Books I Want To Re-Read

Posted in Books

As a bookworm, I never used to see the point in re-reading books.   Why re-read a book when there are SO many more books to read for the first time?!  However, I’ve recently found myself re-reading some books that I read years ago, just to see if I still felt the same after I finished it.   Would I enjoy it again?  Would I suddenly hate it?  Here are three books that I want to re-read very soon.

Books I Want to Re Read - Famous in Japan

Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne / The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky / Asking For It By Louise O’Neill

The book that started my re-reading idea is Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne.  The second book in the “Normal” series, How Hard Can Love Be?, is published on 01 February and I just can’t wait that long.  I’ve been relentlessly checking Waterstones and Amazon to see if the publication date has changed, or whether I could sneakily get my hands on it a few days (read: weeks) earlier.  I can’t.  *sobs violently* I will have to be patient and wait until 01 February, even though I really don’t want to. *stamps feet impatiently*  I’m hoping that by re-reading the first book in the series, I will be able to survive for a few more weeks.

The classic book that spawned a million blog names… (I jest, I jest!).  I remember feeling ALL the feels the first time I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  It is definitely one of my favourite books that I have ever read.  I read ‘Perks’ at a time when I really needed to read it, if that makes sense.  I would love to see how I feel after reading it again now I am a lot happier and in a much better place.

And now for a book that isn’t so nice; Asking For It by Louise O’Neill.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean that this book is terrible as in badly written, because it isn’t.  It is terrible as it is about a young girl in modern day Ireland who is raped, and the resulting aftermath.   It is not an easy read.  When I originally read it last year, I was in such a state of shock after finishing it I couldn’t bring myself to review it.  I do want to talk about it though, so I hopefully by re-reading it so I can bring you the best review I can.

Do you have any books that you want to re-read?
