I’m currently in another reading slump due to the fact that I ruined the ending for the book I’m reading. When this sort of thing happens I like to re-read books. These books aren’t necessarily the best books in the world, but they are easy and enjoyable reads. I’m missing out three books in particular that I re-read a lot – Jane Eyre, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Harry Potter – because I think I’ve talked about them enough.
Book one: Drop Zone by Andy McNab
This is an action packed book, filled with adrenaline and adventure. It’s about getting away from the dullness of everyday life and doing something exciting.
Book two: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This book is one I read a couple years ago and have re-read so many times since (just this book though, not the entire trilogy). I don’t know whether it’s the fact that the main character is one of the coolest girls ever, or it’s because I love the world that was created. Either way it is definitely enjoyable.
Book three: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
This is another book that features a badass female lead, and that makes me love this book. This was one of the first books I read where the main character was a female that doesn’t whimper at the sight of blood, and I love that. It also has action, magic, and romance, so what’s not to love.
Book four: The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Some people don’t like this book, and I don’t know why. I personally love it and it’s definitely better than the Twilight saga. I loved the mental battle in this, and the way these alien creature work. You usually expect alien invaders to be violent and bloodthirsty, but these ones are the opposite and I love that.
Book five: Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
This book will not win any awards, but for some reason I keep coming back to it. I don’t know what it is but I’ve lost count of the numbers of time I’ve re-read it. It isn’t particularly good, the characters aren’t anything special, and yet I continue to pick it up again and again.
