Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and Bookish

It seems fitting that my blogging come back would feature a list- and not just any list- a list featuring books I would like to reread.

So here I am and here you go.


1) The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling- I know this may seem like a bit of a cope out. But really? What do you expect? I would absolutely love to reread this series. It's a no brainer really.

2) If I Stay by Gayle Forman- I loved this book and as heartbreaking as it was. I would very much like to experience it all over again. Gayle Forman has a really amazing way of telling a story. This one stayed with me for a long time after I read it.

3) Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan- More than rereading this one, I would really love to re-listen to this one. MacLeod Anderson and Nick Podehl do an amazing job narrating this one. Such a fun story.

4) The Silver Lining's Playbook by Matthew Quick- I love love loved this book. I thought it was brilliant! So good. I loved the way Quick portrayed mental illness. funnily enough, I get to reread this one this month- it's our book club pick.

5) A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness- I just read this a few weeks ago and almost as soon as I was done reading it, I wanted to start all over again. What a beautiful story! If you haven't read this book. What are you waiting for? You need this in your life.

6) The BFG by Roald Dahl- Can you believe that I have only read this book once, but it remains my favourite Roald Dahl book ever. And this book would not take very long to get through. One afternoon is all I'd need.

7) The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- I think I really want to reread this one, because I hated it the first time I read it. I mean I really disliked it. I thought Daisy was one of the worst characters I'd ever had the misfortune of reading about. I wonder if I'd experience the book differently knowing that I am not going to like her.

8) This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales- There was something really special about this story. One of the most authentic coming of age stories I have ever read. I even gifted this book to my non reader friend, because the story spoke to me so.

9) Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta- Every time I mention this book, I feel like a broken record. But Jellicoe Road has to be one of my most favourite books and I have only read it once. This seems completely wrong to me somehow.

10) Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi- This one I would like to someday reread. I really didn't like it when I read it. But so many people love it! I think I must be missing something. So I haven't written this one off yet completely. I am willing to give it another go.

That's my list. I hope you enjoy. Make sure to leave links to your lists below.

~Happy Reading Everyone!

  1. I've read Gatsby three times, and each time I read it I love it more. I wasn't too impressed by it when I read it the first time, but I was only a Junior in high school. You aren't meant to like the characters in this book, I don't think. They're selfish and unlikable and real.
    I love Fitzgerald's writing and really recommend his other novels as well.
    Great List!

  2. I'm with you about A Monster Calls. I've recently read it too and already would love to revisit it! It's such a moving book!

  3. I hated The Great Gatsby too! It was really the first classic I read and I hated it so much... The characters, the fact that nothing really happens...
    I did love Silver Linings Playbook, it was brilliant! And I am one of the many people that enjoyed Under the Never Sky as well. If I stay and This Song Will Save Your Life are both on my TBR list. I've heard mixed reviews on the first one, but the latter everyone seems to love!

    Great list!

  4. You are brave. I don't think I can ever reread A Monster Calls.

    Jellicoe Road makes such a great reread!

  5. I haven't read This Song Will Save Your Life. I don't know what the hold up is. Lol And Jellicoe Road is a given. However, I chose a different Marchetta book instead.

  6. Jellicoe Road almost made my list! If I hadn't stuck with 10, it would have been #11! :D

  7. I'm with you on If I stay and Jellicoe are excellent!!! :D

  8. I'd reread Harry Potter, If I Stay, and Under the Never Sky too. And like you, I didn't enjoy The Great Gatsby when I had to read it back in high school. Unlike you though, I wouldn't want to reread it :P

  9. I need to read A Monster Calls...it's definitely on my TBR list and I saw Jellico Road at the library as an audio, so I'm sure I'll get to it soon. I don't really re-read books, but I would definitely reread the HP books...because they are just so magical.

  10. My rereading book is totally Graceling. Whenever I'm pissed at books I've recently read or just feel like I've read too much weirdness for a lifetime I just pick that book up. Or actually I just open my Kindle, but kinda the same thing I guess.


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
