Top Ten Books I Want To Reread Soon!
I LOVE rereading! I am a perpetual rereader–always have been, always will be. I love immersing myself in stories that I love again and again. So this is such a great topic for me! Without further ado….
The “YAY! A New Book in This Series Came Out So I Need To Re-read All the Books Before It” Rereads!
The Mara Dyer Series by Michelle Hodkin: I have been waiting until close to release date to reread Unbecoming and Evolution, and I FINALLY started Sunday! I am loving revisiting this story, with these characters, and this supernatural mystery, and I cannot WAIT until I get my hands on Book Three tomorrow! SQUEEEEE!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I read the first one the month it came out, and then I anxiously waited for books 2 and 3 to come out so I could just read them straight through because I loved them so much! But then it came out in the spring, and I haven’t picked it up yet! But I WILL SOON! 🙂
To All The Boys I’ve Love Before by Jenny Han: I know this one is a few months from the second book being published, but I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to rereading this one again. I am having to restrain myself! 😉
The “I Loved This Book So Much the First Time that I Need to Reread It Again!” Rereads!
Every Day by David Levithan: THIS BOOK. IS. AMAZING. And I need to experience it again!
Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley: There is something so poignant about this book. I connected with it so much the first time I read it, and I feel myself being drawn to it again.
Love in the Ruins by Walker Percy: This is a book that I first read in a seminar class in undergraduate, and it is the one that stuck with me the most. I feel that I want to revisit this to see why it stuck with me so much.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: Such a beautiful fantasy story. And I want to revisit this one again, next time on audio. Because JIM DALE!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: This is the book I started at 11pm before bed and finished at 5am when my husband was getting ready for work. I fell in love so quickly that the next time I want to take my time and really savor the story.
The “I Have Read This So Many Times But It’s Been At Least A Year Since My Last Reread” Rereads!
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golding: I actually read this book after I saw the film for the first time in high school. And then, 6 months later, I read it again. This story is just so beautiful and poignant, and it transports me into another world. And I love that. And I have been looking at it on my shelf for the past few months just itching to reread it. Soon, my beautiful book, very soon!
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls: I first read this book when I ran out of books on my spring break trip in 6th grade. I borrowed a book from my mother’s friend, and I took home a great treasure that week. That story was the first story that I felt an emotional connection to, and that is the story that taught me that books (and fictional stories) can mean more than just the words on a page to me. And I just LOVE this book so much that I reread it frequently.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: I read this for the first time the summer before my senior year in high school. And I fell in love with this beautiful story of redemption and truth and searching and…..sigh. It has been a couple of years (maybe as many as ! GASP!) since I have picked this book up. I will probably revisit this one again soon.
Bonus: The Books I am Hesitant to Reread.
Looking for Alaska by John Green: Why? Because this book is one that has changed my life and affected me in ways that few books have. And I don’t want to lose that feeling by rereading it. But then again, I reread everything I love. And every time, I learn else about myself through that experience.
The Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R. R. Martin: Why? Because they are SO LONG! I think this may be the first series that I really really enjoy that I won’t actually pick up again. I think one time is enough…..for at least the next 25 years. 😉
Needless to say, I LOVE rereading books. So much. What are the books that you just LOVE to reread? Leave me a comment and tell me!
