I don’t re-read books very often. My life is just far too busy for this. Urm, no. I just have a short attention span at times. I usually have to wait a very long time to re-read a book as I remember way too much. This is more so with books than with movies. Anyone out there who feels the same? Anyway, here are the books that I’ve re-read in the past. I only re-read Ink Exchange a month or too. Comment and let me know which books you’ve enjoyed re-reading.
Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
This book sort of picked up from where Marr ended in its predecessor, Wicked Lovely. It is not a direct sequel, but instead, it is thought of as a companion novel. Ink Exchange has three new characters take the role of narrator. First and foremost is The Dark King, Irial, then also Niall and Leslie, the ‘broken’ girl. It is a novel laced with intrigue and romance, darkness and sexiness. (Yes, I really just wrote that!) I re-read this one before re-reading the first in the series as this is one of my favourites in the series.
Here is the plot if you don’t get it from my short review:
Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I don’t know many people who haven’t heard of Percy Jackson. It even had its own movie. I will refrain from commenting about it, however. There are only so many ways of describing disappointment.
Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’ stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves
I had a Meg Cabot phase so please forgive me for the lack of diversity here:
Teen Idol by Meg Cabot
I’m not sure why I had such an addiction with this book. It was well before I discovered the brilliance of Rick Riodarn, and a very long time before the rise of dystopian novels, and sparkly vampires, or even sadistic fey. It was a good novel at the time and I probably still own my copy. I still like the values of this novel, no matter what. Luke taught our girl a few things.
I don’t remember enough to give you my opinion of the character except for that Luke is hot, especially when shirtless.
High school junior Jenny Greenley is so good at keeping secrets that she’s the school newspaper’s anonymous advice columnist. She’s so good at it that, when hotter-than-hot Hollywood star Luke Striker comes to her small town to research a role, Jenny is the one in charge of keeping his identity under wraps. But Luke doesn’t make it easy, and soon everyone—the town, the paparazzi, and the tabloids alike—know his secret…and Jenny is caught right in the middle of all the chaos.

Love You To Death/ Shadowland by Meg Cabot
I remember this series all too well, hehehe. Suze can see ghosts, and there is a hot, depressed, 150 year old (or so) dead guy in her new bedroom. Poor her! 😛
This book was very gripping. Suze is a strong character who doesn’t take crap from anyone, least of all the dead. If the whole seeing-the-dead thing isn’t bad enough, she is trying to adjust her life in California as her mother has remarried. This novel is filled with action and suspense, and it will leave you wanting more. Much more.
Susannah Simon- Call her by her full name and you die. Having been born in New York, adjusting to a new State is quite something for Suze. Dealing with ghosts even somehow gets trickier. She is awesome, and not much of a whiner. What more can you ask for?
Jesse- This guy is probably my favourite ghost of all time. He is really old school. He is both caring and kind. Their friendship was rather unlikely, given how their first meeting went, but I’m glad that he helped her, even when she insisted she was fine.
Father Dominic- He becomes rather like her mentor in all things ghost related. I think he is rather optimistic about things, but I can understand why he may view things the way he does. I greatly respect him, and I feel bad for him as his student is very stubborn.
Suze is a mediator-a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won’t leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn’t seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.
But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it’s not that easy. There’s a ghost with revenge on her mind.and Suze happens to be in the way.
When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot
Then something happens that guarantees Jess will be one of the in-crowd…at least until her newfound talent ends up getting her dead.
