Top 3 Thursday: Books I Want to Re-read

I’m not going to lie, there are PLENTY of books I’d love to re-read, and I’m sure a whole bunch of them will be read again (and again) in my lifetime 🙂

Below are some of the ones that spring to mind immediately…

1. The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy

To be perfectly hones,t I don’t remember too much about this book but I do remember finishing it and having this overwhelming feeling that I had just read an absolutely amazing piece of literature. I truly hope that the feeling sticks when I re-read it (which I really hope to do soon!)

If you have read it and would like to affirm this feeling for me, you know where to reach me 😉 haha

2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck – Mark Manson

I feel like this is a book that I’ll continue to find nuggets of wisdom in as I go back to it throughout my life. I know that it hasn’t been everyone’s favourite book, but I’m definitely the kind of person who likes to avoid conflict and tries to make other people happy – not in a vapid people-pleasing-at-any-cost kind of way, but enough that reading this book reminded me that it’s okay to not *always* be that person.

3. Americanah – Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie

My first Adichie book and I adored it! I have a couple more of hers now sitting on myself that should probably come before re-reading this one. But I’d definitely recommend picking up Americanah if you haven’t already read it!!


Do you re-read books? Are there any you are itching to pick up again?

Ever since my Mum told me she never ree-reads books (or maybe only accidentally, but hey we’ve all been there!) I’m so interested to know if other people also avoid re-reading?

There are so many great books out there to get through, so I totally understand it, but sometimes I want the comfort of a book I know I’m going to love.

  1. I enjoy re-reading books. Sometimes I just read the parts that I loved on first reading, sometimes the whole book. Often there’s new food for thought, something I missed earlier. A tree grows in Brooklyn, Of human bondage and To kill a mocking bird have been my recent rereads.
