Hey all! It’s Sunday, I’m tired and still have yet to start packing for Friday, so, I’ll be doing that tonight after some ill-timed coffee drinking later.
Anyway, I definitely love rereading books and wanted to share some of my favorite ones to reread.
NOTE: You’ll notice a pattern with these, but since I’ve started really interacting on the bookish communities on social media, my reading has diversified, and I plan on making a post of planned rereads for next year with my diverse reads I’ve found.
So, here we go!
Sorry to say I’m quite predictable in this first one, I do love to reread the Harry Potter books but typically I’ve only reread books 1-4, because after the other three came out I was in the last couple of years of high school and a slave to homework and college applications. But I have started to read the first one with my mini.
Another I love to reread, and this one is much easier as I have it on my kindle so whenever I feel like it, I go and reread whatever book I like in the series. I’ve read the whole thing at least twice through, books 1-7, and other works by Montgomery.
The Lucas Film’s Alien Chronicles trilogy, an absolute favorite of mine that I have been talking up for like a year on this blog lol, if you ever find this at a library or somehow in a store [they’re out of print by now I think] then I highly recommend them if you’re a Scifi fan! I’ve read this series 3x, I think, and have read the first book like 3.5x lol.
I tend to reread a few of her books a lot, like every Christmas I reread the Christmas themed ones of hers that I own, and I reread Loves Music, Loves to Dance and a couple of others, but these two are my ultimate rereads. Especially Remember Me as it’s what I like to call my comfort read. Sometimes when I’m just not in the mood to pick up a new book or maybe just feeling a little blue, I pick this up and read a bit of it, and I’ve read it a total of about 4x in whole. Where are the Children? I’ve read about 3x I think. Every few years I pick it up and give it a read.
The Immortals Quartet by Tamora Pierce, another long favorite of mine, I’ve read it around 3-4x and haven’t in a while so I think it’s time for a reread. I think that this is another comfort read of sorts, my first real big fantasy kick just right before Harry Potter…I think, Idk guys, I’m getting old, memory’s fuzzy. Anyway, I love this, like, so much, and will die on that hill of love.
This was my first Agatha Christie book, so maybe that’s why I keep coming back to it, but I make sure to put a few years between each reread, since I know I’ll eventually forget most of the details, I let that time-lapse and pick it up to discover the mystery all over again lol.
This book opened my eyes as a kid and I think that the impact of it will keep it as one of my most treasured reads, I will say it was a bit heavy to read it when I did, for me personally, but again it had an impact and I’ve read it multiple times, especially as society gets just as emotionless as Huxley predicts. Scary, but accurate like most dystopia.
I can’t help it, I love dystopian novels, and this one really captured my attention, so I’ve read this trilogy in its entirety about 3x and plan on. reading it again soon. This one and the ‘Matched’ Trilogy by Condie are my top YA dystopia picks I think!
Lastly, this one, well, after finding out what kind of a person the author really is, I haven’t reread it but it was powerful to me as a kid and I reread it over and over again until the cover fell off my copy actually lol. So, it saddens me that such a work about being an outsider and overcoming that is unfortunately written by a big huge dickhead.
There are more of course, but I can’t’ recall them all but these are always at the top of my list to go read again..well…aside from ‘Ender’s Game.’ So, what are some comfort reads of yours? Anything you’ve reread at all or want to?
