseanne A Brown|| This book sounds great and is supposed to have a tournament and a great magic system so I can’t help but be psyched to read it and I hope I love it!
Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar|| I am always excited to read books by Indian authors and this one is no exception! I have seen lovely reviews of this book by so many reviewers I trust as well and I hope I love it too!
Unravel The Dusk by Elizabeth Lim|| I really enjoyed Spin The Dawn and am very excited to get to Unravel The Dusk! I’ve been meaning to do so since October and I haven’t been able to but I hope to soon!
The Damned by Renée Ahdieh ||The Beautiful was a magnificent book that I fell absolutely in love with! The writing was beautiful and the setting was alluring. The characters were so interesting too and I can’t wait to read more about them!
The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco || I recently finished Bone Witch and it was a great read! I don’t have this book yet but I hope to acquire it soon and read it.
We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal|| So many people have been talking about this book, and Rameela’s recommended it probably a thousand times so I know I need to read this book and I need to do it as soon as possible!
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa || Sophia has been trying to get everyone to read Julie Kagawa’s books since forever and I got to say, I wanna know why she loves her books so much! This year I’m going to finally give the Iron fey series a try and hope I love them!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab || There’s no specific person who recommended this book, but everyone in general. This book is so popular and was probably everywhere on IG when it was released. I feel like I am one of the only ones to not have read it yet and I hope to read it asap!
