Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This Top Ten Tuesday was a challenge for me at first. I don’t do a lot of re-reading. But I’ve recently starting picking up books I read as a teenager or college student just to see how they sit with me now that I have some life experience. Some are still awesome and some, upon a second read, fall flat. But I was absolutely shocked to see that I came up with 15 books I could happily re-read over and over. Who frikken knew?
Books I could re-read forever
I read this several times as a teenager, which makes me proud of lil Shannon because I was not real woke back then.
I recently read this for just the second time (except for Return of the King, which I never got through the first time for some reason). Still love the characters and the story and will the rest of my life.
I just love an unfortunate (and then very fortunate) governess, what can I say?
I re-read this for the third or fourth time recently and enjoyed it immensely. It’s one of those books that puts early American history into perspective.
This book freaked me out as a kid and tbh it freaks me out now.
A nail-biting vacation gone wrong. You can see tragedy about to happen and you’re powerless to stop it. My favorite.
What really gets me about this book is the way Crichton drives home the toughness of medieval people. Think you could fight a medieval knight? Best get to the gym yo.
This is the book that made me fall in love with wild turkeys. Yeah, I know it’s weird.
I’ve read this about a hundred times. It’s just such a sad, beautiful novel. And Wally Lamb is one of my favorite fiction writers overall.
I clung to this book when Jake was little. It totally validated my own exhaustion.
Yeah, I’m still going…
Loved this book as a kid. I had a beautiful illustrated hardback. I wish I knew where that was. Anyway, I love it as an adult and it’s about time for a re-read…
Ditto this one.
Memoir by a loving foster mother to hundreds of kids. Gets me every time.
As a kid I was fascinated to learn that children from the UK had been shipped to other countries during WWII.
And a decorating book because I just want to dive in and live between these pages.
