SERIES WORTH RE-READING

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with some more recommendations! I don’t think I’ve ever done this before so I thought I would try something different and recommend some series worth a re-read! I’ve chosen not to include Harry Potter or Percy Jackson because I thought they were too obvious, so hopefully, you guys will like these other series too!

Completed Series

 books book books The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)  The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy, #1)

MAGNUS CHASE TRILOGY 3/3

I love this trilogy and I have no shame. I’ll admit that I haven’t actually re-read this trilogy but, I d plan on re-reading it next year. Honestly, I’m adding it to this list, based on the fact that every Riordan book is worth re-reading and because I’ve had to actually stop myself from re-reading this trilogy every month since I finished it.

THE RAVEN CYCLE 4/4

I have re-read all the books in this series apart from The Raven King (book 4). This is one of those series where you pick up something new upon each re-read so, I think it is definitely worth it! I love books like this, where you are constantly learning something new about the characters or plot, I think it makes the experience even more fun!

THE DOORS TRILOGY 3/3

I had to add this trilogy because when do I not recommend these books (and this author, in general). I have a goal to re-read this trilogy every year until I get to busy to, it’s not a fancy goal but subconsciously it’s just something I want to do. I feel like the year I stop re-reading these books will be the year Earth burns to a crust and whatever’s left of my own goodness evaporates, but I’m not being dramatic or anything. Seriously, I love this series and it honestly just makes me so sad to see how few people have actually read it.

Unfinished Series

 books book books Caraval (Caraval, #1)  I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever After  Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)

CARAVAL – 2/3 published

So far I’ve read Caraval 3 times and Legendary once though I can see myself re-reading it many more times in the future. This series has amazing writing and is full of twists and turns so that it’s even more fun when you re-read it! I already can’t wait for book 3 to come out so I can see how this trilogy comes to a close!

I HATE FAIRYLAND – 3/? published

This series is hilarious. It’s incredibly violent and as you can see y the cover, so bright! The colouring in this comic is completely different to what you would expect considering the main character is a psycho serial killer in a land of monsters and manipulative fairies. This series is brilliant and I will read pretty much anything Skottie Young illustrates and I hope you all decide to pick this one up!

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER – 2/4 published

If you know me at all, you already know that I love this series probably too much, especially considering there are only two books. Either way, Hunting Prince Dracula is one of my favourite books in all existence and I am so happy that it exists but so sad that more people haven’t read it. The mystery is amazing, the romance will have you swooning and the banter will leave you cackling.

SHOULD WE RE-READ BOOKS? // She’s finally back with a discussion!

Hey guys, today I am finally back with a discussion! This post might actually be an honest to God, miracle. I rarely write discussions because while I find it easy to think up topics, I find the act of writing the posts to be really daunting. So welcome to one of the only discussions you will see from me ever. Just kidding, I am really hoping to make more of an effort with discussions this year!

the pros

 

  • familiarity

Re-reading books is something I love to do. Mainly for the nostalgia factor, especially if I’m reading a book from my childhood like the Door trilogy, Harry Potter series or Henry Hory Hobson. When I re-read these books now almost ten years later after having read them the first time I am hit with all these feelings, mostly happiness but, also sadness, they, more than anything else really show me how much I have been through in my life so far. They remind me upon every re-read of how much older I am getting (which should be more obvious, but somehow it’s not) and how bad my memory is lol.

I find that re-reading a book, particularly a favourite really helps me to get out of reading slumps!

  • it’s fun

I mean come on, re-reading books is so much fun! You know, that feeling when you pick up an old favourite and you figure why not just re-read the first page for old nostalgia reasons and suddenly you’re 100 pages into The Philosopher’s Stone and why not just keep going? I mean, you can’t wipe that smile off your face so why not just keep going?

  • you pick up on more stuff

I’m pretty sure that every time I pick up The Doors trilogy or Harry Potter I definitely re-discover some obscure plot element or I pick up more of the little things in the writing or background of the story and there is nothing more fun than that.

I know that while I read a lot while I was younger I did miss a lot of info from books so when I re-read older books nowadays it’s pretty much like reading a whole new book

the cons

 

  • you could be reading other books

My inner monologue when re-reading a certain series: Why are you re-reading Harry Potter for the 15th time when you could be reading pretty much anything else? You literally have whole shelves of unread books, what are you doing with your life? Get your priorities straight!

  • you feel guilty

Ahh, how my guilt shines through in my inner monologue!

I’m coming to terms with my love for re-reading but I often still feel guilty! Usually, it all comes down to whether or not I want to prioritise a book I usually read every 2 or 3 years or whether I want to re-read a brand new 2018 release!

  • you might end up hating it

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO IF I RE-READ A BOOK OR GOD FORBID, A FAVOURITE AND I END UP HATING IT???

This is my worst fear with re-reading books. I love books pretty intensely so, what happens if I hate a book? How am I supposed to react to that?
