Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top 20 Books I Want To Reread!!



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader GirlTop Ten Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I am not sure there is any SINGLE book I could reread forever. However, I do have a LONG LIST of books I'd love to reread again.

In an effort to curb my long list of rereads for this week's post, I've chosen to focus on ten nonfiction and ten fiction books I'd like to reread sometime in the future.

Below (in no specific order) is my list of twenty books I'd enjoy rereading again.

1. Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior by Temple Grandin
2. The Master & Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
3. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
4. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden 
5. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
6. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
7. The Assassination of the Archduke: Sarajevo 1914 and the Romance That Changed the World by Sue Woolmans & Greg King
8. The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

9. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
10. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
11. This Common Secret by Susan Wicklund 
12. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem 
13. The Soloist by Steve Lopez
14. Power of the Habit by Charles Duhigg
15. The Forty Fathom Bank by Les Galloway
16. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
17. The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers
18. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Burrows and Mary Ann Shaffer
19. The Scent of God by Beryl Singleton Bissell
20. Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World by Aja Raden

  3. To Kill a Mockingbird is a great choice. And, I really enjoyed East of Eden, though, I don't think I could reread it over and over.

  5. I have read To Kill a Mockingbird and East of Eden twice. They both stood up well to rereading. I will be reading The Second Mrs Hockaday, first time, for a reading group next month. It must be good if you want to reread it.

  21. I love 'to kill a mockingbird', it's a great book though I didn't want to read 'go set a watchman', it just seems they're just print that book just because 'to 'to kill a mockingbird' is so famous.

    I didn't read any of the 19 books on your list, guess I should read more non-fiction, perhaps?

    have a lovely day.

  41. With the buzz surrounding the new film, I'm tempted to read the 'Potato Peel' novel ahead of the eventual US release of the film. It sounds really interesting and if the film is any indication, it looks as if there's a great blend of drama, bittersweet feelings and wit. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.
