Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re listing books we loved but won’t reread. There are a lot of books I will probably never reread. Not necessarily because I don’t want to, but because I have so many that I want to read and reread that it’s impossible to get to all of them. But the ones below are books I absolutely loved, and gave 5 star ratings to on GR, but don’t think I will choose to reread:
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
These books are the ones that I won’t reread because they made me too sad. I loved them and am very glad to have read them, but they’re also difficult for me to read even the first time around. So I don’t exactly think I’m going to be craving a reread anytime soon!
Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel
Please Don’t Come Back From the Moon by Dean Bakopoulos
Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan
A Thousand Years of Good Prayers by Yiyun Li
While these are also books I loved at the times I read them, I don’t think I will reread them because I’m not sure I would feel the same way again on a reread. Maybe I would still like them, but I have a feeling that I won’t love them exactly the same way. And so, though I don’t want to say “never”, the chances of me picking them up again are lower than other titles.
What are books you loved but won’t re-read?
