When I was younger, I reread books all the time! It was easy, and honestly, I didn’t know just how many other options there were out there.
I loved the books I already owned, and I just kept reading them over and over again, no shame at all. I would just pick one of my faves up and simply reread it, with no worries about the impending doom of my TBR.
Nowadays, my TBR is suffering because I just have so many things I want to read next. Rereads seem like they would be a waste of time, but you know what? They’re not. This is my blog and you can’t tell me what to do. 😌
Here is a list of books I will be rereading eventually, because at this point, I’m just doing whatever makes me happy.
I read this book last year and I loved it so much more than I thought I would! It was basically one of the few books I’ve rated 4.5/5 Stars, and I really enjoyed just about everything about Strange the Dreamer.
Recently, one of my professors asked us to read a paragraph from our favorite books, and I panicked! How dare she ask me to choose a favorite book?? But I ended up reading a page from Strange the Dreamer, which made me feel so good… and then I wanted to read the whole book again. 😌 And I will soon!
The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan
(+ basically anything with Percy Jackson in it)
The Lightning Thief is one of the two books I’ve read 5 times (which is the highest number of rereads I’ve ever done), but I would gladly make it 6 times. Especially since I was gifted the illustrated version for my birthday, and I have yet to read that version!
I read this book for the first time in high school, and although I didn’t fully grasp everything that was happening in the plot, I loved it. Then, I reread it back in August 2019, and I actually appreciated it even more.
Although it is a bit dark and sad, I’m willing to read this book two more times. Apparently, Disney+ is going to adapt it into a movie at one point, so I’ll read it again before watching that, and then I’ve also heard some great things about the audiobook, and I’ll try that too.
💫 Stop by later this week to read my next post and find out more about my Challenger Deep adaptation feelings! 😉 In addition to a bunch of other discussion topics!
The Harry Potter Series, by J.K. Rowling
Prisoner of Azkaban is the other book I’ve read 5 times, but I would definitely be willing to change that number to 6 when I read the illustrated version soon.
Actually… I recently realized I’ve only read all the HP books in order once? (I usually just read whichever ones I feel like *shrug*) I really need to fix that!
I’m thinking about having a week-long Harry Potter readathon, to see if I can finish the entire series in a week or 10 days… would you be interested in joining me? Sometime in the summer? You don’t even have to say yes ‘cause I’ll just do it by myself anyways!
This book is also dark and sad, but listening to the audiobook was an excellent experience.
It was one of my first audiobooks, and it was great. The book itself left me captivated and wanting more, but I think what also made this book so good was the audio experience.
A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket
As a whole, I’ve only read this series once. But I think I’ve probably read Book One, book Three, and Book Eight like… 4 times. (There are 13 books total!)
Granted, all of those rereads happened between the ages of 10 and 12, and it’s been a while.
I almost reread the series in preparation for the Netflix adaptation, but I ran out of time and motivation. I still think of the series fondly, and I would be willing to read them all again.
Fun fact: the first book in this series, The Knife of Never Letting Go, was the very first audiobook I ever listened to! And I loved it so much!
I had such a great time reading this series. I laughed, I cried, I wallowed in sorrow in the middle of the night as I finished every book… it was honestly just a great experience.
I have such a strong connection of emotions with this series, and I would gladly put myself through every single one of those feelings again. 😌
Sorcery of Thorns, by Margaret Rogerson
I feel bad about the first time I read it, because I didn’t give it the attention it deserved!
I read it during one of my 24-Hour Readathons (whilst also being distracted by a very large stray cat) and I just couldn’t give it all of my focus. I really liked it, but I felt too… disconnected.
I’m sure I would like it more if I read it again!
I really liked this the first time I read it, and I would like to see what I think about it now! I read it during my first semester of college, and it made me Very Emotional.
I also recently collected all of Alice Oseman’s paperback books in preparation for reading their books in order! So now I have to read it on paperback and audio. 😉
Books by Brian Selznick
I couldn’t pick just one, because I know I’ll read them all again eventually.
His books, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Wonderstruck, and The Marvels are just so unique. They are each told in a combination of prose and traditional black-and-white art, and they’re great MG books. I’ve read The Invention of Hugo Cabret at least three times over the past 8 years, but I just might have to read it again for nostalgia purposes!
Do you ever reread your faves? What are some books you want to reread next? Have you noticed yet that I basically talk about the same 15 books in every post? 😅
This is why I don’t do recommendations, haha…
Chat with me about it!
Happy reading, everyone! 💕 💫 Have a lovely day! Stay safe and healthy!
