Books I Want to Reread

April 16, 2013 Meme / Surveys 4

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week’s topic is: Rewind. Meaning we get to revisit a past top ten topic and I decided on books I’d want to reread.

01. Amanda Quick’s Slightly Shady. My reason for this has to do with the fact I read an ARC of her upcoming book, The Mystery Woman, and the hero, Joshua, reminds me a lot of Tobias in Slightly Shady. I just want to compare them and see why I kept insisting Joshua is like Tobias.

02. Liz Carlyle’s The Devil You Know. I love her earlier books, but lately I’m longing to read and get lost…okay be seduced by Bentley. I like to pretend I’m the heroine instead. LOL!

03. Brenda Joyce’s Deadly Love. Okay I want to reread her entire Deadly series. I miss Francesca and Calder. I want to get lost in early 20th century NYC.

04. Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. This is my favorite Hemingway novel and recently a friend was discussing reading his novels for the first time.

05. John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. You know, I really enjoyed this book when I read it in high school and a part of me wants to see if I’ll capture the same magic I felt when I read it for the first time.

06. Colleen McCullough’s The Thorn Birds. Gah I was a teenager when I first read this and mostly to shock my mother with my reading choice. It didn’t work. LOL! I believe as an adult I can appreciate it a little more.

07. Pearl S. Buck’s The Good Earth. I LOVED this book growing up. I haven’t read it in YEARS and I think it’s time to say hello to an old friend.

08. Chelsea Cain’s The Night Season. This is the one book from her Archie / Gretchen series that can be read as a stand alone. I want to read it because this is where the true friendship between Archie & Susan comes together and let’s face it, I ship those two!

09. Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. My reason has to do with the fact that I want to know if it’s mindblowing as it was the first time. I worry that perhaps it may it not be. eeek!

10. Lauren Willig’s The Ashford Affair. Yes, I know I just read it a few weeks ago, but I really want to reread it and just get lost in the story all over again.

What about you? Any books you’d like to reread? What Top Ten rewind topic did you pick?

    I haven’t read any of these! Really, I haven’t even heard of most of these. Sometimes I feel so out of the loop when I read other people’s list and don’t know any books 😛 Still, they must be somewhat good if you want to read them again! (Even if it’s just to determine why one character reminds you of another or to see if it’s still mindblowing 😉

    I read The Thorn Birds when I was younger, I do wonder if I’d appreciate it more now. And I feel like I should reread all the Hemingway I read when I was younger because my life outlook is so much different – I wonder if my interpretation would be different too…
