This week’s topic: Books I loved but will never re-read
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon – Jamie and Claire are one of my favorite love stories, but I don’t have the energy to re-read this series. The author has said many times this series is not romance but a historical novel. Boy does she put in a lot of historical facts! The books are long because of this and there are times I found it interesting, but it does slow the pace of the story. Jamie and Claire have to endure a lot in this series and I can’t go through that again lol. But I can’t wait for the next book and part of me wants this series to end, so I don’t have to see them suffering lol.
Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl – I loved this series for the characters and unique story. But the movie was awful and I can’t get over the disappointment lol.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater – I loved this series but hated the ending. There was no closure and I was hoping she would write more about Grace. The author did release Sinner which featured supporting characters, and it was an ok read for me.
Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer – this series will always have a special place in my heart because it got me to read again. As much as I love this I can’t find myself re-reading this. I’ve seen the movies so many times, I don’t think I would get a new appreciation for reading the books.
Fifty Shades of Grey series by E.L. James – I did not love this series! But I’m glad I read it. Everyone was talking about this book (even TV show host Dr. Oz!), so I was curious about it. Once I finished the first book I had to continue, so I can see Christian have a HEA.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – this series was long and I was frustrated with Feyre! I loved Rhysand and his family, and if I had to (or time) I would re-read his parts of the story. I am looking forward to reading A Court of Frost and Starlight, hoping my favorite characters will be featured.
Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi – I enjoyed this series and I thought it was beautifully written. But Juliette irritated me in the later books. I have no desire to re-read this series, but I can’t wait to read Restore Me. I’m hoping I won’t be frustrated with Juliette again.
What are the books you would never re-read?
