Hey friends! I hope that you’re all having/had a good Friday! I worked, ate food, and read, so pretty chill, haha.
I don’t know about all of you, but I love to reread books. Love it. I love to visit old friends, especially knowing their personal arcs and etc (though that can sometimes be annoying). Finding easter eggs and inconsistencies. It’s fantastic.
I mean, they don’t even have to be my favorites! I just … I love it.
So today I am sharing with you the top SIX reread series/books. Ones that I think are great to be reread. I enjoy rereading them. And as I’m sure you can imagine, many of these are my favorite books… 😉
So yeah. I actually just finished my fourth reread of the series (i love it so much, you guys ❤ ❤ ). Obviously, this (like almost all of the other books on this list) is my fave series. But. They still make good rereads.
Now, the drama can be a smidge annoying when you know the turnout and aren’t super invested in the characters (but then why would you be rereading the trilogy?). But. I think that it is kind of fun reading back, getting to see my babies grow. There’s some sort of nostalgia in rereading a love triangle, knowing how it’s going to turn out.
And besides that, they’re just my favorite books. 😉
It’s kinda funny. Eleanor is a fantastic book … but I don’t exactly know what I love about it? I love to reread it, but it really isn’t my favorite book.
I think something that would draw in rereaders is the mystery of it all. I mean, I’ve read it three times and still haven’t figured everything out (I don’t think that I’ll ever be able to).
Also, the beautiful prose of this book. UGH. Don’t get me started. It is completely breath-stealing.
Both times that I’ve read this (wow, i need to read this again), I’ve gotten something different from it. There are some many subtleties dug way in. Some much hurt and truth hidden within. You can glean something new from each read.
And besides that, this is a story that will just live with you, whether you want it to or not. So you will definitely be crawling back to Leonard Peacock for another read. 😉
Honestly, guys, I can’t even tell you why I love reading these books so much. So maybe they shouldn’t even be here on the list… but what the heck. I’m only here to break rules, tbh. 😜
But yeah. And – I know that I said this in all of my reviews – I didn’t love, like, any of the characters the first trip round (except Morpheus. We will forever love Morpheus), but with every reread, I understand and fall with the characters just a little bit more.
Same for the plots! There’s so much hidden throughout and symbolism and stuff, that you could read them forever and still find more. (okay, maybe not forever…)
Yeah… this is just another one of those that I don’t particularly know why I love it so. But I do.
There’s a whole mystery to it, and like Eleanor, I don’t think that we’ll ever be able to quite unravel it. But eh, it’s find trying, right?
Along with that, I just love reading from Daniel’s eyes. How he processes things. Reacts. He’s just a narrator that I adore.
To close this one (and this post) off, finally, it just draws me in. I’m wanting to be reading it when it isn’t in my hands, or even anywhere close. I JUST NEED IT FOLKS. I’M ADDICTED.
So how bout y’all? Do you love to reread books? What about your favorites? Please, please tell me them – I’d love to have more books to be total trash for 😍
