Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Earlier this year, I shared my top 5-star predictions of the Spring (which books I thought I would read and rate 5-stars). Even though I only read four of the six featured, I thought it would be fun to reflect on those predictions and see which ones (if any!) I ended up rating 5-stars! You can see my original predictions here.
The first book that I mentioned in my initial post was LOVE & OTHER CURSES by Michael Thomas Ford. While I expected to love this book, I sadly did not. This YA contemporary was just OK for me, but definitely did not blow me out of the water in any way. You can read my full review here. Thanks to HCC Frenzy for the ARC!
The next book I featured was YOU MUST NOT MISS by Katrina Leno. Even though this wasn’t a full five stars for me, I still really enjoyed it! It was a very unique mix of suspense and paranormal activity, and it was so interesting! You can read my review here. Thanks to HBG Canada for the ARC!
I then featured AGAIN, BUT BETTER by Christine Riccio. This is the first book on this list that I ADORED and gave a full 5-star rating to! I LOVED this YA contemporary, and it was even better than I expected! You can read my full review here. Thanks to Raincoast Books for the ARC!
The last book on my Spring 5-star predictions post was THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I gave this one 5-stars as well, and loved it! Evelyn Hugo definitely lived up to all of the hype, and the writing in this one was absolutely phenomenal!
I gave two out of four of my initial 5-star predictions a 5-star rating, which I think is excellent! Did you read any 5-star releases this month? Let me know in the comments!
Good Night Book Owls!

These predications are such a fun idea! Glad that half of these panned out well for you! 🙂
You need to set up your own stall at the psychic fair 😉
Oh I love this! I love your predictions!
What a neat idea to predict which ones you will like the most! 50% is a pretty fantastic rate for loving the books.
Love the idea of writing a prediction post and reflecting on them afterwards! Evelyn Hugo is probably one of my favorite reads this year. I loved it so much and TJR has quickly become an autobuy author. I can’t wait to read Again, but Better!
Thanks! Evelyn was SOOO good, and so was ABB!!!
I love that you came back to your predictions to see if they were actually 5 stars!
I also absolutely loved The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo! (haven’t read the others haha)
They all look good. I have Seven Husbands in my sights when I get around to reading it.
Thanks! It was SO good!!
Ooo they all look like such good books
Most of them were!!!
MY book club just read “The Seven Husbands” book, but I am behind on reading it.
Oooooo it was amazing!!
Great post!! All these books look good. I recently read Letters to Molly by Devney Perry and LOVED it… definitely a 5 star for me.
[…] Last season, I didn’t read many of my 5-star predictions, therefore I didn’t make a reflection post like I did in the Spring. However, I still plan on reading this months’ 5-star predictions, […]
