This week’s topic: Books We Want to Reread

This week, Bekka and Lyn discuss their top books that they will eventually reread.

Bekka’s Picks

PicMonkey Collage

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.

    I haven’t read any of these, but Jellicoe Road, Throne of Glass, and Tithe are all on my wishlist. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I still have to read The Throne of Glass series… soon hopefully! Jellicoe Road is one I’d love to do a re-read of as well. I loved it the first time but am still not convinced I was able to appreciate it enough.
    I am dying to do a LOTR re-read too. I never got around to reading the third book when i was younger but am determined to do it this next time I read!
