God, this topic is amazing.
Truthfully, I’m not one to reread books. I know, sue me. But I just don’t. AND YET… There are books I’ve reread, and when I ignore my glaringly large TBR pile to re-read a book, you know it’s good.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. You can check out the rest of the topics here.
The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski || I read these books first physically, fell in love, then listened to the audiobooks the second time around. The second time I noticed things I didn’t when I first read it, and that’s the part I love about rereading any series. 🙂
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling || Physical books, audiobooks, illustrated editions, I am all over that! Did you know there are two audiobook versions? One read by Jim Dale and the other read by Stephen Fry. Both are great!
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas || I’ll admit that book 1 is by far not my favorite of the series, but I truly think each book gets better and better. When Tower of Dawn released, I wasn’t sure anything could top my love for Queen of Shadows. Boy was I wrong! I can’t believe the final book of the trilogy will be out this fall!
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater || I also read this series first physically and then listened to the audiobook the second time. It’s another audiobook that blows me away, where the narrator fits so perfectly!
An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir || I know this series isn’t done yet, but with Reaper releasing in June, I definitely plan on rereading this book, not only because it was so good the first time around, but because I need to refresh my memory and it will be a pleasure to read again!
Okay, I noticed that I keep doing series, which far surpasses the topic itself because it’s supposed to be books, not series.
These books absolutely killed me, and I recommend them to those who are looking for a contemporary with a heavier tone.
TSIAaS and American Panda both have PoCs (persons of color) as their main characters. The former also has a Korean character and love interest, so of course, I was all over that. American Panda’s main character struggles with keeping the traditions of her culture while wanting to buck against them as well. It’s definitely an interested and endearing read, trying to figure out who you are when you’re part of two worlds.
Leave you T10Ts below and I’ll check them out as well! If you have recommendations as well, books you LOVED, please let me know! As if my giant TBR needs more books… But still! 😛
