Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. I won’t be taking part weekly in 2017 so instead, I’ll only be doing the topics that interest me.
This week’s topic is: Freebie! So, since it’s a freebie this week I’ve decided to make a list of 10 Books That I Want to Re-Read
I don’t actually have any re-reads planned for this year because I need to get through some of the books that have been on my TBR for ages but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any books on my shelf that are begging to be read for the second (or fifteenth) time.
1. Dracula by Bram Stoker
I just love Dracula, it’s one of my favourite books ever.
I first read it in 2009 or 2010. I re-read it every year for a while but I don’t anymore. I haven’t read it since 2014 I think. It’s been far too long since I read it and I really would like to read it again soon.
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell
I read this for the first time in August 2016 and I already want to re-read it. It’s such a fantastic book and it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. Even though it’s a short book it’s really intense and inspiring.
3. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I read Les Mis last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, it’s such a large book that I feel like I missed a lot of the novel just by not paying enough attention.
I’d love to re-read it but it takes so long to read that I don’t know when I’ll have enough time to dedicate to it. I need to re-read it before I review it though because I would like to write an in-depth review.
4. Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land
Wow, just wow. I read this book about three weeks ago but I want to read it again now. I don’t actually own it yet but I can’t wait to buy it.
It’s a fantastic book and I loved reading it.
5. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
This is another large book that I feel like I have to re-read. I found it incredibly interesting when I first read it and I’m 100% sure I’d enjoy it again. I just want to re-read it so that I don’t miss anything. I want to read it thoroughly so that I don’t miss any details.
6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
In the last few days I’ve had some great discussions with other bloggers about THG so I feel like I should re-read it. The last time I read it was 2013 or something so it’s been a while since I last read the series.
Maybe I’ll re-read the whole series this year.
7. Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
Another book that I haven’t read since 2013/2014. I last read it for a module during my undergrad years but I had read it a few times before that. Once was after that awful film adaptation to cleanse my brain.
I only actually own the first book in the series so I might wait until I can buy the other two before I re-read this one.
8. I am Legend by Richard Matheson
I read this for my GCSEs (odd choice, I know) and I haven’t read it since even though I loved it. It’s really short too so I have no excuse.
I’d like to read it this year so that I can review it. I hope I enjoy it as much as I did the first time around.
9. Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
I re-read this a few years ago but I do really enjoy this little novel. It’s a feminist utopian novel and it’s well worth the read. It would only take me a few hours to re-read it so I’m tempted to read it during March (Women’s History Month).
I wrote more about Herland in my 2016 Women’s History Month post.
10. The City & the City by China Mieville
I love this novel but I haven’t read it in soooooooo long. I need to re-read it very soon. I love China Mieville’s work but The City & the City is my favourite novel by him that I’ve read so far.
I’d love to review it too because it’s fantastic and I’d love to get more people reading Mieville’s books.
