Hi bookish fans!
I haven’t been around for a while. Several things – I haven’t read anything super great until the last week, and I despised the Top Ten Tuesdays for most of the month of February. Combined with the last few weeks of my classes and I’ve been wiped out. But, I saw this TTT and I wanted to squeal in glee!
This TTT is discussed by That Artsy Reader Girl if you want to do one yourself to check her out!
This week is Top 10 Books I could Re-Read Forever! AHHHHHHHH!
- Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling.
Period. All of them. I actually re-read the entire series every year. I’m sure this is on many people’s list but I love everything about this series and I cannot pick just one over the others.
2. House Rules by Jodi Picoult.
This is my favorite stand alone book and the last 3 years I have re-read it (currently reading right now!). Picoult is my favorite author and I will devour any of her books, but this has become my favorite book and I love it with such an intense passion.
3. The Giver by Lois Lowry.
This story gave me all the feels as a child and it still does today. Even when the movie came out (I know not as many people are fond it) I wanted to consume myself with the story. It’s simple, meaningful, and wonderful to read every time.
4. Second Glance by Jodi Picoult.
Told you she was my favorite. For years and years this was my “favorite” book. You know how many of us connect to that ONE story that we need at a time in our lives? This was that book for me and the sadness of Lia’s life resonated with me at a time I was really miserable and needed to know I wasn’t alone – which it did. I’ve read this story so many times I had to buy a second copy because I mostly destroyed the first one.
5. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
Doerr, for me, is an exceptional writer. His way of words makes my soul happy and then combine that with a historical fiction about WWII and basically you have my heart on a silver platter. Plus, the cover is to
DIE for. I will always re-read this book.
6. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
Didn’t I just mention I love beautiful writing and WWII? Well. Here we are. I was seeing this story all over the place a few years ago and didn’t necessarily want to pick it up. Peer pressure forced me to, though, and I absolutely love this haunting story. READ IT!
7. The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.
I’m not much for poetry – I want to love it and sometimes I find an author who blows my mind. Robert Frost is my favorite poet and this book of his poems makes my heart chilly and warm all at the same time.
8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
Again and again and again you will find me glued to WWII historical fictions. Telling the story from Death’s perspective and the gut-wrenching ending are enough to demolish my soul – and I will let you as I pick this book up over and over.
9. The Silence of Trees by Valya Dudycz Lupescu.
WWII historical fiction. Surprise. I picked this as my Kindle First book several years ago and when I read it…I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The story is told from a woman living in the Ukraine during WWII. AHHH. The feels. I wanted everyone to read this when I first read it years ago.
10. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux.
Probably not a common book to love but I love the dramatic aspects of this book and even the slow parts. It isn’t a major read and can be finished so easily.
- What is on your list?
- Have you not read any of these and want to?!
