top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Books We Want to Reread

We’d love to reread these books because they were incredible!

Ricki

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I could read this book a thousand times and never get tired of it. I last read it over a year ago, and I am antsy to read it again.

2. The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie

This is one of my favorite books. I haven’t read it in a few years, and I would love to get lost between the pages again.

3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

This is one of my favorite classics. I have a beautiful, illustrated, vintage version that I would love to read.

4. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

I haven’t read this book since I was very young. I bought a version and want to reread it again as an adult.

5. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Along the same lines, I’d love to reread this classic I enjoyed as a young girl

Kellee

1. The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry

My favorite. I love to read it over and over and over.

2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians then The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Despite what The New Yorker says, I love Percy Jackson! I read all of the original series and then the first of the Heroes of Olympus series, but I haven’t read the rest! So, I’d love to reread them all and then continue the series.

3. Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix

I never read the final book in this series, so I would love to reread and finish.

4. Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz

Stormbreaker is one of my go-to book talk books because it is such a fun series, and I would truly enjoy living Alex’s adventures with him again.

5. The first book of so many series that I have not finished

I have so, so, so many series that I have started and not finished, and it has been too long to just jump into book 2 or 3. This means there are a lot of Book 1 of series that I need to reread.

Which books would you reread?

    Oh man – The Phantom Tollbooth has been popping up a surprising amount in conversation, and it’s been at least 15 years since I read it. I definitely need a reread! And The Shadow Children! I’m in the exact same boat. All but the last book, agh! And I’d definitely need a reread of the series at this point.

      I have never read it and people bring it up all the time! It is one that I really need to read….

      Crazy! The Shadow Children was so good, so why not read the last one?! Sigh. Now I’d definitely need to reread them all. One day 😀

  2. Yes, Wuthering Heights! And I’ve never actually read The Phantom Tollbooth. I have NO CLUE how that one slipped past me all throughout school.

    • ALSO it isn’t a reread but my husband and I just bought the complete Alex Rider series for my boy for his birthday a couple of weeks ago because he got tired of checking them out of the library for rereads. He keeps telling me I should read them. (:

      • Kellee says:

        You should!! They are fantastic! Great adventures and action!
        And I love that your son adores them. That makes me so happy. Meeting Anthony Horowitz was a true fan girl moment for me. I love them!

    • Kellee says:

      I haven’t read either of them, and I have a literature degree 🙂 It is amazing what books slipped passed me!

  3. I love Wuthering Heights and the Secret Garden. Good picks.

  4. As always, you two have great lists! I’ve been meaning to reread Wuthering Heights – I read it shortly after college and loved it. I’d also love to reread The Secret Garden – I’ve read it several times already as a kid and once as an adult but a while back. Believe it or not, I just read the Phantom Tollbooth for the first time last year!

    I also want to reread The Giver (and then see the movie even though it got panned)…and I’ve never read the rest of the series but really want to. I’ve read a few Haddix noves and loved them but haven’t read the Shadow Children series yet.

    So many good books and so little time!
