Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and Bookish) was an easy one for me this week! I’m a huge fan of rereading books because I read so quickly and rereading allows me to find things I missed the first time around. I have a whole shelf on Goodreads dedicated to books I want to reread, so it wasn’t hard for me to round up the novels I’m most looking forward to rereading.
Gemma Doyle Series by Libba Bray — I read this series A LONG TIME AGO, and I remember loving it, but I really have no idea what it was about. So… Reread!
Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling — We will not talk about how many times I read Sorcerer’s Stone (
17 times), but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to reread, especially since the movies have distorted the real story for me.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta — I just finished this novel. No seriously, I finished it right before I started writing this post. But I already know I want to reread it. (Review coming soon!)
Paper Towns by John Green — In terms of John Green novels, this one is low on my favorites list (behind TFiOS and LfA for sure), but Green has been teasing me on Tumblr and Instagram with behind the scenes photos from the movie, so I know I’ll have to reread this one soon.
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher — This novel has been popping up everywhere lately, and since it’s been about a year since I’ve read it, I figure it’s about time to read it again… If I could only find my copy!
White Noise by Don DeLillo — This is the only novel I remember enjoying from my Current Fiction class in undergrad, and now I want to remember why I liked it so much. Probably because I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic worlds.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams — This is one of the very few novels I listened to as an audiobook, but it was so fragmented, and I think I could really enjoy the weirdness if I read it instead of listening.
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce — This was one of my top favorite novels of last summer, and I still think about Harold Fry often (one of my all time favorite characters, along with Ove). Definitely time for a reread.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier — This was one of my first classic novels that I read, and I’ve read it 5-6 times since that first reading. Each time, it astounds me and surprises me, and I feel like there’s still more hiding at Manderley.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott — Another one of the first classics I read (True Story: I lost my mom’s copy when I was in the 5th grade and I still haven’t told her. Shhhh). Each time I read this novel, I connect with a different character, but as I’ve gotten older, Jo has been someone I love. I’m ready to dive back into this one.
What do you think? What novel are you itching to reread and why?
