Top 10 Books I Want to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want To Reread. Rereading seems like such a luxury. Like when will I ever have the time to put aside my ever-growing TBR pile and revisit an old book love? But, I want to get better at it in the next year. I doubt I will actually reread all these soon, but maybe in my lifetime. Here’s my list, in no particular order.

1. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins


I think I am going to try to reread the trilogy before the second Mockingjay movie comes out next year. I hope it really pulls me into the story again as it did the first time.

2. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

gr-walktorememberI read this back in high school, and I’m really curious if I would like it as much now as I did then.

3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

GR-littlewomen2One of my all-time favorite stories that I really want to revisit via the book.

4. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

chroniclesI like some of these books more than others, but I think I would like to reread all of them again sometime.

5. Rebecca by Daphene de Maurier

GR-rebeccaI really enjoyed this one in high school and really want to read it again.

6. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

GR-thepictureofdoriangrayAnother read from high school.

7. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman


I wanted to reread this book right after I finished it. That’s pretty rare, especially for a book I gave 4.5 (not 5) stars to.

8. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

gr-thehobbitI read this back in middle school! I wanted to reread it before the first of the movies came out, but didn’t. But maybe one day…

9. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

GR-tokillamockingbirdAnd one last read from high school I feel I really ought to revisit.

10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

GR-bookthiefBecause I can never get enough of Rudy.

  1. I also loved reading Rebecca in high school (or early college; I can’t remember!). It’s definitely one I plan to go back to someday soon. Same with To Kill a Mockingbird. And I’m planning a Seraphina re-read prior to the release of Shadow Scale. 🙂
    I hope you are able to get to some of these in the near future (and that they live up to your memories)!

  2. There’s a ton of classics here! I read To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school just for fun, but I don’t think I understand what was happening, so I should try to reread that one day. And THE BOOK THIEF YAY! That book is simply beautiful 😀

  3. I would love to reread the Hunger Games trilogy as well! Unfortunately, I’m not sure I have the time. BUT, luckily, one of our required reads for school is Mockingjay, so I’ll be rereading it sometime around January. 🙂

    I really enjoyed Seraphina, but I don’t know if it’s a book I want to reread. I mean, that would be great since book 2’s taking forever to come out, but it’s not on a must-reread list or anything for me. 🙂

    I can’t REread The Book Thief since I haven’t read it yet. 🙁 Yes, I know, I should. ASAP.

    • That’s interesting that Mockingjay is required reading for your school without the prerequisites of the first two books!

      The reason I want to reread Seraphina is because it features some of my favorite characters from this year. I’ve read a lot of great books but very few where I just completely LOVED the characters, and I adore Seraphina and Kiggs so much, I need to read about them again!

  4. Mockingjay was on my list as well! And like you, I loved Rudy in The Book Thief, his character always made me smile. A Walk to Remember was the first and LAST Nicholas Spark book I ever read. It made me feel so good until the end, and then it made me cry! I refuse to read any more of his books again because of that. Only Stephen King is allowed to do that to me. Or John Green I guess. Great list!

    • I haven’t read any other Nicholas Sparks either. I actually started two other of his books but couldn’t get into them. I was a teen at the time and I liked that A Walk to Remember was about teens, whereas the other books were about adults.

  5. Yessss, I have The Book Thief and TKaM on mine too!! (I keep typing “To Kill a Mockingjay” lol. I am in a tired way. XD) I think i reread Narnia enough when I was little (like I listened to it on audio absolutely ALL the time) that I’m good for that. One day I’ll hopefully read it to my nephews/nieces though. x)

      • We finally got around to watching the movie version of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe a couple of days ago (only about ten years behind the rest of the world) and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is. I love the books so much that I was nervous about seeing them adapted.

        I’m about to start reading through A Wrinkle in Time with the kids partially so I can reread it myself. It was always one of my favorites when I was younger.

        • The Disney adaptations are pretty good! Though in Prince Caspian there is a little romance between Caspian and Susan, which is so dumb. But other than that, pretty good! I was sad they didn’t continue after Dawn Treader.

          • I read somewhere that there’s an option for someone else to pick up the series in 2017. Not sure if they made enough money a studio to go for it or not, but the possibility is still out there.
