Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

I am a huge fan or rereading books that I love.  I think I have reread the Harry Potter series about 7 times.  (and need to reread again)  But here are some others that are definitely worthy of a second-or third- reading.

1.  Shadow of the Wind by Carols Ruiz Zafon

Maybe I will reread all three?

2.  The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I try to reread these every few years, and it has been awhile.

3.  The Historian by Elisabeth Kostova

I know I loved it when I read it, but I don’t remember why.

4.  Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice

With her new Prince Lestat out, I need a refresher.

5.  The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

My daughter will be reading this in the spring for school and I want it clear in my memory so we can discuss it.

6.  Tender is The Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I read this-pretty quickly- a few years ago, and it left quite an impression on me.

7.  Northhanger Abbey and 8.  Sense and Sensibilty by Jane Auster

Two of the few by Austen that I only read once

9.  The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende

The first book I read by Allende that began my love for her writing.

10.  The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

What?  It will only be the 4th reread.  They are good, quick, and easy.  AND Mockingjay comes out in a few weeks so I need to brush up.

  1. I can’t believe that, with the exception of The Hunger Games, I haven’t read a single book on your list for the first time, never mind a reread! If you think that they are reread worthy, then I’m going to have to add some of these to my TBR.

  2. I would happily re-read any/all of the books on your list! I also remember loving The Historian, but can’t remember any of the details. (Vampires… libraries… ??? Anything else?) I would really love to re-read the LOTR series soon. I tried to convince my son to read LOTR with me, but he declined. I guess I’m on my own! 🙂 Great list.

  3. I imagine once I’ve read all Jane Austen’s works I’ll probably try to reread some or all of them again. I’ve read Northanger Abbey but haven’t gotten to Sense and Sensibility yet.
