Were my 5* predictions correct?

Today I’m writing a post that I’ve not done before! Two months ago I took part in a Six for Sunday prompt (hosted by Steph @ alittlebutalot) where I looked at books from my TBR that I predicted would be 5 stars, the original post is here. I wanted to look back and see if my 5 star predictions were correct!

  1. Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson: rated as 5 stars. I love this series of books, I like all of the twists and how the story plays out. I really like the use of different media such as interview transcripts and podcasts, and Pip’s anger towards the end of the book was incredible.
  2. Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins-Reid: rated as 5 stars. I ADORED this book, I loved the interview style and the focus on each band member. I definitely need to read more books written by Taylor Jenkins-Reid!
  3. The Lonely City by Olivia Laing: rated as 5 stars. I was not expecting this to focus on art so much (as I didn’t read the blurb, I just loved the title), but it didn’t matter. I loved the writing style and the exploration of loneliness, it was just fantastic.
  4. A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood: rated as 4 stars. I didn’t enjoy this as much as Under a Dancing Star but I still loved the story and the descriptions were gorgeous.
  5. Take Me In by Sabine Durrant: rated as 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading this, I liked all of the twists and the slow build, but it wasn’t a five star read for me.
  6. Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo: rated as 5 stars. This book was incredible and I wish I’d read it sooner! I liked how we learn so much about each character’s life and how each of their stories weave together into one narrative.

So I predicted four of these correctly, which I’m very happy with! This is something that I might do again in the future, so watch this space!
