Top 5Wednesday is created by Lainey & is hosted by Samantha.
Hello, Wednesday-ers! This is my first post for this weekly meme and I am super excited to start! I know I already have another list meme, but I LOVE lists so here I am!
I am super excited for this weeks’ theme because I HAVE a few books that I have rated and/or enjoyed the second time I read them.
If you don’t already know, I LOVE rereading books, especially those books that I love. However, there are times when I have DNF’d a book and for some reason or another, pick them back up again THEN FALL IN LOVE WITH IT! This has happened to me a number of times that I even blogged about it!
Cinder is one of those books that I originally didn’t care much of. At that time, I was barely reading YA and this was perhaps one of my very first fairy tale retellings. I followed this book with Scarlet but I also didn’t get into it as much. UNTIL a few months later when I picked up Scarlet again and the rest is history!
Throne of Glass is one of those books that I liked when I first read it but I wasn’t really into it. Fast forward to one year after I first read ToG when I got hooked! I then binge read books 2-4 and I am now a LEGIT fan! I now absolutely LOVE this series! Not just love, BUT FREAKING OBSESSED! I cannot begin to even explain this series to you guys. I have also convinced Pierre to read it and HE HAS! He actually read all 4 and is
impatiently waiting for the next one!
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake was a book a started that I HATED and DNF’d after a few pages. For some reason, I picked it up again a few years later and fell in love with Calpurnia the heroine! In fact, I have read this book multiple times already and I still can’t get enough of Callie and Gabriel! Swoooon!
To this day, this is one of my favorite Sarah McLean books!
Devil in Winter is one of Lisa Kleypas’ 5 starred books, with Sebastian St. Vincent as a favorite among romance readers. Me, not so much. However, I heard THE NEWS about the newest cross-series (sort of) book, Devil in Spring, featuring Evie and St. Vincent’s son, SO I HAD to read this book again. I actually enjoyed it more this time around and bumped my previously rated 3-star to a 4-star because of Evie. I mean, SHE made this book. Still not a fan of St. Vincent, though, but he did redeem himself in the end. Only, he just isn’t my favorite.
I only read Divergent once and I have also seen the movie and now that I think about it, I just don’t get the popularity of the series. I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy Divergent, I DID, only I wasn’t too crazy about it. I mean, I read this after I read The Hunger Games so maybe that lessened my enjoyment to this one? I just have to say that I am a little losing interest in dystopias. For now. At least. THE HORROR, I know but that’s my confession. Anyway, I didn’t even read the other two books in the series. And now that I KNOW the book ends with [spoiler]TRIS DYING!! [/spoiler] I don’t even know if I WANT to read them. Also, the second half of Allegiant is going straight to TV now?
So, tell me the books you felt differently about the second (or even third) time you read it.
Have you read any of the books on my list? Let me know your thoughts on them!
