Books I Loved But Will Never Re-Read | Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week. 


Turns out, most of the books I’ll never reread is because I read them years ago, as a child or in my early teens and don’t want to judge their quality now. I think that leaving some of them alone is the best way to honour the choices I made and what I liked then. Also there’s other reasons, for examples there’s some beautiful or emotional memories I have attached to certain places and I want to keep those.

The Gone Series by Michael Grant

  • Book 7 is out after four year break, needless to say I started this series a long time ago, the first book came out in 2008. I’ll give it a chance for nostalgia’s sake, but I’m not rereading this series to catch up again.

Night School series by C. J. Daughtery

  • I had trouble reading the last book of this series, I found it an exciting ya spy-ish read and is torn between not wanting it to end and being a bit bored

Heist Society by Ally Carter

  • A fantastic young adult mystery and heist series which I would still very much recommend, but I have no need to reread.

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

  • What would a top ten tuesday list be without a Sanderson book?
  • A good ya fantasy book, but not worth a reread for me

The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

  • Was a great series for me as a child, further fueling my interest for mythology, stories and especially greek gods. Most recently read the Heroes of Olympus and if that’s a pointer, I’ve grown out of these series. Won’t dare to ruin the magic rereading it and finding out, though I think the Heroes of Olympus is more unoriginal overall.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

  • Do I need to explain why this book is on this list? The movies and hype ruined it for me, as they did with Divergent, I won’t reread it to find out just how much.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

  • Liked it when I first read it, but later books in the series made it not worth the reread.

Vampirates series by Justin Somper

  •  Once upon a time I read a series with pirates that sometimes were turned into vampires and two twins who wanted to spend their life at sea. I had never found a book that perfect for me, in norwegian because this was before I learned a lot of english, with a strong female character as well. I will definitely reread it one time out of curiosity, so not never, but it deserved its place on this list.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

  • I read this book in summer, visiting one place, a family summer house that reminded me a lot of the summer house of this story. This book will now forever be linked to that place, and I hope to find new book experiences like that.

The first three books of the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik

  • I loved this series with dragons and war between nations. Novik has since written books like Uprooted and has a new release soon. So I searched for her and realized there exists SIX other books in this series! How did this go me by? I read the first three books translated to norwegian at my library, and these just never appeared. I’ll never reread the three first books because there’s a slim chance I’ll ever finish it at all if she’s going to continue releasing those amazing fairytale-inspired books as Uprooted.

    I’d love to get into Percy Jackson

    But I agree with you about Divergent, which I haven’t read, and THG, which I have read it too many times.
