Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. I have made a post similar to this week’s topic back in November and I am embarrassed to admit that I have only read one of the books so far! It was The Lonely Hearts Hotel and it was the best book I read last year so definitely a five star book! I still think that all of the books I talk about back then will be five star reads but I will talk about some different predictions in this post!
Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel
May 1st can not come soon enough! The Themis Files is one of my favourite series ever and I have been impatiently awaiting the release of the third book. The way that Waking Gods ended really sets this book up to be epic and completely different. I am so excited to see where the story goes, and I have been seeing a lot of great early reviews for it. I am extremely confident that this book will be five stars, just like the other two books in the series!
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
I have been meaning to read Dark Matter for over a year now because I know that it is a book that I am going to love. A lot of reviewers who I trust and have similar taste in books to me have loved it! I just read the synopsis again and it sounds so amazing. I just have a feeling that Dark Matter will not only be a five star book, but it will end up being an all time favourite.
Circe by Madeline Miller
I have not read A Song of Achilles by the same author yet, but I also predict that it will be a five star read. I am fascinated by Greek mythology, so of course this book appeals to me. It seems that everyone is raving about Circe lately, and I have a feeling that it is for good reason! I am hoping to get my hands on a copy soon!
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman
Starfish is another book that reviewers I trust have all really loved! The cover alone is five stars but the story itself sounds really beautiful. Truthfully I do not know a lot about this book but my gut is telling me that it is a book that I am going to love and rate five stars.
Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading by Lucy Mangan
This is everything that I want in a book! I mean it is a memoir about being a bookworm and childhood stories- what more could you ask for!? 2018 has been the year of memoirs for me and I have a strong feeling that this will be one that I will relate to! I am so ready to take this nostalgic trip down memory lane!
I would love to know if you have read any of these books and if they were five stars?

Circe, and Starfish are two books I really want to read 😢
Me too! I am excited about them!
Dark Matter and Circe were both really really good! Although neither made it to the full 5 stars for me, both were pretty close. And I am so excited for Only Human! I’m counting on it being a 5 star read for me too!
That is good to hear! Ah Only Humans! One week!
I’ve had Dark Matter on my TBR for ages too, I’ve heard such good things and I really want to get around to it soon!
I hope we both love it!
I really need to get on those Themis Files! It sounds awesome and the covers are great!
You haven’t read them yet?! You need to get on that now! I know you will love them!
It’s on ‘the list’ which is a slight higher grade version of the TBR!
I saw Starfish in my local bookshop today and I was so tempted to pick it up because it sounded so good. The cover is even more beautiful in person as well!
I haven’t seen the cover in person yet!
It’s so pretty!
Dark Matter and Circe were both so good. FYI, Dark Matter is a very fast paced and quick read because of the way it’s written. Wholly recommend both and hope you like them!
That is great to hear! Thanks!
I had Dark Matter on my list too! Hopefully we both get to it soon and enjoy it!!
I hope so too! I have a great feeling about it!
Circe seems like a 5 Star read to me too! I hope it’s good as the hype.
Me too! I have a good feeling about it!
Read Dark Matter!!! I hope it’s a 5 star read for you. I definitely think it deserves it! Amazing read!! I really want to read “Starfish” it definitely seems like it would be in the 5 star realm based on everything I’ve read about it!
Yay! I am so excited about Dark Matter! I do not think I have seen a bad review for Starfish! Sounds amazing!
I haven’t read Song of Achilles either, but have become really interested in it and Circe lately. I’ve heard wonderful things about Bookworm and can’t wait to pick it up as well. Hope these will all be five star reads for you!
Thank you! I think Bookworm will be such an enjoyable reading experience.
I also would love to read Circe and Starfish. I believe I’d love them too. And same with the Lonely Hearts Hotel. I bought the book last year after reading a sample of it and immediately fell in love with the writing. Hopefully I’ll get to it this year.
I am really excited about Circe and Starfish! Ah I hope you love The Lonely Hearts Hotel! I am tempted to reread it soon!
I’m SO excited for Only Human! I’m currently rereading via audiobook Sleeping Giants and Waking Gods, and I’m only about 30% into Sleeping Giants but I am SO in love with this series, I know I’m going to fly through the rest of it before May 1st, ITS SO GOOD!!!!
Yay!! I love it so much and I love when other people love it too!! I am counting down the days!
Likewise, I’m always happy to find others who love it just as much!! I feel like it’s so underrated and I’m trying to get everyone to read it!
Awesome list- I have high hopes for Circe and Starfish too 😀
Thanks! I have a feeling we are both going to love them!
I really hope Starfish is five stars too! I ordered it online a week ago so I’ll definitely be reading it soon! I hope it’s a five-star read for you 🙂
Thank you! I can’t wait to see what you think of it! I have high hopes that we will both love it!
The only one I’ve read on this list is Dark Matter, and it is indeed 5 stars! (to me LOL) 🙂
That is great to hear!
I also really want to read Starfish! I think I’ll like it too 🙂 hopefully we can both read it and have five star experiences
I hope so! I have only heard great things!
i just picked up Dark Matter on a total whim – wasn’t even on my radar, let alone my tbr – and i enjoyed it sooo much!! hope it (and the other four) are great reads for ya!
Thank you! I am so excited for Dark Matter!
Circe and Dark Matter are definitely on my to read list. I’ve heard such amazing things. Also, the Starfish cover is so pretty. 😍
I hope we both end up rating them 5 stars!
I loved Dark Matter so much! It’s so good and I flew through it. I can’t wait to dive into Circe.
I am hoping to read Dark Matter in May. Can’t wait! I hope we both love Circe!
I’m hoping Circe and Starfish will be 5 star reads for me too, especially the former! <3
Me too! So excited about them both!
