Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic is all about the books I loved but will probably never re-read. Now, this was a real tough one for me as I’m more of a “I want to re-read all my favorite books and I’ll proclaim my good intentions forever but probably never re-read anyway” kind of girl. If I loved a book, I’ll automatically want to re-read. Even if I may never have the time or be in the right mood again, I’ll still want to re-read. But for the sake of this list, I dug deep and tried to be brutally honest with myself and came up with a few books I’ll probably never re-read. (but hey, never say never!):
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I adored The Lord of the Rings, it’s one of my favorites. But it also took me ages to read and I’d have to admit I’d be more likely to marathon the movies again than to re-read.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
Though I loved these when I read them and I still love this world, I don’t think I’d re-read The Mortal Instruments. The first 3 books might just not be my thing anymore and the last 3 books were honestly a hassle to get through the first time. I’ll just stick to The Infernal Devices and The Dark Artifices.
The Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier
Loved these when I first read them, but I just don’t think they’d still be my thing today. So I probably would not re-read.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I loved the first book but it took me almost a month to finish. I don’t want to spend another month on a re-read when I could just watch the show.
The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
I don’t know, I loved these books but I just don’t feel like they require a re-read… I am excited for the movie though.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Same as The Darkest Minds. Loved this book, but I’m just not feeling the need for a re-read.
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I honestly don’t think I can handle a re-read. The first read already broke me into so many pieces…
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Same as All The Bright Places. I can’t spend another re-read ugly crying from beginning to end. I just can’t.
