Top Ten Tuesday REWIND! Ten Books I Want To Reread

Top Ten Tuesday This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a rewind: Pick from previous topics that you want to do again or may have missed. Since I only joined in on the fun last week, I had a LOT to choose from. And I picked…

Ten Books I Want To Reread

I’m not a big rereader. But the more I read, the more I want to reread at least some books. There are plenty of books that I LOVED… but I couldn’t tell you what happens in them if my life depended on it. It’s really kind of embarrassing. So here’s my top ten, not in any particular order!

  1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  2. We read this book in high school for English class. I LOVED it. Now that I’m reading The Goldfinch I really feel like revisiting The Secret History.

  3. All of Harry Potter
  4. These books were such an important part of my childhood. I reread them here and there, bits and pieces, random books I felt like rereading, but never all of them in the right order.

  5. The Cemetery of Forgotten Books novels by Carluis Ruiz Zafón
  6. The first two books (Shadow of the Wind and The Angel’s Game) are just a blur…

  7. Some of Murakami’s novels
  8. I have a tiny little obsession with Haruki Murakami’s novels. Truth is, with many of the books I have read can’t quite recall what happened. So I want to reread books like A Wild Sheep Chase, South Of The Border, West Of The Sun, Hear the Wind Sing

  9. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  10. I really enjoyed this book, and I read it quite ‘recently’ in 2011, but I think I’ll enjoy it more AND understand it better if I reread it now.

  11. James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
  12. When I was little, my parents read Dahl’s books to me. James and the Giant Peach was my favourite, but I also want to reread others like Matilda, the BFG and the Witches.

  13. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
  14. This is one of my favourite books I ever read. I am currently participating in a read-along of the Odyssey and I hope to read the Illiad sometime after that. When that’s finished, I’ll definitely be rereading The Song of Achilles.

  15. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  16. One of those books that just begs to be reread once in a while.

  17. The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox
  18. I only read this last December but I loved it so much that I already want to reread it.

  19. An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro
  20. People keep telling me they loved this, while I recall it as ‘meh’. I read it in high school and I think the time just wasn’t right.

    1. Same same! I am really curious what I’m going to think about it THIS time I read it. I mean, I remember the story… but not any of the details. Already looking forward to it 🙂

  1. American Gods!! How I loved that book. It’s probably my favorite Gaiman novel. And yes, Pride and Prejudice is really “One of those books that just begs to be reread once in a while.” Hm. I haven’t read An Artist of the Floating World but I really liked The Remains of the Day (and Never Let Me Go was okay too) The Song of Achilles!! I really want to read that one. Great list! 🙂

    1. From what I remember of An Artist of the Floating World it was quite different and far more ‘Japanese’ than any of his other novels. I loved Never Let Me Go, and I still have to read The Remains of the Day… I think I’m going to move that one up on my tbr list 😉

      Ohhh please read The Song of Achilles! It’s amazing (and perfect for your lgbt challenge)!

    1. Exactly! Also I loved how it was ‘growing along’ with me 🙂 Read the first four books when I was 11 or so, and then the rest was published at just the right time!

      I love your list too! Tried to comment there but I don’t have any of the accounts to comment with 🙁 Can only do name/url… Sorry!
