Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Need to Reread

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Thoughts on Tomes. If you want to join or find out more information about the weekly themes check out the Goodreads page! Today’s theme was a freebie, so I decided to pick five books that I’ve been meaning to reread.

25203675STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN – Ever since I read Star-Touched Stories, I’ve wanted to revisit the first book in the duology. I absolutely loved A Crown of Wishes, and Roshani Chokshi’s storytelling is completely mesmerizing. I don’t remember much of Star-Touched Queen, but there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll enjoy it alot better the second time around, and I can’t wait to dive back into this world. 

– I finished this feeling like I read an entirely different book than everyone else. Most of the reviews rave about it, and it seems to be a favorite for a lot of people. I’m not sure if my initial dislike is a “it’s me, not you” kind of situation, or if it stems from the fact that this was my beach read while I was on vacation. Regardless, this has always been a book that I’ve felt I needed to reread.

– This is one of those series that I really need to get to one of these days. I read Rebel of the Sands when it was first released, and then never seemed to have time or the interest to pick up the second when it came around. I have all three of theses books sitting prettily on my bookshelf, waiting for the day when I’ll finally make time to read them. However, since I don’t remember much from the first book, I definitely will have to reread it before continuing on with the series. 

23688792THESE VICIOUS MASKS – Again, I read this book when it first came out, but I never continued the series. I don’t think I enjoyed this as much because I had read it immediately after reading Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club, and both books have very similar plots and settings. I really want to reread this before continuing the series, and I’m convinced I’ll like it a lot better the second time.

– I actually DNF’d this, so it’s not that I want to reread this but rather that I want to restart it. I usually devour historical fiction books, especially if they’re based in WWII, but for some reason I just could not get into this at all. Everyone I know that’s read it has really enjoyed it, so I’m hoping the second time I will too.

  1. I reread Deathless earlier this year and I loved it even more the second time, though even on the second read – it’s definitely not an easy beach read. I really want to reread Star-Touched Queen (and Crown of Wishes too) as well, I just adore the world so much 💕
