This week’s prompt is interesting. I have never really thought about books I loved but wouldn’t read. So, I dove into my goodreads “Read” shelf and starting looking. Here is what I came up with.
Author: SL Scott
Why I wouldn’t reread: this was a great book. However, its all based on ‘the feels’ and I typically don’t get the feels the second time around. You already know what’s coming, ya know? But, its still a phenomenal book and one of my best reads of 2017.
Title: The Outskirts
Author: TM Frazier
Why I wouldn’t reread: I loved this book when it first came out. Over time, however, I think my feelings have sort of faded and I’m not sure why I loved it so much.
Title: Fallen Crest Nightmare
Why I wouldn’t reread: This was a short story included in an anthology. I loved it but its totally based on you being surprised by the events. Having read it already, I know what the twist is, and it sort of makes the story less interesting the second time around.
Title: Menace and Grievous
Author: JM Darhower
Why I wouldn’t reread: This duet was one I listened to and honestly, I think it was the fabulous narrators that made it so much more enjoyable for me. The story is great-its dark and a bit twisty; just not something I would want to read/listen to again.
Author: Jay Crownover
Why I wouldn’t reread: I loved that Poppy finally got her HEA. Seriously, no one deserved it more. But I feel good with the way it was all wrapped up and while I loved it, I don’t have any desire to reread.
Title: The Player/The Catch
Author: K. Bromberg
Why I wouldn’t reread: This is another one that is based on a twist. Once you know it, rereading is less exciting since you know how it all pans out. But, man, it was SO GOOD the first time.
Author: SE Hall
Why I wouldn’t reread: Another book with the feels. This is a sort of sappy love story that is based entirely on the romance. While totally enjoyable, I am not sure it would have the same impact in a reread. I think part of me is afraid to try to reread books that fall into this category because I won’t like them as much and it will tarnish the good memory I have!
Title: Virtue Falls Series
Author: Christina Dodd
Why I wouldn’t reread: These books were great but once you know who the bad guy is, the tension is kind of gone and I don’t think I would enjoy it as much.
Title: The Pucked Series
Author: Helena Hunting
Why I wouldn’t reread: These books were fun, light, rom coms for the most part. But, there is only so many sexual innuendos and sex puns you can read about. I hit my limit with one read and wouldn’t go back for more.
Title: Unlawful Justice
Authors: KC Lynn and K. Langston
Why I wouldn’t reread: This book was emotional!! Its all very plausible and it was not a light or easy read. I loved it, but it isn’t one I want to revisit because its so emotionally draining!
