A lot of people ask me why I would re-read a book if I already know what happens. If it is a good book, then what happens should not matter; it is the journey of the characters and the plot that matters. Below are my favorite YA and middle grade books that I can re-read forever, with number one being my absolute favorite.
1. Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
This middle grade fantasy series is my favorite of all time, and I have probably read the series at least 50 times! I will still love them and treasure the series even when I am 100 years old! Each book in the series comes out a year apart, so what am I going to do while I'm impatiently waiting? Obviously, I re-read all the others!
2. Every Rick Riordan Book!
3. Disconnected by Lisa M. Cronkhite
This YA realistic fiction book was sent to me by the author, and I have probably read it 10-15 times. I love the internal conflict and that particular angle of bullying. All the plot twists and turns are entertaining to discover again.
4. Stronger Than You Know by Jolene Perry
I love this book so much! It felt so real and I could connect to Joy so much! She is an inspiration to all! I have probably read the book about six times now.
5. The Rule of Three by Eric Walters
I love this trilogy and own the books! I've probably read the series over the years about 10 times. I love the characters, the plot development, and the intriguing concept!
6. The You I've Never Known by Ellen Hopkins
Considering the fact that this book is 608 pages, I've only read it three times, but I do hope to read it much more in the future! I loved Ariel's memorable journey of finding who she is, and shows a lot how factors in the environment shape who you are.
7. Gone by Michael Grant
This is my favorite YA series! I love the concept of no adults, and the good vs. evil complex. Some are more tense than others, but this is a really good series for intense action lovers!
8. Losing It by Erin Fry
I really love this book! I enjoy the inspiration sense of it and the message of never giving up and persevering. Bennett is a character to admire. This optimistic, leisure read is great for all ages!
9. Speechless by Hannah Harrington
I've only read this twice, but I really, really, want to read it again, and I can remember it crystal-clear! This is the type of story you won't forget. It is about finding strength in silence, and one's personal moral values.
10. Consider by Kristy Acevedo
I own the book, and it was sent to me from the publisher. I have read it about seven times. The whole concept of having to decide to leave the planet through a vortex is intriguing enough, even without the addition of severe anxiety.
