TTT: Re-Reads for Non Re-Readers


It's been a little while since I did a Top Ten Tuesday and, honestly, I almost skipped this week because of the topic—Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever.  Thing is, I'm not much of a re-reader.  I have a sky-high stack of new reads that I want to get to, so going back to something I've already read seems like a waste of time.  Once I got to thinking about it, though, I realized I do have a few favorites that I don't mind re-reading from time to time.  I'll get to that in a sec.

First, though, I want to encourage you to join in the TTT fun.  It really is a good time and a great way to explore the wondrous book blogging world.  If you want to discover new blogs to enjoy, add a ton of great recommendations to your TBR pile, or just drop in on old friends, TTT is the meme for you.  All you have to do is click on over to That Artsy Reader Girl, read a few instructions, then make your own list, and start visiting others.  

Okay, here we go with my list of the Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever:


1.  The whole Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling—Who wouldn't want to re-visit Hogwarts over and over again?  I love the characters, the world, the stories, everything.  If I was stuck on a deserted island, I'd want the box set to keep me entertained.


2.  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee—This is my favorite book of all time and one I could definitely re-read forever without tiring of it.


3.  Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery—Despite the fact that this novel is about 90% lengthy, flowery description, I love it so much that I could read it a million times over.  


4.  Little Women by Louisa May Alcott—Ditto for this novel.  I love it more with every re-read.


5.  Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr., and John Archambault—Because all my children have adored this book, it's probably the one I've re-read most in my life.  With its fun, upbeat rhythm it's a popular readaloud that my kids requested for bedtime stories over and over and over.  I have it memorized and so does my 9-year-old.  We don't even need to look at the book to re-read it!


6.  A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens—I re-read this holiday classic every December to put me in the Christmas spirit.   


7.  Are You Grumpy, Santa? by Gregg and Evan Spiridellis—This is another fun readaloud that my kids love.  I'm a pretty big fan, too, since I totally relate to Santa's plight!


8.  The Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny—So, I haven't actually finished this series yet, but that's because I'm taking it slow and really savoring it.  I can definitely see myself re-reading it in the future.  Even though it's a mystery series, it's really more about the characters at its core, which means that you can enjoy it again and again even if you already know "whodunit." 



9.  The Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer—As with #8, I'm still reading this series for the first time.  The author died recently, so once again I'm taking my time with these books knowing they will be the only ones Meyer will ever write.  They're so funny and delightful, though, that I can definitely see myself re-reading the whole series in future.



10.  The scriptures (Holy Bible; The Book of Mormon; The Doctrine and Covenants; etc.)—On a more serious note,  I have to include the scriptures.  Not because these volumes are riveting page turners, but because they give me great insight and inspiration.  No matter how many times I read them, I find new gems every time I delve inside.  It will take eternal re-readings for me to even begin to understand them! 

What do you think of my list?  What's on yours?  I'd love to know, so please leave me a comment on this post with a link to your blog/list.  I will gladly return the favor.

Happy TTT!
