For me, rereading is a thing of the past. Which is incredibly unfortunate, but I just don’t have the time to reread books lately. Especially when there are new books that I need to get my hands on.
The idea of rereading is actually so enticing because I’m always super sad to leave a world behind, or a character that I grew deeply attached to. Sometimes, it feels like I mourn characters as if they died when I finish a book or series.
Anyway, here’s my list of the top ten books I would reread, if only I had the time…
and who knows? Maybe I will get around to rereading them sometime in the future (only, at that point the list will probably have tripled).
- The 5th Wave – I really enjoyed this book and I was totally immersed in the story, but I feel like I need to read it once more before the movie hits the theaters. Just as a refresher.
- Please Ignore Vera Dietz – This book was amazing, but I feel like it’s one of those books that you can reread over and over again and never get tired of. It has a nostalgic, sort of sentimental feeling to it (for me, anyway).
- Fangirl – I read this book around last Christmas, and it feels like a lifetime ago. I’ve really changed throughout this year and I think I need to read this one again, just to see if anything changes in my perspective.
- Divergent – I have been putting off reading Insurgent for forever! It’s been so long that I feel like I need to reread Divergent just to get back into the world!
- The Hunger Games – Mockingjay is coming out this month! Woot woot! Rereading this series would be perfect for getting hyped up about the movie’s release.
- Cinder – I can not wait for Winter to come out, so it would nice to reread this Lunar Chronicles to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything about the complex world these characters live in!
- I Am Number Four – I read this book years ago after seeing the movie, and I didn’t even realize it was a series. I would love to reread the first book and to continue on with the series.
- Eleanor & Park – CUTENESS! I would reread this one just because it’s absolutely adorable and heartbreakingly perfect.
- Crash Into Me – I read this book SO long ago that I don’t even remember what this book is about really. And I have no clue how it ends. So I think a reread is practically required.
- The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1) – I LOVED this series as a child. Sixth grade was very weird for me because I had just moved and had to switch schools, so this series was very comforting to me during that time. I flew through this whole series within a month or two (which was very quickly for me at the time), and I would love to visit this world again.
