Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today is all about those books we could re-read forever. I don’t re-read a lot (though it’s my goal to do this more), but when I do re-read, I usually go for one of these two categories:
- The feel-good contemporary romances. The books that make me smile. The books that make me swoon. The books that make me feel good and always manage to cheer me up, no matter what.
- The epic fantasy worlds I adore. For when I really want to escape reality and just live in another world for a while. For when I want to help fight dragons, rebel against evil overlords, go on dangerous heists or save the world, all from the safety and comfort of my couch.
Taking both categories into account, these are the books you’ll most likely find me re-reading:
>> The Feel-Good Contemporary Romances <<
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
It’s no secret that Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is my go-to feel-good book. It never fails to make me smile and as such I will continue to re-read as much as I can. Will I get one more re-read in before I see the movie (Probably yes, since it’s only releasing in June here in Belgium *cries*)
These Stephanie Perkins books
These are pure romantic fluff and sometimes I just crave a good fluffy romance. It also help that these books have such gorgeous settings that fill me with Wanderlust.
These Morgan Matson books
More romantic fluff, except these books also delve into some deeper issues. Either way, I adore them and can re-read forever.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
When I finished this book the first time, I immediately went back to page one and started all over again. And then I did it a third time. I think it’s time I go back in for my fourth re-read.
>> The Epic Fantasy Worlds I Adore <<
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
How could this not be on this list? It’s my favorite fantasy world of all time.
The Red Winter trilogy by Annette Marie
I adore this fantasy world, filled with Japanese mythological creatures such as yokai and kami, and my personal favorite: kitsunes <3
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
A sci-fi take on classic fairytales, with amazing characters, adorable romances and squad goals to end all squad goals.
The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
Greek mythology! I mean seriously, this series is based on Greek mythology. That says it all. It’s another must on my re-read list.
The Grisha World by Leigh Bardugo
This world. These characters. Nikolai. Nina. I love you all.
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
This series is what got me back into fantasy after a long reading slump and what eventually got me to start my book blog, so it’ll always have a special place in my heart. I am not always 100% content with the way things have played out, how certain characters have been treated or how Sarah writes her romance, but overall I can’t help it. I’ll re-read this forever and ever and ever.
