Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given and this weeks topic is Bokks I Want to Re-Read
I love re-reading books. I love how you get to reminisce all your favourite parts, how you get more emotional over certain scenes as you know what will happen next and I love learning all the new things. I also love waiting years between reads so that you only vaguely remember it so the re-read feels fresh and new in a completely different way. So this week I have listed the top ten (*cough* eleven *cough*) books I’d love to re-read – if I could ever find the time! (And, as always, these are in no particular order!)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell; I read this one at the beginning of this year and just fell in love with it. I felt so in tune with this book and I just want to remember why. I want to be Cather again for a while and to just feel like someone understands.
P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern; I was 15 years old when I read this book and I have never read it again. That’s ten years. The story is still very vivid in my memory (so much so that I really struggled with the film adaptation!) but I would love to re-read it and re-live the magic that is this book.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead; I only read this at the beginning of the year but it’s one I want to re-read before I continue on with the series because I want to experience reading this series in quick succession because it is so good. (Well, I think it is but so far I’ve only read this one!
Divergent by Veronica Roth; I read this book nearly three years ago now and have never read it again. I wanted to before Allegiant came out but never got around to it. But I really want to jump back into the beginning of this world and remember how it all began.
Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid; This book was so good that I found it difficult to do anything else and ended up reading it in a whole day. I really want to re-read this one and remind myself how amazing and powerful it was.
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman; I remember so much about this book but I’m also vague on a lot of details. I do know I loved this book and with the second one out very soon, I really want to re-read this one and just get pulled into this magical story once more.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas; If you’ve heard me rave about Sarah J. Maas before then you’ll know that this is one book that I really, truly love. But all the small details from this book are disappearing and I’d really love to re-read this book, the novellas and the second book before I read Heir of Fire – but I’m sure it won’t happen, unfortunately.
Defiance by C. J. Redwine; In all honest truthness, I have forgotten a lot about this book. I know that it is a book that I am incredibly passionate about. It is one that slayed me emotionally and kept my attention and made me fall in love with the characters but once again, the smaller details have gone and I want to recapture them and remind myself why I loved this book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; This is another book that I’ve only ever read once (are you sensing a pattern here?) and one that I really want to read again. Guiltily I have watched the film adaptation many times and this is just very sad and bad. Hopefully I’ll re-read this soon!
Lucas by Kevin Brooks; This is, and always be, my favourite ever book. It’s actually not one I talk about on the blog very often – shame on me! – but it was the first book I read that really resonated with me. It didn’t have a happy ending at a time when I was looking for books without happy endings. But I haven’t read it in years and I really need to rectify this.
What about you? What books do you really want to re-read?
