Hey y’all. Today I’m going to talk about books that I want to re-read this year. I have not re-read a book since I was a kid, so this is something new. Recently, I listed all of the series that I have started and I’m trying to get that list down to either ones I want to continue and ones that I’m good with. There are a few series that have second books coming out and I want to re-read a few of the ones that I had lukewarm feelings. Also, there are a few books that I consider favorites and I really want to re-read those. Here is a list of books that I would like to re-read this year and maybe this will motivate me to do this more often.
City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty – This is the first book in an own voices Middle Eastern fantasy series. This book had all of the things that I enjoy in a fantasy: political intrigue, a dash of romance, and djinn. For some reason I didn’t connect with the characters, which isn’t always a deal-breaker, but if I remember correctly, I actively disliked the main character. The second book, The Kingdom of Copper, released January 22, and I really want to re-read this to see if I will be continuing the series.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – This was my favorite book of 2017 and is still the book that I most often recommend for people to read. I want to re-read this soon to see if objectively this book stands up.
The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne – This is another top favorite book of all time and I really want to spend time with Cyrill again.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton – This is another YA fantasy series that I enjoyed but I still don’t know if I want to continue the series. The second book comes out in February I believe and while I remember the cliffhanger at the end, I really want to make the final decision if I will be continuing the series.
These are some of the books that I want to re-read in 2019. I don’t know if I will do it, but it’s something that I’m greatly interested in doing. We’ll see if I actually do it.
What are your thoughts on re-reading? Do you do it? Let’s chat in the comments.
