Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate- head on over to their blog and sign up.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want To Reread. I don’t get the chance to reread books as often as I’d like. I’m motivated to reread a book if:
- It’s part of a series and I want to refresh my memory before the next book is released
- I tore through the book quickly the first time and want to savor it again
- It’s a favorite book that I never get tired of
- The story is complex and I missed some of the nuances the first time around
- There’s a movie adaptation coming out soon
- It’s a seasonal book that I read every year
In no particular order, these are the books I’d like to reread:
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This book just makes me happy, and I’m planning to “reread” it via audiobook when it is released in October in that format.
3. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand – Would like to catch up on this book before Hallowed is released in January
4. Chime by Franny Billingsley – Loved the writing in this book and would enjoy taking my time reading it a second time.
5. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh – Think this would make a good Halloween reread with all of the Poe references.
6. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – Another perfect book to reread during the winter holidays.
7. Divergent by Veronica Roth – This one meets several of my reread criteria: a favorite book with a sequel due out next year that will eventually be made into a movie.
8. Carrie / Salem’s Lot / The Shining by Stephen King – I went through a Stephen King phase a while back, and these are some of my favorites. Am curious to see how they hold up. And it’s also a great time of year to bring them out again.
9. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Such a gorgeous book. It’s a little soon to read it again, but I’ll definitely look forward to revisiting it.
10. Blood Red Road by Moira Young – One of my favorite dystopian books of the year, and I’ve been itching to reread it. When I read it the first time the dialect was hard to get used to at first, but I’d like to read it again with fresh eyes.
