FromMyBookshelf: TBR Check In + My 5 Star Predictions


Good morning, Reader and happy Tuesday. It’s been a while since I shared a TBR post with you guys so this is an updated one. I have to say, I have been pretty disciplined with reading books from my bookshelf and at the moment I have 12 books left which I’ll be reading over the next few weeks.

From classics to Fiction to Poetry, here is what is on my list:

  • Jude The Obscure by Thomas Hardy
  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
  • Hard Times by Charles Dickens
  • The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • Silas Marner by George Eliot


  • One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • The Diary of A Young Girl by Anne Frank


  • She Would Be King by Wayetu Moore
  • Half Of A Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Zuri by Dora Okeyo
  • the Deep Blue Between by Ayesha Harruna Attah
  • Poems From East Africa Edited by David Cook and David Rubadiri


5 Stars Predictions

A year or so ago I did a 5 star rating prediction, which you can read here, which was so much fun I decided to do it again. These are books that I have a feeling I’ll absolutely love, from reviews read and recommendations. Also, it so happens that I have been wanting to read them for the longest time. Talk about excitement!

  • Half Of A Yellow Sun
  • She Would Be King
  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude

There you have it. Point to note is that this is my physical tbr only as that is what I am focusing on at the moment. Until next time, stay safe and stay reading. 🙂


What is on your tbr? Do you see any favorites? What should I pick up first?

  1. You have such great titles on your TBR. I hope you’ll get to enjoy them. I think Half of a Yellow Sun is a sure 5stars. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

    1. so far I have been loving the ones I have read and I am so happy about that. Half of A Yellow Sun seems to be a favorite with many, can’t wait to get into it.

  2. This looks like an interesting list, I actually hadn’t heard of a lot of these before today. I tend to get most of my books from the library but I am looking forward to reading a couple ARCs I got recently
