The Bookish Prediction Tag

It’s been so long since we did a book tag!! So here we are back with The Bookish Prediction Tag which Stephen @ Stephen Writes tagged us to do a while back! This tag was originally created by Book Princess Reviews.

We’re excited to do this tag in particular, since it’s a great way to look forward at (what will hopefully be) our future reads! Between the many amazing anticipated releases of 2021, and the plethora of books we have on our TBRs there are so many books to choose from.

What is your next read?

Malka:

I’ve decided not to mention any of the 12 books I’m currently reading and instead mention other books that I want to start soon, but since I’m very much a mood reader, I make no promises! These three books are ones that I added to my TBR in the past few weeks that I really cannot wait to read!

Chana:

Hopefully A Desolation Called Peace! I need to read it for reviewing reasons, and I also really want to read it because I loved the first one!

What do you think will be your next 5-star read?

Malka:

I literally have no idea. I think I’m in a bit of a slump, so right now nothing seems worthy of 5 stars. However, based on how many other people have loved this book, I’d say The House in the Cerulean Sea has a pretty good chance of getting a 5 star rating from me when I read it.

Chana:

THERE ARE SO MANY. But for books that I have on-hand to read that I’m excited for and have heard good things about…I’d say maybe The Devil and the Dark Water? I loved Stuart Turton’s first book, and the synopsis for this one sounds fascinating!

What do you think will be your next 1-star read?

Malka:

Hmmmm, this is tough because I am super stingy with my 1 star reads, and don’t really pick up books that I think I’d hate. There’s a good chance I can make it through the entire 2021 without a 1 star read. If that isn’t the case, I’ll be quite surprised!

Chana:

Well I don’t usually aim to read books that I think will be 1 stars. So I’m not going to try and predict that. 

Who will be your next love interest (or character that seems really cool to you)?

Malka:

Quan from The Heart Principle! I’ve already met him in previous books, so I know how loveable he is. Reading about his story will definitely only help to solidify my love for him!

Chana:

Zhu from She Who Became the Sun!! Everything about the book sounds amazing, I can’t wait to read it!! (Also, I just realized that She Who Became the Sun has a double meaning, it’s so clever and I’m so dumb for not noticing it before 😭)

What will be the next book you’ll be buying?

Malka:

A Time to Dance, for sure! This book has been on my radar for a few weeks after seeing it on my Goodreads feed, and I honestly don’t know why I haven’t bought it yet! If I don’t buy it this month, I’ll definitely buy it in March because it just seems like everything I’d love in one book!

Chana:

The Dragon of Jin-Sayeng! I need to pre-order it stat, especially now that I’ve seen the cover. It’s so pretty!!

What will be the next book that will leave you with a complete book hangover (and desperately wanting a reread or the next book in the series)?

Malka:

Every book is leaving me with a book hangover and I don’t even have to finish them! Such is the power of a reading slump. But to actually answer this question I’m going to have to say One Last Stop, since Red, White, & Royal Blue left me with quite the slump, which means I already know Casey McQuinston has that power!

Chana:

Alas, I cannot see the future. But I’m hoping it’ll be The Space Between Worlds! I’ve heard so many good things about that book, I hope that my prediction turns out to be correct.

    1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying it! I honestly can’t believe that I haven’t picked it up yet because I was anticipating its release so badly! But I still think I’ll get to it in the next few weeks, whenever my schoolwork calms down enough for me to pick up a book!

      Thank you! 💕

    1. I just started The Space Between Worlds yesterday, and I’m only like 30 pages in, but it’s already so good! Honestly, July can’t come fast enough I need to read She Who Became the Sun immediately 😭

  1. That sounds like a super fun tag! However I’m hopelessly bad at predicting ratings (or rating in general, halp) and I don’t know if I could put any books on this list. 🙂
    I do have House in the Cerulian Sea on my tbr howevern and hope that I will like it. I heard it’s the cutest romance of all cute romances while also full of magic.

    1. It really was a fun tag to answer! But I definitely agree that predicting ratings is not my strong suit! A lot of the books that I used as my answers are just hopes and guesses, rather than accurate predictions!

      I really hope that you love The House in the Cerulean Sea and that I do as well! It’s one of those books where it’s so hyped that I’m actually starting to get a little scared to read it because of how high my expectations are! But I’m always here for a great romance, so hopefully I’ll pick it up soon!

  2. So many great books! I just added a few to my ever-growing TBR 👀 I can’t wait to finally pick up the house in the cerulean sea, it sounds so amazing and exactly like my type of book

  3. The House in the Cerulean Sea is definitely worth the hype! One of the easiest 5-star ratings I have ever given. I read it a few days into January and I see it being my favourite read of 2021. It was so beautiful. Hope you enjoy it! – Amber

    1. That makes me so happy to hear! I’m planning to read it sometime soon, and I’m hoping that I’ll love it as much as everyone else has! But if you say it’s already taken the spot of your favorite book of the year, then it must be amazing! I can’t wait to finally read it and share my thoughts!

  4. Oh I loved your answers and I’m so glad you did the tag! I’m actually reading The House In The Cerulean Sea right now and it’s pretty good – it’s fun and very whimsical! The Devil and The Dark Water is a good read as well, very clever and suspenseful. I hope they both turn out to be 5-star reads!

    I also share your thoughts on 1-star reads, why would you pick up a book if you think you’re going to hate it?!? Sadly, I’ve just had a 1 star read lol. The Girl Who Became The Sun looks brilliant, can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that one too, Chana.

    Hope you have both had a good start to 2021! 💕

      Thank you! I hope you’ve been having a fantastic 2021 too!
