On Monday, I shared some books I want to read during 2017. A few are new (soon to be) released, while the others (most of them) are backlist titles. While, I’m excited to read some new to me books, there are a few books I’ve read awhile ago that I want to read again.
Some I read years ago as a teen, while others I read a little while ago…but I want to read them anyway and they’re gonna get read!
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones // Goodreads
I read (and re-read) this book years ago, but I want to give it another read. For old times sake, but also to see how and why Sophie’s character is so interesting. I love the Studio Ghibli film and I know they’re both different, so I’d like to read it again to remember why I liked the book to begin with.
The Knife of Never Letting Go (and the rest of the Chaos Walking trilogy) by Patrick Ness // Goodreads
I read this series close to five years ago and it has stayed on my mind ever since. It’s so compelling and thought-provoking. Just thinking about it makes me sad, but I want to re-read them so badly. Plus, Chaos Walking is getting a movie adaptation, so I gotta prepare!
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray // Goodreads
I read this book when I was in high school and devoured the whole series. I’d like to read it again to remember what the story is about. However, I have a feeling this might be one of those books that teenage-Samantha really liked, but 20something-Samantha might not. Who knows!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen // Goodreads
For the longest time, my goal was to read Pride and Prejudice. I accomplished that goal two years ago! Now, I want to read it again because I’m crazy (obviously).
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman // Goodreads
I read this series when I was in middle school and I think it might be one of the reasons why I got hooked on this genre. I was greatly disappointed by the movie (let’s not go there), and I’m eager to give it another read it’s been almost ten years!
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe // Goodreads
I’ve been wanting to re-read this book since the first time I finished reading it. This time around, I want to read it for the writing and the characterization. Ari and Dante felt very memorable to me and I want to go back and find out why.
Well, here they are! Some books I want to re-read in 2017. It’s not that many (I don’t think).
Are you a re-reader? Is there some books you want to go back to and read again? Or do you have some books that you re-read all the time?
