Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Books I Could Re-read Forever.” I love to re-read books, especially favorites. There are some that I’ve read more times than I can count and always find something new. Here are the top ten books I’d be happy re-reading forever, in no particular order. As always, covers/titles link to Blog/Goodreads/Amazon(aff).
Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: I don’t know what it is about the series, but I love it. I love it’s corniness, it’s sparkly “vegan” vampires, and snarky wolves. I typically read this series once a year around Halloween, but haven’t been able to the last two years. I’m thinking a reread is a must this year.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: I fell in love with this trilogy when my son was small enough to nap on my chest. I binged the entire series in less than a week and read it twice to see what I may have missed. Now I read it whenever I need to get out of a slump. Every time I read it, I catch something I haven’t caught before, whether it’s a look shared between two characters or a memory that is reflected on later in the series. I love it!
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: The first time I ever read this book was after I had a really bad breakup. I was young and thought I was in love and didn’t want to leave my room. It was right before I started high school and so I locked myself in my bedroom and proceeded to read this book in all of two days, only emerging for food and shower. I loved every word. I have since reread it more times than I can count. I love each of the sisters, their relationships, and Jo. Each time I read it, I relate to different characters and scenes differently. It’s truly a classic that I feel everyone should read at least once.
Harry Potter (all of them) by J.K. Rowling: I adore this series. I like the idea of good fighting evil. And I love sharing it with my son now. We are rereading them with the illustrated versions (which y’all are perfect!!!) and he loves them as much as I do.
Imdalind series by Rebecca Ethington: Guys I first read Kiss of Fire in 2013. That was a REALLY long time ago and y’all it is just as good now as it was the first time. I own this series in paperback, ebook and audio. I love every version AND the author is continuing the series by revisiting the world through a different character and I’m ecstatic!!! I’ve read this series more times than I can count (at least twice a year) and am so attached to these characters and the world.
Splintered Trilogy by A.G. Howard: I have actually never reread this one, BUT I intend to this year. I loved this trilogy. It’s my favorite Alice retelling and I cannot wait to reread it. I’m making plans to dive in soon.
The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole: The first time I read Poison Princess I threw my kindle at the end. No joke, and then I picked it up and immediately started rereading it. I read it three times in a row before finally thinking I should put it down. Since then I’ve reread the books up to the latest one three or four times. I love the intricacy of the series, the world building, the fantasy and dystopian mixed together. It’s perfection 😀
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: This book will never be old. It’s a true classic as it will always be relevant. The themes Austen present in the book, the romance, and yes the pride and prejudice are still relevant in today’s society. I love it!! I love being able to read this book and draw parallels to how a relationship works in today’s world.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: What can I say about this series? I love it! I love the world, the characters, and the climax that is coming later this year. I’ve reread the series three times up to Tower of Dawn. I haven’t read that one yet. I’m planning to binge the series prior to the last book’s release this summer. Anyone want to join me?
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: And yes Maas is getting on here twice. Why? Because I own all the books in paperback, ebook, and audiobook. And I have read them multiple times. I love this series! The characters, the relationships, the loose retellings….all of it! I am SO excited she is continuing with this world in new books 😀
