The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Every once in awhile I come across a book that is so captivating and resonates so deeply with me, and I can’t put into words why. The Secret History was that kind of book. It’s a monster at almost 700 pages, but I still wanted to absorb every single word. I want to reread this someday so that I can pick up on all the things I may have missed the first time around. I can’t wait to revisit these fascinating characters and this remarkable story.
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
It’s been a couple years since I read this book, and I remember it being so suspenseful and creepy! I’ve kind of been on a horror/apocalyptic kick lately and I would love to read this book again.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I have a confession: I still haven’t read Crooked Kingdom. At this point, I’m not sure if I would even remember enough important details from Six of Crows to thoroughly enjoy the sequel. I’d actually like to get caught up on all the Grishaverse books before King of Scars comes out, so hopefully I find time to reread the original trilogy. Anyway, this book is a masterpiece, and I know I’ll enjoy it just as much the second time around as I did the first.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
This book is a glorious masterpiece and I adore it so much. From the lovable protagonist to the atmospheric winter setting to the intricate weaving of magical Russian folklore, the Winternight series is everything I want and more. The final book doesn’t come out until January (!!) so I’ll have plenty of time to re-immerse myself in this world before then.
Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker
The story is heartbreaking and the romance is swoon-worthy. I loved Ten Tiny Breaths so much when I read it several years ago, so I almost want to reread it just to see if I would feel the same way now. Then again, K.A. Tucker has released many books since this one and I have magpie tendencies, so I’ll probably pick up those first.
