Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want To Re-Read
(Besides Harry Potter, because really, who doesn't want to re-read that all the time?) 

1. Noughts and Crosses (Nought and Crosses #1) by Malorie Blackman
This is probably one of the most underrated YA series ever, and I don't understand why! I read Noughts & Crosses in Year 7 and the story has stuck with me forever. It's a moving piece on discrimination, but also a heartbreaking love story. I really want to revisit it.

2. The Host (The Host #1) by Stephanie Meyer
I read The Host this year and already I want to read it again. I gave it five stars (review here), because I think it's such a worthwhile and thought-provoking read.

3. Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity #1) by Elizabeth Wein
A recent read as well (2012), but Code Name Verity has such a beautiful meaning with a bitter sweet ending. The characters were gorgeous and I want to read it before I get the companion novel.

4. Will Grayson Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green
Part of my top five, I think it's about time for my annual re-read.

5. The Bone Season (The Bone Season #1) by Samantha Shannon
The sequel to this is about to be released, and I am so excited. I didn't particularly love this one but I want to re-read it to see if I've missed anything and to jog my memory.

6. Deathless (Deathless #1) Catherynne M. Valente
Valente is a beautiful writer and its translate perfectly in Deathless, mixing both fantasy and mythical elements. This is an adult read but I just loved it.

7. Unearthly Series by Cynthia Hand
I finished this series this year, but because there was such a large gap between reading Unearthly and Hallowed I couldn't really make sense of everything in the last novel - Boundless.

8. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Johnathon Safran Foer
I loved every moment of this and have been wanting to buy this ever since finishing it - still have yet to though. Oscar is such a loveable boy and his journey is so moving.

9. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
One of my favourite classics - I still have yet to re-read this despite enjoying it in high school.

10. The Shifting Fog by Kate Morton
Kate Morton is the ultimate and her genius-ness translates into everything she's written, including The Shifting Fog. It was such a thrilling and engaging read!

What Do You Want To Re-Read?


  1. Love your list! I'll definitely be adding Noughts and Crosses to my TBR pile, you've intrigued me :)
    Is it weird that I'm in the exact position as you for the Unearthly series? I have yet to read Boundless but it's been a few months since I finished #2. I'm just to lazy to finish the series and I have the worst memory so it looks like I might have to reread the first two :(

    Here is my re-read list!:

    1. Thanks for popping by! Nights and Crosses is amazing and I was so close to bursting into tears from it :( Yeah I know, I don't know if it was the release date or not but I was sort of just stuck. It's still a really great series though.

      I shall check out your post!

  2. I tried reading The Host once, sadly I just couldn't get through it. It felt like Twilight, with aliens. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the movie any better either. Code Name Verity is one I've been meaning to read for ages, thanks for reminding me. Just added to my Goodreads. I really enjoyed the Unearthly series. It was pretty refreshing for an angel themed book. Great choices Trace, I haven't heard of quite a few of these and going to check them out <3

    1. Really? I loved every moment of it, especially the ending. I've heard the movie was totally different and a terrible adaptation of it, so I've steered clear. Code Name Verity is amazing, I think you'll really like it - such a good story about friends and powerful females. And exactly right about Unearthly, it was different and memorable. Thanks for popping by! xx
