Books I Want to Re-Read

Top 5 Tuesday is a book meme hosted by the magnificent Shanah at Bionic Book Worm.

Oh my goodness, this is such a fantastic topic and one that I will have difficulty just narrowing down to my top five. I mean, who doesn’t want to read ALL their favorite books over and over and over??Β  But, I will try my very best πŸ™‚

25883848Β The Hating GameΒ by Sally Thorne

Okay… full disclosure? I’ve already re-read this one… several times. πŸ™‚ I can’t help it! It is just so adorable and every time I am feeling down, I know this book will cheer me up. It makes me smile practically the whole way through.

5826Bel CantoΒ  by Ann Patchett

I readΒ Bel Canto such a looong time ago that I can hardly remember much about it. But I do remember that it resonated with me in such a way that even now I would consider this one of my favorite books. I’m a little scared that I won’t like it as much if I read it now, but what if I like it more?

1232The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Another one of my absolute favorites and one that I have no fear re-reading. There is no doubt in my mind that I’ll love this one as much as I loved it the first time I read it. Zafon actually has another book in the series (the final) coming out at the end of the year. I’d love to re-read all of them so they’re fresh in my mind for the finale.

27280362The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

I’m counting this as one book (no, I’m not cheating!) because I intend to read them as ONE – back to back without stopping πŸ™‚ I read these a while ago and it has been my goal this year to re-read the series in anticipation ofΒ King of Scars (out January 2019).Β I can’t wait ❀

6581303Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn

Another one of my favorites! I love Kate Quinn and adore pretty much everything I’ve read of hers and Mistress of Rome wasΒ my first. I have my sister to thank since she recommended it to me all those years ago ❀ There are actually more in this series that I never got to. I’d love to re-read this one and continue with the series. They all get great reviews on Goodreads so it doesn’t sound like I’d be let down.

Okay, there you go! Are there any here that you’ve read and loved? or hated?? What books would you re-read if your TBR suddenly disappeared? πŸ˜€

  1. I personally get more attached to series rather than lone books (such as the inheritance cycle and lord of the rings). Currently, i’m reading A court of thorns and roses and i can barely put it down! I can tell this series is gonna end up on my list of favs too πŸ’–

      1. I already finished a court of thorns and roses (I managed to read so much more than I usually get to πŸ’–) and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! I want to make a review for the whole series once I finish it, I hope that’s gonna be fairly soon 😊


  2. The first three books on your reread this are on my TBR and now I’m thinking I’ll have to bump them up on this list! I’d love to reread some of my oldest favorites, like The Poisonwood Bible and Middlesex to see how they still resonate with me!

    1. That is part of the fear of re-reading. I really don’t want to realize one of my all time favorites really isn’t that good anymore. Although now that you mention it, I’d love to read Poisonwood Bible again too πŸ˜€

      If you read any of these, let me know if you like them!! πŸ˜€

  3. Have you read The Sun and Her Flowers? I had mixed feelings about it but I think it’s because I couldn’t relate too much to it. I really want to reread it in the future and see if my perspective on it changes! I checked the summary of The Shadow of the Wind and it sounds like an interesting historical read. Also haha I like how you asked “what book would you read if your TBR disappeared” because ahh I totally wish I could have the time to finish reading my TBR list!

    1. Right?! I feel like re-reading is a pleasure for people who don’t have a TBR pile that is a million miles long πŸ˜€ hehe.

      I have not read The Sun and Her Flowers. I actually picked up Milk and Honey and I was really on the fence about it. I felt like I didn’t really like it but I really wanted to… does that make sense. But it was a while ago so maybe I should pick up Sun and Flowers from the library and give it a go. Good suggestion. Thanks πŸ™‚

      1. No problem! I’ve read The Sun and Her Flowers recently and I put that book on my reread post. When I read it I couldn’t connect to the book and felt that there was not enough female empowerment although there were several parts of the book that I enjoyed. I put it on my reread post because I feel that perhaps in the future my perspectives will change! I always wish to give my 3 star rated books another try in the future to see if I like it more or less!
