Rereading is something I think about fairly frequently. Certain books I loved will catch my eye on my bookshelf and I’ll think about all the great moments I had reading that particular book and wish I could recapture that magic so I tell myself I’ll reread it. The reality is however that I rarely do so. I have so many books to read, my NetGalley ratio is starting to become a bit of a terrifying joke and as I blog more and become confident to inquire I’m receiving more advanced reader copies and taking part in blog tours (as you’ll see over the coming weeks) leaving a lot less time for rereads than ever before so I’ve promised myself over the next year I will reread these books! Thank you, as always to Steph from A Little But A lot for her excellent prompts.
Twilight – This is purely for the nostalgia factor I think. I’ve enjoyed reading a Discovery of Witches recently which to me feels very much like a more adult version of Twilight and I am really interested how slightly more grown-up Jemma would react to books that angsty, vampire-obsessed, teenage Jemma would react. See also Vampire Diaries.
The Illuminae Files – I’m not picking just one of these books because I want to reread all of them all of the time. Whenever I’m having a hard time reading something or if they just catch my eye sitting on my bookshelf I want to reread them. I loved them so much and they were such great, fun reads I just can’t get enough of them.
Poison Study – It’s been such a long time since I’ve read the book that kickstarted my journey into YA Fantasy, I used to reread it every time a new book in the series was due out but now it’s finished I’m at a loss and really missing these books.
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe – I’m thinking of trying the audiobook version of this one! I had planned to reread it for the year anniversary but things have just been so crazy! This was another book that I loved so much and is so deserving of multiple rereads, it will be interesting to see how it feels when I know the twists and turns now.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – I specified just the first one as although I do love the others the first one always has a special place in my heart and will definitely be a book I try to reread over Christmas as I always think of Hogwarts at Christmas and it’s honestly one of my favourite things.
City of Bones – I’ve never actually reread this before! I did start a while ago but too much other stuff came up and I couldn’t justify a reread. The Shadowhunter books have come so far since the first one and there are so many great lines and moments I remember loving in the first book that it’s something I feel I need to revisit.
I’m having to almost physically restrain myself from rereading The Illuminae Files immediately but with NaNoWriMo coming up I think it’s going to be a tough one! Let me know what books you would love to reread and if we have any that match up!
