Books I’ll probably be re-reading soon :)

Howdy-doodle people. Welcome to my blog.

This year I’ve re-read more books then I was planning to. I love re-reading books and going back to the stories I’m so fond of, but I was really trying to find new things to love this year.

So far 15 books out of the 50 I’ve read have been re-reads and they’ve all brought me joy, and so I’m saying screw you to my original plans.

Here are 5 more I’m planning on reading for a second time sooner rather then later:

I just said above that re-reading books brings me joy, and yet these three books are all kind of depressing in their own ways πŸ˜‚ Oh well.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo I feel like I have good reasons to want to re-read the books that are on this list … except for this one. I got it into my head at the start of the year that I wanted to read this again before the sequel. The sequel doesn’t have a cover yet and I’ve heard nothing surrounding it’s release so that excuse has gone out the window and I’m simply re-reading it because I want to.

Solitaire by Alice Oseman – I know you’re probably tired of me talking about Alice Oseman books but here we are. Solitaire was the first novel I read of Oseman’s (I don’t’ count Hearstopper) and I really wasn’t a fan. There’s something about it that just didn’t click with me. I did enjoy I Was Born For This a lot more though and so my plan is to read Radio Silence and Loveless and then, depending on what I think of those, read this again.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I’m now realising Bardugo might end up being my most read author of the year. I’m not mad about that. In preparation for the Shadow & Bone show, I re-read and then continued on with the original Grisha trilogy. After watching and loving the show I had to read Six of Crows and my plan was to re-read Crooked Kingdom straight away. I really can’t remember why I didn’t, but either way my mum is now reading it so I’m going to have to wait till she finishes.

Also, side note: my mum is loving the Six of Crows duology and I feel so proud!

Oracle of Senders by Mere Joyce – The third book of this series came out recently and I wanted to read it straight away but all I remember from the second book is that my ship kissed. In my eyes this is the most important thing, but I think I should probably go back and re-read to fresh up on the other plot points. I’m not mad about it though. This is a really underrated series of books about ghosts and a camp for people who see ghosts, that I love!!

More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn – Me and Erin Hahn’s books go together like fish & chips, or hotdogs & ketchup, or ice-cream & sprinkles. It feels like her books are made for me and I’m hoping to adore her third book, Never Saw You Coming, just as much. No matter my thoughts or feelings on her new release though, I know I’m going to be dying for more after I read it so I’m planning in advance and I’m saying now that I’ll probably end up reading More Than Maybe afterwards.

Those are the 5 books (technically 6 since there’s 2 books in the Oracle of Senders series I need to read but I digress …) I will probably be reading again soon.

Fireworks just started going off like crazy outside my window. I completely forgot tonight (as I’m writing this) is San Juan so I’m gonna go comfort my dog who just wants to sleep but is being disturbed by loud noises at past midnight.

Thanks for reading. I’d love to know your thoughts on any of these books, and also what your stance is on re-reading books: how often do you go back to books you’ve read before?

  1. I love re-reading books. It totally changes my perspective of the book a few times. But I don’t really make a list of it. I just pick up a book from the shelf on the basis of what I’m in mood of. Re-reads help me relax during exams too. I cannot start reading a new book when the exams are around the corner. I start thinking about the plot instead whenever my focus shifts. πŸ˜‚ I loved the post!!
