I admit that I will rarely read a book over again. Once I’ve finished a book, I’m ready to experience a new tale. I also like the idea of supporting as many authors as I can. With that being said, there are some books that have captured my heart so much that I long to read them again. These are the 9 special titles that I will be rereading in the future. I’ll be hyperlinking the titles you can check them out and add them to your reading list! 🙂
Irkadura by Ksenia Anske – It’s a gritty tale about a young Russian girl who sees people for the creatures they are. This story gripped my heart and has seared itself into my memory. I must read this book again so I can re-experience all the amazing characters and fantastical elements.
The Value Of Damaged Things by Penn Gates – It’s just one of those stories that sweeps you away and you almost become one with the character’s journey. This is an intense self-discovery story about a young woman who falls down the path of alcoholism. I couldn’t put it down.
World After Geezer: Year One by Penn Gates – As you can see, I love books by this author! In a completely different genre from The Value Of Damaged Things, this is a post-apocalyptic tale about a feisty female cop, the group of kids she takes care of, and a young man named Cash who becomes more than just a friend. I loved the interactions between the characters and the unlikely love story made it a perfect one to read – and want to read again.
Taint by Jude Nichols – I found this amazing book on Instagram after doing a search for indie authors. The book blurb and cover drew me in. I actually ordered the print version! The innocent, but sharp protagonist made me root for her from the very beginning. She’s a teenage beauty queen and someone’s out to get her – she just doesn’t know it yet. This is one of those stories that will amaze you when you read it. I hope you check it out!
A Farewell To Demons by Dean Tongue – This was such an amazing book of poems from an author I consider to be a friend. I connected with them very much and found his personal journey to be very inspiring. Anyone who enjoys a story of redemption will enjoy these poems.
What Now? by Dean Tongue – This book was very real, gritty, and honest. I will read it again, because it was so good and I enjoyed having a sample of what goes on in his mind. It’s a unique read for anyone who enjoys poetry.
The Good Audit by C.P. Aiden – This book will have you laughing. It’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever read. It was witty and true to life about office culture, particularly in the accounting field. I will absolutely be reading this one again so I can laugh and enjoy the fun banter between the managers and employees.
Dear Comrade Novak by Silvia Hildrebrandt – There’s something about stories set in East Europe that really get to me. It’s the tale of a gay secret service agent who has to expose others like him to hide his identity. You feel horror at what he’s doing, yet pity him for the position he’s in. You don’t come by a story like this too often. Tragic and eventful, I will have to revisit this book very soon.
Get In My Head: Jared’s Story by S.M. Holland – I love all of the books in this series, because they demonstrate very artfully how it feels to live with a certain mental illness or mood disorder. Sometimes the best way to understand this is to live through another person’s eyes and see how it is to be in their mind. Since bipolar disorder is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed as other things, I thought this was a very responsible way to portray a teenager who has the mood disorder. I want to read it again, because it’s one of those stories that makes you want to keep turning the page as you try to understand what’s happening. A must read for anyone who hasn’t read it yet!
Thank you so much for checking out my post today. Let me know if you’re going to check out any of these books! 🙂
