Hello fellow bookworm! Top Ten Tuesday is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! Most of us are familiar with Top Ten Tuesday by now, but if your new to this, a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever. I could easily fill 7 of of these spaces (I wonder what books they could be…) but I’m making it slightly more challenging for myself and collecting those 7 books as number 1…
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Of course these are on here, I re-read these book ever year, and if there weren’t so many other books in the world to read, I would happily read these books over and over again!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I know so many people find it hard to re-read books like this because they know what happens or it’s too sad, but between the death and depressing moments, I find so much life and willingness to keep going no matter what the situation, as well as finding love even in the darkest times.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
There are so many small quotes and messages within this book, and I find a new one every time I pick up this classic novel! There’s always something new to learn, and a new moral to find.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The writing in this book is so elegant and sophisticated, it’s honestly like reading poetry! This is another book that is all about finding light in dark times, and having the ability to look past someone’s appearance, or how other people may see them, and see true person with a personality and determination to keep going.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve only read this once, but I will definitely be reading it again! It’s such an easy book to read because the characters are so relatable, and the story is light-hearted and lovely with underlying lessons on how to love and treat each other in a relationship.
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
This is my favourite children’s classic and it will never get old. While I haven’t read it as an adult (maybe I should!) I remember it as a story all about not giving up and pushing to get exactly what you want, even if other people don’t believe in you.
Matilda by Roald Dahl
I love Matilda as a character, she reminds me it’s ok to be smart and a little nerdy, even if society thinks it makes you introverted and unsociable (which it doesn’t!) It great reading about a fellow bookworm!
That’s it for today’s list (not quite 10 I’m afraid, but a book has to be really good for me to want to read it over and over!) I’d love to know what you think about these books, and whether you’d be able to re-read them forever, and feel free to link your own lists below as well!
Until next time…
