Books I’d Want To Read Again For The First Time.

Some books were made to read a thousand times. You know, those books you totally adore and you read over and over, and some other, althought not always, are made for the plot twist.

Sure, you can reread a book that has a massive plot twist again and look for all the foreshadowing leading to that moment (i’m looking at you We were liars) but it’s not the same, at least for me.

So, while thinking about More Happy Than Not (by the amazing Adam Silvera), the other day, i thought to myself… If I had the oportunity to erase my memory of a book, which books would i want to have the ability to reread for the first time?

It’s not an easy question… not because i’ve read that many books, but because there are those i don’t mind rereading them knowing what is going to happen, actually i’m mostly looking forward to it.

So, what are actually the books i would want to reread for the first time… and why?

Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster

I know, i know… this is not a “mystery” book, but not knowing who is Jerusha’s Daddy-Long-Legs is actually quite a mystery on the book. I remember the mindblown i got the first time my sister finished reading the book to me… i was… i could not believe it (well, i was 8 or 9). I wish i could try to resolve it again at my age, see if i could figure out the truth… I still enjoy the foreshadowing. This is a book i still read and read… and it’s one of my favorites of all time.

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Another one of my favorite books of all time… I wish i could go back and rediscover who Blue was. I remember i got it the day it came out and i loved it so much i just couldn’t put it down and i tried and tried to figure out who Blue was but i did not discover it myself. I wish i could go back and try again.

Gone For Good by Harlan Coben

Before i got into YA, i was a huge fan of thrillers. My favorite author back then was Harlan Coben and i read all the book that were out back then. Until i realized they all were pretty much the same. But this ne stuck with me and i really love it. I wish i could go back before the massive plot twist.

I’m thinking of ending things by Iain Reid

A book that had me guessing and guessing all the time i was reading it… i wish i could go back and try again to understand what the heck was happening, i did figure it out but just before it was revelead in the book.

Half Lost by Sally Green

The book i wish i never read, period. Don’t get me wrong i absolutely ADORE this trilogy, Half Life, but i was not ready, nor will ever be for that ending, okay? Can all the people who read it agree that never happened? This book never came out. (i love this book so much i have more than one copy of it).

My sister’s keeper by Jodi Picoult

Last but not least … this book. Okay so much happens in this book, i could never reread it without knowing… i wish i could erase my meory of it and read it again for the first time because so many powerful plot twist. If you haven’t read it yet and you don’t have a problem wth books making you vry you should give it a try.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid

I'm Thinking of Ending Things I’m Thinking Of Ending Things by Iain Reid

Genre: Psychological Thriller, Suspense
Pages: 224
Publisher: Gallery/Scout Press
Rating: 3.75 stars

Summary: You will be scared. But you won’t know why…

I’m thinking of ending things. Once this thought arrives, it stays. It sticks. It lingers. It’s always there. Always.

Jake once said, “Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can’t fake a thought.”

And here’s what I’m thinking: I don’t want to be here.

In this deeply suspenseful and irresistibly unnerving debut novel, a man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. When the two take an unexpected detour, she is left stranded in a deserted high school, wondering if there is any escape at all. What follows is a twisted unraveling that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.

My opinion on the book:

There was something about this book. The moment i read the name of it i knew i wanted to read it.

The things about the book is that it is unsettling, and dyou really won’t know what’s really happening, which in my opinion makes a great thriller.

The characters are very well written, the thoughts of the narrator are very real and touchable. I liked that she described little things that her boyfriend did, even the little details that make a person.

The book felt very personal, and i truly enjoy that. The story goes back and forward between the couple and some people talking about an incident that happened, which makes the suspense even greater.

There isn’t much i can say about the book without giving away spoilers about what happens in the book, but there are some raw imagery, especially when they get to the farm… I loved the scenery, it was creepy and at the same time thrilling.

Overall, i did enjoy the book, it reminded me the ‘wtf’ feeling i had while reading Haruki Murakami’s After Dark.

I understand by the reviews in goodreads that the book is equally loved and hated, so i really hope you are of the second group and enjoy the reading. I know i’ll be rereading it somewhen soon enough.

‘Til Next Time 😉
