Top Ten Tuesday: Rereads

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Books I Want To Reread
  1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (lucky for me this is the Btown Booksters next read!)
  2. The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart (loved this series as a kid and hopefully I'd enjoy them as much as an adult)
  3. His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman (I haven't read these in a very long time and would love to immerse myself in these great books again!)
  4. Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger (I've reread Catcher in the Rye many times but it's been far too long since I read F&Z for the first time)
  5. Anne of Green Gables and series by L. M. Montgomery (I adored these books as a kid and would love to revisit them)
  6. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (read this as a teen and I've completely forgotten the book except to remember that I really liked it)
  7. The Child from the Sea by Elizabeth Goudge (another childhood fav)
  8. Snowflower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See (such a great book)
  9. The Broken Chord by Michael Dorris (a memoir about raising a child with fetal alcohol syndrome may be an odd choice but it was such a good book!)
  10. Fountainhead by Ayn Rand (my first Rand - and I loved it)


  1. The Alchemist was amaazing. I think every person should read it.
    Happy Tuesday. :)

  2. I love the Anne of Green Gables books, I would like to reread these too!

  3. Oh yes His Dark Materials! Me too, me too!


  4. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is on my list of rereads. I loved that book! I reread The Alchemist recently, and really enjoyed it. Great list!

  5. I pretty much love anything written by Lisa See. She is awesome.

  6. One of my absoultely favorite trilogy's was Mary Stewarts' Merlin Trilogy. I'm glad to see one of the books on your list. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  7. I allllmost put His Dark Materials on my list! I need to read Snow Flower as well!

  8. Ooh. I definitely need to reread His Dark Materials. I feel like those will be books that get better every time.

  9. The Book Thief is on my list too. Been ages since I read it.

    Unfortunately, I think some of the magic of the Anne of Green Gables series is lost when you read them as an adult. I hope your re-reading of them brings back pleasant memories.
