Top Ten Tues: Books I Could Re-Read Forever

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?

  1. I totally agree with the Lord of the Rings, I’ve read it several times myself. I would also add, for me, the David & Leigh Eddings serieses “The Belgarid” and “The Malloran” (check the spelling on those names). A total of 10 books that I’ve read at least 5 times over. Excellent stories and rich characters. Just my favorite of all time. Sadly I gave my copies to my now ex-daughter-in-law, and never got them back. Think it’s time to visit the local used bookstore, since they’re not available in any electronic form I’ve been able to find.

    1. This is why I am always hesitant to lend books to people. You never know if it’ll be the last time you see that book again. I’m kind of amazed at all the books that don’t exist digitally yet.

  2. I wasn’t sold on The Graveyard Book when I first started it, it’s slow at the beginning but it’s a beautiful story and I was so glad I continued it.

    1. Thanks! My biggest problem with the movies is that they felt too long and dragged out. Sometimes it felt a little too action heavy also, which took away from some of the overall theme of the book.


      1. I haven’t either. I haven’t reviewed him because all of my reviews would be “Ahh… he’s amazing!” and “I love him so much!”

        Maybe I’ll just do a post with mini-reviews one day!
