A childhood favorite you could read 100 times and still love
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – It was a staple book for me growing up. I have no idea how many times I’ve actually read it. Somewhere over 20 at least.
A book you DNF’d but would be willing to give a second chance to
The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer – As much as I love the first, second, and third Artemis Fowl books and consider those staples, for me as the series progressed, the worse the books got. I ended up DNF-ing this one, the seventh one. Though I can see myself giving it another try at some point, just because I do own the eighth and final book and do want to know how it ends. We’ll see.
A new favorite you would reread
Black Butler by Yana Toboso – This series ended up on my favorites list in 2020, and I do plan on rereading the first 28 volumes again before picking up vol 29. Hopefully vol 30 won’t be too far off either.
A book you hated and never want to read again
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime vol 1 by Fuse – This book made my bottom books of 2020 list, and I have 0 interest in giving it another shot nor continuing with the series.
A classic you read in school but want to try again
1984 by George Orwell – I remember disliking this book when I was 17 because I wanted a happy ending. Now, I feel like I could appreciate the ending it did have more.
An author you would reread anything from
Hiromu Arakawa, author of Fullmetal Alchemist, Silver Spoon, and artist of The Heroic Legend of Arslan. Everything I’ve picked up that she’s been associated with, I’ve loved. Any time she puts out something new, I’ll be all over it. Master storyteller, I’m tellin ya.
A series you want to reread for the fun of it
Eventually I’d like to reread Brent Weeks’ Lightbringer series, but that will involve me finishing book five for the first time first :p
A book you’ve read but want to listen to the audio book
Basically any of the books in Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings world. I read all sixteen books physically but am considering picking them up on audio for a reread. We’ll see!
And that’s it! If you’d like to do this tag, consider yourself tagged. Happy reading!
