Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the 2020 books we predict that’ll be 5-star reads. And at first I was really excited about this, because I’m excited about a lot of books but then… it turned out it’s no so easy to predict which books will be 5-star reads and which won’t. I may love a book, but the difference between a 4-star or 4,5-star rating and a 5-star rating is hugely emotional for me and often not only has to do with the book itself, but the emotions I felt while reading it, how invested in the characters I am, how big my book hangover is… Basically, IT’S HARD.

But I tried! So while this list is a little shorter than usual, I think most of these will become 5-star reads for sure. Let’s check in again at the end of the year ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hunting Fiends for the Ill-Equipped by Annette Marie

Hunting Fiends for the Ill-Equipped & all other remaining books in the Guild Codex series by Annette Marie

Let’s see, I’ve been raving about this series for a while now. I’ve LOVED every single book so far – so chances are highly likely that I’ll adore all upcoming releases as well!

Enemies-to-lovers. An intricate fantasy world. And a gorgeous cover. Hitting all my spots. Sounds like 5 stars to me.


Asexual representation written by Alice Oseman? This book already has a spot in my heart and I havenโ€™t even read it yet.

Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzalez

SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA meets CLUELESS in this boy-meets-boy spin on Grease. I mean YASSSS!

Look, Iโ€™m a pen pal-trope addict. There I said it. Iโ€™m also an enemies-to-lovers addict. AND I love Twitter. So enemies hashing it out through Twitter and falling for eachother in real life? YES PLEASE. Basically, this book was written for me and you canโ€™t tell me otherwise.

Heartstopper volume 3 by Alice Oseman

Again, it’s Alice Oseman. It’s also the cutest graphic novel ever. It’s a safe bet to say this’ll be another 5 stars.

Fence Vol 4 by CS Pacat and Johanna The Mad

MORE FENCE! FINALLY! I feel like I’ve been waiting for the next installment in this fencing graphic novel forever.

Tell Me:
what’s a book you predict will be a 5-star read for you in 2020?

  1. “Tweet Cute” is, well, quite cute! Hope you enjoy this one if/when you have the chance to read it, Lindsey. I like what you say about how you determine high ratings. The characters and how much we invest IS a big part of an enjoyable reading experience. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Rissi!

  2. Ooh more Annette Marie looks fun. And Alice Oseman too- I need to read more of her books, loved Radio Silence.

    1. Radio Silence was amazing!

  3. I had a hard time picking mine this week, too. 5-star reads for me are ‘almost’ perfect books, so it’s hard to predict them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great list!

    1. It is indeed so hard to predict 5-star reads, for me it’s partly emotional so that’s almost impossible to predict ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Great list! I’m hoping to love Loveless, too – I want more aro-ace rep in fiction – and I really need to try Annette Marie’s work this year. I hope you enjoy all of these!

    1. We definitely need more aro-ace rep! Hope you’ll enjoy Annette Marie’s books when you decide to give them a try ๐Ÿ™‚
