Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s challenge was cozy/wintry reads, but as I’m writing this post, it’s sunny and in the mid 70s here, so I’m not feeling particularly cozy! Instead, I thought I’d knock out one of my end-of-year posts a couple of weeks early: books I want to REread in 2019!
Before I jump into the list, let’s revisit my “books I want to reread in 2018” list (here) and see how I did.
1. House of Leaves ❌ did not reread
2. Twilight ✅ ⭐⭐⭐ review
3. Eragon ⛔ DNF
4. Sabriel ✅ ⭐⭐⭐ review
5. Tithe ✅ ⭐⭐⭐ review
6. Fruits Basket, Vol. 1 ✅ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
7. The Hunger Games ✅ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
8. North American Lake Monsters ❌ did not reread
9. Gemina ✅ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review
10. Cress ❌ did not reread
Now, on to 2019’s list:
1. North American Lake Monsters — Nathan Ballingrud
I’m really surprised I didn’t get around to this one in 2018, but I’m definitely moving it over to my 2019 list.
2. Cress — Marissa Meyer
This is another one I’m surprised I didn’t reread, but I still want to read it again before continuing on to Winter.
3. Catching Fire — Suzanne Collins
I really loved rereading THG, so I want to continue rereading the series soon!
4. The Illuminae Files (trilogy) — Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
This is one of my favorite series, and I’ve been dying to reread the whole trilogy via audiobooks lately, so it’s one of my first priorities for 2019.
5. Dreamland — Sarah Dessen
Dreamland was one of the first super heavy YA contemp reads of my life, and it resonated a lot with me at the time, but it’s one of the only Dessen books I’ve never reread.
6. The Nature of Jade — Deb Caletti
This was, I think, the first anxiety rep I ever saw and notably related to in a book, and I’ve read it many times since then and it still means just as much to me.
7. Sadie — Courtney Summers
I’ve only read this as an eARC, but I hear amazing things about the audiobook so I want to check it out!
8. An Enchantment of Ravens — Margaret Rogerson
I’m missing my sweet little cinnamon roll fae prince, Rook ♥
9. The Perks of Being a Wallflower — Stephen Chbosky
This was one of my all-time faves as a teen and still has my #1 favorite literary quote of all time, and I’m dying for Chbosky’s new book to come out, so I think I should reread this to help hold me over!
10. Harry Potter #1-3 — J. K. Rowling
I still haven’t read my illustrated copies of the first 3 books, and I’m long overdue for an HP reread. I’m hoping to add #4 to this list since Jim Kay thinks he’ll be able to finish GoF in time for a 2019 release! I don’t know if I’ll reread the non-illustrated books or just wait on the illustrated versions for those, but I guess it will depend on how much rereading time I can justify making in 2019.
