Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Reread Forever!
This is going to be a difficult list for me! I’m not the biggest rereader, I have a couple of series I have reread many times already. But, besides of those I don’t reread anything. I will get a bit creative and include books/series I think I will reread sometime in the (near) future.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Today’s theme is Books I Could Reread Forever! Let’s get started!
1. Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling
This is such an obvious one for me. I really don’t know how many times I already read it, I guess 8 times. I read the first book in 3 different languages (Dutch, English and French). Still every time I reread this series it feels like I find new things to love about it. It’s easy to say that I’m a complete Harry Potter freak. It’s been about 3 years since I did my last reread so it’s almost time to read them another time!
2. Eragon – Christopher Paolini
Another series I reread many times. I’m currently doing a reread (I think it’s the fifth time) and I just finished the first book a couple of weeks ago. I’m really looking forward to starting the second book, because it’s my favourite one in the Inheritance Cycle, but I don’t want to rush it! Rereads need to be savoured.
3. Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
I read the first book 4 or 5 times already. It absolutely is my favourite book in this series which is a bit strange for me because most of the time I like the first book in a series the least. I read the 2nd, 3th and 4th book 2 times. I’m currently reading the fifth book and I really don’t want this series to ever end and I love the fact that the books are so massive.
4. A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah. J. Maas
I only discovered this series last year, but I’m quite obsessed with it. I haven’t done a reread yet, but I’m probably going to reread the third book soon because I feel like I read that one so fast I forgot half what was in it in the next week already. I’m normally not a fan of over the top romances and after liking this, but the romance in this book has something that I really like although it’s really over the top. I don’t like the main romances in throne of glass all that much so I don’t know what it is with this book!
5. Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor
I read this book on my e-reader and it instantly was my favourite book of 2017. The second book “Muse of Nightmares” comes out in October (I’M SO EXCITED) and I just ordered the hardcover edition to reread this book before the next book is released. The cover of Strange the Dreamer is so beautiful and absolutely perfect.
6. Burn for me – Ilona Andrews
I read this book too recently to be completely sure if I will ever reread it. This is another author (a duo in this case) I only discovered last year.
7. The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien
I read this book 10 years ago and I probably forgot half the story by now. I think I will do a reread so time when I’m finally ready to read the complete Lord of the Rings. I have read part of the trilogy but I just couldn’t manage to read the whole thing.
8. A Street Cat Named Bob – James Bowen
Before I read this book I never thought I would ever say I could reread a non-fiction book. But, I’m fairly convinced I will reread this book in a couple of years. it’s such a feel good book that is also kind of deep and is without a doubt my favourite non-fiction book ever. I’m still so grateful for the friend who recommended me this book.
9. The Kite Runner – Khaled hosseini
It’s been so many years since I read this book and I forgot so much about it. I was also kind of young when I read it and I think I will feel so different about many things. It’s such a beautiful book and a must read for everyone!
10. Inkworld – Cornelia Funk
I read this book when I was little (9 years old I think). I loved the story buy now I noticed that I never read the third book in the series. I really want to read it and it’s possibly a good idea to reread the first two books because I don’t remember 90% of what happened!
