Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

November 4, 2014 Top Ten Tuesday 22

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the BookishThis 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.

      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.

      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!

      I think it was, but now it’s scheduled for November and ‘Fairest’ – Levana’s backstory – is scheduled for January or February.

    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!

      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!

    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!

    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.

      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. 🙂
