Top Ten Books I Want to Reread
hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
With so many new books to read, it’s hard to go back to old favourites. There are some books I want to reread so badly that I’ve considered turning it into a challenge just to give myself the excuse to do so. Here are the top ten books/series on my “please let me reread these soon” list.
10. Seven Kingdoms series by Kristin Cashore
I know I just read these…but my goodness they are so good. I try not to read the same book twice in a year so that personal rule is literally the only thing keeping me from grabbing them and devouring them once again.
9. Lord of the Rings series by J. R. R. Tolkien
I haven’t read these books since the movies came out. Now that I’m older, I wonder if I would appreciate them more? Probably not. But I figure I should give it a try before The Hobbit comes out.
8. Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series by Ann Brasheres
I still haven’t read the newest one (no spoilers please!!!), but I’ve been waiting to reread the originals first. Unfortunately, I lent out my copies and am not quite sure what happened to them…
7. An Abundance of Katherines & Paper Towns by John Green
My friend bought me these for my 20th birthday. I am now 22. I really, really want to reread these. Especially Paper Towns so that I can try to understand why it’s some of my friends favourite of Green’s novels.
6. Everything by Tamora Pierce ever
No really. I want to reread all of her books. I guess I could get away with not reading the Beka Cooper trilogy because I JUST read those, but everything else…I really want to read. Especially her Tortall series.
5. Feed by Mira Grant
I’ve been wanting to reread this since I purchased Deadline and now Blackout is out and I still haven’t found the time to read either! It’s getting to the point where I feel guilty when I look over at my book shelf.
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I’ve had this book circulating through all my friends, and for the first in over a year it is back in my hands. Of course, I immediately wanted to devour it, but sadly I have several other books with due dates sitting in the wings. Étienne will have to wait.
3. The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan
I’ve yet to read the two newest in the series because I’ve been waiting for the series to end so that I can reread everything and blow through what will probably be close to 20,000 pages in one (really long) go. But now I can’t find the time to reread the earlier ones! (Plus most of my copies are falling apart. Thankfully I picked up a couple at a recent book sale and I managed to dig out my old copies from storage, so maybe I’ll start this sometime soon…)
2. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I’ve been wanting to reread these for awhile now, but I didn’t want them to be too fresh in my mind before watching the movie. Now that I’ve seen the movie I want to reread them even more. It’ll be my first time rereading since I’ve read Mockingjay, and I wonder what new things I’ll pick up on.
1. The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
I started rereading Philosopher’s Stone in line at the Deathly Hallows 2 premiere, but haven’t had the time to read any further. This is seriously depressing because I haven’t gone back to Hogwarts by book in well over two years. If I don’t reread these soon I may cry.
