Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
I feel repetitive when I say that rereading is something I struggle with as a whole. Yes, I’d love to go back and revisit Graceling yet again, but deep down I know that the magic of that first read will be missing. It’ll be a… stale joy, at least for me. Which, isn’t a bad thing per se, just… again, the magic of discovering a story for the first time… nothing will compare.
So, this weeks’ subject is kind of perfect, considering I have been in not only a slump, but a nostalgic mood as of late. Blame in on the season change that is upcoming, but… I’m in a cozy-up-by-the-fire-with-some-tea-and-an-old-favorite kind of mood. It’s a vibe.
Even though this weather is saying otherwise *cough cough 107 degrees cough cough* .
Now, this was already a TTT topic last year that I’ve done, so I won’t being making any repeats here? Or at least I’ll try, no promises.
Books I can see myself re-reading SOON
Reviews: Middlegame | The Bone Witch | The Heart Forger | The Shadowglass | Alice
I say I’m in a slump… and then I list these books. Minus Alice, these books messed me up. I was emotionally compromised in the BEST OF WAYS.
However, if I look back on this year as a whole so far, these books have been the ones I’ve not only talked about the most, but have seriously considered coming back to very soon.
Random favorites that should get a re-read soon
Reviews: Gods of Jade and Shadow | Shadow of the Fox |
A Star Touched Queen | Between the Water and the Woods | Menagerie
As for these books…. to be honest I needed five books, went on my kindle/bookshelf and said huh. I actually miss these.
Most of these were fun, non heavy books *cough cough menagerie DOES NOT COUNT GEEZ* but I can definitely see myself using these five to pull me out of the illusive slump that I refuse to acknowledge is happening right now.
