Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read

signature (3)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top TEN Books I loved but will never re-read:

 

1. Bloodlines & Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

I really enjoyed both of these series. I have all the books but I really don’t know that I will ever re-read them. I have so many other books that I would rather re-read, even though, I loved these!

2. The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley 

The Promise of Stardust

This is an amazing book. I loved it so much and I own it. I will never re-read this book. Since I’ve read this, I’ve dealt with a miscarriage, it would be too much for me to handle.

3. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

Why Not Me?

I really enjoyed this book, a lot. I will not ever re-read it though. It’s non-fiction and I don’t know what else I could get from it, after another go at it. It’s one of my favorite autobiographies by a celebrity.

4. The Book of Tomorrow by Cecilia Ahern

The Book of Tomorrow

I picked this up at a random book sale and thought I would give it a shot. I really enjoyed it but I wont be reading it again. I’ve already donated my copy of this book.

5. The Host by Stephanie Meyer

The Host (The Host, #1)

I really liked this book. It has a lot of mixed reviews but I enjoyed it. I will never re-read it though. I thought I wanted to after I saw the movie but then decided I didn’t really care too. I know, that probably sounds so bad.

6. World Without End by Ken Follett

World Without End (Kingsbridge, #2)

This is a fabulous book. I’ve also read it out of order but it doesn’t really matter that much. They are also meaty books but it’s so worth it. I plan to get to the others soon. Even though, I loved this so much, I will not be doing a re-read of it. I do highly recommend it though!

7. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty 

Big Little Lies

I loved this book way before it was cool. Certainly, way before there was ever talks about a show. I love this one and it’s one of my favorites by Moriarty. I think, The Husband’s Secret, might be my actual favorite. Anyways, I will not be giving this another re-read.

8. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Water for Elephants

This is a great book and the movie wasn’t too bad either! I just can’t ever find myself picking it up for another re-read.

9. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

I really loved this series. It’s really good and the movies are just as good. I didn’t love the last book that much though. I just don’t ever see myself wanting to re-read this series. Even though, it’s a great YA series, there are so many others that I would prefer to re-read. It’s also quite depressing.

10.  Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander (Outlander, #1)

This is a fabulous book! The show is too. I am in the third book and I’ve had to take a break. Now, I wont re-read these because they are just so meaty. There is so much in these books and it’s a long time commitment. I have so many books to read that this isn’t a possibility for me. I’m taking a long enough time getting through the books for the first time, I don’t think I could ever make myself do it again!

 

Now, I have others on my list, which I’m sure many do. What are books that you loved and will never re-read? Do you still have them on your bookshelf? I do for some of these. No regrets. I don’t care if they are taking up space. Even though, I’m so sure I won’t ever re-read these again. How do I know, I wont want to in like 10 years?!

  1. I don’t know if I would read THGs again considering I do like the movies better. So any time I think about rereading, I’ll probably just be like: I’ll just watch the movies. I just recently read BIG LITTLE LIES and THE HUSBAND’S SECRET and loved them both. The TV show had me addicted, so I knew I wanted to try the book. Great list 🙂

    • Haha, So true about the movies!! I just have a hard time re-reading books when I have sooo many on my TBR list!! Both of those books are great! I loved The Husband’s Secret! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love your list!

    I couldn’t stand the last THG book. I raged when my little cinnamon roll Peeta got shafted. I get why Katiness separated herself from him when he came back, but I wanted to punch her when she kept going back to Gale…and there I go, ranting again.

  3. I don’t think I’ve read any of these, but I did add a couple to my list because they sound great! I was going to add The Promise of Stardust (what a pretty cover, right?), but I think I’ll pass on that for the same reason you cited. I’m not sure I’m in the right headspace for that at this point. Great list!

    • Awesome! I’m glad that you found some interesting. Yes, The Promise of Stardust has a pretty cover and is amazing! Although… if you have been through a similar situation, it would be too difficult. I don’t blame you at all.

  4. Nice list. I just read Hunger Games for the first time and liked it, but would I re- read it? I’m not sure! Big Little Lies I’m pretty fond of- that one I can see MAYBE re- reading at some point? And I do want to read the Vampire academy, but I didn’t realize there were so many books!

    • Thank you! LOL! Yeah, it’s so hard to say. Sometimes I think that maybe when I’ve gotten a few years from it, I would re-read. Then I get worried that I wouldn’t like it the same and ruin it. Vampire Academy is really a fast read!! So, don’t get too overwhelmed with the number of the books because they are quick reads!

  5. I’m unlikely to reread The Host even though I absolutely loved it, because I’m still disappointed that she didn’t continue on with the series as she’d planned. It felt like there was so much potential with the world and the story, so the fact that she abandoned it really disappointed me.
    The only other book on your list that I’ve read is Vampire Academy, which I’ve read twice and can somehow not remember at all? I keep wanting to carry on with the series, but that would mean rereading book one AGAIN and if I’ve forgotten it twice already I’m not sure I want to invest any more time in it.

    • I totally understand about The Host. I’m also pretty let down that she didn’t continue it. I really liked the world she created and she could have done so much more with it. LOL!! Yeah, maybe you shouldn’t give VA another try! Especially, since you’ve read it twice and have forgotten it. Not all books and series are from everyone 🙂

  6. I would add Vampire Academy and Bloodlines to my list too! Basically, I am not a re-reader so even books I so thoroughly enjoyed and irrevocably loved I would never re-read because there’s just not enough time!

    Thanks for visiting my blog post!

  7. Your reason for not re-reading The Host is better than mine– I am just too lazy to read such a long book again. I actually liked the movie almost as much as the book, but that isn’t going to change my lethargic mind.

    The Outlander series has been on my TBR for a while now. I love anything about time travel, but, like you said, the series is a serious commitment. My goal for this summer is to at least read the first two books and see if it is worth continuing with (or if I should just give up and watch the TV show). I already have all of the books at my house (a gift from my mother who by some miracle actually read all of them). So, I really have no more excuses to put the series off.

    • The Outlander books are SO good. I’m just finding myself not picking them up because I can read like 5 other books in that time. haha. I started reading the current season with that book. Each episode was about 100 pages, so I would read that much after each episode. I REALLY liked doing that. The show is great but the book still has much more to it. I hope you get to it this summer!! You can do it!! 🙂

  8. I almost had Vampire Academy and The Hunger Games on my list, but I’m still on the fence about re-reading them. I didn’t even think about The Host, though. I really liked it, and sometimes I think about re-reading it, but I’m not sure I ever actually will.

  9. Most books that I read I will never re-read, but I keep them on my shelves for always. Part of that is the hopes that at some point my kids will want to read them, but also I will have them available to loan to friends (if I ever make any friends in our new location), and also, maybe in twenty years I will want to revisit one of them.

    Have a great week.

    • Yes!! This is my exact thinking! I don’t really think I will re-read but I’m hoping my kids will want to! Then I can talk to them about it and so on. Plus, who doesn’t want a mini library in their house?!? 😁

  10. The Host is a book I reread once a year or or at least every couple of years. Vampire academy has also been reread numerous times hahaha. I don’t think I would do Bloodlines though even though I love Adrian, the ending to that series just isn’t as good.

    • You know, I have the last Bloodlines book but I have not read it. I thought I had but apparently, I hadn’t! So, I’ll have to catch up on that one. That’s awesome that you have re-read them numerous times! 🙂

  11. I loved the Vampire Academy, but don’t think I’d re-read it either. I tend to be like that with long series, & big books, especially if it’s a long series with big books like Outlander is. Great list!

  12. I had no clue they made The Host into a movie, wow. And I’ve actually been thinking about doing a re-read of Big Little Lies because I liked it “before it was cool”, too, except it was so long ago, I can’t remember why, hah. Love the list!
