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!
- The Secret History by Donna Tartt
- All of Harry Potter
- The Cemetery of Forgotten Books novels by Carluis Ruiz Zafón
- Some of Murakami’s novels
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
- James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox
- An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro
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.
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.
The first two books (Shadow of the Wind and The Angel’s Game) are just a blur…
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…
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.
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.
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.
One of those books that just begs to be reread once in a while.
I only read this last December but I loved it so much that I already want to reread it.
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.
