Today's topic is technically just "books I want to reread", but I've been working on doing a lot of rereading this year because I really want to end up that I've written reviews for all the books I have marked as read on Goodreads. Which basically means that I've been working on rereading books that I haven't read in a million years. This means the books I love and have read over and over in the past are languishing by the wayside. BUT I CAN'T READ THEM AGAIN BECAUSE THEY ALREADY HAVE REVIEWS, DAMMIT.
You see my dilemma.
So I changed this week's topic a little to be the books I've already reviewed (and, in some cases, already read this year!) but still really want to read again.
1. Persuasion - Jane Austen
My favourite Austen book forever and ever and ever. I usually read it annually, but not this year. I'm planning on rereading and reviewing Northanger Abbey before the end of the year, so poor old Persuasion has fallen by the wayside. Womp womp.
2. Carpe Jugulum - Terry Pratchett
Hands down my favourite Pratchett book. The characters are amazing, the story is phenomenal, and my copy is signed. But I have so many unreviewed Pratchett books to get through before I can reread this. Sigh.
3. The Parasol Protectorate series - Gail Carriger
Oh my God, I adore everything about this series. And I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally want to reread them all. For the meantime, I'm surviving on the Finishing School series, and the endless wait for the Custard Protocol series.
4. Attachments - Rainbow Rowell
I've already read this once this year, so I should have had my fill of this one. But nope. Never. Must read again ASAP.
5. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
This one falls into the same category as Persuasion. It's been a favourite since I first had to read it for school in 1998, and I tend to reread it every year. But this year, there are far too many other things to reread to make time for Jane. Especially when I need to reread Villette and The Professor!
6. Fairwil - Alysia Gray Painter
Technically, this one isn't even out yet. I beta read it for Alysia earlier in the year, and I WANT TO READ IT AGAIN SO BADLY BECAUSE IT WAS SO STINKING CUTE AND FEELSY AND I LOVE ALL THE CHARACTERS SO MUCH. You and me have a date on New Year's Day, book.
7. The Throne of Glass series - Sarah J. Maas
I've read all of the books in this series so far this year, and yet I want to read them again and again and again. I foresee a full series reread before book 4 comes out next year.
8. Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein
I really want to reread this one, because I loved it so, so much. But I'm not sure my feels could take it. Not without massive doses of medicinal ice cream, anyway.
9. Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
This has been a really polarising book for so many people, and I really want to reread it when I'm not on a plane/jetlagged to see if my opinion of it changes. I also want to reread it having seen the film and compare the two.
10. The Chaos Walking trilogy - Patrick Ness
I tend to forget that I even own these books, because they're somewhere in the depths of my Kindle. But mostly I think I'm holding off on these ones because I'm not quite sure I can cope with reading about certain events again (MANCHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE).
Are you holding off on rereading anything?
