Books I Want to Re-Read

**I originally used this topic as my freebie, but alas, it's this week's topic as well! I decided to re-post it with a few edits.**

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

There are books that you love, and may even be your favorite, but you know re-reading them won't be the same. And then there are those books that you know will only be better the second time around. These are some of those books:

1. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
3. Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
4. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer (Want to read this? Enter my giveaway to win a previously read copy!)
5. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
6. The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
7. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
8. The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
9. The Hunger Games Series  by Suzanne Collins
10. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

All of these books have great plots, but I think the reason I really want to re-read them is because I miss the characters.

Which books do you want to read over and over again?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. Great list- I have read and really liked almost all of the books on the list. I have not read And then there were None yet.

  2. Hunger Games is really fun to re-read!

    Check out Sash's Top Ten Guys Who Didn't Get The Girl!
    Also check out our GREAT giveaways!

  3. Little Women is one of my favourites! And Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter of course.

    Check out my Top Ten love interests over here!

  4. I agree with you, Harry Potter gets better every time you read it. And I used to love Little Women as a kid!!


  5. I hardly ever re-read, but I know I want to re-read HP now that I know the ending. Great list! My list is my Top Ten Children's Illustrators.

  6. You’ve got some very worthy re-reads! I’m hoping to go watch The Help this weekend – heard it’s very loyal to the book. Also, I’ve been very impressed by the two Geraldine Brooks books I’ve read so far. I’ll have to move People of the Book up a few spaces!

  7. Missing the characters is a great reason to reread, great list.

  8. I love your selections! I hope to reread some of these great novels as well.

  9. I've read Harry Potter twice and that's enough for me...There's so many books in the world I have to really love something to re-read. I do pick up my favourite Sookie Stackhouse books now and then but they're so quick and fee-good and I would like to re-read Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series after the final book is out.

  10. Great list! There's quite a few books on your list that would be on mine too - The Help, Little Women (although I did reread it earlier this year), The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, And Then There Were None...

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday Freebie!

  11. I like this list idea! Harry Potter is a great series for rereading. Makes me want to pick it up again soon.

  12. Great list! I'd definitely put The Help on my re-read list too (though not just yet), and Little Women is always wonderful no matter how many times you read it.

  13. Interesting choices. When there is a book that I really want to reread, I usually assign it to my students. I have probably reread The Handmaid's Tale, White Noise, and The Scarlet Letter the most. I'm going to reread Frankenstein this semester.

    Come check out my list for the week at The Scarlet Letter.

  14. I'm reading The Help for the first time now and really enjoying it. I did re-read Little Women recently, as I read it to my grandmother, who has poor eyesight. It was fun to spend time with the March sisters again.

  15. It's been a long time since I've read Christie!

    Recently I've started rereading the Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov. Couldn't resist it!

  16. A lot of the books on your list have been on my radar for a while, but I've never picked them up. I've only read The Hunger Games and I am signed up for a The Help read-a-long in November.

    Come visit my list at The Scarlet Letter.

  17. And Then There Were None was one of my favorites in high school - I should pick it back up as well!



  18. i just ordered the hunger games. i've heard such rave reviews for so long now that i think it's high time i get to reading it. i'm so excited!


Your comments always make me smile. <3
