Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Please take a moment to pop over and say hi!
I missed last week’s topic, and that makes me really sad. But February has been a big bag of awful, and I am hoping March will be better! Today’s topic is Ten Books You Could Reread Forever and I don’t know how easy this is going to be. Before last year I used to reread books a lot. Then I stopped, because I realized that I was falling out of books I loved, and I was using up time that I could be using for new books. So, I am actually going to split this up and kind of combine last week’s topic which was Books I Am No Longer Interested in Reading. THIS WILL WORK.
Five Books I Could Reread Forever
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
The rest of these books are a little too heavy for me to reread a lot, but I could reread book one all the time. It is light and fluffy and just a sweet story about a boy magician.
The Starlit Wood edited by Navah Wolfe and Dominik Parisien
Short story compilations count, right? It is like 20 books in one!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This atmospheric novel with a nod to my favorite perfume oil company will always be one I can reread forever.
Written in Red by Anne Bishop
This entire series is great, and I really love the development of the characters. While it does tackle some heavy issues, Bishop does so in a way that I really respect and enjoy.
In Death series by J.D. Robb
These are my candy books. I can mindlessly munch them forever. They don’t tackle any substantial issues as we know them today, they have a healthy dose of smut in them, and I quite enjoy them.
Five Books I Used to Reread A Lot, But No Longer Do
Newsflesh series by Mira Grant
I love these books so much. But because of how the government is featured in the story, I find it very hard to reread it since Darth Cheeto was elected in the states. And I am not even American!
Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
I need to do one last reread of these books, but then that is IT. They are massive books in a massive series and I don’t have the time to waste with my TBR as big as it is! Also, for many years in high school, these books were ALL I read.
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
Same reasons as Wheel of Time, really. These books are huge and so much happens in them. They are good books, but they take me SO long to get through. I would honestly rather spend that time reading something new.
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I have reread this book several times, and I even used a quote from it when I spoke at my grandmother’s funeral. And then someone told me how problematic it was. While I still cherish the memories I have of rereading it, it is not one that I am likely to read ever again.
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
I discovered this series a little later than most – around the age of 18. I recognize now the problematic aspects, but at the time I loved the books so much. I used to reread the entire series at least once a year. It would take me about a week to do, and it actually got to a point of being a comfort thing for me. Several years ago, before I was big into blogging, I was doing a reread and I felt so disconnected to the story. I haven’t picked these books up since.
So awesome nerds, what books could you reread forever? Do you have any that you used to reread and now you just, don’t? Comment below, and don’t forget to link me up to your TTT!
Stay bookish, lovelies! ♥
