Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's TTT is a rewind where we can pick any previous topic we want. I've chosen...

Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

1. Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen
This was my favourite book as a teenager, and I read it two or three times. I've been wanting to reread it for awhile, but I've been putting it off because it was my favourite book and I was so tied to it for emotional reasons that I'm afraid of how I might feel about it now as an adult (I talked more about it in February in my To Reread or Not to Reread discussion post). I'll be reading it soon as part of the Spring of Sarah Dessen Reading Challenge.

2. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
This is in my top 5 - maybe even top 3 - contemporary YA books ever. Funny, romantic, and emotional, with great characters, fantastic little extras (the drawings and playlists are classic), and a super fun road trip, I've been wanting to reread this book ever since I first read it in 2011.

3. Splintered by AG Howard
I just read this one a few months ago, but it was an instant favourite, and I had to buy it after reading the ARC because I knew I'd read it again. I'll likely wait until closer to the next book comes out before rereading this one - if I can wait that long!

4. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
I read this one in my teens, along with the next two books. Now I want to reread them and then read the final two books. This was on my summer reading list last year but I never got around to it, so I'm hoping for this summer!

5. The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
A pre-blogging favourite, and my introduction to Sarah Addison Allen, who is now one of my favourite authors. This book was so amazing and I want to reread it so I can finally write a review.

6. The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis
Next to Harry Potter (which I was going to put on this list, but if you know me at all, it's probably obvious, since I talk about Harry Potter all the time, plus I've already read them several times, and it feels like a given that I'll read them again), the Chronicles of Narnia is probably my favourite fantasy series. The seven books aren't that long, so I figure it shouldn't take me too long to reread them, and I'd really love to be able to write reviews for them.

7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Another pre-blogging favourite, and another favourite series. I read these just before I started blogging, and I seem to have forgotten quite a bit, so I'd like a refresher. 

8. Zel by Donna Jo Napoli 
My favourite fairytale retelling. I read this book a couple times in my late teens/early twenties and have been wanting to reread it again (re-reread?) for awhile. I don't think any of my blog friends have read this book and it's a shame because it's so beautiful and dark and haunting.

9. On Fortune's Wheel by Cynthia Voigt
I read this one in high school and I honestly don't remember anything about it except that it rekindled my love of reading at the time. I own it and have been wanting to reread it for years, and I'm determined this is the year!

10.Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
I read this shortly after the movie came out several years ago. I don't normally see a movie before reading the book, but I wasn't reading much at the time, so when I fell in love with the movie I knew I had to read the book.

What are some books you want to reread?
If you're participating in Top Ten Tuesday this week, be sure to leave a link below and I'll stop by and see your TTT rewind!



  1. I read Tuck Everlasting in 6th grade! I fell in LOVE with the story, and I remember being so excited when they made the movie. Of course, it's one of my favorites, because Jonathan Jackson AND Alexis Bledel? Yes please.

    And GAH, THG. Let me tell you, I SCREAMED during the CF trailer the other night. Have you seen it yet? We should discuss. I want to re-read the books, but I get so MAD every time I look at Mockingjay. Now I'm so close to the series, and Gale thanks to mine and Kay's fics, I'm not certain I would survive a re-read!

  2. I rarely re-read books since I'm so busy reading new books, but there are definitely some I really need to re-visit, like the entire Harry Potter series. It's just hard to make the time when I have so many books sitting around that I need to read for the FIRST time. Agh!

  3. I love rewinds because it's so fun to see what others choose to do as their list.

    I'd love to reread The Hunger Games as well, especially before Catching Fire comes out. The only other one I've read on your list is Narnia and I'd reread a couple of those, but not all of them. It wasn't may favorite series.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! And, I love your layout, especially the color!

  4. I'm re-reading The HUnger Games series this year before the 2nd movie comes out. I don't re-read often, but try to get to a few each year.

  5. There are so many books that I'd like to reread. The Hunger Games series, for one, before the movie comes out, so then I can actively recall and hope for specific parts in the movie.

    But, also The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. I feel like it's been AGES since I read the first two, and I'd kind of like to see where the characters are now.

    Ooh. And Tuck Everlasting. I adore that book and movie.

    My TTT.

  6. 'The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' series is seriously underrated. I love the girls so much - Bridget has always been one of my favourite fictional characters! I wasn't crazy about the final book but I really love the others.

    I reread The Hunger Games series several times last year - I became a little obsessed when the movie came out! It's far, FAR from perfect but the stuff I love (read: Gale) I really really LOVE!

  7. Everybody keeps talking about how they loved Splintered. I'm reading it right now and so far it has been a huge let down which I will talk more about in my review. Great list. I love Someone Like You. I read it during 8th grade and I fell in love quickly. I have loved almost every Sarah Dessen book I have read except Keeping the Moon.
