Books I Will Only Read Once

There are books I really enjoyed, but I don’t or can’t read them ever again. I have nothing against these books nor do I dislike them, so I don’t foresee myself ever rereading them.

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

Throne of Glass is one of my all-time favorite series, but The Assassin’s Blade is so extremely sad. I read this book last and knew that Sam was going to die and Aelin would eventually have her happy ending. It didn’t keep Sam’s death from being so upsetting. I don’t think I will ever choose to put myself through that again.

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

A Study in Charlotte wasn’t my favorite mystery book, but I still enjoyed it. However, since I’ve read it once, the mystery would no longer be a surprise to me. Now that there is no surprise and I’m not overly attached to any of the characters, I don’t have any reason or motivation to reread the series.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner is an amazing and beautiful story, but it is one of the hardest books I have ever had to get through. It is dark, horrible, and depressing, yet I have never read a book like it before. I love this book, but I will never be able to read it again after knowing all of the upsetting things that happen throughout the entire story.

Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Sarah’s Key is a beautiful, but heart-wrenching novel about the Holocaust. I enjoyed this book, just like I did with the others, but it has such a painful story and ending that I don’t think I could put myself through again. Just thinking about the story hurts; however, I will forever consider Sarah’s Key to be a phenomenal book.
