Top 10 - Books I want to reread

When I was younger I used to reread a lot, but these days not so much anymore. There are so many books I want to reread, but these are the books that are highest on my list:

36361. The Giver  by Lois Lowry
I recently went to see Insurgent and ever since I really want to read something dystopian again. The last two dystopian books that I read, Shatter Me and The Maze Runner, were a bit of a let down, but I loved The Giver when I read it for the first time and I'm sure I will still enjoy it. I remember it as being very different from other dystopians.

2. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
2767052Also because I'm in the mood to read dystopians and it is one of my all time favorite series! I have never read this trilogy in English and I really want to read it in the language it was originaly written in.
721933. The Arrival by Shaun Tan
I read this graphic novel only a few months ago, but it's such an amazing book that I can't wait to read it again. (Pretty much after I finished the book I already wanted to read it again)

4. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
113436I've recently reread the first book in the series and I really want to read the other books again. I've read the first two books several times, but I don't think I've ever reread the other ones eventhough it is one of my favorite series.

604005. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I've only ever read the first book in the Inheritance cycle and I really want to read the other books, but I don't remember too much about it, so I should first reread the first book and then continue on.

6. The Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan
 After Harry Potter this is probably my favorite middle grade series. I've read most of the books at least three times and still enjoyed them. The banter between the main characters Halt, Will and Horance is just hilarious!

2318151579937. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A childhood favorite of mine and it has been way too long since I have read this one. When I was younger I used to read this one over and over again.

8. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I read this book for the first time for my French class in high school. At the time my French was really bad and I really struggled with the book, but eventually it became one of my all time favorite stories. I also own a copy in Spanish and it will probably be the first book I read in Spanish.
9. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Another dystopian! I picked this book up at a second hand store, not knowing too much about it and I was blown away by the story. I think this is the only book I've ever read that really hooked me from page 1.

10. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Just as with Eragon I really want to continue on with this series, but eventhough I really enjoyed it, I don't remember too much about the first book!

What are books you really want to reread?


  1. I reread Harry Potter once a year I guess :D and The Hunger Games is also on my reread list; I don't remember all the details and I want to compare the books to the movies as well..

  2. I would love to re-read The Hunger Games. Haven't read any of your other picks, but I've been wanting to start the Kingkiller series.

  3. I don't have too much time for rereading books either, although it is something I want to start doing in the near future. I would love to reread The Secret Garden because I can remember loving that book so much. I actually reread the entire Inheritance cycle although I still need to read the fourth one for the first time.
