Hello! We’re well over a week into September now and it’s been chilly outside which basically means autumn is here, and there’s something about this time of year that always makes me want to cozy-up and re-read my favourite books as if my TBR isn’t already about to topple over and squash me. After talking about re-reading The Hunger Games in my September TBR, I started to get nostalgic about all my faves, and, well, I’ve fallen into a pit of nostalgia so I decided to make a list of some the books/series that I want to revisit sometime soon.
Is anyone even surprised that The Lunar Chronicles made it onto this list? I talk about this series so much and it always makes me nostalgic. I think I can officially label this series My Favourite. It hasn’t even been a year since I first read them but I already miss the characters and am planning my next read.
Like I said in my September TBR post, The Hunger Games was the book that got me back into reading after reading nothing for years. The books, and then the movie franchise, really gave me something to look forward to during a time when I really needed it and they introduced me to the world of YA, which eventually led to me starting my blog! So I’m really grateful for those books.
I still remember how excited I was when an ARC of Frostblood arrived in the post, and how I stayed up until the early hours of the morning to finish reading it. Ruby and Arcus stole my heart and I really loved being a part of their journey. I’ve already re-read Frostblood twice before each sequel came out, so I really should re-read the others more, too. It’s only fair.
The Night Circus was utter perfection in my eyes. It’s a book that I associate really strongly with autumn too, so every year, without fail since I first read it, I always want to revisit this book when it starts to get colder outside. It was magical and romantic and beautiful and it feels like a warm hug whenever I think about it.
I only read Uprooted for the first time a few months ago, but it was the type of book that I can see myself reading again and again. The friendship, the magic, the story — I utterly adored it all.
Strange the Dreamer is another book that I’ve only recently read, but it’s one that became a fast favourite. This book was like an ode to dreamers and it made me so nostalgic for a world that doesn’t even exist, so looking back on this book makes me very happy.
I’ve already re-read Caraval three times and I could still read it again. There’s something about this book’s mixture of magic and escapism that just feels so warm and fuzzy to me and I will never not love Scarlett Dragna.
I literally just finished this book half an hour ago (yesterday evening, by the time this post goes up) and I hopped straight on my laptop to add it to this list because there is no way that I can’t re-read this book. There were so many parts that gave me chills and I really, really cannot wait to get my hands on a finished copy so that I can read it again. (My review will be up soon!)
What are your thoughts on re-reading? Are there any books you’d like to read again? Let me know in the comments!
