Re-Read-a-Thon Spring 2016!

Yay! It's that time again. I'm ridiculously excited about this, although you wouldn't know it from the length of time it took me to actually sign up. I haven't had much time to read lately, much less blog, but hopefully that will change in time for me to get some much needed re-reading done!

I took part in the first re-read-a-thon whilst hiding out in my car during Scout Camp, and managed to read two books during the week long event - Never Let Me Go and The Night Circus.  This time we've been allocated a full ten days, although I'll still be working ten hour days, taking Russian lessons, running a Scout Group and volunteering for a legal advice charity. I'm aiming for three books over the ten days.

My TBR is below. I may or may not stick to it, who knows!?

The colour theme was unintentional yet oddly pleasing.

I'm looking forward to rereading all of these books, possibly with the exception of The Picture of Dorian Grey, which I didn't like all that much the first time round. It's been eight or nine years since I made the attempt though, and it's possible some of it went over my head. Time to give it another go!

Of them all, I most want to reread Ready Player One (I know I only read it last year, I know, but it's SO GOOD) and The End of Mr Y. I haven't really given that a second thought since I read it (and loved it), but it caught my eye on the shelf this evening and now I'm pretty desperate to pick it up!

I'm also quite looking forward to reading Perfume, but we'll see how dark and miserable I feel when next week rolls around.

Alternatively I may read something completely different...

What book are you looking forward to rereading?



  1. You literally picked the two that I'm most excited about you re-reading to be most excited about! I have Dead Clever by Scarlett Thomas on my TBR :-) so excited you're in for this,although way to slow down! Working,Scouts,Russian AND volunteering?! Busy girl!

    1. I know, I keep being lectured about it from numerous quarters, don't worry :p

      I'm really excited about the re-read-a-thon. DEFINITELY The End of Mr Y, though. Definitely.

  2. HUSH WITH THE DORIAN GRAY HATE WOMAN. I will defend my beautiful boy to the end. Obviously I liked Perfume too, such a gorgeously evocative novel, if a bit squicky in parts.

    I think at the moment my definite to-reads are Dorian Gray and Tex (one of S.E. Hinton's Non-The-Outsiders novels that no one seems to have read). Then I have a heap of about 15 more because I couldn't choose. A little Austen, perhaps? A modern lit-fic? Swallows and Amazons is on there. A book-about-books which I might just read in bits over ALL THE DAYS. Who knows?! Bring it on, dudes, BRING IT ON.

    1. I don't think I remember enough of it to fairly state that I hate it, really. I remember not liking it at the time, but it was a long time ago. I'll do my best :)
