Welcome to the second installment of a little thing we like to call 'Book Discussion' here on A Book So Fathomless. The deal with this is every month Chami and I will create post discussing a certain topic that has to do with books in some way, we'll tell you what we think and then you have a chance to tell us your opinions either in the comment section or in a post on your own blog (please send us a link if you do this!). This month's topic is 'books you can re-read'.
The following list aren't all books that I have re-read at this point in time, but ones I feel I could re-read if I got the chance or ones that I do plan to re-read in the upcoming months.
The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling:
This is definitely the series I have re-read the most amount of times. I started reading them when I was about seven (the first movie came out when I was five, but my mum didn't think I was old enough to read the books or see the movie at that time. Little did she know that my older brother used to trick my grandparents into letting me see the movie whenever we were at theirs). Anyway, I've read this series about fifteen or so times since.
The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead:
I haven't read this one as many times as Harry Potter, in fact I've only read it about once or twice again (certain chapters and scenes have been read more than others) but I am actually planning to read through the entire series in the upcoming months in preparation for when the movie actually comes out.
The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare:
This is another book that I've only sort of skim re-read, though like VA I am planning to re-read at least the first book before the movie is released this year and then possibly go onto read the rest of the series before the last book is released.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green:
I've read this book twice since I read it about this time last year and both times I've ended up as a wreck for days afterwards, but there's something about this book that makes me just want to constantly re-read it for the intense beauty of it and of course, for Augustus Waters.
Atonement by Ian McEwan:
This is a bit of a strange book I suppose, especially considering it's the book I'm currently studying in my Literature class but I read this book in January this year in its entirety on a three hour plane flight and I just adored it more than anything. I'm currently in the process of re-reading it again for class and then I plan to re-read again just before exams. If I'm totally honest with myself I'll probably read it again even after we've finished studying it, it's honestly that good.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley:
This is another slightly strange book and another one I studied in Literature (last year). Going into this book, I wasn't sure whether I'd actually enjoy it, after all I'd heard nothing about it and we'd just come off the back of a little George Orwell reading spree (I wasn't a fan of 1984), but two chapters in I knew this book would be amazing. I haven't had the chance to re-read it yet, and sadly I don't own a hard copy of it (yet) but once that is fixed I definitely plan to read this!
So those were my favourite books to re-read, now it's Chami's turn to tell you about hers!
Alright ALRIGHTY! Let us get straight into this business.
Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi
This has been a book that I have endlessly talked about on this blog and read multiple times and Ely sure hell knows it. I haven't counted how many times i've read it, but I read it as a weekly occurrence. It is a habit of life. It is just...unbeliably everything I've ever wanted in a book and it hooks me in and takes me down under.
