Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Love But Need To Read Again

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog event that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s prompt is about books that you enjoyed reading but can’t remember very much of now. I have a couple of these books that I’ve been thinking about recently, because I really enjoyed them. Hopefully I get to reread them soon.

1. The Carnivorous Carnival By Lemony Snicket.

I loved this book, it was my favorite of the whole Series of Unfortunate Events.  I think what I loved best was that it explored some really serious ideas in a story that was still entertaining and not confusing for younger readers.

2. Ender’s Game By Orson Scott Card.

I read this book years and years back and I remember really enjoying it. But since it’s been so long I don’t remember as much of it as I wish I did.  I remember going to see the movie soon after I read it, and that’s helped me keep track of some of the plot.

3. Bridge to Terabithia By Katherine Paterson.

I can’t even remember how old I was when I read this book, but I remember how heartbreaking it was. I’d really like to read it again to remember more of the story.

4. Pat of Silver Bush by L.M. Montgomery. 

Ugh I love this book so much! It’s my favorite of Montgomery’s novels, but sadly I can’t remember very much of it anymore. Pat was more of a kindred spirit to me than Anne of Emily was.

5. The City of Ember By Jeanne DuPrau.

I read this back in 2010 and I remember it being such a different world than I had ever read, and the rest of the series was interesting as well.

6. A Girl Called Thursday By Lilian Harry.

Another book I read about 8 years ago, and it was a really fun read. Historical fiction is my favorite genre.

7. Middlemarch by George Eliot.

When my family lived in St. Lucia this was one of the only books I owned, and I read it at least twice during our stay.  I just recently got a new copy of it and I’m excited to read it again. Hopefully it’s as great as I remember it being.

8. The Princess and The Goblin By George MacDonald. 

All my childhood my mom read to us kids, at night before bed, during mealtimes, she read to us constantly. This was one of the many books she read to us, and we all loved it so much.

9. The Witch of Blackbird Pond By Elizabeth George Speare.

I don’t remember when I read this, or why but I do remember that the story was fascinating. It’s funny because I actually don’t think I liked the main character, but we’ll see what I think once I read it again.

10. Our Mutual Friend By Charles Dickens.

This was another book I read in St. Lucia. One of my sisters and I had a collection of books by Charles Dickens and this was my favorite.

  1. I read Bridge to Terabithia, City of Ember, and Ender’s Game years and years ago as well! I remember liking them, and I still remember most of what happened in the first two books in the Ender’s Game series. I also read the following two books, but hardly remember any of them. Your post just makes me want to reread the tetralogy again :”)
