2018, a Year of Re-Reads

So I've mentioned it before that I'm re-reading the Ghost Bird series by C.L. Stone. Earlier this year I also re-read Twilight. Now I've been thinking about it, and there are actually a few books/series I aim to re-read soon--so maybe I should set on making 2018 the year for this, yes? So I thought I'd share these books/series with y'all!

Ghost Bird by C.L. Stone

Introductions (The Ghost Bird, #1)

The 12th (yes, 12th) book in this series releases on the 28th of this month and I am SO EXCITED. Which you can probably tell by the fact that I've been re-reading a majority of this series over the past week. I fully read books 1-5, read my favorite parts of books 6-9, and I'm almost done with a full re-read of book 10 now. Then it'll be book 11. Then...well, I'll have to impatiently wait for book 12 to actually release. I'm so into these characters, y'all. Re-reading was such a good decision. (Oh, and I have a giveaway for the first book in this series happening RIGHT NOW. It's open internationally, so be sure to check it out and enter!)

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

I re-read the first three books in this series earlier this year. I MAY do a Breaking Dawn re-read sometime, but I'm not exactly jumping to do it. I made it to my favorite book in the series, Eclipse, so I'm not too worried. And I got so much fanfic fuel.

Night World by L.J. Smith

Night World

I snagged all nine of the special hardcover editions for this series, so I've got a super strong urge to wade my way through this series again. I love the premise, and I love the characters. I'm so looking forward to giving these favorites another read...probably this summer the near future. Plus, they're not really long or anything, so they'll be quick reads. It's perfect, tbh.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella Enchanted

I read Ella Enchanted...goodness, I think it was back in 6th grade? Definitely sometime around there. It's been a favorite ever since. And it took a while, but I own my own copy of this lovely story. So what's holding me back from reading this gem again? NOTHING. Hence, it is on this list. Plus! I just saw today that Gail Carson Levine has a prequel releasing in October (Ogre Enchanted) so ya know...I AM JUST UNBELIEVABLY EXCITED. And also very sentimental and nostalgic and emotional and what are words? *happy sigh*

The Secret Circle by L.J. Smith

The Initiation (The Secret Circle, #1)

There is never a day that goes by where I don't think about this trilogy. Honestly, I am obsessed with these characters. The Circle is one of the best groups of friends I've read literally ever. I adore them. I want to re-read this book forever & always.

Honorable Mentions...

Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1)Evernight (Evernight, #1)The Demon's Lexicon (The Demon's Lexicon, #1)

This section is for some books/series I think I want to re-read, but don't want to go so far as to commit to them this year the way I have the others on the list. These are ones I'll maybe pick up soon...but maybe not. Depending on mood. And time. Along with the ones pictured are:
- Six of Crows (which actually has a high possibility since King of Scars releases early next year AND SoC makes such great cozy fall/winter reading)
- The Lux series (because The Darkest Star in October!)
- a Kristen Ashley book, any Kristen Ashley book (they're all fair game at anytime, istg)
- The Illuminae Files (feeeeeeeeeeeels)
- Coffeehouse Angel (because cuteness)

Okay, I'll cut it off there. Obviously I will not get to everything here (hence, honorable mentions) since I DO want to read new things this year too, but I'm pretty sure a fair chunk of my total reads for this year will be re-reads, and I'm okay with that.

Do you re-read? What are your favorite books to re-read? And do you want me to do more in-depth posts about my re-reading? Let me know! :)


  1. You know what series I always reread. Something by Nalini Singh with shifters in it! I just reread Kaleb's book! I love him even more.

    Maybe I should reread some JLA books. But you know I do that a lot too. I'll have to think of some I haven't already reread to consider.

  2. Ella Enchanted was a terrific book, I read my daughter's copy as well as the Twilight series. Have you read Eragon?
