Writing_prompt_bookWriting Prompt: Books I wish I could read again for the first time

Did you ever read a book that was so good, you almost wish you hadn’t finished it . . . so you could read it again for the first time? Only a few books are that special. Harry Potter, The Giver, or The Hunger Games (for ages 12 and up) come to my mind. Not only were they great while I read them, but they had crazy endings, so it would be good not to know before starting to read them!

What about you guys? What are the books YOU think are so good you wish you could read them again for the first time? Let us know in the Comments below!

    Well, there’s the Percy Jackson series,the Heros of Olymus series( Can’t wait for the 4th book), the Pegasus series,and the Twice Upon A Time series. Those are all books I wish I never finished. They were great. Oh yah, there’s also The Westing Game. I have a whole lot more books i wish i didn’t finish, but those are the ones i wish i didn’t finish the most.

    I just finished reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio I think, and I could not put it down. Once I finished it, I was so sad it was over. I wanted to keep reading.

    The Hunger Games. I absolutely loved the books but when I tried to reread them for a second time…well let’s say I only had about two chapters left of Mockingjay that I didn’t finish. I already knew the ending! Also I wish I could read the Outsiders again. (I’m kind of obsessed with it now.) I cried at least three times while reading. Stay gold!you guys. High five to those who know what I mean.

    Some books I wish I could read again for the first time are Dragon Slippers and Leven Thumps. But, unlike most people, I have read Fablehaven and Harry Potter many times, even with the known ending. They are just that good!

    A book wish I have never finished reading was White Dolphin by Gill Lewis. I could not remember how sad it was to find out about what would happen next. I cried and cried during my reading. Some people even saw me crying at school during free time! O would want to keep that book close to me forever. The last book I wish I have never finished was, Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. That book really made me cry. I would never forget the day reading that book. I mean all these books I read made me feel so dramatic, energetic, in all kinds of ways. Reading books is what I will always do.

    The book I wish I hadn’t finished was The Georges and the Jewels. I wish I hadn’t finished it, because Abbey has such a strong bond with the horses, and it’s has such suspense (even though it’s not a mystery) that it’s so hard to put down (I finished The Georges and the Jewels a while ago, though)! I couldn’t wait for the next book! Secondly, there is The Leanin’ Dog, because it had a WONDERFUL meaning to it ,and REALLY showed the friendship of a boy and his dog!

    I wish I had never finished reading The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs. It’s about a boy who reads about the 7 wonders of the world, and decided to find 7 wonders in his town (Sassafras Springs). He goes around, and finds people who have these seemingly useless, old things, but which have amazing stories behind them. I wish there wasn’t only 7, I wish there was a million, so I could spend all day reading them, and for years to come!

    I so wish I could read the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series all over again. The end of Mark Of Athena was just so sad and there’s like half a year left before I get to read House of Hades. I really want to read the series again but it won’t be so fun as it was the first time. :(

    I wish I hadn’t finished reading:
    Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena. Because it had SUCH a heart wrenching soul breaking ending and it nearly killed me when I found out that i would have to wait A WHOLE YEAR to find out what happened next.
    Obviously I wish I hadn’t finished reading Harry Potter because firstly: these are books that can NEVER be taken away from my heart and secondly: I was SO young when I finished the last book (about nine years) that I now wish that I could get the chance of reading the last epic battle between Harry and Voldemort again for the first time, not knowing what could happen.
    Lastly I wish I hadn’t finished Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns (not a children’s book) because all of Hosseini’s books are SO sad that you have no choice but to cry yet he is such and AMAZING author that you can’t help it either.
