Today’s Topic: Books I Want to Read Again
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
I’m one of those readers who like to re-visit the stories I love over and over again. Those books become like old friends to me and I have hundreds of them.
So, in order to shorten this list to a manageable size, I’ve chosen to list newer releases that I’ve only read once so far, but would love to read again.
Beach Read – This one pleasantly surprised me. It did the enemies to lovers trope very well.
Gentleman Jim – I literally just finished this one last week, but am ready to read it again.
Loving a Lady – I love all of Van’s books, but I appreciated her writing a believable romance between a poor man and a titled woman.
Daddy Long Legs – The audio book was absolutely charming and is going on my list of favorites this year.
Lu & Louisa – These two books tell the tale of a young woman’s conversion and transformation in a unique way.
You Deserve Each Other – Please make this rom-com into a film ASAP!
Lovely War – I’ve always been fascinated by Greek mythology and like how it was woven into two other story threads in this book set during WWII.
Carry Me Home – A unique setting and a beautiful, sacrificial hero made this one memorable for me.
Whose Waves These Are – Such beautiful writing that slowly saturates, this is a book that left me feeling emotions more than remembering details.
The Girls in the Picture – I didn’t expect to like this fictionalized version of early Hollywood as much as I did, nor to reference it as frequently as I do.
What the Wind Knows – Simply one of the most gorgeously written, quietly surprisingly stories I’ve ever read, with memorable lines and characters.

I’m so curious to read Gentlemen Jim.
I didn’t realise Beach Reads was enemies to lovers. Now I’m definitely picking it up!! One of my favourite romance tropes (alongside fake dating! haha)
My TTT post
I too enjoy the haters to lovers trope.
Amy Harmon’s books are all so gorgeous and deserve rereads.
That is so true!
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Beach Read!
Me too, especially since I’d read some mixed reviews.
I’ve been meaning to get around to Daddy Long Legs for some time now. Glad to hear that it’s worth a read and maybe even a reread!
I listened to it on audio and was completely charmed. I think the narrator contributed some to my feeling for the book.
Don’t love everything about “You Deserve Each Other,” but I think I like it more than not, and 100% YES! It’d make THE best Netflix (or something like this) rom-com. Also, still have to read something by Amy!
Amy has some great contemporary romances, which might be a great intro for you. I tend to prefer her historical novels, but she excels in all genres.
