Rereads for 2016

Hey guys! I wanted to talk about the books I plan on rereading this year. I honestly haven’t reread a book in so, so long! I only reread one book last year and I really want to reread some books I haven’t picked up in years. So here are the books I hope to reread this year:

Vanish and Hidden by Sophie Jordan.

These are the second and third books in the Firelight trilogy and I loved this trilogy so much when I read it back in high school, and since I reread the first book, Firelight, last year, I figured that I have to finish rereading the other two. It’s a story about people who can turn into dragons and how one family leaves the comfort of their home to live away from them – and the dangers that ensue afterward.

The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer.

As one of my favorite books of all time, you’d think I’d have reread it more frequently, but I’ve actually have only read it twice, and that was a long time ago. So I figured I’d reread it and see if I love it as much as I did as a young teen or if my tastes have changed. But I just remember loving the clone aspect of it and of the mystery surrounding the main character, Matteo. Here’s hoping it’s just as awesome as the first time.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

I read this book back in my early teen years and absolutely loved it. My dad wouldn’t let me read it at first because of the sexual content, but really? Not the worst thing I’ve read in terms of sex, let me tell you – even at that age. So when I read it, I fell in love with the characters and the story and how it just broke my heart and made me swell with love. I also saw the movie adaptation and thought that it was pretty faithful to the book, which I was glad for. So I definitely want to reread this and see if I like it just as much as back then.

Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah.

I read this for a school project my freshman year of high school. We got to choose whatever book we wanted, and I had had this one for years, untouched and unread, so I decided to read it. And oh. My. God. This one just rips your heart out and tears it into a million pieces. I remember it making me angry, sad, excited. So many emotions from one story; and I think it’s partly because it’s a true story. I wonder if I’ll feel the same emotions on the second read through?

A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb.

I read this as my last summer reading I’d ever had to do, and I’m so glad this was on the list. Usually the books on the lists are boring and I’d never read them (literally this was the ONE YEAR I actually completed my summer reading 100%), but this book was just amazing. I loved the story of a ghost woman who was just trying to find her place, and of a ghost man who had taken up residence in someone, and how the two fall in love and more. It’s just a beautiful story and I want to reread it to see if I still think that it is.

And that’s all I have planned for rereading this year. I think that it’ll be good to get back into some of my old favorites because I loved them years ago, why wouldn’t I now?

Are you planning on rereading any books this year? Let me know!
