BOOKS I WANT TO RE-READ IN 2018
“There’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over again. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you’ve read only once can’t.’
Therefore, I would like to experience the feeling of re-reading books and get to understand the words in a different perspective. I have a few books I plan to re-read this year, some of these books I read earlier when I started my reading journey. I only included one duo-logy I read last year. Without any further adjure, here are the books I want to re-read this year, in no particular order:
- I Will Carry You by Angie Smith – this is one of the books I read 2/3 years ago. I enjoyed it and I was emotionally wrecked afterwards. In this book Angie Smith shares some of her struggles after finding out that, the baby she was carrying at that time would not survive after birth. I admire the love of God and the way she trusted God throughout the journey and with that she decided to carry the child until birth.
- A Return To Love by Marianne – I read this book during a time whereby I was so stressed out with school work and some personal issues and I don’t actually remember what I felt when I read it. It’s the first book in my bookshelf I don’t remember a thing about. So it would be like reading it for the first time.
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – This book is about someone who is trying to find treasure. Essentially, it’s about finding yourself or finding your path in life. I would like to find another perspective of the story and annotate the things that stand out for me. It’s one of my favourite books of all time.
- Born A Crime By Trevor Noah – I read this book earlier last year and did not own a physical copy, thus I listened to the audio-book. I was really captivated by the audio-book and I wanted to get my own copy. When the paperback version was released this year, I decided to get my own copy and now I need to read the book.
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – my favorite duo-logy for the year 2017. You might be wondering why I want to re-read this duo-logy, because it’s only been a few months. This duo-logy takes place in a wold called “Grisha World” and they are books prior to this duo-logy that take place in the same world (but this duo-logy is not based on the preceding series). Therefore, my plan is to read this series and then re-read Six of Crows duo-logy, because I would like to know how I feel about this duo-logy after having to understand the previous series.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I read this book early last year and at first I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it. It felt a bit slow for me at the beginning but I adored it. I only listened to the audio-book and I want to read the physical copy and see how I feel about it now.
Those were the books I plan to re-read this year. I would like to know if you guys have any books planned to re-read and reasons for doing that, please let me know in the comments section below.
Until next time,
