Hope y’all are having a great start to the year. 2018 is the year of re-reads! Says who? Says every booknerd. We all secretly wish to re-reads our favorites, but then the ever ending list of new books makes rereading a tad bit difficult. One of my reading goals for 2018 is to reread 10 of my favorite books.
So here’s what I’ve chosen for Re-Readathon 2018.
1.Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
Eleanor & Park is my favorite Rainbow Rowell book. I adore it no end. Started the Re-Readathon 2018 by devouring this fluffy YA. A fuzzy yet realistic love story, this one has all the feels.
2. The Lover’s Dictionary – David Levithan
Planning to start the month of love, February with this beautiful book. It is written in the form of definitions. I loved it when I first read it and now would be the perfect time to revive the love for words.
3. Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli
Super excited to read the latest book by Becky Albertalli – The Upside of Unrequited. But before that I need to delve into this gem. It is an LGBT YA book. The chemistry and the love story got my heart melting the first time and I want to experience that magic again.
PS – The movie adaptation is releasing this summer, and guess who’s super excited??
4. Wonder – R.J Palacio
A heartwarming story about Auggie, a boy with facial deformity, his struggles in school, his friends and their #friendshipgoals. If you want to read something deep but not preachy, that’ll remain in your heart forever, Wonder is what you should pick up.
5. When We Collided – Emery Lord
You’re never too old for a love story. I read it in 2016 and loved it with all my heart. It’s a beautiful story of Jonah and Vivi that depicts how two broken people who when collide take the universe by storm. The realistic characters, beautiful relationships, and YA feels on point, When We Collided makes the perfect summer read.
6. And the Mountains Echoed – Khaled Hosseini
Do I need to say anything by Khaled Hosseini is a gem? It has been close to 3 years since I last read any of his works. Re-Readathon 2018 is the perfect time to soak my heart and soul in his beautiful words. It is a beautiful historical fiction about two siblings and their ultimate bond.
7. I’ll give you the Sun – Jandy Nelson
It’s been so long since I read this and ever since I’ve only heard people rave their love about this epic YA. ‘I’ll give you the Sun’ will happen in Re-Readathon 2018. It is the story of two siblings, their life, struggles, and secrets. Told in alternate voices, it deserves all the praise.
8. 13 Reasons Why – Jay Asher
I read ‘13 Reasons Why’ way before it became a TV show. Have heard mixed things about the TV show though. So I thought it’ll be a good idea to give this one a re-read in 2018. It is about mental health, suicide, and grief. So if you’re looking for a sad YA, I totally recommend this.
9. Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami
I want to get back to Murakami phase, but have been skeptical. The best way, I thought, is to re-read an old favorite. If you also want to start reading Murakami, I highly recommend Norwegian Wood. It is a love story with classic Murakami touch. Best part, it doesn’t go above your head.
10. Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng
Celeste Ng does historical fiction so good. This one is heartbreaking and heavy, but so worth it. Set in 1970s this one is about a Chinese American family living in Ohio. The daughter’s body is found in the nearby lake and the story unfolds.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these books. Also would love to know what your favorite books are that you’d love to re-read in 2018!
