Top Ten Tuesday is weekly blog event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s post is all about your favorite rereads. I found this topic a little hard to write about because I didn’t want to just talk about books I’ve already raved over but at the same time it’s hard not to?! So I tried my best to do a mixture of books I’ve mentioned are my favorites and some books that I’ve liked more recently. Though it’s interesting whilst going through my lists of books I noticed just because I liked a novel, didn’t mean I’d actually want to read it more than once.
1. Persuasion by Jane Austen.
I think I might have mentioned this book a time or two? 😉 Persuasion is actually my favorite of all Austen’s works, and I think it’s her best book by far. The characters are so relatable and I feel this book was her most realistic love story. I’ve read this book at least twice, probably more.
2. Shouldn’t You Be in School? by Lemony Snicket.
I am a huge fan of all of Snicket’s books, but this one was my favorite in his newer series. I actually think I haven’t finished the series yet, which makes me feel horrible because I loved this one so much. I’ve only read this book once, but I can’t remember some of it anymore. But hey now that means I have to reread them all!
3. The Living Reed by Pearl S. Buck.
I’ve talked before about my love for both historical fiction and Pearl S. Buck, but this book is one I’d definitely read over and over again. And in fact have read like three times now.
4. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
Just thinking about this book gives me all the feels. I’ve probably read this book four times now? That doesn’t sound like enough, but it’s probably the truth. The fact is I’ve read it so many times I’ve forgotten when I read it first, all I know now it’s possibly my favorite classic.
5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
We all knew this book was going to be on here. 😀 I’ve read this book twice, and I was actually thinking just the other day that I was due for a reread soon. So this post has definitely made me motivated to get it from my library. I know, sadly I don’t own it. What can I say, hardbacks are too freakin expensive and that’s all I can see to find! I don’t really like ebooks either…
6. Borne by Jeff Vandermeer.
Yes, another book I need to own. Also unlike the first five books on this list, I’ve only read this book once and that was just last year. But I’d really enjoy reading it a second time because I think I’d catch some things I didn’t see before.
7. Next Year For Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson.
Again I’ve only read this book once, but I honestly would have sat down and read it a second time after I finished it, had I not shoved into my partner’s hands and demanded he read it immediately. 😀 And then it had to go back to the library, but that’s another story.
8. Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau.
I think I’d really benefit from reading this book again, I really enjoyed it the first time after all.
9. A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin.
I love this series a lot, but I think this is actually the only one I’d read more than once. I really loved the POV’s in it, it had most of my favorite characters and none of my least favorite characters, plus the ending was pretty good too.
10. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee.
This book was just too much fun not to reread! I’m so glad I own a copy, thank you OwlCrate I am ever in debt to you.
Don’t forget to leave a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post, I’d love to read it!
