Top Ten Tuesday/ Scared To Reread

Hosted by thatartsyreadergirl.

September 10: Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why (maybe you’re scared of it, worried it won’t live up to the hype, etc.) (submitted by Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea)

I want to do this with rereads because I don’t have enough books on my Goodreads tbr to create a good list of ten.

Outspoken: A Decade of Transgender Activism and Trans Feminism
Outspoken: A Decade of Transgender Activism and Trans Feminism
by Julia Serano

Why: I would love to reread this book since It’s about activism and that something that I want to try and do in the future. However, when I read this the first time, a lot of the words entered one ear and went out the other.

Death Can Wait
Death Can Wait
by Evan Bond

Why: This book is very well done but gave me nightmares for a few nights after I read this.

The Vegetarian
The Vegetarian
by Han Kang

Why: I didn’t really understand this book or the reasons behind it, so I doubt it I will feel any different the second time around.

Closure, Limited and Other Zombie Stories
Closure, Limited and Other Zombie Stories
by Max Brooks

Why: I doubt it if I read this book the right way, but I have no will to reread it.

The Blonde Formula
The Blonde Formula
by Federica Brunini, Becky D’Ugo (Translator)

Why: As much as I want to support Maltese authors, I don’t like this book enough to give it another read and I don’t own this book anymore.

Gone
(Gone Saga #1)
by Stacy Claflin

Why: This book gave me the creeps, but I was given this by the author and can’t afford or have access to the rest of the series.

The Transgender Manifesto
The Transgender Manifesto
by Ian Thomas Malone

Why: The Transgender Manifesto by Ian Thomas Malone represents the trans community, but, I think it will trigger feelings I don’t want to feel.

Nevada
Nevada
by Imogen Binnie

Why: I don’t know why but this book reminds me of an ex-girlfriend and the good times we had together and I feel that rereading this book will send me in a swallow mindset where I don’t want my mind to go.

Sex in C Major
Sex in C Major
by Matthew J. Metzger

Why: I love this book for its weirdness, but it has a lot of sex scenes that will set me off.

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
Fifty Shades of Grey
(Fifty Shades #1)
by E.L. James

Why: I won’t like it as much as my 17-year-old self did, because me back then didn’t care how bad the writing in this book is. However, I now with the lens of an author does care.

  1. All of your reasons for avoiding rereads make a lot of sense. Sometimes a book is perfect for someone in one season of their life but not necessarily what they should read before or after then.
