Re-Read Challenge 2015

Re-Read Challenge

I have been following So Obsessed With and Belle of the Literati for some time now and I love the challenge they’ve created for 2015. The point of this challenge is to “relive the magic of your favourite books. Return to your favourite stories, characters and worlds. Remember what it was like the first time around, and see just how fun it can be to re-read.”

I have enjoyed rereading favourite books my entire life, but that has fallen off the rails a bit since I started university four years ago. This year, I will be transitioning into the “real world” and while that’s going to be hectic, I hope that also means there will be time for revisiting childhood favourites as well as special books I enjoyed studying at school. I’m aiming for 12 books – one per month – but really, I’m fine with any number as long as I am ultimately doing more rereading. Here are a few of the books I hope to be revisiting this year:

  1. Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels
  2. Ida B by Katherine Hannigan
  3. The Wicked Years series by Gregory Maguire
  4. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
  5. The Books of Bayern series by Shannon Hale
  6. The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
  7. Pat of Silver Bush series by L.M. Montgomery
  8. Protector of the Small series by Tamora Pierce
  9. Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
  10. Headhunter by Timothy Findley
  11. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  12. Zink by Cherie Bennett

A lot of this list is comprised of series, and I’m not sure I’ll get to all of them, but I would like to! If you’re interested in signing up – which I hope you are! – go check out the sign-up page on Hannah’s blog. Happy re-reading!
