Top 5 Tues: Books I Want to Re-Read

The topic for today’s Top 5 Tuesday has arrived at the perfect time. I was actually planning on writing a post this week about books that I want to re-read soon. Then, voila, T5T arrived and made life easier for me.

(For those who are unaware, Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Shanah, the  Bionic Bookworm. Go check out her site to see the full list of topics coming up if you’d like to participate.)

Top 5 Books I Want to Re-Read: 

Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – Now that I’ve re-read Neverwhere I feel like I need to go back and read this one again, also, since I originally read both of them around the same time.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova – This book was one of my favorites back in college. It’s an excellent blend of historical fiction and horror. It’s also one of the few vampire books that I’ve ever really enjoyed, aside from Dracula.

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black – This is a different faerie story, set in the same world as The Cruel Prince. It’s been years since I read it though and I don’t really remember much about it.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien – I love these books and usually re-read them every few years. It feels like that time again.

Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes – This is my favorite Alice in Wonderland retelling. That’s reason enough.

 

Do you like to re-read books? Which ones are you planning to read again?

    1. It happens. I’ve re-read things and didn’t think they were as good the second time around. Usually it works out well though. I like re-living the excitement of books, especially ones I haven’t read in a while, is a fun experience.
