Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
This week’s theme is actually Titles That Would Make Good Band Names but I didn’t dig it so I went with Books I’d Like to Reread. Before I started blogging I reread books often. In fact, most of my reads were rereads. It wasn’t until I dove head first into blogging that I truly saw how many titles were out there and I haven’t looked back. However, there are some old favorites I’d like to pick up again.
It is no secret that I adore The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon. The Bone Season was the book that truly drug me up and out of a years long reading slump. Before the next book in this series, The Mask Falling, is released next year I want to reread these first three. If you enjoy dystopian fantasy then I cannot recommend these books enthusiastically enough. Shannon has put together a vivid and fascinating world with fantasy elements that suck me into the story and won’t let me go.
Here is another series I love that I would like to reread in its entirety. Rick Riordan’s original Percy Jackson and the Olympians series stands out in my head as one of the best of all time. When my daughter is a little older, these are the first middle grade books I intend to give her but, before that, I want to reread them myself.
Into the Drowning Deep is a book that completely surprised me as horror is a genre I read only on the rare occasion. However, for some reason, I was drawn to this book and picked is up from the library a couple years ago. I was completely absorbed by this story and and honestly can’t wait until I can forget some of the major plot points so I can read this again.
An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night are two books that absolutely blew me away when I first read them. While I have the third book on my shelf, I haven’t read it yet. I’m waiting until a little closer to the release date of A Sky Beyond the Storm and then I am going to reread the first two books in this series and then read through the third, A Reaper at the Gates, for the first time. I’m honestly pretty excited about it. Maybe I’ll try to make a reading group for it leading up to the release or see if I can find one that has already been formed. Can’t wait.
That is it for this Tuesday, folks! I hope you all are staying safe and enjoying the happiest of reading.
