It is once again time for a Top
Ten Five Tuesday! This week’s prompt is Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, created by The Broke and Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Byron
This is one of my first most memorable reads of 2021. It wasn’t my most favorite read, but I liked where it was going. Mentally, I wasn’t in a very good place when I read it – I would have liked to read it for the first time where my brain was in a more not-sad space.
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Just a very fun read. It’s different from the Ghibli movie, but still wonderfully magical.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Now, this book I read for the first time shortly after it came out. I instantly fan-girled with that Oingo Boingo reference and all of those ’80s pop culture references had me sold. I’d probably still fangirl over the references, but I’d like to think that I’ve matured a bit since then and might be more critical towards story and characters.
The Ritual by Adam Nevill
I know I just finished this book – I am working on a review – but it’s been a while since I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat when reading a book. I’d like to experience that again!
Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko
Okay – this blog might as well be a Raybearer fan blog. It’s not, but it might as well be. I love this book and I’d love to read it for the first time again!
This was a bit of a mixed bag. Hope you enjoyed. Happy reading ❤️
