Top Ten Tuesday: Books I have re-read.
(The actual topic for today is "Books I Could Re-Read Forever" but I opted for a broader interpretation since I rarely reread books, so I no idea if there are any books I could re-read for ever.)
1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
To be honest I have never actually read the print edition but have listened to the audiobook many times and always look forward to listening to it again. This book would most likely fall into the category of 'I could reread forever.'
2. The Ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen McCullough
I went through a phase where I was so smitten by this book, that I reread it for several years in a row
3. A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
I loved the mini-series (circa 1980) so I found the book which was published in the 1950s. I reread it several times, delighting in it each time until the last time. I remember thinking that I no longer needed to reread this book, so I touched it and said goodbye.
5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Not sure how many times I have read it all the way through, but I do love this one and find my way to it often.
6. Persuasion by Jane Austen
I can't ever decide which I like better this one or P & P. Who cares? Reread them both!
7. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
One of the funniest books every written. It is worth a reread now and then when I am feeling like my reading selections have veered too far into the seriousness realm.
8. Looking for Alaska by John Green
This is the first YA novel I remember reading after I became a YA librarian. It blew me away. It still does every time I reread it.
9. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
I first read this book in 6th grade. I reread it several more times that year. When I reread it to my daughters it wasn't as magical as I remembered but now I want to reread it before I see the movie.
10. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (all seven books)
I first read these favorite books as a young girl. Then reread them as a teenager, When my children were young, we read them together, and then again together when they were teenagers. They love the series, too.
11. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I just decided to reread this series today and so I am starting back at the beginning. (Yes, Carly. I am finally rereading these books!)
I am sure that I have reread a few other books here and there but not many.
There are so many books that I haven't
read it is hard to want to reread others.
