Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Need to Revisit

So, this is technically supposed to be a post about books from your childhood or teen years that you want to revisit. But since I've been out of the game for so long, this is mostly just a post about books I need to reread before I can continue with the series, since so many sequels came out while I wasn't around. (I am still a teen, so technically these are from my teen years?) 


Incarnate & Asunder by Jodi Meadows: I'm pretty sure I actually remember enough to read Infinite, but better safe than sorry, right? Besides. I can never have too much Jodi Meadows in my life.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer: I cannot remember a single thing from this book. Seriously. It's pathetic. But I know I really want to continue with the series, so I'll probably be buying this from Book Outlet when I manage to get a decent paycheck.

Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock: This book tugged at my heartstrings. I read the first book as an ARC way back when and patiently (haha, no) waited for the sequel. Of course, that came and went while I was busy with life, and so did the final book! I can't wait to finish this series. But first, I have to remember something about this series beyond "There was someone named Kyle and someone named Jason and also a dead girl named Amy."

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: On top of the fact that I can't remember a single thing, (are you noticing a pattern here? I am) I actually didn't particularly like this book when I first read it. But my tastes have definitely changed and I know that the prose that I disliked before will be a huge high point for me this time around.

Legend by Marie Lu: This is one I actually remember a little more about, but certainly not enough to continue. However, I'm not sure how I'll actually feel about this on my second go-around. I remember the world-building being a little weak the first time I read it, but at the time, that wasn't something I cared about.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: Okay, so technically, I'm not revisiting this since I never read it in the first place. But I do want to check this series out.

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris: This received a lot of mixed reviews, but I absolutely loved it. I could honestly probably read the sequel right now, but I want to make it easier on myself and reread Unraveling to remember all those little details.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: I fell in love with this book, like many others. I never ended up reviewing it, which I think I really need to do. Of course, to do that I have to remember something other than "!!!!!!!!!"

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I have no reason for adding this to the list, but who needs a reason to reread Anna and the French Kiss? I think I probably read this like twice a year.

Have you read most of these? What did you think? What books did you decide on for your TTT? Let me know!

  1. Great list, with some wonderful books in there! I really need to re-visit The Night Circus, Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Anna and the French Kiss! Can't wait to hear what you think of 'Poison Study' - it's probably my favourite Maria V Snyder.

  2. I only read the Lunar Chronicles last year, but I think it's a series I definitely want to reread before Winter comes out! (Especially since it's going to be such a LONG book!)

  3. Ha -- I'm happy to hear that teenagers also get series amnesia because I always assume mine is a result of my age. I had to re-read Hemlock in order to finish that series. I still haven't finished the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. And I read and loved all the Poison Study books years ago but I couldn't tell you what happened. I think the amnesia comes from reading so many books!

  4. Great list! :) I read Scarlet recently, after having read Cinder about three years ago, and I must admit that I forgot more than I'd care to admit. I had trouble with Daughter of Smoke and Bone as well, and haven't ever continued with the series. I don't really know what it was, exactly... Poison Study has been on my TBR pile for a looooong time. And The Night Circus!!!! Ah, I love that book! xD
