Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme officiated in November 2013 and is still going strong! Join the group to become a T5W-er and check out the topics for the current month!
So, it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. At least a couple of months. I would have participated last week, seeing as it was another easy one, but I forgot. But it’s a new week and this is actually the one I’ve been looking forward to all month, anyway.
Books that I want to re-read.
I have had my top five books ready for this week since the themes for November were revealed. Mostly because these are books that I’ve been planning on re-reading anyway, so there wasn’t much thought necessary to be put into this.
I’ll just jump right in. In no particular order.
*Side note: most of these are part of a series or trilogy.
5. Every single Sarah Dessen book.
Those aren’t even all of them, but you get the idea. I’ve actually been planning on a re-read of her books for awhile now for next year (probably around summertime since they’re such perfect summer reads), but I mostly just want to re-read Just Listen and This Lullaby again because those are my favorites. Also, confession: I’ve never made the connection that her books are connected in some way as I’ve seen others say they are. I don’t know if it’s because my memory sucks, or it just never clicked. But I can’t wait to read them all again; it’s been too long.
4. Daughter of Smoke & Bone
I own all three of the books, but I’ve only read the first one for some reason, and it’s been so long (at least a year, maybe two, I don’t know), that I’ve forgotten what happened to continue on with the rest of the trilogy. Hoping to get back to this sometime next year, as well.
3. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy
I was almost finished with this trilogy. I read the first one, loved it, and then when I spent the summer with a friend in Spokane Valley back in 2007, we were bored, so we decided to go to his local library and checkout some books. Obviously, I checked out Rebel Angels to continue the series, and then I bought The Sweet Far Thing at some point after I came home and made it halfway, maybe a little past, before I bookmarked it with the paperclip I was using and put it down only to never pick it up again. I remember loving the stories as I read them, and as much as I wanted to pick up that third book, I couldn’t remember what I read, so I’m just going to re-read the whole series again. Since I don’t own Rebel Angels, I’m going to have to order it online somewhere. Whoever has it cheaper.
2. The Blue Bloods Series
This was part of my YA-vampire obsession after Twilight. A lot better, in my opinion, even thought I had no idea how you pronounced Schuyler’s name until someone used the nickname ‘Sky.’ I think that was towards the end of the first book, I don’t remember, but I felt stupid for awhile, there. I made it to the halfway point of Misguided Angel, but looking at the photo above, apparently I skipped over Keys to the Repository, but in my defense, it wasn’t out when I bought MA, and if I remember correctly, I don’t think it’s actually part of the series, but more like a companion to it. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. My main focus is going to be buying the last three books, anyway.
- The Robert Langdon Series
It’s been awhile since I’ve read the Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, but I’ve loved Robert Langdon from the beginning. I don’t know what it is about him, but I’m pretty sure that I developed a serious crush on this character, and the fact that he’s portrayed by Tom Hanks in the films is just icing on the cake for me. I don’t know when I’ll get to these again, but I hope it’s soon because I absolutely love Dan Brown’s writing.
And there it is. All the books that I want to re-read.
What made your list?
