Top Ten Books I Want To Reread

I don't often reread books.
There are few books I want to reread.
The only exceptions are
children's picture books

What about you?
What books would you like to reread?

And don't forget!
This is the last week for
the September Giveaway here at Readerbuzz is...

And it's international!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


  1. One of my picks this week was actually a childrens book! :] I can read childrens books over and over that I love. Of course I guess I'm somewhat forced because I have a 5 year old who likes me to read to her. :D

    I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday! :)

    My Top 10 Tuesday

  2. I used to be a nanny so I definitely know what its like rereading children's books. I think I have Green Eggs and Ham memorized right now (a very desirable talent).

    Here's My Top Ten Tuesday

  3. I'm with you, I rarely reread apart from poetry

  4. Ah, I should have included Wolf at the Door a great book by Barbara Corcoran, and a young readers' book. :) With some books, you enjoy them so much that first time, there's no way you'd need to read them again. Happy reading, Deb! Hope to see you at the Teen Book Festival in Austin this Saturday!

    My Top Ten

  5. I love to reread. I usually don't do it often enough but this year I've been rereading a ton. Especially when I want to write a review on a book and feel like I need to know it inside and out.

  6. I do have books that I like to reread (e.g., novels by Austen, Hardy, Charlotte Bronte, Dickens, Cormac McCarthy, etc.); but, like you, I find myself always dipping into my poetry collections of Dickinson, Hardy, Christina Rossetti, Shakespeare, Tennyson, Keats, and Akhmatova.

    And then I'm always rereading the ancient Greek classics, i.e., Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, etc. I'm a sucker for new translations of these timeless works. Cheers! Chris

  7. I concur!! poetry is another wonderful passion of mine, definitely can re-read and children's books too.

  8. I don't think I could ever not want to reread. I love to visit my favorite characters from time to time. But, I don't reread as often as I used to or would like to because there are so many new to me books to read.

  9. I re-read all the time. I love picture books too and have a small collection of favorites.

  10. As I get older I have started to reread. I only do it for a few books. I have too many to read the first time round. But you really do get so much from a reread, when you're not reading for the story. The Road remains the only book that I've closed after a first read, and then picked it up again 10 minutes later to immediately reread it.

  11. I tend to be discouraged to reread books unless they are short and quick reads. I will say that an honorable mention to my list would have been The Ramona series by Beverly Cleary. It's been 15+ years and I'm interested in seeing if I still enjoy them as much as I did.

  12. There are too many books in the world that I want to read for me to reread much of anything. I do take the occasional glance at Gatsby, Poe, and a smattering of poetry.

    He, he, I just realized another benefit to not having my own wee ones, not having to reread the same kids books over and over and over:)

  13. In all honesty, I'm not much of a rereader myself. With so many great new books I never seem to get around to my reread list...

  14. I used to have a self-imposed no re-reading policy. There are just so many unread books out there. But I've come to realize that sometimes revisiting an old favourite is just what I need.

  15. I don't actually re-read that often either. However, I find that when I do I always feel really rewarded by the experience. I just wish I had all the time in the world...
