10 Books/Series I Absolutely Love
We all have those books- they are more than just favorites- books that you can reread over and over again, and never tire of. Comfort books, that you can always turn to, read whenever you feel tired or sad. Books that feel like home. Here are my top ten favorite books to reread!
The Raven Cycle
By: Maggie Stiefvater
I only first read this series in 2016, but I instantly became obsessed. Not only is the whole series beautifully written, but the plot is so magical and lovely. I could reread these books over and over, and never get tired of them. I absolutely love all of the characters, especially my precious Raven Boys (and Blue!).
By: Kristin Cashore
I love Fire and Bitterblue as well (the companion books to Graceling), but Graceling definitely has a special place in my heart. Katsa is such a strong female character, and I have always really related to her. The world building in this book is stunning, and I have probably read it about 50 times already.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians/ Heroes of Olympus
By: Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan is my hero, because everything he writes is gold. I have my friend Jamie to thank for introducing me to this series, and wow, are they good. I actually prefer the Heroes of Olympus series, because it’s geared to an older audience, but I love them both. I’m a sucker for anything with mythology, and these books incorporate Greek mythology with the real world flawlessly, and all the main characters are so sarcastic and hilarious. This series just brings me so much joy (when I am not crying over the plot, that is).
Harry Potter Series
By: J.K. Rowling
I grew up on Harry Potter, so of course it is on this list. And when I say I grew up on it, I am 100% serious (or Sirius?). My dad used to read them to my sister and I as bedtime stories, and as soon as I was old enough (and no longer afraid a Dementor would steal my soul) I started reading (and rereading) them. I’m actually currently working my way through the audiobooks, because I have no shame whatsoever.
1-800 Where Are You/Mediator Series
By: Meg Cabot
Okay, so these series aren’t really related (in my head they are in the same universe, but whatever), but when I reread one of these series, I always go and reread the other, because I love them both equally. They have awesome (and sarcastic) female leads, with heartbreakingly cute romances and clever plots. Meg Cabot has a lot of wonderful books/series, but these will always be my favorites.
The Lunar Chronicles
By: Marissa Meyer
Marissa Meyer is another genius author, and I would probably read her grocery list, if she published it. When I first read Cinder, I was shocked, and immediately went to read the rest of the series. It was the first fairytale retelling that I absolutely loved- fleshed out, diverse characters, wonderful world building, and amazing little details from the original fairytales dropped through-out the books. Whenever I read a poorly written book, I turn back to these to restore my faith in YA fiction.
The Westing Game
By: Ellen Raskin
I actually haven’t read this book in a while, but it has been a long time favorite- ever since I was in middle school, and we read it for one of my classes (we had a white board going in order to solve the mystery!). This book is so clever and unique- It really got me hooked on mystery, and I am still impressed by the ingenuity through-out the book.
The Mortal Instruments
By: Cassandra Clare
Okay Cassandra Clare, you can just take ALL of my money, because no matter what you write, I will read it. I absolutely love the shadowhunter world, and all of the series within that world, but The Mortal Instruments are my OG favorites. Jace is such a sarcastic little shit, and I am here for it, over and over again. I aspire to be as badass as Isabelle Lightwood.
The Night Circus
By: Erin Morgenstern
I read this book twice in a row, seriously. It is so complicated and lovely. The magic, the setting, the characters, it keeps drawing me in. Every time I read it I discover new details, things that I missed from the previous read. It is so well written, above all else, that I just want to wrap myself in blankets and read it for the rest of time.
By: John Green
I loved this book in high school. I still do, to be honest. Back then, though, I related to it so much. John Green is a phenomenal writer, and while I love his other books too, this one will always be my favorite. I connected with both Q and Margo so much- I probably read this book 100 times since it was published, and I never got tired of it.
