Re-reading Books

I came across Rachel @ Fiktshun 's blog post about Re-reading and re-rating. It really had me thinking, that I DO have a lot of books that I actually really need to re-read. Some I just plain love, and need to experience it again. Others I remember I loved, but have no recollection of what happened in the book. That's pretty much my biggest problem right now.

So many sophomore novels are coming out this year in 2012. I read a lot of the first books in 2011, but come to think of it, I don't remember more than half of the character's names. So here are just some books that I want to re-read.

Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

I read this back in the summer of 2011, and I absolutely ADORED IT. One of the best angel books I have ever read. The second book, Angel Fire, is now out, and I really want to get my hands on them. Buuuuuut I can't. Because all I really remember is that Willow and Alex are in love and there are bad angels in the book. Pretty sad, I know, I have terrible memory. So I may just have to pick this back up very soon.

Man, I read this one waaay back when it first was released. I remember that I loved how it was action packed. And it was a SCI-FI. That I actually really enjoyed. And mystery. The blend was perfect. A Million Suns is now out, and I also have a very strong urge to grab it, but I don't really remember the character's names, or what happened in the end. I need to pick this one up in the very near future. (No pun intended)

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I read this one also in the summer of 2011, and this angel book is also one of my favorites. Very different from other stories. And TUCKER! I remember that I was team Tucker. For some reason, this one is fresher in my head, but I still want to read it again before reading Hallowed, which is also already out. It's still a little foggy.

Oh my. I'm so disappointed in myself. I read this one in 6th or 7th grade, I can't remember. THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO. I'm in 9th grade now, and I remember that this wasn't all that amazing. But I was in 6/7th grade, I probably didn't understand the amazing and  holiness of it. I feel so bad. I actually have to read this. I never continued the series, either. And I CLEARLY need to.

Hmmm, I think I read this one in Feb/March/April of 2011. I kind of skimmed through it, since I hadn't even read the entire Mortal Instruments series. I did like what I read, though. Gah, writing this post makes me ashamed of myself...

I can honestly say that I don't remember when I read this. I feel like it was maybe at the end of 2010 or early 2011. I read it before it became really popular. I loved it, but it didn't "change me" like it did to a lot of people. So I feel like I need to pick it back up and see if it makes a difference.

Now for 2 books that are just my absolute FAVORITES that I feel like reading again. 

Sigh. I read Lola and the Boy Next Door not too long ago, and it really made me realize how much I missed Anna. I read this one in the summer of 2011, and I really, truly miss it. I need to buy this book.

SO. AMAZING. This is my most favorite dystopian.. ever. Insurgent is coming out soon! (ish) And I WILL read it again before it's release date. I keep telling myself to not read The Hunger Games because I want to like Divergent more. :) I have so much love for this one. 

So that's it, guys! I have A LOT of books to reread... such LESS time for so 
MANY books. D: Do you guys have books you want/need to re-read? If so, what?


  1. I just reread City of Bones! Jace is hilaarious<3 I'm going to slowly make my through the next three books until the fifth comes out..!

    Definitely need to reread AtU since the sequel's out now. Don't know if I can suffer through Amy's chapters again though, haha.

    Have fun reading! It's so nice to revisit worlds and stories(:

  2. Just so you know there is a thing called Happily Ever Endings that a group of bloggers does that is posted on Amber's blog, Down the Rabbit Hole. There you can see the ending of books and read that in order to remember before you read the sequel. It might help refresh your memory since we recap the last 100ish pages of the book. I know Angel Burn is on there because I wrote that one. Not sure about the others but you can check it out.

    1. Hmm... that could be helpful, thaanks! But I might just want to re-read some books, just to relive them. :) Thanks for the info, I will check it out when I need it! :D

  3. I've been doing a LOT of re-reading lately. Most of the books I've read before, was before I started my blog. So I'm going to try re-reading and making reviews.
    P.S. I'm a new follower. My blog is at reviewingwhatimreading.blogspot.com

    1. I need to start re-reading books, seriously! Hey thanks for following. :)

  4. I have been re-reading all my favorite books since i start my blog a mouth ago. I really love Claudia Gray's books. she has a beautiful descriptions of settings. I also read Anna once and loved it, nothing like a book set in france.
