Five Star Predictions from my TBR

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

We’d hope every book we read is going to be a five star, otherwise we would avoid it like the plague. However, there are some we pick up and really feel it’s a five star book in our hands.

There are some books I have really high hopes for in 2020. I think it will be interesting to look back in December and see if any of them actually did get top marks.

Books I Should Have Read by Now

There’s a phrase people use about me is “her eyes are bigger than her stomach.” It’s mainly used around food – I have no sense of portion control, as in at all. But, another way it applies to me is definitely buying books.

I get so excited seeing books on the shelves, ones I’ve wanted to read for so, so long, and then I just completely ignore their existence for the rest of forever.
