Earlier in the month I wrote about the books that I really need to read in 2020, the ones that I’ve had sat on my shelves for way too long. Today’s post is one of those ‘similar but different’ kind of things, as I wanted to share with you some series that I have already read and loved, and am desperate to pick back up.
I swear half the reason I never get around to the books on my physical TBR is because I re-read my faves but why would you only read a book you love ONCE?!
This series was one of the first YA trilogies that I read and loved as part of the book community back in 2016. I am cheating a little as I have already re-read these in 2018 but with the upcoming Netflix TV show and the second book in the Nikolai duology I really want to revisit this world!
Following on from the above, this duology is also set in the Grishaverse and the storyline will be featured in the Netflix show too. I have read Six of Crows twice but Crooked Kingdom only once, so I do have some catching up to do. I also feel like annotating these books this time around so I’ll see how I get on with that.
This is another series that I fell in love with in 2017, whilst at university. I have vivid memories of reading The Mime Order in between lectures and seminars in the university cafe, and actually being asked to move on because they were closing up and I’d been there for hours! We’re due another four books in this series so I would love to re-read the first three to prepare. I don’t think we will see book four for a while yet so I definitely have the time!
Would it even be my blog if I didn’t mention SJM? So I’ve actually read the majority of the books in this series two or three times, Kingdom of Ash aside, and as I mentioned in my goals for 2020 post I want to re-read and annotate this series this year. With eight books including Assassin’s Blade, it is a big commitment, but I love this series and can’t wait to make notes about my thoughts and feelings. (P.s. I’m not mentioning ACOTAR in this post as I’m already part way through my re-read of this series which I started last year!)
So I never actually finished this series… dun dun dun. I started the books back in 2017 and raced through the first two but never got around to picking up the third. While I did enjoy them I didn’t love them as much as I anticipated, so I’m hoping that I can appreciate them more in my re-read. Especially as V has confirmed she is writing more books about these characters!
Another series which I never fisnihed. Oops. I loved the first book when I read in just over a year ago but for some reason just didn’t continue with the series. I’ve heard some really great things about the rest of the books so I’m looking forward to giving them another go.
In the near future I do want to write a post specifically about re-reading, the pros and cons and why I choose to do it, but for now I just wanted to share the books and series I really want to revisit.
