Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten… Books I Could Re-Read Forever


Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday – a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl. Expect a new top ten list every week!


| Top Ten… Books I Could Re-Read Forever |

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday! This week we’re looking at the Top Ten books we could re-read forever.

There are so many books I would happily pick up and read again and again and, in the past few years, this list has only grown. Keeping this Top Ten to only ten books was, therefore, quite a challenge. But, as with all these lists, there are those books that ultimately deserve a place.

These are the books that I adored as a child and inspired my love of the weird, the magical, the fantastic and the witty; these are the books that will always have a place on my bookshelf.

  1. I don’t re- read much but I’d love to have time to do it more! The LotR books should have been on my list as well, and Narnia. I’m fond of thosel! I’ve never read the secret Garden but it looks like an awesome read.

  2. Great list! I love the covers you chose for your books too. They’re all so pretty. And, while I’ve only read LotR and The Hobbit once, I do plan on rereading them at some point. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. The Tales of Alderley by Garner are written about a town near to where I live so I think his writing always worked it’s way into our home life and school life as children! I really do recommend them as wonderful children’s books 😀

        1. I’d say 7+ – Along with the first two books in the Alderley series I also loved Garner’s Owl Service and Elidor as a child. I’ve never read Boneland (Alderley #3) and understand it’s aimed at the grown up audience of the preceding books! 😀

  3. There are so many on your list that I love! Even though Tolkien books are long, they are definitely good for a reread because you never know what you might discover (or rediscover) along the way.

    I need to reread all of Jane Austen’s books soon!
