Books I Re-Read

I like a lot of bloggers tend to have less time than I used to for rereading, I mean there's review copies and then so many SHINY NEW BOOKS! But, there are some I manage to reread again and again. Sometimes, if I'm in a reading slump or stressed and kind of sad, I just like to pick up an old favorite and sink into its comforting embrace(pages). These are a few of the ones I reread the most.

The series I re-read the most:


It might be surprising because I don't honestly talk about Hunger Games very often, which is strange because they were the first YA books I read and the first trilogy that broke my heart, and around the time Mockingjay came out I was reading and rereading these over and over again.

The series I wish I could re-read all the time:

The series that's just as magical the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, millionth time:

The Christmas One:
The Music One:
The Best Fantasy One:

The One That Was My Favorite Book In 3rd Grade:
The Sad One that I am currently re-reading:

Tell me, what books do you love to re-read!???? 


  1. My favorite book to re-read (besides Harry Potter, of course) is Jellicoe Road, because I always find something new to love about it. And I seriously need to re-read it asap, just because I mentioned it now. It's such an amazing book. I try to re-read at least a few books every year, mostly because I love to revisit my favorites again and again.. :)

    1. I NEED to read Jellicoe Road! I know right, there's nothing quite like rereading an old favorite, is there?
      I plan to try and start rereading Harry Potter every Christmas because it just makes everything feel magical. =)

    2. Oh my god, YES! You must, must read Jellicoe Road. I promise you it's worth it. Oh, and re-reading HP every Christmas sounds like a wonderful idea, it's very possible I might join in on that.. :D

    3. You should! We could start a whole thing on our blogs, a giant HP reread in December! =)

  2. I recently reread Bridge to Terabithia. So incredibly sad. I have never reread The Hunger Games, but I should. Love that series. There are just too many books on my TBR to allow for rereads.

    1. I'm still crying after rereading it! But, it's one of the best books I've ever read and I love it so so much. =)

      And I know! It's so hard to find time to reread, I can only manage stand alones for the most part, there's no time to binge reread a full series! =)

  3. Love this post!! I re-read the entire Harry Potter series four times :P My parents were like "JILLIAN STOP IT, ARE YOU NOT TIRED OF HARRY POTTER." But the truth is, the story is never tiring to re-visit over and over again. I've heard a lot about Dash and Lily, and gosh I want to read it, but I'm a little broke at the moment. One day, I will get to that one. I heard it was a really light book to read, and I'm sort of in a mood to read something that isn't too overwhelming.

    I love Percy Jackson! I think it's time for me to read the series again; it's been 4 years now :P Great post, Shay!!!

    1. Haha. You can NEVER be tired of Harry Potter! It is a really fun light book, Dash and Lily is just awesome.

      I need to reread Percy too! It's been WAY TOO LONG!!!!!! =)

  4. You had me at The Hunger Games. I have read them 9 times, but I need to go through a tenth re-read for Mockingjay, no question! I think the only other books I have re-read were Divergent and Insurgent, and that was when Allegiant was coming out and now... I kind of am afraid that re-reading before a series ending is a jinx ;)

    1. I haven't re-read them since the first movie came out! I fail!!!!!! You've definitely got me beat when it comes to Hunger Games. ;)

      Haha. I can see why you would think that after Allegiant. =(
