Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want to Reread.
I reread books all the time, so you’d think this would be easy for me. But my rereading is entirely mood-based, so today’s list may be totally different from tomorrow’s. Here are some that I’ve been thinking of rereading recently, and some I plan to reread eventually:
Libriomancer and Codex Born, by Jim C. Hines – to refresh my memory before Unbound comes out in January.
The entire Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series by Laurie R. King. (Or at least Garment of Shadows, to refresh my memory before reading Dreaming Spies which comes out in February)
The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer – before the conclusion, Winter, comes out next November.
The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear, because they’re awesome, and because I know I missed subtle clues the first time around. Not sure when I’ll reread them, but definitely before whenever book 3 comes out.
Break In, by Dick Francis. I haven’t read this one in a while, and I like Dick Francis
Exile’s Honor, by Mercedes Lackey. One of my favorites of her Valdemar books, because I love the insight into Alberich’s character. In fact, I’m in the mood to read it right now!
Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher – a wonderful book, and one that’s good for the coming season
The Perilous Gard, by Elizabeth Marie Pope. I wanted to read it for Halloween, but didn’t have time.
The Ordinary Princess, by M.M. Kaye – a charming children’s book that I’ve been meaning to review for the blog.

Perilous Gard, yes! I haven’t read a single other book on your list, though I have read some other books by those authors.

It’s one of my favorite YA books of all time, along with Robin McKinley’s Beauty and The Blue Sword.

Love your list 🙂 I love it that you’ve included the Lunar Chronicles and the Patrick Rothfuss books as both of those are books that I’ve been meaning to read for the first time for a while now, so if you would reread them they must be good, so I must have some good reads to look forward to 🙂

Indeed they are both wonderful series!
My sister was just mentioning The Ordinary Princess the other day. I don’t really remember it though I know I read it a long time ago so maybe I need to re-read it now. 🙂

I discovered it when I was a teacher, fell in love with it, and read it to my class – who also loved it. It’s a great little book. If you can, find a copy with Kaye’s own illustrations, which are charming and quite good.
Libromancer is so on my list now!
It’s a wonderful fantasy for book geeks! Both the premise and the execution are great, and a good part of the fun is recognizing the various books Isaac uses for his magic. (You can read my review here.)

I’ve only read the Lunar Chronicles series and it is worth a re-read. The Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes books sound interesting. I’ll have to add those!
Given the books you’ve reviewed and liked, I think you’d enjoy the Mary Russell series!
I think the Lunar Chronicles will definitely be one I re-read especially if Winter doesn’t come out until November next year!! I thought it was originally scheduled for early spring…. Ah well. It’s coming and that’s what matters.

I think it was, but now it’s scheduled for November and ‘Fairest’ – Levana’s backstory – is scheduled for January or February.
I might have to try Libriomancer, I like the idea behind that one.

It’s wonderful, and it would make a fantastic movie; you can feel the cinematic pace as you read it.
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library
Oh I haven’t read Winter Solstice in years but it’s so good. I’ll have to go dig up my copy. I’d love to reread the King series from start to finish since it’s been years since I read the first one but I probably won’t for awhile at least. Rothfuss and the Lunar Chronicles are on my TBR. Great list!
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library recently posted…Top Ten Books I Want to Reread
I’m definitely rereading Winter Solstice this year. I doubt I can fit in all the King books before Dreaming Spies comes out, but I’m pretty sure I can squeeze in Garment of Shadows. And I can’t wait to see what you think of the Meyer and Rothfuss series!
Bea @Bea's Book Nook
Wow, there’s only one book on your list that I’ve read and that’s Break In. I do love to re-read books and that’s why I keep books. Most of my family doesn’t re-read and they don’t understand why I do.
My mom rereads sometimes, but doesn’t remember books that well, so they’re fresh to her. She doesn’t understand how I can reread mysteries when I remember whodunnit. 🙂 My daughter and I both re-read books we love. A well-loved, well-read book is like an old friend!
Rita @ My Home of Books
I don’t reread books but I applaud you for being able to 🙂 I don’t even like to re-watch movies or tv shows. I’m weird that way.
I did read Cinder because my eldest and I used to buddy-read YA fantasy and dystopian (I’m miss this, but she works crazy hard and doesn’t read much at all right now). I never read the other ones. Perhaps I’ll check them out. Thanks for sharing your choices, very interesting.
Rita @ My Home of Books recently posted…Discussion: do you boycott books by authors whom you personally don’t like?
Some people enjoy re-reading or re-watching, others don’t! You get more new books read when you don’t re-read, but rereading can be comforting, so there are benefits either way. 🙂

Oh I have Cinder on my tbr pile (for the first time though). One day hopefully I’ll make it through a chunk of this list. lol

There are so many good books, and so little time to read them all!
