This week, Bekka and Lyn discuss their top books that they will eventually reread.
1. The Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas. The plan was to reread this a few months ago when I purchased the hardcover set. But somehow time got away from me. I really want to reread these soon, though, especially now that I own The Assassin’s Blade. Hopefully sometime in early 2015.
2. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson. I really, really liked this book, and it was a big surprise. But after reading a lot of the reviews, it appears that I totally missed the mystery part of it. I want to reread and see if I was being dense or if the mystery was as easily solvable as I think – so easy that I didn’t even know it was mysterious.
3. Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause. I just love this book, a lot. I read it when I was really young and it represents a lot of firsts for me, particularly the first time I read a book with a heroine who was in charge of her own sexuality. It opened a lot of doors for me. I’ve reread this quite a few times, but it’s been a while since the last time.
4. Tithe by Holly Black. This the first Holly Black book that I’ve ever read and obviously that means it has a special place in my heart. Holly Black has a signature style of urban fantasy – no one out there comes close. I want to dive back into the only fae book I actually like.
5. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I read this one for the first time very recently, and it was basically all pain all the time. It was also a lot of confusion. Now that I understand what’s going on in the beginning of the book, I think a reread would bring up a whole new type of appreciation.
1. Vampire Empire series by Clay and Susan Griffith: The trilogy is my favorite paranormal series, and I always wanted to dive back into the three-book collection.
2. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: I read this series when the movies first released, and at the time, it was a little difficult. I think now it would go over a bit better, now that I have more reading hours under my belt.
3. The Norse Myths by Kevin Crossley-Holland: This was the book that kicked off my whole Viking/Norse obsession when I first began dabbling in the subject. I have always wanted to go back and go through the collection once again to refresh my memory.
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor: Now that the series is out and complete, I want to return to that world and fall in love with it all over again. I miss some of the characters.
5. Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick: Since I have labeled this my favorite book of all time, it would be wise to go back and catch some things I missed the first time around.
What books do you plan on rereading down the road?
