Read It AGAIN?!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

This week's topic is "Rewind," which means that bloggers get to choose any past Top Ten Tuesday topic. I read through the list and laughed at what jumped out at me… because it's exactly what I chose to do last time we got to choose an old topic. But I did the topic a little bit differently when I first wrote it, so I'm going to do it again today. Also, I adore re-reading so I couldn't limit myself to just ten.

  1. That's quite the list! Let's see . . . Of all these books I've read The Help and Fangirl. Both amazing books that I would love to reread as well! I do have A LOT of these books on my TBR list though: All the Truth That's In Me, Grave Mercy, Crown of Midnight - just to name a few. Now I'm more excited to check them out! :)

    My TTT!

    1. Oh I'm so excited for you to read those - and to hear that you love the other two!

  2. I shy away from Contemporary/Realistic Fiction but I'm really trying to get familiar with the genre because so many people have recommended me some, looks like, awesome books. I see that you have Melina Marchetta's books up there and I know that when I do go to read a Contemporary fiction book, hers will be first up. Same with Rainbow Rowell's books.

    Thanks for sharing ♥ xoxo

  4. I could totally re-read all of Sarah Addison Allen's books too. <3 LOVED Attachments, but read that recently but I could see myself re-reading that one too. I'm not sure about Me Before You. That book broke my heart. I'm still trying to collect the pieces. :) Considering I loved Attachments so much, Fangirl (and E&P) are on my TBR but haven't got to them yet. Glad to hear at least Fangirl is worth a re-read!

    1. Sarah Addison Allen is so re-readable - especially when you need a pick-me-up read. And yay Attachments! Hope you enjoy her other two books just as much :) As sad as Me Before You was, I think I want to re-read because I just loved those characters so much.

  5. I love re-reading as well. I always find it interesting what types of books I like to re-read, too. I would also love to reread Anna and the French Kiss. I feel like I need another dose of St. Clair!! And I know I will be reading Rainbow Rowell's books many times over.

    1. I'm so happy when people say they love re-reading! It's so wonderful :) And I always find it interesting what I tend to gravitate towards when I want to re-read - such a great point!

  6. You always inspire me to re-read! I wish I had more time to devote to revisiting old favourites ... one day I shall endeavour to do this! And The Poisonwood Bible *happy sigh* This is a book that I HAVE re-read many times, and it gets better with each reading!

    I'm totally going to read Throne of Glass this year. I promise.

    1. Awww thanks M! That means a lot. I love re-reading - and I've found that I really love doing audiobook re-reads. So that's one suggestion/way you can try to incorporate it into your reading life!

  7. I've only recently started re-reading books again (especially series), but I love it! It's a little harder for me to do since most of the books I own are in the library I've been accumulating in the Philippines since I was young. But I do it now and again with the books I do have here (a meager amount, really), and you've really been one of the people who reminds/inspires me to do it more often. Great selection of books up there! I've read most of the YA ones, but only a few of the adult ones -- got to remedy that!

    1. Oh yes, I love re-reading series (especially before a new book in the series comes out). I'm sad that most of your books are far away :( That's a bummer and totally gets in the way of re-reading.

      But thanks for such sweet words! I'm glad I help promote re-reading <3

  8. This is the best! I have grown to love re-reading. I did it a lot last year, and I don't think I re-read anything new this year... quite yet. But I'm mostly taking a break from review books in March to get to some books on my windowsills that I've been holding on for more than a year. (I started one today actually.) I keep thinking about re-reading Anna but with Jen Smith's new book coming out... I decided to go back and re-read her first two books. :)

    Thanks for getting me thinking!

    1. Yay for falling in love with re-reading! I didn't do it as much as I wanted last year, which is why it's one of the things I wanted "more" of this year. I don't like when I get too focused on new and shiny books and forget about my old favorites. I hope March is everything you want it to be reading-wise. Those little review book breaks can be so great!

  9. As an avid re reader I SO APPROVE of this list. Nowhere but Home, The Help, Burial Rites, and Me Before You are MUSTS to be re read. Holy crap. I adore those books.
