I’m always torn whether to read new books or reread my old favorites. I own so many books that I’ve never read but want to relive my favorite stories and compare how my opinions have changed over time. This month, I’m solving that problem.
For the month of July, I’m exclusively rereading my old favorites, and here are the books I’ll be reading.
The Selection by Kiera Cass // There’s nothing I love more than a good princess story, and when I first read this series several years ago, I was entranced. The characters and tangled-up romances sucked me into the story, and I can’t wait to see if the plot has the same effect.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green // Oh boy, here come the tears. I’m not a crier, but this book is the only book to date that has ever made me cry. The first time I read it, I borrowed the book from a friend at noon and was finished with it by four that same day. The Fault in Our Stars is still one of my favorite books of all time and I’m excited to be revisiting this story.
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan // Full disclosure: I’m rereading The Lost Hero because I own the rest of the Heroes of Olympus series, but have only read the first installment. I don’t remember what happened because it was so long ago, so I hope rereading this book will inspire me to finally finish the series.
Legend by Marie Lu // The same applies here: I read the first book, bought the second, and by the time I was ready to read the second, I’d forgotten what happened.
Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi // With the release of this series’ fourth installment Restore Me, I want to brush up on how the series started so I can continue reading all the books.
Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard // I found a 99 cent copy of this book at Goodwill a few weeks ago and couldn’t resist. Pretty Little Liars was my middle school obsession and I never did finish reading all the books, so maybe this is the start of a middle school reading revival for me.
Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter // Would it even be a book-related post if I didn’t mention Ally Carter? I started rereading the Gallagher Girls series a few months ago, which ties in perfectly to my month of rereads. I also remember this book being one of my favorites in the series, so that’s a plus.
What’s on your July TBR? Have you read any of these books before?
