Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want To Re-Read! As a blogger, I feel like there’s so much emphasis on reading ALL THE BOOKS, and with new books coming out all the time it doesn’t lend itself to rereading all that often. SO, I’ve decided to take part in the 2015 Re-Read Challenge, hosted by Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With. There’s not a lot of details out yet about the challenge, but it’s certainly one I’m keeping my eye on. This topic couldn’t have come at a better time really! So here we go…
1. My Fave Jane Austen Books
2. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I haven’t read all of the Harry Potter series in a long time – I re-read Deathly Hallows last year but it’s been a good seven years since I last read the series from start to finish. I’m ready to experience the magic all over again!
3. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
I’ve only read this series once, over a five day period last year between Christmas and New Years. I’d really love to read this again, I’m sure I’d pick up all sorts of details I missed the first time around.
4. Saving Francesca & The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta
I haven’t read Saving Francesca in a number of years now, the cover always seems to put me off which is a shame given how great a book it is. As for The Piper’s Son, I’ve only read it once and don’t really remember it all that well, except how much I loved it.
5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
This is another book I’ve only read once, but The Book Thief demands to be read more than once! It’s too good not to be re-read over and over again…
6. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
These books are both books I’ve also only read once, but they were so fantastic I just have to read them again. I’d love to do a trip one day like Amy & Roger, and Second Chance Summer has that lovely bond of family – they’re too good to resist!
7. Little Women and Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott
8. My Fave Maureen McCarthy Books
Maureen McCarthy was one of my favourite authors growing up, and it’s been a while since I revisited her books. Chain of Hearts, When You Wake and Find Me Gone, and Queen Kat, Carmel and St. Jude Get a Life are all on my re-read TBR.
9. Anne of Green Gables series by LM Montgomery
Add this series also to that every growing list of Classics collecting dust over the past nine years, and they’re much too good for that!
There you have it, that’s my list! While I’ve only picked 9, I kinda cheated because it’s definitely more than 10 books! How about you, what did you have on your list? Have you got any others that you could recommend to me?
