(18) Top Ten Books I Want To Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

In an ideal world, and if I actually had the time to reread, these are the books, characters, and worlds that I would most want to revisit. Probably because all of them have impacted me in some way or another.

1. The Raven Cycle
I mean, are you really surprised?

2. Bully
I loved this book so much, but I don't know if I can go through all that angst again even knowing what happens.

3. Circle Trilogy
Still the only series I've ever reread all the way through.

4. Divergent
There is a reason this is on the list. Okay, so I hated the last book in the trilogy. And I honestly don't know if I'd even like the books if I reread them. I have a feeling I wouldn't, but I kind of want to find out.

5. The Archers of Avalon
Still one of my favorite series EVER. Oh, Tristan. <3

6. The Kiss of Deception
Fabulous fantasy that I actually want to reread before the sequel because I need to fully grasp everything I missed the first time around.

7. The Infernal Devices
Because I loved this series so much. AND JEM. <3

8. Of Beast and Beauty
Still one of my favorite fairytale retellings, I adored it so much.

9. Lola and The Boy Next Door
This book just made me so freaking happy. I swear, it's been one of the most fun books I've read in years. And ALSO BECAUSE CRICKET!

10. Angelfall and World After
I don't want to reread these now, but I do want to binge the series once the third one comes out. BUY WHY OH WHY ARE THERE ONLY THREE BOOKS. WHY. This saddens me to no end.

I'm actually not a huge fan of rereading in general. And like I said above, there has only been one series I've ever reread completely, and that is the Circle Trilogy. And you know what? I'm in the mood to read those books again. Mhm, I miss my Cian. I also had the worst book hangover after finishing The Archers of Avalon, and so I immediately started that trilogy all over again. Only made it halfway through book two before I was ready for a different story altogether, though. Anyway, I know talk about those two series a lot. But they're two of my favorites and I will push them on anyone who is listening!

And I know I cheated, but THE SERIES COUNT AS ONE BOOK OKAY.

So what books do you want to reread if you had the time? Or if you love rereading your favorites, which ones would make your list? And I want your TTT links, my little foxes! :)

Also. Don't forget my international giveaway going on!

  1. I really need to start The Raven Cycle!
    I would love to reread the Infernal Devices Trilogy sometime soon, especially Clockwork Princess.
    I also need to read The Kiss of Deception, I bought it shortly after it was released but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
    Great list!

  2. Awesome list! The Raven Cycle made mine too. And I love your reason for re-reading Lola and The Boy Next Door...yes Cricket Bell is the best isn't he? =)

    1. I mean, why else would I want to reread it? Haha. :)

  3. OMG I almost added Divergent for the same reason! I reread them right before Allegiant came out, but now I wonder if I would hate them, knowing what I know. And YES- what is up with the only 3 Penryn and the End of Days books!? There were supposed to be 5, no? But considering it took like, 3 years to get #3, we'd be in nursing homes by the time #5 came out, so maybe it is for the best?

    I just googled the Circle trilogy, I hadn't even heard of it! And I really want to read The Kiss of Deception, it sounds really good! Great list!

    1. There were supposed to be 5, but apparently not now. I'm just wondering how she's going to end everything! I have a feeling heartbreak is in my future for that book. AND YOU HADN'T HEARD OF IT?! OMG READ IT SHANNON PLEASE. Also read TKoD too. :)

  4. I really need to read The Kiss of Deception. I've heard so many wonderful things! I hope you get the chance to reread these books!

    1. You definitely need to read TKoD!!! :)

  5. Yeah I could never agree more with you about Lola and The Boy Next Door. I love Cricket :)

  6. I need to read Angelfall, I've heard so many great things about it. The Kiss of Deception is on my wishlist but I'm not so great at reading hardbacks so I'm waiting for the paperback next year. There seems to be so much hate for Allegiant. I've only read Divergent and I can't really remember it but I guess I'll probably finish the series eventually, even if it's only to see what all the fuss is about!

    1. You should read Angelfall and TKoD!! Both are so, SO good!! And yeah, honestly I wouldn't recommend it. Depends on it if you can't stand finishing a series.

  7. THE RAVEN CYCLE IS AMAZING!! I don't think it made it onto my list, but that's probably because I've read them so recently.
    Plus there was so many to choose from, some books just didn't make the cut.
    And I want to reread Divergent so bad. I wasn't a huge fan of the third one, but Four: A Divergent Collection made me remember how much I loved the first two. I really want to reread them.
    And I've been meaning to read Angelfall...one of the many books I haven't gotten around to yet.

    1. YES RAVEN CYCLE YES. And I know right? Way too many to name. Although, I'm not a fan of rereading in general so it wasn't that hard for me. And I just don't know if I'd like Divergent now, but I want to find out. ALSO READ ANGELFALL. You won't be disappointed! :)

  8. I'd definitely reread Lola and the Boy Next Door. The magic between Lola and Cricket is phenomenal! I haven't gotten around to reading The Raven Cycle but a lot of people have said fantastic things about it so I'm definitely going to pick it up soon.

    Great list! :)

  9. I still need to read Angelfall and World After. So many people have recommended them to me. I own Angelfall. I guess it's a good sign that you want to re-read it. I should have added The Infernal Devices to my list because I really do want to re-read them someday. Kiss of Deception is still in my tbr pile waiting to be read. Great list!

  11. I CHEATED TOO I MADE MY SERIES COUNT AS ONE BOOK SHHHHH.

    Holly I still haven't finished the Raven Cycle because I am a poop. I promise I'll get to it sometime this month hahaha, but man I LOVED THE FIRST BOOK. I'm so glad I have both sequels though.

    I also have not read Divergent. But I'm probably not going to read it anytime soon :P bleh. Also only read the first book of the Infernal Devices *cue Holly flail and attack*

    BUT YEAH THAT'S IT. I don't know any other books on your list, except maybe Angelfall, Lola, etc. BUT I HAVEN'T READ THEM YET. My TBR is just overflowing it's not even funny.

  14. Finally reading The Raven Cycle - YAY. Big expectations. All fingers and toes are crossed. :)
    I'd love to re-read Of Beast and Beauty and Angelfall myself! I can't believe there's gonna be only 3 books either. D: Was totally not expecting that. And now I'm extremely worried for my ship.

  15. I actually haven't read many of these! The only one I have read is Divergent, and I would love to reread that too. I have the Raven Cycle, Angelfall and a few others on my TBR as well, so I hope to get to them! If I could reread a book, it would be Carrier by Anne Tibbets.

    1. I hope you can read many of these, and oh, I've heard of Carrier! I haven't looked into it too much, so I just GRed it and realized it was a New Adult science fiction book. That makes me way excited, since there aren't enough NA books that aren't contemporary. I need to read this. :)
