I have a little stack to share today, which I have pulled together after being inspired by my friend Meeghan from Meeghan Reads. Each Tuesday on her blog Meeghan hosts a meme called ‘Top 5 Tuesday‘ – I’ve been meaning to join in for a while now, and when this week’s theme popped up I couldn’t resist.
There are lots of reasons that readers might want to read a book for the first time again, and in this post I’ve focused on books where something about the way the plot unfolded and came together surprised or delighted me, and I’d love to rediscover those clever twists for the first time again – I don’t want to give away any spoilers so I’m not going to share a lot of info about each book, but you can click on the titles to go to the Goodreads page for a bit more info if you’d like. Of course, the meme is top 5 Tuesday, and you might have spotted that I’ve go six books in my stack – you know know how hard it is to narrow these things down – I promise they are all equally brilliant!.
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
- Waking Romeo by Kathryn Bryant (my review is here, thanks to Allen and Unwin for this copy)
- The Erasure Initiative by Lili Wilkinson (my review to come, thanks to Allen and Unwin for this copy)
- Piranesi by Susanna Clarke (my review is here, thanks to Bloomsbury for this copy)
- The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead
Have you read any of these ones? Or do you have a favourite book you’d love to be able to read for the first time again? Let me know in the comments!
