Top 5 (books you would re-rate) Tuesday

Ooh, this will be really interesting because I don’t really do a lot of re-rating, so I don’t know if I would really (re-rate). I love rereading, but usually I only reread books I loved or if I don’t remember much. I don’t reread to re-rate books.

So when I thought about books I would re-rate, I thought I would only have like 2, but I pushed out 4! Better than nothing, right?

Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads hosts this now and go look at the books she would want to re-rate!

The Selection by Kiera Cass – I’m a huge fan of allowing yourself to love cringey books, and when I read this series, I knew this would be one of them. But even though I love to have and read cringey stories, that doesn’t mean I should rate them highly, or at least that’s what I’m feeling. I… rated (I think) most of the series 5 stars πŸ˜„ but if I had to go back, I would maybe push it down to 3 or 4? I’ve evolved as a reader and therefore wouldn’t feel the same way about the series as before.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman – So I really really love the movie. And I think I was upset when I read and it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind πŸ˜„ I can’t even remember if I finished it or just rated it low because I was upset πŸ˜„

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer – I did have this rated highly, and then somewhere along the line re-rated the entire series 1 star? here’s the thing – I’ve realised I do really like this series πŸ˜„ I’m set to reread this series… the magic word is ‘soon’ πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ but I’ll definitely re-rate it once I do.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – I’ve always loved the covers of this series and decided to try the books out after seeing the movie. I don’t know if it was because I watched the movie first or if it wasn’t the right time for me or eve the right book. That’s why I’m wanting to revisit this book – and then the other books in the series – to see if anything will change.

There you go! Like I said, I was amazed to find four books, and probably more if I really look. Are there any books you want to revisit for the purpose of re-rating them? Have you re-rated a book? Tell me about it down below!

    Omg I remember being really upset when I realized that Wybie from the Coraline movie did not exist in the Coraline book. 😭 I loved him so much in the movie! I still gave the book high stars but I think it had less to do with the book and more just my love for the movie making me soft haha. Great picks!

    1. He’s not in the book? No, he’s my favourite character! Alongside the cat πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„ I really skimmed it, I guess.

  2. the selection made it to my list also!! I totally agree; nothing stopping us from reading cringey series but a 5 star rating is pushing it πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    1. I can’t recall why I rated it so high? πŸ˜‚ Maybe it’s because it’s a competition and I was (probably) watching America’s Next Top Model at the time πŸ˜‚

      The Selection is definitely a good cringey series, but not really a good series πŸ˜„ I can’t wait for the adaptation!

  3. Hahaha, I’ve been reading a very hyped cringey series recently, and while a lot of my friends are rating it 5 stars, I haven’t been able to give it more than 3 stars per book. So I totally get it!! I re-rated Twilight a couple of years ago, and made them all 3 stars, except for New Moon, which I think I rated 1 star. Man that book was so full of angsty-dramatic teenage feelings πŸ˜‚

    1. Yeah, that’s a lot of my feelings – Even though I do love the series, they definitely won’t be rated higher than 3 stars πŸ˜‚
      New Moon is totally angsty and not a favourite of mine – like Edward decides he wants to die because he hurts Bella? πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚
