Top Ten Tuesday: 5-Star Reads?

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This weeks theme is:  Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads


5-star reads, I had two last month, which was a lovely reading surprise, and now it’s time to look ahead at my massive TBR pile and select books I think may also become 5-star reads for me…

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – I love the sound of this, and I’ve seen many great reviews. It also has a gorgeous cover, not that you should let that influence you, but it does! You could say I’m looking forward to starting this.

Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker – A Dracula prequel that I’ve been wanting to read for a while now. I hope after all this time it turns out to be worth the wait.

The Poison Song by Jen Williams – The final Winnowing Flame book. I’ll be sad to see it end but I also can’t wait to get back to this world and these characters.

The Other People by C. J. Tudor – A new-to-me author and if I enjoy The Other People I’ll probably check out some of Tudor’s earlier books as well.

The Guest List by Lucy Foley – The Hunting Party was good, and the synopsis for this gives me And Then There Were None vibes, so it could be great. I like a good murder mystery! Speaking of which…

Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie – I’d like to read this before the new film version comes out, and see if I can work it out before Poirot no doubt solves the case. It will be a first if I do, but I never mind being wrong.

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz – A murder mystery with a bookish theme too. Sounds good!

Circe by Madeline Miller – Another beautiful looking book that’s been waiting on my TBR pile for far too long.

The Dirty South by John Connolly – I’ve only read the two latest Charlie Parker books but I want to read more of the backlist titles and I’ll be looking out for this latest as well.

Blood of Empire by Brian McClellan – Final book in the Gods of Blood and Powder series. I’ve enjoyed the previous in this series, and the Powder Mage trilogy, so I really hope this latest offers a great conclusion.


So, have you read any of the books that made my list this week?  If so, what did you think of them? See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.
