For May, we’ve been given free reign to do previous topics, and I am so excited! I just started participating in T5W last year, so I have tons of topics I can use. But it’s also so hard because there are so many good ones.
This week, the topic I chose comes from November 2016.
November 23: Books I Want to Re-Read
–Though it seems like we are all constantly chasing the next upcoming release, let’s take a trip down memory lane and talk about some books that we’d like to re-visit.
There are a lot of books I really want to re-read, but these were the first 5 that came to mind that I think about re-reading most often. (I also limited myself to books I’ve only read once already, so no counting Harry Potter and such.)
In no particular order…
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell– I want to re-read it, but I honestly just can’t right now. Maybe in a happier future, though.
The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick– I loved this book and I can not wait to re-read it a few times in different orders!
The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher– Ok, this is cheating because it’s more than one book, but I really need and want to re-read these so I can catch up on the last two that have been released, finally.
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer-Bradley– I read this several years ago and really loved it, but it’s going to be a while before I re-read it because it’s pretty chunky (over 800 pages). As a side note, the mini-series is freaking awesome, too.
If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio– This. BOOK! It was so freaking good that if I’d had a physical copy the first time I read it (I won an audiobook copy originally), I would have immediately started it again. But it took me months to get a physical copy, so I’ve had to wait. I really might re-read it this year, though. (I reviewed it last year, if you want to read my thoughts.)
