Books I Want to Revisit // a list of books I won’t mind enjoying again and again 😌

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.

Strange The Dreamer, by Laini Taylor
Goodreads | My Review 

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!

Challenger Deep, by Neal Shusterman
Goodreads | My Review

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!

Harry Potter Complete Series Boxed Set Collection JK ...

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!

Sadie, by Courtney Summers
Goodreads | My Review 

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.

Why America Needs A Series of Unfortunate Events Now More than ...

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.

The Chaos Walking Series, by Patrick Ness
Goodreads | My Review

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
Goodreads | My Review

I feel bad about the first time I read it, because I didn’t give it the attention it deserved!

💫 related: My Progress From The Winter 24-Hour Readathon! // Day 1, Part 1

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!

Radio Silence, by Alice Oseman
Goodreads | My Review

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. 😉

A Brian Selznick Prize Pack: Includes The Marvels : The ...

Books by Brian Selznick
Goodreads | My Review

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! 


You can also be my friend on Goodreads!

Happy reading, everyone! 💕 💫 Have a lovely day! Stay safe and healthy!

  1. As a huge rereading lover, I loved seeing what books you would like to revisit 🥰 I started a Harry Potter reread last year, but only got to book 5 – I really do need to reread books 6 and 7 as well at some point 😂 I reread Rick Riordan books all the time as they make for such amazing comfort reads and I also recently reread I Was Born for This and Radio Silence – a very good decision 💕

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Caro! 💕 I think I’m going to do a full Harry Potter reread this July – I usually just reread whichever one I feel like, but I think reading the whole series again will feel so much better! Also, I haven’t read I Was Born For This yet, but I should really do that soon!

  2. I was the exact same way when I was younger – I just read the same books over and over and over again 😊 Those were the days! I definitely understand getting buried by your TBR as you reread old favorites, because that happens to me all the time. I just love returning to a book that I already know I’ll love!
    I’ve honestly lost track of how many times I’ve read Percy Jackson and Harry Potter, and I’m sure I’ll read them many more times during my life 😄 And yesss Radio Silence! I’ve read it twice now and I’ll never get tired of it. Good luck with all of these rereads! 😊

    1. Yeah, I sometimes miss the days when I had so much time to just reread everything! 😊 I love reading books I’ve read before because it’s comforting and I know I’ll love it, but I’ll never find new favorite book that way, I suppose! 😂 I know I’m going to reread PJO this summer, and I’ve already started! And hopefully I can get to Radio Silence again soon! Thank you! 😀

  3. I think I have reread the first Percy Jackson over a dozen times over the last fifteen years. It’s one of the books I just love so much and am so happy about that I discovered it back then. ❤
    I kinda wanna reread the last Harry Potter book as well, because it's the HP book I have reread the least.
    I have never read anything by Brian Selznick but it sure sounds interesting. I will definitely take a look at those. 🙂

    1. Wow, you sound like such a true fan! I think my friends used to make fun of me for rereading so much, so I kind of stopped after the first few times. 😅 But that’s awesome that you read PJO so much! At least you know that you already love it. 😊

  4. I used to reread all the time when I was a kid but I didn’t have a steady stream of new books all the time so I tended to read the same books over and over again without them getting boring. I do occasionally reread now but usually when it’s a book in a series that has a new book coming out and I’ve forgotten what’s happened.

  5. i love this post, xandra!! i’m a huge rereader so i always have a ton of books i want to reread 😭😭 the lightning thief is definitely on my list, as well as the rest of the series! i reread it last year (without rereading the rest of the series), so i think i’ll read it for the sixth time this year and then read the rest of the series too haha. and aahh i only ever read the first 4 books of a series of unfortunate events and i wish i’d continued! i definitely want to finish the rest of the books soon ❤

    1. Thank you so much, May!! ❤ I totally relate to never having time to reread anything, no matter how much I want to. 😭 I always tend to reread The Lightning Thief without reading the others, but this year I’m going to reread the whole series back to back! Ooh, I’d be curious to see what you think of a series of unfortunate events if you read it soon!

  6. I completely agree with the feeling of rereads being a waste of – but this quarantine has forced me to reread some of my old books and I’ve loved it? So I’m trying not to think of it as a waste of time & to just enjoy it 🙂

  7. Omg I can’t believe you’re one of those magical humans that can re-read random books from a series – Nish does that as well & I just can’t comprehend??? ANYTIME I re-read a series, I have to read it in order, and I have to read all the books 😂 I need someone to fix me!
