Tags are really fun to do and a wonderful way to include more than only one book in a single post. I was tagged by Siren @ Sweaters and Raindrops to do this one (thank you, Siren! I really wanted to do it 😉 )
(I’ve liked to improvise myself a seer just for five minutes, but I’m not sure how many of these predictions are going to be accurate 😂)

And here is my first miss, I guess 😂 I never stick to a proper schedule or order when it comes to new reads.
It could either be Girls of Paper and Fire or My Lady Jane, depending if I’m craving fantasy and action or historical fiction and humor. (Some idiotic part of me would like it to be Sorcery of Thorns, but I’ve got a Women’s History Month Readathon TBR list for March and I have to fill the bingo board with neat crosses.)
Next 5 Star Read
From what I’ve heard, Girls of Paper and Fire deserves 5 shining stars. But since I’ve already mentioned it in this post, Imma choose another one.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January (which I’ll read in 29327947 years) seems to be a safe prediction. The synopsis is catchy, the reviews and general verdict place it above 4 stars, and there is magic and worldbuilding involved, so yes, 5 stars.
I’m also incredibly attracted to books about big houses with loads of doors to open and secrets to discover. It’s a love derived from Narnia’s wardrobe (melancholy from my childhood), The Night Circus‘ labyrinth (recent wonder) and Ten Little Indians’ big house (mysteries from my early teen years).
Next 1 Star Read
Oh… Um… I usually don’t rate books 1 star? And I most often don’t pick them if I don’t think I’ll love them (or like them, at least). For the sake of this tag, I’ll choose a book I think I’ll rate lowly, even if there is no saying if it’ll be 1 or 2 stars.
Hot Dog Girl… I decided to read it before I really looked for reviews or ratings. I think it’s one of those contemporary reads with a good plot idea, a pretty cover, and a solid ad campaign, but not much in the characters development department. (And, probably, not an otherworldly writing style or plot either.)
Contemporary isn’t a style I usually go for unless it is really well-written and surprising. I don’t care for the modern-day routine we all have and all know. I read books to escape that reality. So if the characters and story don’t resonate with me, then… Nope.
Next Love Interest (or Character that Seems Really Cool to You)
I don’t know. It’s hard for me to fall for a fictional character at the moment. #disgrace But I think that I’ll end up being attracted to Nate from One of Us is Lying because I love his counterpart in The Breakfast Club. (Brooding bad guys… It’s not good to have them in real life, so let me have them in fiction.)
I’ll discover the truth only when I’ll get to read the book… Probably when I’ll be a grandmother already.
Next Book You’ll Be Buying
I- *eyes empty walled* I might have already bought all the books I could buy before going to college 😂 I now get them from the library or friends.
BUT I want to buy Becoming Belle, because Nuala O’Connor is an amazing human being and I just love the cover, okay?
Next Book That Will Leave You with a Book Hangover (and Desperately Wanting a Reread or Next in Series)
I’m always saying that about every book, but I’ve wanted to read The Lunar Chronicles since ever, and I’m so glad I’ve fit Cinder in my March TBR list!! I’m sure I’ll want to binge the series because I’ve got this super soft spot for retellings. Also, royalty set in space? I’m not sure how to describe that but it gives me major Treasure Planet vibes, and it’s steampunk, and I’m definitely in love.
Aaaaand I’m tagging… (Please don’t do it if you don’t want to 😉 )
