Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blogging meme, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you’re also taking part, be sure to add your post to the Linky so other bloggers can read it.
This week’s theme is all about books we want to read again – whether that’s a re-read, or books we wish we could read again for the first time.
I didn’t manage to think of ten as I’m very much a mood reader, and tend to just randomly re-read books when I feel like it, but here are some of mine:
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I always feel like I have to do a disclaimer when I talk about Sarah J. Maas, because I know she gets a lot of hate in the book community. However, the ACOTAR series is such a comfort-read series for me that I can’t help but go back to them every now and then — particularly the second book in the series, A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m planning on re-reading this series this month in anticipation of the Nesta book releasing in February.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I feel even worse putting Sarah J. Maas in here twice after my disclaimer, but I am trash for her books and I re-read them quite regularly when I’m in a reading rut as I find them all so comforting. I can’t lie!! So I have to admit, I’m absolutely going to read the Throne of Glass series again too.
Circe by Madeline Miller
This is one of those books that I’ll absolutely read again — but also one that I wish I could read again for the first time. Circe is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading, and being able to read some of that beautiful prose for the first time again would be amazing.
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
I’ve actually only recently finished reading this series for the first time, but I know already that I’ll definitely pick it up again in the future. I think it’s the only series where I’ve ever given a 5-star rating to every single book?? Anyway, I’ll definitely be reading these books again… when I’ve recovered from reading them the first time round.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
I’ve already read this series through twice now, but I’ll definitely be reading it again. They were such quick but fun reads, and I love Jude and Cardan so much! I haven’t bought How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories yet, so I’ll likely do a re-read after buying that.
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Howl’s Moving Castle is one of my favourite books ever (and the Ghibli adaption is one of my favourite movies). My boyfriend bought me this beautiful partly illustrated edition from The Folio Society for my birthday this year, so I’m planning on re-reading this one soon so I can really appreciate this beautiful copy!
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I read Uprooted a few years ago, not long after it released and, although I enjoyed it, I feel like I didn’t quite appreciate it as much as I would now — as my reading tastes have changed a fair bit since then. I’ve been meaning to pick this one up again to see if I like it more on a second re-read, so I imagine that will happen fairly soon!
What books do you plan on re-reading? Are there any books you wish you could experience again for the first time?
