the library’s our cave, the book’s the treasure, the words molten gold
I'm starting things off by confessing that I am not a fan of re-reading books in general. There are books which I loved with all my heart but even given the best of circumstances I would never *ever* reread, mostly out of fear of not enjoying them as much the second time around. I want to preserve that fuzzy warm feeling I got when I first discovered them and make it last forever and ever and ever... Is it so bad though?! 🤔
Some people love revisiting old favourites and swear by it. I, on the other hand, would much faster reread a book I didn't like the first time around just to prove to myself that my first assessment was right. Perhaps one day I'll talk more in depth about my issues with rereading but, overall, it all comes down to the fact that I can't help feeling as if I'm wasting time when there are so many new books out there, and many more being release each week, waiting for me to pick them up.
But alas, I won't take more of your time today.
Without further ado, here are the top ten books I loved but would never reread:
The Martian by Andy Weir | Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Waley | Crimson Peak by Nancy Holder
Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young | All the Bright Places by Jenniver Niven | The Bees by Laline Paul | 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu | Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell | The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
