Top Ten Tuesdays (8)


Top Ten Books I Want To Reread

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme held by the fabulous Broke and the Bookish

I like this week’s Top Ten because instead of talking about newer books I love, I can talk about older ones I haven’t read in years!

Here are some truly wonderful books that I need to make to make time to revisit (and you should to!):

1) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I saw the new film recently and read a less than great contemporary version and both have made me desperate to re-read this classic!

2) The Host by Stephanie Meyer

So I’m not a Twilight fan at all, but I actually rather enjoyed this Sci-fi(ish) book by Meyer – I’d like to re-read it again now I’m older and see if I still like it or not.

3) Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn

For some reason I never got round to reading the rest of this series. Its been many years since I read the first book and I’d like to re-read it and finish the series of.

4) Wind Singer by William Nicholson

Great fantasy/dystopian series for younger readers and far too long since I read it.

5) Sabriel by Garth Nix

Excellent books by Garth Nix, I’ve wanted to read this again for a while but a friend has my copy!

6) The Named by Marianne Curley

Guardians of time, who go back in history to stop Chaos from taking over? Why wouldn’t anyone want to read this series?

7) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I like to re-read this every year or so and love it just as much as the first time I read it.

8 ) Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I’ve actually only read this series once! I definitely need to re-visit it!

9) Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

I haven’t read these since they first came out and now there’s no more films, its time to indulge in these again!

10) Sally Lockhart series by Philip Pullman

I’m in the mood for a good Victorian mystery after reading A Spy in the House and you can’t beat Philip Pullman for that!

What books are you looking forward to re-reading?

  2. Jane Eyre was first on my list too, and it has been a long time since I read Pullman’s Lockhart series but love it and would love to reread them too.

  3. I have read two on your list. I would re-read The Hunger Games but it’s not on my list. Harry Potter and The Hunger Games seems to be prevalent on people’s list today. I haven’t read the others on your list, but nice to have new books to explore.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and Pride & Prejudice are all great reads. But you definitely reminded me about the Abhorsen trilogy by Garth Nix! Can’t wait to reread them :)

    Wow. I was barely able to put “Hunger Games” down for a second after the first few pages got me completely hooked. Normally it takes a week to read a book, but now I read this in 24 hours. Suzanne Collins here has an immediacy to it that, when combined with the very dramatic life-or-death plot, is incredibly compelling. It’s entertaining, and incredibly disturbing all at once. They say great art leaves you changed after you experience it… and this book definitely did that. Suzanne Collins has, with one amazing work, propelled herself onto my top shelf.

    Have a nice day,
