(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
This week, it’s Top Ten Tuesday REWIND! That means it’s time to pick a topic that I missed in the past and make a list for it now.
I’ve chosen to do ten books I want to re-read, which was originally done way back in 2011.
10) The Shiver trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater
When I read the Shiver series, I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well actually, I don’t like bread that much… Maybe the best thing since white chocolate. But if I re-read it now, with so many more teen inter-species paranormal romances under my belt, I don’t think I’d be impressed at all.
9) ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ by Lionel Shriver
8) The Eve trilogy by Anna Carey
7) The Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz
6) The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
5) ‘Atonement’ by Ian McEwan
4) ‘Crank’ by Ellen Hopkins
‘Crank’ is written in free verse, and I read it so quickly – my eyes flying over the pages – that I actually felt physically sick when I finished it, and I’d given myself a migraine. I’d like to take my time on this one, because it’s beautifully written.
3) The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I never read ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ because I couldn’t remember what had happened in the previous books, and I wanted to re-read them before finishing the series. I should probably get on to that, because the Shadowhunter world is rapidly slipping away from me.
2) The Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
I read the first two books in the Divergent trilogy in a day, but the third book took me over four months. I’m wondering if that’s why I didn’t like it as much – because I just couldn’t connect with it. If I read these again, I think my opinion will be completely different.
1) ‘Looking For Alaska’ by John Green
When I first read ‘Looking For Alaska’, it was the best book I’d ever read. I laughed, I cried, and I put it on a pedestal in my head: favourite book of all time, ever. But now I’ve read so many more books, would I still choose that one as my favourite? Will I still enjoy it as much? I need to re-read it and find out.
I’m surprised by how many of these are series – that’ll explain why I’m not re-reading them, because there’s just too many installments! Are there any books you’re dying to re-read?
