Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish.
Way back in the day, before I began blogging, and way before I joined Goodreads I reread quite a lot of books. I loved rereading! You notice so many new things that didn’t register on the first read, and for the most part, you get to know the characters even better. Unfortunately, blogging doesn’t allow for rereading time. Heck, some days it barely allows for quality reading time, let alone rereading time!
Hand on heart, I’d love to reread all the books I rate 4 – 4.5 starts or higher at some stage. According to Goodreads… that would be rereading around 147 books. Yeah, like this will realistically happen :( Choosing 10 books will be cruel, but I’ve managed to do it… sort of! I’m including entire series/trilogies as one place, so I guess the “real” total of books would be a lot higher than 10!
These are in no particular order, and the links below the book covers are to Goodreads.
I LOVE the Night School series! When I read the first book, Night School, I really liked it and put it aside with a 4 star rating… but it was one of those books that kept haunting me. I kept thinking about it! For weeks, and even months, after I read it I would start thinking about it again. Every time I walked by it on my bookshelf, I had to pick it up and flick through the pages and everything about the story would come flooding back, and I realised I loved the book so much more after reading it than while I read it! Each book has gotten better since, and I’m hopelessly addicted to the series! There is only one book left, and it’ll be terrible to say good-bye to Allie, Sylvain, Carter and the others. Sigh!
The Experiment in Terror series is one of my all-time favourite series. It's a 9 book series with lots of novellas attached, so it would take a bit of time to reread them all again. Someday, I’m determined I’ll be able to own the entire series in paperback, and that will be the perfect excuse to reread them!
I used to have the habit of rereading Pride and Prejudice every year… unfortunately, that hasn’t happened this year. It’s the first year I’ve ever missed out too, so that kinda sucks! I’ve never reread Emma, but I loved it almost as much as I loved Pride & Prejudice. I’d love to see if I think the same the second time reading it.
I was always a little sceptical of angel books before I read Angelfall. I don’t know why, they just didn’t really appeal to me! But, oh my goodness, this book single-handedly ruined any and all future angel-themed books for me. NONE of them have lived up to this since. I love the Unearthly series, but Angelfall still wins, hands down, barely a contest.
The Hunger Games are the books that made me realise I LOVE the dystopian genre! I’ve intended to reread all three books so often, and it doesn’t look like I’ll get the chance to in the short term either. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll still love them!
I loved Poison Study! I’m a little scared to reread it though, but I do think I’ll love it the second time. I really want to see both Yelena and Valek back where it all began, and see if I still feel the same about the book. Raw Blue was one of those books that I liked, but didn’t necessarily love. Looking back now, I have no clue why I didn’t rate it higher than I did! I definitely need to reread it at some stage and see if it matches my memories.
Splintered, Unhinged and Throne of Glass are very recent reads, but if I wasn’t blogging, I know that once I reached the last page I would have instantly started reading again. I LOVE these books so much, and both series are firmly added to my all-time favourites list. I’d be so happy if I was able to push everything else aside and curl up with beauties again.
What do you think? Any books on my list you’d like to reread?
