Hi guys! I saw a similar post at The Fictional Journal, and it inspired me to do a post like it.
There are always those books that you wish you could read for the first time again. They might be so you can immerse yourself in the drama, solve the mystery, or get shocked by the thriller, but no matter what genre you prefer, you have probably encountered a book like this.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you most likely have figured out that I’m a big Agatha Christie fan. This book is amazing, and I would love to be able to meet Monsieur Poirot and Captain Hastings for the first time again.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Anne has such a rambunctious personality, and it would be wonderful to be able to meet her again for the first time. Reading it for the first time was super fun, and it had me laughing throughout the whole book.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
The Chronicles of Narnia has amazing characters and world building, and I would love to be captured in the wonder of it all again.
Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon
I don’t know why I liked this book so much, but I had a mix of emotions throughout the whole book. It would be great to explore the London alleys and figure out the mystery with Olivia again.
In Another Time by Caroline Leech
This book was so good! I actually reread it right after I read it. It had lovable characters, and it introduced me to the concept of lumberjills. It also showcased other aspects of work other than fighting or nursing during the second world war.
Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson
I loved Kazimyrah (the main character) and Jase (the other main character). This book was enthralling, and I loved the world building and traditions as well as the characters and plot. There was a lot of mystery and suspense that I enjoyed. I barely took a break from reading it, even though it was long.
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards
This book was really interesting. I’ve never read a book like it, and it kept me guessing the whole time.
The Fever Code by James Dashner
Out of all of the Maze Runner books, this one startled me the most. I would love to read the other books in the Maze Runner series for the first time too, but this one held all of the answers and had a really surprising finish.
Sherwood by Meagan Spooner
I loved Sherwood. I’m really picky with my retellings, but I enjoyed this version of Robin Hood, especially because she breaks the cultural boundaries.
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
I’ll Give You the Sun was an amazing, emotional journey about two twins as they grow up and apart at times. I really enjoyed this book, and it was very realistic and I could relate to all of the characters at times.
Oasis by Katya De Becerra
Oasis shocked me. It was really confusing at times, and I was struggling to figure it out, which was really enjoyable. I only realized the answer in the last few pages.
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai
This book was full of amazing poetry that articulated the struggles of Vietnamese immigrants in a new way.
