Books I’d Like to Revisit

I’m one of those people who loves rereading books. After all, it’s not like books are meant to be read once, and when you really love a book, why wouldn’t you want to revisit it at some point in your life? I like to revisit Harry Potter every now and then because it brings a little childhood comfort and it can usually bring me out of a reading slump.

It’s pretty normal for a four or five star read to get a reread from most bookworms. After all, that means we loved the book and it’s worth rereading. However, there have been times when I’ve found myself wanting to reread a book that I didn’t quite love, but didn’t hate either – typically the three star reads. Basically giving the book a second chance because there was probably something about the story I did love, which made me want to reread it. Sometimes I’ll even end up giving the book four stars after a second go-around.

So, while I shared some books that are on my TBR that I’d like to get to in 2021, these are some books I’d like to reread in 2021 if I find myself in the mood for them (or wanting to give them an accurate, current review because I read them before this blog was born).

The Eye of Minds – James Dashner

The Rule of Thoughts – James Dashner

The Game of Lives – James Dashner

Famous Last Words – Jennifer Salvato Dotorski

Called to Serve – Stefan Gulyas

One of Us is Lying – Karen M. McManus

This is Where it Ends – Marieke Nijkamp

Between the Lines – Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

Off the Page – Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

Attachments – Rainbow Rowell

Field Notes on Love – Jennifer E. Smith

Eliza and Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia

Of course, whether or not I actually get around to rereading these books remains to be seen, but there are the ones I’ve been wanting to revisit for at least the past year as I see them on my shelves. What I like about rereading books is that I find stuff that I missed in my first reading of it, which is true for most people.

What are some books you might want to reread next year?

    Your reasons for re-reading are the exact same as mine. I love re-reading books, especially those that were not great in the past but then turn out to be new favourites. At the moment I don’t have a set list of books I want to re-read in 2021, but I am thinking of picking up the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy again, as well as the first two Lord of the Rings books. I read the latter two for the first time fairly recently on audiobook but I feel that I need to read them again in physical format before picking up the final book.

    Nice! That’s so awesome that you re-read books, too 🙂 I’d like to re-read The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty, because it was so well-written, and because I want to know why I didn’t see the twist coming! 😅 I totally should have known!
