TTT #5 – Books I Could Reread Forever

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018.

10 books I could reread forever.PNG

I have to admit that my first reaction to this theme was : a lot of sulking. Why? Because for some reason I don’t see myself rereading many of my favorite novels (because they HURT, okay??), and I thought that it would be limitative. Fear not, I was wrong : first I noticed that there would be a Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read theme on April 10th, secondly I quickly realized that I wouldn’t have a hard time finding books I want to reread over and over again for this week. So. Overreacting much? ALWAYS.

Of course I twisted the theme a bit to include series, because I can’t imagine rereading only parts of my favorites, I mean, would you?

But without waiting more, welcome to my Reread Over and Over Again shelf! 

The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness : these novels are very special to me because they’re part of the first I reviewed in English, and are probably the ones that made me fall in love with reading all over again. They’re harsh, unapologetic, captivating and moved me so, so much. TODD. MANCHEE. I CAN’T.

The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta : I’ve said it in my answers for The Sunshine Blogger Award, but Melina Marchetta is without doubt my favorite author of all times. I don’t know how she manages to win me over every time, but she does. She does splendidly, and her fantasy series is no exception.

The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima : the characters’ growth through the series is fantastic and I could reread Han & Raisa’s adventures forever. Plus the last book contains perhaps the most satisfying vengeance scenes I’ve ever read. LOVED. IT.

The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner : if you know me at least a little bit, I probably recommended them to you a million times. NOT SORRY ABOUT THAT. Sure, the first book is not the most amazing thing I’ve ever read, but who the fuck cares if the sequels ROCK??? Eugenides forever, and that is all.

 Any Marchetta’s contemporary novels, really, but Jellicoe Road and The Piper’s Son hold a special place in my heart, and I think that’s because they deal with grief in a way that kinda…well… broke my fucking heart? Made it whole? Grief is such a personal thing, really. Both of these amazing novels talked to me in a way very few can, and I will never be tired of rereading them. Ever.

 The Cyclone series by Courtney Milan : as I said in my post about my favorite authors of romance novels, this series is FANTASTIC and DIVERSE and SO MANY EMOTIONS, I can’t even. They remind me I can feel when life does its best to make me forget it.

,,  : Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz, Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn, The Wicker King by Kayla Ancrum : these three books have something in common : THEY CRUSHED ME. And I loved it, because it’s how I roll, I presume. Seriously, though : I don’t even know how many times I read them already. Never too many, that’s for sure.

Of course there are more, MANY MORE, but I had to choose, alright? I just have to hope that I’ll have the occasion to talk about my other favorite someday.


34606064 Last minute addition : I just finished this book yesterday and I’ll post my review tomorrow but I MUST add Jade City by Fonda Lee in this list. I just have to, because it entered my all-time favorites almost instantly, and I already reread so many parts that I know I’ll come back to it forever. IT’S BRILLIANT & NASTY & WONDERFUL and I’m so in love, GAH.

 

What are the books or series you could reread over and over again? Tell me in the comments!

    • YES! I don’t know how many times I read it, but I remember the second time being even better than the first (we understand the beginning way more clearly, so it’s even more emotional). Thanks for visiting!

  3. I had conflicted feelings to this Top Ten Tuesday ( my first one! 😁 ), I was happy but freak out because I re-read almost everything I read. I know, strange. 😅

    I have Teeth, The Wicker King and The Knife of Never Letting Go on my reading list, but I didn’t read any of your re-read forever. Although, I spot with my little bookworms eyes a serie I might like to read now…

    I’m so waiting for your review of Jade City, you sounded so excited on Twitter! 😊

  4. I’ve had the Patrick Ness books on my shelf for sooo long….maybe 7 or so years? Still yet to read them lol. Definitely need to although people keep telling me how heartbreaking they are.

    The Seven Realms series looks really interesting.
