This post might seem like something I should have written at the beginning of January rather than the end, but it’s only recently that I’ve started really wanting to reread some of the books I own.
This is going to be split into two sections: The first being books I’ll definitely reread this year, the second being books that I might reread.
So let’s get to it!
Books I’ll definitely reread this year
A Darker Shade of Magic
by V.E Schwab
I read this book about a year ago I think, and now that the second book is out next month, I figured it was time to reread it. I’ll actually be rereading this one once I finished the book I’m currently reading!
Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
I don’t read contemporaries often, but when I read this one a couple of years ago, it became one of my favourite books (to my surprise). I never got round to continuing the series though, and I finally feel like doing so. But I think it’s pretty clear that I’ll need to reread this one first, since I read it so long ago.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
by JK Rowling
When it comes to books, I really REALLY love knowing little details that make a story so much more complicated. And to me, Deathly Hallows is the perfect example of one of those books. I remember there being a huge backstory to Dumbledore’s life, problems with Rita Skeeter, and basically just so much more detail surrounding the characters that’s just missed in the films. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the films. But I really do miss all the small details that make the story as amazing as it is. I did consider rereading the entire series, but I feel like I attempt that every year and never actually get round to it since it would take so much time.
Books I might reread this year…possibly
Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince
by JK Rowling
I know I just said I’ll probably only read the last book, but I might change my mind and reread the last three. We’ll see how it goes. They’re all pretty big books. And yes, I know the covers don’t match. But this is actually what my Harry Potter collection looks like – non matching. The first 5 are the original covers like Order of the Phoenix, the last 2 are the white editions. But oh well.
The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak
Oh look, another one of my favourite books. Again, I read this about two years ago I think. But not long ago one of my friends was reading it, and I instantly wanted to revisit the story once again. So maybe this year I will.
Queen of Shadows
by Sarah J Maas
This is a very big maybe. Last year I reread Heir of Fire before this book came out, and I’m sort of considering rereading this one before the fifth book comes out. But it’s a pretty big book and I still remember most of what happens…plus I’ve already written a review for it, so if I spent time rereading this, I wouldn’t have a book review for that week. There’s a lot to think about with this one.
by Ransom Riggs
This one I might have to reread out of pure inconvenience. I only buy paperback books, so when the third book in this trilogy was released only in hardback, I was a bit downhearted because I knew I’d have to wait. But Hollow City came out in paperback in February last year, so I thought I wouldn’t have to wait long. WRONG. I looked it up a few weeks ago and the paperback isn’t released until SEPTEMBER (according to Amazon). UGH. So yes, anyway, I’ll end up having to reread Hollow City because I read it ages ago, and I still have months to go yet.
So there we have it!
Those are the books I plan on rereading this year, whether for definite or just a possibility.
Which of these books have you read from this list?
Are you planning on rereading any books this year?
Are you rereading any of the same books as me?
