Mercedes posted a video trying to predict which five books would get the five star treatment in her TBR. She then wrapped up with a video to see if her predictions were correct. I picked 5 books that I thought I might give 5 stars and since I have now read them I thought I’d let you know if I was right!

Notes On A Nervous Planet- Matt Haig
Whilst I did enjoy reading this book, I preferred Reasons To Stay Alive. I gave this book 4 stars.
The Surface Breaks- Louise O’Neill
This book was brutal! I did very much enjoy reading it but it wasn’t quite the 5 star that I had anticipated. I gave it 3.5 stars.
Open Your Eyes- Paula Daly
I adore Paula Daly and this book was so close to a 5 star. It didn’t quite get there though. 4 stars.
The Breakdown- B.A. Paris
This one was SO close to a 5 star. 4.5 stars. There was just something about it that prevented me from giving it 5!
The Dangerous Art Of Blending In- Angelo Surmelis
Another one that was close! This was an intense, darker read. I thought it was a very accomplished debut! 4 stars.
So, I may not have predicted any 5 star reads but aside from the Louise O’Neill book, I was very close! These books didn’t let me down. Look out for my new 5 star predictions coming soon! 🙂
