Top Ten Tuesday is a hugely popular weekly meme hosted by the lovely people of The Broke and the Bookish. I sometimes participate when the topic strikes my fancy – and it did this week, as I’m supposed to list the top ten books I want to reread. I reread a lot. I’ve even written about it here – but this is a list of books I haven’t reread yet but will do so in the future if I find the time!
The first five are all books in a series that have a sequel coming up (or it’s been a while and I want to continue the series) so I’m hoping to reread them in order to freshen my memory; the rest are those that are simply so good I want to go through them again.
- The Wise Man’s Fear (Kingkiller Chronicle #2) by Patrick Rothfuss. I reread The Name of the Wind before The Wise Man’s Fear came out and it turned to be a really good idea because the story is so detailed (and wonderful).
- Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – Shadow Scale is coming out this spring!!
- Sabriel (Abhorsen #1) by Garth Nix – I read this one years ago and can’t even remember what it’s about. I’ll have to change that soon!
- The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastards #3) by Scott Lynch – I know the next book won’t be out for a while, but I *love* Lynch’s writing.
- Linger (Wolves of the Mercy Falls #2) by Maggie Stiefvater – I’ve had Forever on my bookshelf for a while now and I want to finish the series, but I can’t really remember what happened. I want to read more of Stiefvater’s books, because I’ve read really great reviews lately.
- A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon – this is one of the few “family sagas” I’ve enjoyed. It’s brilliant, funny, and tragic and I cannot recommend it enough.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I’ve been wanting to reread this one because of the movie. I haven’t seen it yet, so maybe I’ll manage to get it read before seeing it.
- Les Aurores Montreales by Monique Proulx – these are perhaps the best short stories I’ve ever read. So beautiful.
- Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami – I really like Murakami’s novels and this one was a favourite when I read it. I remember the awesome weirdness of the story and some great quotes (I read it in English translation, of course, not Japanese!).
- Watership Down by Richard Adams – I enjoyed this one very much as a kid (in Slovenian translation!), so I want to see if the impression still holds.
