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 10 Books I Loved But Will Never Re-Read. This topic was challenging for me because, with rare exception like the Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, and a few childhood favorites, I’ve never been that much of a re-reader anyway. That’s not to say I would never consider re-reading. It’s just usually not something I’m in the mood for. That said, if I was a big re-reader, the 10 books before are ones I would never consider re-visiting even though I loved them the first time around.
Why? Well, I probably took the easy way out with this topic because as you’ll notice, all of the books I’ve chosen are of the mystery, thriller, psychological thriller variety. For me, these kinds of books are all about that journey of sifting through all of the clues, coming up with possible theories as to what might have happened, etc. Once I’ve done that and made it through all of the twists and turns to what I hope is a thrilling conclusion, I just can’t imagine going back and reading them again. It’s not a mystery or a thriller to me anymore if I already know the answers. So yeah, I adored these books when I first read them but have no plans to revisit any of them.
