Re-Readathon Five


I’m taking part in another rereadathon! 

I’ve been thinking recently about the kind of YA books I’ve enjoyed reading recently and how I missed out in a lot of YA books as a teen because I moved on to adult fiction so young. The thing is… as much as there are some YA books that I do love, they’re not written for me. I’m twenty five, I can’t and shouldn’t judge them as their intended readership. So, I made a list of the books I enjoyed aged 10-13, found the ones that I still own and there’s my TBR for this week! I’m going mega old school, back to 2002!

My list for the week is:

The Raging Quiet by Sheryl Jordan

Almost Perfect by James Pope

The Misfits by James Howe

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

If I can find them and have the time I’d also quite like to reread Another Life by Frank McGinty, Doll by Nicky Singer and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor.

Here’s to a busy week with old favourites!

One thought on “Re-Readathon Five

  1. I’m so glad you’re joining us rereading next week! Speak was one of my favourite books when it came out, but it wasn’t until a few years ago, when there was a big outcry about schools trying to take it out of the libraries in America, that I realised just how important a book it was. And Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry was one that hit me very hard. I believe I have read the sequel or sequels, but they didn’t have as much of an impact as I was older – but now I’m even older, I’d be interested to try again.
