I’m bound and determined to get back on track with my reading this year and I feel like I’m already doing a really great job. It’s the first week of February and I’ve already read 13 books and have reviewed almost all of them. Way better than last year. So to continue my endeavor of reading like a boss in 2020, I’ve realized there’s so many books I want to reread. It’s been ages since I’ve read most of these books and I know how much I loved them when I first read them, I’m ready to revisit that love and excitement. So, in no particular order, here are the top six books I want to reread this year.
I know it hasn’t been THAT long since I read this book, I read it in March of 2019, but I loved it so much and it might even have been my favorite book I read in 2019. I read Where the Crawdads Sing cover to cover during a flight and as soon as I finished, I wanted to start reading it again. I had seen some hype around this book but I didn’t think it would actually live up to the hype but it totally did. The plot, writing, and characters are stunning. I’m amazed by the writing especially. This is one of the best written books I’ve read in years and I recommend it to everyone.
According to GoodReads, I read The Winner’s Curse in early 2014. I don’t remember a lot about it but I do know I loved it so much and even though I never got around to reading the sequels, I still pre-ordered them and kept the whole series in my massive unhaul of over 1,000 books in 2018. I’m really looking forward to revisit this story and rediscover the characters.
Y’all know there had to be at least one CoHo book on this list. I’ve actually already read Ugly Love twice, once in 2015 and once in 2016. That being said, I honesty don’t remember a lot of details about this book. I obviously loved it and I still stay it’s one of my top favorite CoHo books but I 100% need to reread Ugly Love asap and refresh my memory.
I read Verity in 2018 and it was honestly a highlight of my year. I wasn’t reading much that year, I was having a hard time in life, but I preordered this book, as I do all CoHo books, and halfheartedly started it, not really feeling like reading. I loved it right away and is to this day, the one book I’ve binge read and stayed up all night to read in the last two or three years. This book pulled me out of my funk for a night and it was such a fantastic feeling. I’m sure it won’t be the exact same experience the second time around, knowing how the plot goes, but I look forward to picking this book up again and hopefully feeling as excited about it as I did the first time.
I read this book a long time ago, in 2014, but it remains one of my all time favorites and I still recommend it to people. It’s a well loved and familiar favorite among the Young Adult book crowd but Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is so beautiful, it transcends genres. I loved it so much when I read it but I have a feeling it’ll mean even more to me now than it did back in 2014.
I know there’s so many CoHo books on this short list but I can’t help it, she’s my favorite author! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve read Too Late. I read it in 2016 and it was insane, wild, and an incredible ride while reading. It’s without a doubt one of my favorite books and I’m surprised I haven’t reread it yet. I’m expecting to see more of the problematic side of this characters, fully realize how complex this story is, than I did when I first read it but I’m ready to write a whole new review for this book and get back on the wild ride that is Too Late.
