Come discuss with us!
If you didn’t know, Teen Librarian Toolbox is hosting the #SecondChanceChallenge, which is a challenge for readers to try rereading books they put ‘on-hold’ or DNFed, and ultimately giving them a second chance to win you over. (Full details in the post!)
So I’m going to list down books I want to try reading again for this challenge. I’ll be reading them from May 1st to May 9th, and possibly even keep going even when the challenge is over, because I know I won’t be able to finish all of these in just a week.
Side note: I’m totally open to buddy reads if anyone wants to read these with me!
REALLY WANT TO TRY AGAIN
1.) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I got through about half of the book before putting it down. But I really, really want to try again because there is potential for me to love this book.
2.) Eon by Alison Goodman: Again, I got through half of this before putting it down for some unknown reason.
3.) The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: Not sure how I far I got through with this, but I feel the same way about Daughter of Smoke and Bone with this.
4.) Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo: Loved the world building in the first book. I’ll be buddy reading this with my friend Riz!
5.) Unhinged by A.G. Howard: I already know how this trilogy ends (it ends horribly–at least for me), but I still want to give it a go.
6.) Rebel Heart by Moira Young: Loved book one, but unfortunately can’t remember anything that happened in it, so when I tried reading this… Eek. Confused as hell.
MIGHT TRY AGAIN
1.) The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan: It’s RICK RIORDAN, guys. But for some reason, I’m just not too keen on this one… I tried reading it, got through half before thinking that it wasn’t for me.
2.) The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith: I read a few pages and was like, no, no, no. But I almost always give books the benefit of the doubt.
3.) Burn for Burn by Jenny Han: I read a few chapters of this, and it was just screaming NOT AN AIMEE BOOK in all caps at me, but I have seen some fabulous feedback of this from trusted reviewers.
Have you read any of these? PUSH ME TO READ THEM. Or buddy read them with me!
