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.
