Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Books I Could Re-Read Forever

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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever.  This is going to have a few repeats from my discussion post last week where I talked about books I love to pick up when I’m in  a reading slump.  Books I could re-read forever would definitely fit into that category.  I’d definitely say my list is a mix of old favorites when I was in school and newer favorites that I’ve read since I started blogging, so there’s a blend of the fresh and new and the nostalgic.  There are magical reads, dramatic reads, and yes, I know you’ll be shocked, but even a romance or two! And yes, I also snuck a few series in there as well, one of which, The Winternight Trilogy, still has a book that hasn’t even come out yet but I can already tell it’s destined to be a favorite series of mine.  🙂

    I could always read the Harry Potter books. I also love the Lunar Chronicles, but need to read Winter. I’ve read A Darker Shade of Magic and need the other two ASAP. And Pooh!!! I love it.

    I wanted to re-read Simon Vs. before the movie, but I’ve run out of time I think! Ah well, sometime soon I hope.

    We have so many in common! The Night Circus is such a beautiful book. And Harry Potter and Narnia are such comfort reads for me. I really want to reread The Lunar Chronicles this year! Great list!

    Absolutely YES! for THE LUNAR CHRONICLES! I love that series to pieces! I definitely want to read THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA and WINTERNIGHT TRILOGY and try again with Simon and THE SHADES OF MAGIC TRILOGY which were DNF the first time I tried 🙁

      Awww, sorry to hear Simon and The Shades of Magic trilogy didn’t work out for you. It took me a few pages to get into the first book of the trilogy but then I quickly became hooked and fell in love with the characters and the setting.

    Totally agreed on Shades of Magic and Simon vs! Both made it to the top books of 2017 for me and I love them with all my heart. I also recently reread The Lunar Chronicles 😌

    Great choices 😊

      Oh yes, I rewatch all of the HP movies pretty regularly too. They seem to air on TV every year around the Christmas holidays and my son and I stop to watch every time we see one while channel surfing.

    Only books I wasn’t a fan of on your list are the Lunar Chronicles and that’s just because Cinder wasn’t for me so I didn’t continue on.

    Unfortunately I never read the Chronicles of Narnia, I feel like child me really missed out on something.

    As for the rest of your books, I totally agree. I have definitely reread all of those!

    Thanks for sharing,

      Sorry The Lunar Chronicles didn’t work better for you.

      Hopefully you’ll have the opportunity to read the Narnia books some day. At least The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe anyway. That one was pure magic for me when I was a kid.

      Right? Pooh was such a huge part of my childhood. I’m kind of sad that my son is too old for those now because I loved having an excuse to re-read them as often as I wanted.

    Oh, I’m completely in agreement with The House at Pooh Corner and Pride and Prejudice. I loved the first book in the Shades of Magic trilogy and need to read the others… Thank you for sharing this list:)

    I agree on so many of these! Especially Harry Pottery and the Chronicles of Narnia. Simon too! I STILL need to read The Shades of Magic trilogy. That’s one of those series I’m really hoping to binge at some point this year.

    You know, I still have my copy of To Kill a Mockingbird from high school as it’s one of my favourites but I’ve never re-read it because I don’t really re-read. It would be an obvious pick for a list of books I will never sell, lend, or give away though lol

      I don’t re-read much but that one is almost always the first one I grab if I am in the mood to re-read and yes, it will always have a place in my book collection 🙂
