It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday again! (TTT is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) This week’s theme is “Books I Could Re-Read Forever.”
I like this category because I am a huge fan of re-reading my favorite books. I don’t know if I will necessarily be re-reading these forever (because, let’s face it, our tastes change sometimes), but these are some of the ones that I’ve re-read the most over the last few years. (Yes, I cheated and listed whole serieses as one book. But how can you just pick one book in a great series?)
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – I cannot praise this book or Mr. Gaiman enough.
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – These are definitely my most re-read books, by far. It’s amazing that my copies haven’t fallen apart yet.
The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien – It’s been ages since I’ve re-read the LOTR books. I am way overdue. (Fun fact: I am not a big fan of the movie versions.)
The Queen of Hearts series by Colleen Oakes – This is a most deliciously unique re-telling of Alice in Wonderland. Probably one of my favorite re-tellings period.
Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier – “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderlay again.” *swoons*
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson – I only discovered this one a few months ago, but since then I’ve already re-read half of the chapters. This book is turning out to be immensely helpful when I am in a funk and need a laugh or something to relate to. Jenny Lawson holds a permanent spot on my nightstand.
The Elsewhere series by Jacqueline West – This series is so adorable. It ties my love of art, magic, and animals together nicely.
Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – This was the book that popped my Gaiman cherry. I am eternally grateful.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – Oh Jane, you’re so awesome. (Fun fact #2: I have a Jane Eyre quote tattooed on my arm.)
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon – This is just a fun one to re-read every now and then. It’s perfect for anyone who loves books and a little mystery.
What are your favorite books to re-read? Are any of these on your list?
