Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s prompt was actually to list Ten Books I Could Reread Forever, but I think you guys already know what a lot of my favorite titles are. Instead, I decided to focus on books I want to reread in 2018! For fun, I’m also adding a “priority level” to each book, based on which ones I’m most (or least) excited to reread.
Click the book’s title for a link to my review!
1. House of Leaves — Mark Z. Danielewski
I remember reading this bizarre horror novel as a teen, but I honestly have no clue what it was about. I know that I didn’t fully appreciate it at that age, but I want to give it another try this year.
2. Twilight — Stephenie Meyer
If you haven’t heard my Twilight spiel before, here it is: I was totally a Twihard hipster. I was introduced to the series literally within a month of the first book’s release, and pre-ordered books 2-4. This series was my life for years as a kid, and while I know it’s hailed as one of the most cringe-worthy series nowadays, I think it was really important to the YA genre in its time, and I’m curious to see how I would feel about it now.
3. Eragon — Christopher Paolini
Eragon was another childhood favorite (as in, I read it so many times that my hardback is literally falling apart), but for some reason, I never finished the series. Even after the later books started releasing, I just kept rereading Eragon over and over again. Anyways, I want to reread it this year and finally move on with the series!
4. Sabriel — Garth Nix
Okay, so, technically I’m cheating a little bit by adding this one, because I already reread it in January, but this was literally the very top item on my reread list for 2018, and I really enjoyed it! The writing wasn’t perfect for my taste, but it made me very interested in the rest of the series.
5. Tithe — Holly Black
Like Sabriel, this is a book that I know I really liked as a kid, but I just don’t remember much of anything about it! I know I never continued the series, either, so it’s also on my list of series to reread/restart in 2018.
6. Fruits Basket/Furuba series — Natsuki Takaya
This one’s a manga series, and I positively adored it as a kid. I think Fruits Basket was actually the first manga I ever got really invested in (and I liked the anime, too), but I never got to read the last couple of volumes when they released. I recently found the entire set of collector’s editions at my library, so I’m working my way through the series now and loving it so much!
7. The Hunger Games — Suzanne Collins
I think I’ve read this trilogy from start to finish at least six times, but if I were doing the regular “books I’ll always reread” prompt for this week’s T10T, this would be the #1 spot on that list. I never get tired of these books. I’d trade at least half of my soul for Suzanne Collins to write a few standalone prequels, like Haymitch’s and Finnick’s games, tbh.
8. North American Lake Monsters — Nathan Ballingrud
I read this horror anthology a few years ago and really liked it, but I don’t remember it very well, and frankly, my reasoning for wanting to reread it has a side note: my tastes in horror have changed tremendously over the last few years. I recommend this anthology to people constantly, but it occurred to me recently that, with how much my tastes have changed, who knows if I even still love it?
9. Gemina — Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman
This is actually on my March TBR, in preparation for the Obsidio release, because… well, I never seem to get tired of this amazing series?
10. Cress — Marissa Meyer
Cress was the last TLC installment I read, and I want to give it a reread before finishing the series later this year, because Cress and Thorne are adorable and I need more of them in my life.
Do you like to reread books? If so, what’s the next book you plan on rereading?
