Top Ten Tuesday: Wanna Repeat?

A feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic: Top Ten Books I Want To Reread: 
  1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: I loved the world building in both this and Fire. I can't wait to revisit this enchanted world.
  2. Fire by Kristin Cashore: As stated above, I enjoyed the setting immensely. I enjoyed Fire just a smidge more than Graceling.
  3. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins: Oh Katniss! You were so brave. You wore so many of the worlds problems on your back. I can't wait to revisit your strength and strong sense of self.
  4. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood: This was my first taste of Atwood, and one of my first tastes of dystopia. This book was a cornerstone in my future reading selections, and a true testament of why I adore Atwood.
  5. American Goods by Neil Gaiman: This was my first Gaiman book, and by far my favorite. The mixing of mythologies was brilliant. Ever since I turned the last page, I have been wanting to pick it back up!
  6. For Keeps by Natasha Friend: This was such a fun and colorful read. It reminded me very much of my favorite tv show Gilmore Girls. I would love to revisit this one!
  7. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan: Hilarious! This book had me laughing aloud and quoting sections to my friends. I definitely need to reread this down the road!  
  8. The Handmaid's Tale by Maragret Atwood: Atwood at her best! This most arguably is my favorite Atwood novel to date.
  9. All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab: This was recommended to me via goodreads by another blogger. It was a true tale of mystery and discovery.
  10. The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling: Back when I was in college, I would re-read the Harry Potter books during my summer breaks (which were limited as I took summer classes). As the series progressed and I started reading more, I stopped going back to this beloved series. It's safe to say that I have only read the last 3 books once. I would love to revisit this entire series at some point. 

     So what books have you enjoyed and would like to re-read?


    1. I have listened to Graceling a few times and finally bought a copy of the book and plan on rereading it shortly before Bitterblue is released. Just adore Katsa and Po.

    2. I can't wait for Bitterblue to be released. It feels like I've been waiting for a long time.

    3. I need to reread HG and CF before I finally sit down to read Mockingjay. I feel like there's so much I need to refresh before I take that final leg of the journey.

    4. Wow, those books do sound great! :) The Harry Potter series, I really need to start reading this series. :)

    5. The Hunger Games seems to be on a lot of list. I enjoyed it too. It's not on my list though. Great selection you chose.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Here's Mine:
      My Top Ten Tuesday

    6. What a great list! Of those I've only read The Hunger Games trilogy. Looks like I'll be adding quite a few of these to my TBR!

      New follower :)

    7. There is that title again. The Hunger Games, and as before, I'm going to have to dive on in the book so i will know exactly why it makes all book list.

    8. I've read a couple of the Harry Potter books but the rest from your list I have yet to read. I do want to read Graceling since I've always heard good things about it.

    9. we a few similar books on our list. i've been wanting to read fire because i loved graceling so much. thanks for checking out my list. :)

    10. You've got a fun list here today--I mostly don't like to reread but there are a few books that I like to revisit. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

    11. I've read Graceling a couple of times already. SO GOOD!

    12. I haven't read many of these books, but I think I have to revisit The Handmaids Tale. I only read it as a required read in school, which probably made it less enjoyable, but I know that it's a really loved book.

      I also have to read the HP books. I think I've only read them all just the one time, but I'd like to go back and read them all back-to-back.

      I love your blog design by the way. It's absolutely gorgeous!
