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!

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

  1. You just can’t beat a re-read! This is my favourite thing to do, particularly when I am in a book slump or feeling some comfort reading. I still have not read strange the dreamer, but I it is very high on my list of next books to read! Also a harry potter re-read? sign me up!

  2. I’d love to reread PJO too! I remember reading and enjoying PJO and HOO as a child, but now I remember absolutely nothing about them—same goes for HP. I’m actually rereading the Harry Potter series right now, and even though the books aren’t as good as I remember, I’m really enjoying my experience revisiting the HP series in my teen years! also, I absolutely loved A Series of Unfortunate Events as a child! Ahhh, I enjoyed reading about how the Baudelaire children outsmarted Count Olaf so much ❤ but I doubt I'm ever going to reread ASOUE simply because the series is long and kinda depressing—plus, I think I remember enough about them, unlike with PJO and HP. come to think of it, I only ever reread books if I don’t remember anything about them, because whenever I reread a book I have a decent memory of, i get bored because I already know what’s going to happen 😅

    1. Now that it’s been a while since this post came out, I’m thinking it will be more beneficial and emotional to reread PJO right before the Disney+ show comes out! I already have a lot of other books to read, anyway. 😅 I think I might have read A Series of Unfortunate Events in just a few weeks, because I read them non-stop and I even read two of them in one day at least once! I loved them, haha! I would be interested in a reread, but I probably wouldn’t read the whole series together again. That’s a good point! I used to reread books whenever there was going to be a sequel releasing soon and I didn’t remember the book because I had read it one year before. 😂

  3. I need to know– Did you read Lemony Snicket’s Unauthorized Autobiography? It’s the perfect compliment to A Series of Unfortunate Events. (Which I want to re-read as well, and have slowly started to re-purchase from thrift shops. A timeless classic!)

  4. Ah I love this post so, so much. I used to re-read books quite a lot, but…. now there are just way too many new books I want to get to, I tend to forget about the books I used to love. I’d love to re-read all of Alice Oseman’s books, they’re all so wonderful! ❤

  5. I love rereading books. I’m stuck in a major slump right now and if it continues I’m going to try picking up an old favourite – probably a HP book – to break it. I’m pretty sure I keep falling into it because I made reading all about catching up on my TBR and inadvertantly turned it into a chore. So I’m trying to break that mindset and hopefully get passed it once and for all.
    Was POA your favourite HP book then? Ooh I’ve only read ASOUE once but I did love the books. I saw the eighth get lower ratings and didn’t get why tbh as I really enjoyed that one. And I can’t believe that I haven’t read Strange The Dreamer or Percy Jackson yet 🙈 both are series that I hope to pick up at some point this year

    1. I hope you get out of your slump soon, Charlotte! I’m also in a reading slump – I have so many books to read, but I just don’t feel like picking them up right now. 😅 If it feels like a chore and not a fun thing to do, I think that’s what causes a slump for me, too. Yeah, I loved ASOUE! I wanted to reread the series for the Netflix adaptation, but I ran out of time and never got around to it. Oh, I hope you love Strange the Dreamer and Percy Jackson if you ever read them soon! 😊

      1. Thank you. I hope you manage to get out of yours soon too. And it’s definitely frustrating when that happens. I’m trying to remind myself of the excitement I originally had for all of my books and the wonderful reasons that I wanted to read them in the first place. And not stress about how long they take to read. I’m hoping if I do that I’ll finally shake this slump off once and for all.
        Aww that’s a shame. I hope you get to re-read it one day if you still want to. Thank you (:
