Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Go Back To

the broke and the bookish

Yes, this! I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in ages. But now I am, because I’m putting off writing review posts. Great job, Sarah. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely group of gals at The Broke and The Bookish, and this week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want To Reread.

1. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon – I basically ALWAYS want to be reading Outlander, okay? Did I just re-read the entire series earlier this year? YES. But the thing about this series is that I miss it when I’m not reading it. I’ll try to wait another year before I re-read it for the fourth or fifth time, but I’m not promising anything.

Harry Potter series

2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling –  The same situation as Outlander, except I can fly through these books much faster. I haven’t read them since early 2013, so ALMOST 2 years, kind of. Man, that makes me want to just to a quick re-read of them during the Christmas season. That might happen. Maybe I’ll finally buy them all as e-books, too, so I could read them in bed… HMMMM…

3. Chew series by Rob Guillory and John Layman – Actually, there are already a bunch of comics I want to re-read… but Chew the most.

4. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – I’m pretty sure this is still my favorite Rowell, but I should re-read just to make sure. And to experience the humor and adorableness again.

5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I think maybe this is the Christmas season sneaking up on me too, but re-reading P&P sounds nice right now. A nice comfort read. Maybe I’ll listen to the audio version soon. Orrrr watch the long-ass 5-hour movie version on Black Friday while decorating?

6. In Search of the Multiverse by John Gribbin – Just for funsies.

7. Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding – Oh man, I loved reading these! And I haven’t re-read them yet, and now I really want to. I miss the fun, steampunk-ish, Firefly-esque feel of it.

Alright, I’m stopping there. My brain is really just stuck on the idea of a Christmas Harry Potter re-reading marathon. That is DEFINITELY happening soon. I think maybe I’ll start Thanksgiving weekend, or maybe the weekend before… I’m pretty sure I could finish them all my Christmas time.


Anyways, what are books you want to re-read?




  1. I hung out with a friend about a month ago and took her to the comic shop in my town. As we were heading out the door I saw a little shelf with Chew on it and snatched up volumes 4-6. …since then I’ve read them, but now I’m kind of dying inside. I need more!

    Oh, Harry. I’ll revisit him one day. Each year I tell myself THIS will be the year I finally go back and re-read…but never make the time for it. 😦


    1. OMG Chew. I’m so sad that I’m all caught up and I’m just dying for the next volume. I’m not buying and reading the single issues… seems silly, since I have all the trades up through vol 8…

      HP and Outlander are books that I have to STOP myself from re-reading so that I have time to read other things. Otherwise, I’d basically be reading one of them all the time, lol.


  2. I’ve re-read HP a couple times. I was going about every other year for a while… but now it’s been three years and not looking good for any time soon. The problem is the more books I read, the more books I find that I want to re-read! (Let alone that ever-growing TBR…) My list today is jam packed, and I could easily have kept going!


  3. I’d love to re-read all Rowell books eventually. I also would love to own them all in paperback, too…maybe that should be on my Christmas wishlist this year!


  4. I always want to reread the Harry Potter books. They are the best. And right now I’m reading one of my old stand-by comfort books, Pamela Dean’s Tam Lin. The characters are annoying jerks in many ways but ugh I just love this book so much.


    1. Re-reading comfort books is the best. By the time I’m an old lady I’ll have read HP like 50 times and I’ll be able to recite tales of Harry’s adventures to neighborhood kids who actually want to hear the weird old lady talk, lol.


  5. I’ve slowly been working my way through Harry Potter again … it’s still so good! And yes! Outlander! I read the first book over and over again … I have to keep reminding myself that there are other books in the series. Hopefully I’ll catch up with those one day! And I was just thinking the other day that I need to read Pride & Prejudice again!
