So today’s TTT is about books we’d like to reread. I will admit: I am NOT a rereader. There are so many books and so little time, and so I read books once and that’s it. However, there are several exceptions.
The books I choose to read again (and again) are special to me in some way – I identified with one or more of the characters, the plot was spectacular, or the overall tone of the book struck me. So the ten books I’ve chosen are books that have made some sort of impression – books I can’t get out of my head.
So without further ado, I give you the top 10 books I’d like to reread (in no particular order):
1. Clockwork Angel (Infernal Devices Trilogy) by Cassandra Clare – I think Clare really knew what she was doing by the time she began writing this trilogy. Also I love the ties to the Mortal Instruments series.
2. The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle) by Maggie Stiefvater – Beautiful novel.
3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore – I like to curl up on Friday nights and reread my favorite passages of this book.
4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Maybe I won’t cry this time.
5. Cinder (Lunar Chronicles) by Melissa Meyer – I think it’d be fun to reread these books simply to catch all of Meyer’s foreshadowing.
6. Gregor the Overlander (Underland Chronicles) by Suzanne Collins – I was a fan of Suzanne Collins before she was cool. This was pre-Hunger Games, my friends. I have fond memories of reading this series with my dad.
7. The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart – Another book I read quite a long time ago. These characters are witty and intelligent (they’re geniuses) and I loved the mystery and the riddles.
8. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin – Required reading in 8th grade and one of my favorites. Definitely quirky and eccentric, but that’s why I like it.
9. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – No explanation necessary. I learn from Rowling’s books each time I reread them.
10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – Such lovely writing. Such a haunting story. <3
