Books I Want To Revisit



Today's post is inspired by one I saw earlier in the week over on Emma's fabulous blog. Despite having a rather ridiculous 'to be read' pile, there are still books I want to re-read. Sometimes I like doing this when I can't decide what to read next, or if I feel like I need a break from a particular genre. Ironically, most of the ones below are young adult fiction. Anyway, here's some books I want to read again..

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer-After reading Off The Page a couple of weeks ago I really want to read the first book in this series again. The ideas of characters within stories interacting with people in the real world, and the idea of book characters being like actors in a play really appealed to me. 

Yes Please by Amy Poehler-When things are a bit 'meh' I always like to read something entertaining and that I know will make me laugh. Amy Poehler's book is guaranteed to do just that. I also read it quite fast initially so I'd like to take my time reading it again. 

Paper Towns by John Green-Given the movie is coming out next month it's the perfect time to revisit this one. I actually didn't enjoy this as much as some of John Green's other books when I first read it. Maybe I was just in an off mood reading it because I know heaps of people love it. Either way, I'm willing to give it another go.

Wildwood by Colin Meloy-This series is like Famous Five mixed with the fantasy of the Narnia series. There's magic, talking animals, a political uprising of sorts and royalty. It's really unlike any other children's book that I have read or can think of. Even adults would enjoy these books too. I loved the gorgeous illustrations throughout and I may have to add this to my collection at some point.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell-Like Paper Towns, I liked this on the first read but didn't love it. I think because I held Eleanor & Park, also by Rowell in such high esteem that this was going to be really toughly judged by me. Is anyone else like that with books by authors they love? Again though I know this book is really popular so I want to give it another chance before the spin-off book about Simon Snow is released later in the year.
