It seems like there are more new releases coming out each month than ever before, and it’s easy to get caught up in the hype. But there is something about winter that makes me crave something cozy and familiar. A sure thing, so to speak. And for some reason, historical. My list won’t be comprised of only historical, but there a few on here! Here are six books that I want to re-read in 2018.
Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold by Ellen O’Connell – Re-reading Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold is really just the tip of the iceberg. While this is a gorgeous story and tied with Beautiful Bad Man for my favorite, I want to re-read all of the books I’ve read, and finally fit in the ones of hers I haven’t read. I love this authors writing, and I cannot wait to devour oldies and newies from her.
Paradise by Judith McNaught – This book is my favorite romance novel of all time, and before I was a book blogger, I re-read this book quite often. All the shiny new things have kept me from that in recent years, but I am determined to remedy that this year.
Flirting with Danger by Suzanne Enoch – I have equal love for Suzanne Enoch’s historical romances and contemporary romances, but there is something about the Samantha Jellicoe series that I just love. Rick was my first billionaire, and he’s still one of my favorites!
An Affair Most Wicked by Julianne MacLean – OK. I’m just going to say – there was a steamy scene in this book that was so hot I really shouldn’t have been reading it on an overnight shift. But I did, and I haven’t been able to forget a particular scene since. I just can’t believe it was as hot as I remember. I must re-read to confirm.
Lord of Fire by Gaelen Foley – Ok, the entire series really needs to be re-read at this point, but again, I remember this book being so taboo and hot. I remember being so smitten with Lucien. And it really is a shame I’ve never re-read this. This series was Gaelen Foley at her best, and I wish she would return to historical with a twist of intrigue. No one writes it like she did.
Cry No More by Linda Howard – This book was not titled with the reader in mind, because it is sure to elicit buckets of tears. It has been years since I’ve read this book, and while I don’t remember it clearly, I am still shaken if I think about it long enough. I want all the feels and snotty nosed tears that came with this book all over again. I want to be immersed in this world, broken apart, and put back together again.
There you have them. Six books I am determined to re-read this year. I would love to know if there are any books from your past that are haunting you enough to put aside the new releases and pick up an old favorite!
