Recently it has really felt like everyone is reading books I’ve already read and (for the most part) loved which basically results in me sitting there and reading all of the reading updates going ‘I really want to read that book again!’ – which is exactly how this post idea was born! Don’t you just love when that happens?! Let’s not ramble on too much and instead get right into this post!

The Lunar Chronicles
There is actually currently a group read going on over on Goodreads of people reading the series and whenever I see one of the reading updates I immediately want to pick up my copies of the books and join everyone in reading them. But. I have too many other books I want/need to read first and I can’t really justify re-reading a beloved series at the moment which makes me really sad, actually. I do really love this series and all of its characters and even though I just finished the series last year I’m definitely ready for that re-read sometime soon!
The Raven Cycle
With the recent news about Syfy picking up this series for a tv show, The Raven Cycle has definitely been talked about more again and I’m just once again really want to jump back into this world and be reunited with these characters! But I also want to mark up my copies with all of the tabs, highlighted passages and notes! I did do some tabbing, but nothing compared to what I do these days! I might make it my mission to re-read all of my favorite books so I can mark them all up and have the opportunity to look back on them down the line and see exactly what I loved about them!
The Shadowhunter Chronicles
I’ve actually already started my re-read of these books (this includes The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and The Dark Artifices) but I haven’t really made any progress since I finished Clockwork Angel because other books had to be read and it seems like things might continue that way for the next few months too! But I definitely want to continue on my re-read of this and spend so much more time with all of these characters and then finally read (or listen to) both novella bind-ups!
Actually, earlier I randomly decided to take a look at City Of Ashes and City Of Glass and re-read some of my highlighted passages and I was so happy to be able to take a look at why I had marked those scenes! I can’t wait until all of my Cassandra Clare books are all marked up like that!
A Court Of Mist And Fury
You might be wondering why on earth I would want to re-read this book already seeing how I just finished a re-read at the beginning of May but I just miss the awesomeness that is ACOMAF? I love that book with everything I have and it might have stolen the #1 spot from Clockwork Princess as favorite book. Yep, it’s that serious. Obviously, I can’t get enough of it, right? I mean, we all know how much I talk about Clockwork Princess in this blog!
If you read my most recent haul, you know that I just got a copy of Prodigy and that I plan on re-reading the trilogy once I own all the books and I am honestly excited but also a bit scared about re-reading this trilogy? Because what if I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to? I don’t want to dampen my previous reading experience with negative feelings! But I also want to get familiar with Marie Lu’s writing again in preparation for the release of Batman: Nightwalker (I don’t even really care about Batman but it’s Marie Lu, so obviously I want to read it!).
Do you guys ever worry about not enjoying a favorite book anymore once you re-read it? How do you go about that fear? Please share some tips with me!
Six Of Crows Duology
Can you believe I actually almost forgot to include this series on my list??? What is wrong with me?! This has been on my mind so much these past few days because people on my Goodreads timeline are reading it and sharing all of their feelings and I want to do it too! It hasn’t even been a full year since I read this book and I know that I don’t want to relive some of the moments from it, but I do really miss this gang of characters almost more than any other cast of characters (excluding the Inner Circle – they’ve stolen my heart for good)!
How about you?
