A new Top Five Tuesday, the prompts are created by Bionic Book Worm. I love rereading books, whether it’s one of my favourites or just a story that I’ve forgotten the plot to! These are my next/top rereads:
1. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
ASOIAF has a lot to take in, every time I read them I connect something else in the story or see things from a different point of view. I could reread these books forever. Because of how they’re written, every chapter we’re with a different character in a different part of their mad world so it’s always interesting. I can’t get enough of this series so I’ll be rereading them forever!
2. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
This book is so incredible but I’ve only read it once so I can’t wait to enjoy it all over again. This is kind of my dream book, it’s set in the 1920’s-40’s and it all about the possibilities of life and the decisions we make affecting our lives.
3. Atonement by Ian McEwan
I haven’t read this book in so long and it’s one of my favourites. The film is also one of my favourites. I clearly have a thing about WWII Britain.
4. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
I haven’t read these books since the last film came out, it’s definitely time I reread them again. This is another series that I will always come back to because of the emotional connection I have to it and how brilliant it is!
5. His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
I loved this series when I was younger and Pullman has written a book that’s set twenty years after the events in the last book, it’s out later this year. I am so excited and I thought I’d better read the series again just to remind myself of all the details! The series is aimed at children but it’s so complex and clever that I think any age would enjoy it.
Harry Potter should really be on the list as it’s another series that I will never not want to read but I only read them all last year so they’ll have to wait!
