Books I Want to Reread This Summer

While the seasons will not technically change for a while longer, I get out of school next Friday!! This means that I should definitely be studying for my exams or working on all of my final essays, but instead, I am laying in bed thinking about all of the books I want to reread this summer. This is a very long and semi ridiculous list, but that should really surprise no one. I spend most of my time rereading because I do not know how to read new books, it is a foreign concept apparently.

Anyways, here is my long list of books and series that I really want to reread in the next three months (which are theoretically listed in the order in which I will reread them, but like, it is very possible I won’t stick to that).

Elementals by Brigid Kemmerer


It is May and I haven’t reread any of this series except for the first novella, which is honestly a wild concept for me. I am constantly rereading it, as I may have mentioned once or twice or a thousand times by now, and by this point in the year I normally would’ve reread at least the first book by now. As of now, all I have done is reread a couple scenes from each book during my so called “elemental emo hours” where I get very concerned about Nick Merrick’s emotional and mental health. This is all very odd for me so I need to rectify that by reading the entire series in full sometime soon lol.

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare


In case you didn’t know, I have a problem where I cannot stop rereading the shadowhunter books, so all of them will be on this. I plan on audiobooking this series the week after I get out of school as a fun treat for actually like, finishing this semester, a feet that has seemed very much impossible for months. I can’t wait to reconnect with Henry and Charlotte and Jem and Gideon and Gabriel and all of the other lovely characters from the London Institute.

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston


Okay, so I know that I like, just read this (and posted a review! which you can read here if you’re interested), but June is pride month and I think I have to reread this one for pride month, like, I don’t think there is another option. I also have a desperate need to annotate a physical copy of this book so during June I will be wearing my Claremont 2020 tee shirt and annotating this book and its going to be a great time, I can’t wait.

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare


Hi, my name is Arin, and I have this problem where I am constantly rereading The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I have already read City of Bones once this year during a readathon, but I plan on picking it back up and then attempting to make my way through the series (for the sixth time??) this summer. I have a desperate need to reconnect with Clary Fairchild. I haven’t read a book with her in it since March and that is frankly unacceptable, so I must reread these.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth 


Okay, I know I just made a post where I said that this wouldn’t become a frequent reread because of how heavy it is, but then I remembered that June is pride month and well, here we are. I most likely won’t physically read this again since the last time I did it took a month, but since I have the audiobook I will listen to it. I can’t wait to have my heart absolutely obliterated by Cameron Post again.

The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare


Oh, the Blackthorns. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this series. Before the last book came out this series was set up to be my second favorite shadowhunters series but after the last book I am kind of just “eh” towards it. Either way, I am hoping that rereading the series in full for the first time will help be better figure out my feelings and hopefully find out that I like the last book more when I am not reading it in 24 hours while stressing over finals and the fate of Clary Fairchild.

I also keep having the random urge to reread the first book in this series like, all the time, so I am hoping that is a good sign that I will enjoy these books more as I reread them. I do want to like them, I just have some issues with the last book? Its just a weird situation and I am hoping that a reread helps that out lol.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling 


For a person who rereads books literally all the time, I have only reread Harry Potter once. I audiobooked them all over the period of like a year (?), I don’t really know, I listened to them whenever my holds from the library came through. Either way, I do love this series. I feel like I don’t have the deep emotional connection to it like everyone else does, it definitely wasn’t the series that got me into reading or any of that, but I do really like these books and these characters. I haven’t physically read these books since I read them for the first time in third grade, so I am excited to re-experience that.


Okay, well, I could probably keep going with this list but I would like to think that at some point I will eventually stop reading books I’ve already read and read new ones. I don’t know that that will ever actually happen, but a girl can dream, right? What about you, are there any books you want to reread this summer? Do you also have a problem where you are constantly rereading books? Let’s chat in the comments!

  1. I’m thinking of rereading The Miseducation of Cameron Post again for Pride month as well!! That’s the only book on this entire list that I’ve even read before (except for a couple random Harry Potter books but I’ve never read the entire series). I love that you reread so much!! I think it’s fun even though some people think its redundant. Rereads will NEVER disappoint!!

  2. I’m actually doing a full Shadowhunters re-read at the moment starting with TMI. I’m on City it Glass and I’m still so obsessed with this series. It’s such a great series for a re-read!
