Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
One of my reading goals for 2021 is to re-read some of my all-time favourite books, and see if they still rank on my favourites list! To do so, I am going to pick one favourite book to re-read every other month from this list. I have been wanting to do this re-read challenge for so long, and I am very excited to try to do it this year!
The first book I want to read for my re-read challenge is CINDER by Marissa Meyer. The Lunar Chronicles series was one of my favourite book series ever, but I actually never found time to read the conclusion of the series, WINTER. While I plan on reading the first one, I hope to actually complete the series throughout the year and see if it still holds up overtime.
The second book I hope to re-read is DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth. This book was the book that hooked me on reading, so I am really looking forward to re-reading it. I can’t even remember the last time I read a dystopian novel, but I hope this one is just as good as I remember it to be. If I am not mistaken, I have actually re-read this novel a few times, but not in recent memory.
The third book I hope to re-read is THE STARTER WIFE by Nina Laurin. This book was my #1 favourite book of 2019, but unfortunately, I remember next to nothing about it. Hopefully it surprises me and is just as enjoyable as it was during my first read almost two years ago!
The fourth book I hope to re-read this year is THE LAND OF STORIES: THE WISHING SPELL by Chris Colfer. The entire Land of Stories series is one of my all-time favourite series, and certainly my favourite middle grade book series of all-time. I have re-read this particular book countless times, but not within the last four years. I cannot wait to dive back into this world!
The fifth book I hope to re-read this year is BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough. Whenever people ask me what my favourite book of all time is, I always say this one. This was my #1 favourite book of 2018, and the best book I had ever read at the time. I am really excited to re-read this one and see if it is solidified as my favourite book of all time!
The final book I hope to re-read this year is THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE by Cynthia Hand. This is my favourite holiday season book, and was in my top 3 books of 2018. Ever since I read this novel, I have read and loved a lot of other Cynthia Hand novels. She has a more mature YA title coming out this summer, and I am hoping to have this one read before I dive into her newest release!
Those are the six books I hope to re-read this year! Have you re-read any of your old favourite books? If so, how do they typically hold up overtime?
Good Night Book Owls!
