Hi friends, I wanted to do something a bit different today and discuss some of my favourite books that are my go to re-reads!
I am the worst for re-reading books sometimes, especially when I have ARCs or new releases that I want to read… I recently re-read the Percy Jackson series even though at that point I had 100+ books on my TBR. In my defence, I am very much a mood reader and none of my books were taking my fancy.
1 – The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, I would re-read this series straight after I’d just read it if I could, I love these books so much they have a special place in my heart.
2 – The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Much like PJO these books have a special place in my heart and I will never tire of reading these (or watching the films, they’re a guilty pleasure of mine).
3 – The End of Mr Y by Scarlet Thomas. I am OBSESSED with this book, let me tell you. I find something new to love about it every time I re-read it (also hit me up if you’ve read it, I would love to discuss it with you!)
4 – The Shining by Stephen King. I mean of course this one was going to make my list, I’m pretty sure I read this at least once a year. It usually features around Halloween time and then I thoroughly scare myself by going and watching the film.
5 – The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. I am also obsessed with this book, it’s the first Dan Brown book I ever read and it really ignited my love for his books so I always go back to this one.
6 – Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I may have had a small (large, huge, massive, fucking ginormous) crush on Patch as a teenager, which has definitely not *cough* stuck with me into adulthood, so I used to read this book like every other week.
ALSO, shout out to everyone on booktwt who has made me realise that having a crush on fictional characters is totally normal and in fact encouraged by other readers, you guys are the best <3333333
There are also some recent reads that I would love to re-read in the future because for various reasons they really stuck with me…
The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack | Chopping Spree by Angela Sylvaine | Dreaming of Florence by T A Williams | The Scam List by Kurt Dinan
I won’t review these books when I re-read them because there’s no point, I might do a little comparison post to see if my feelings are still the same but otherwise I’ll just enjoy my re-reads in peace.
Be sure to let me know if you have any particular faves that are falling apart because you re-read them so much!
Until next time, Em xxx
