books i want to reread

Posted March 12, 2019 by cottoncandybookwitch in books / 7 Comments

I used to not be very into rereading, and in fact avoided and dreaded it most of the time. Up until last year, I only reread a book if it was the last book in a series that had been released and the next book in the series was coming out, because I have dreadful series amnesia. Last year though, I ended up rereading a couple of books for fun and ended up really enjoying it, which has inspired me to do some more rereads this year.

Here are some of the books I hope to reread in 2019:

  • The Princess Saves Herself in This One and The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One | Amanda Lovelace – Amanda Lovelace is one of the two poets who got me more into reading poetry for fun, and I remember LOVING her first collection, THE PRINCESS SAVES HERSELF IN THIS ONE. I didn’t like THE WITCH as much, but I’d still like to reread both of them because reading poetry always inspires me to want to write more poetry, and I really want to try writing more eventually at some point in my life.
  • A Torch Against the Night | Sabaa Tahir – This is one I probably need to reread because I still haven’t gotten to A REAPER AT THE GATES yet (I know, for shame!) I remember mostly what happens in Elias & Laia’s part of the story, but not Helene, so I need to reread it before I get to REAPER.
  • Caraval and Legendary| Stephanie Garber – I don’t NEED to reread these even though FINALE is coming out because I feel like I remember most of LEGENDARY, but I just really want to revisit the beautiful writing in these books.
  • The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert – I just LOVED this book the first time I read it and want to revisit the story. I know a lot of bloggers didn’t like this one, but it was a favorite for me when I read it and I want to go back into the dark and twisted world of the hazel wood.
  • The Belles | Dhonielle Clayton – THE BELLES is a book I have to reread because Dhonielle Clayton is coming to an event at work and I *might* be moderating a panel with her on it?!?!?! So I need to reread THE BELLES, probably a couple times, in preparation.
  • Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur – I know Rupi Kaur gets a lot of crap for not being a “real” or “good” or “instagram” poet, but MILK & HONEY is honestly the book that made me curious about reading poetry for fun and even though not all of it is good, I just want to feel that spark of inspiration to write poetry again.

  • Inkheart | Cornelia Funke – I can’t tell you how many times I listened to this book on audio as a kid, but obviously it’s one of my favorites. I’m curious to see what I think of it as an adult, and I also don’t remember book 2 of it very well and never read the third book, INKDEATH, so I’m very interested in rereading this book.

  1. I loved rereading. A lot of people don’t enjoy rereading or think it’s meaningless. I am not one of those people. I am actually rereading something currently and enjoying so much more this time. Great Post <3

      thanks 🙂 I used to not be into rereading but recently I’ve REALLY enjoyed it 🙂

  2. I can’t find the like button?

    Anyway… when I “reread” I like to do it through audibles. My first time through is always “traditional reading” unless I am traveling (I long like to drive across the country when I can) but otherwise I always read a book first but then if the audible is good like SOC/CK I’ll listen to.it 100s of times.

  3. Still haven´t read The Hazelwood but I hope to that exactly that this month.
    I really want to re-read a book called Kindred Hearts by Rowan Speedwell but then again I don´t know if I dare to because I loved it so much reading it so many years ago. Maybe I will change my mind if I re-read it haha

  4. Oh I would LOVE to re-read Inkheart just as well. I adored this series when I was younger and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to re read it and to see whether or not I would enjoy it just as much.
    AND AHHHH you might be moderating a panel with Dhonielle Clayton???? This is so so great, fingers crossed for you!! <3 <3

      thanks 🙂 at this point it’s just a matter of deciding whether or not I want to do it. Which I think I do, but I also know I’m going to be super stressed on the day it happens and I’ve also never moderated a panel and haven’t seen all that many panels so I’m really nervous about the prospect of saying I’ll do it? But I think I probably should. It would def be really cool.
