Some will say "life's too short to reread books!" and others will say "reread your favourite books and relive the memories!".
To be honest, I'm all for rereading books. Here's my list of books that are worth a reread!
1. Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling
Is ANYONE surprised by this? I think not. I don't think anyone can get tired of rereading the HP books, simply because reliving this magical story is better every time. Rowling's characters will forever be part of my life, and probably part of millions of other people too.
2. Lola and the Boy Next Door, by Stephanie Perkins
Okay, so Lola is my favourite in the trilogy, although I always tell people that Anna is my favourite contemporary book. I know that it makes absolutely no sense, but it kind of does. This second book features a more unique character who lives in her home city and I found that it dealt with way more issues than the first one. And because I can't afford (time wise) to reread all three books, this one is the one!
3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
A TIMELESS book that I will forever recommend. Written in letter form, it felt so personal and more moving. The characters are not perfect at all, and that's how a reader can see himself in these characters. Nothing was romanticized and honestly all the struggles of being a teenager growing up were found in this book. The movie was amazingly done as well, which makes me really happy, because if they had ruined a masterpiece like this I would've fumed.
4. Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James
Ok ok, calm down. You're probably thinking that I'm a creep, but hear me out. I know that many disliked this book, and it's totally normal. However, this book is perfect to introduce readers to not only the world of adult fiction, but also to the world of fanfiction. It did deal with rather sexual topics, but as long as the reader is mature enough to handle it, I think that this book is worth a reread, or a read. No, the writing style wasn't the best and no, the characters weren't that clever, but it was incredibly entertaining. This book also explores how casual sex is popularized, which is something that should be talked about more in the media.
5. Percy Jackson, by Rick Riordan
Eek! These have a place in my heart as well. I've been trying to find time to reread them, but honestly, I have NO time. I loved these books for the same reason as I loved the Harry Potter books, and it was simply the magical journey, touching characters and witty writing. If I could reread these books without knowing about anything and reliving it again, I totally would!
So here were my top 5 books that I would reread. Next up is a top 5 books I would NOT reread! Are you ready for some serious shade? Just kidding... I hope you enjoyed this one and I hope that I inspired you to reread some of your favourites!
