The Top 20 Revisited Reads:
- The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling
– yup. I’ve read and reread. Not all of them, but they are books I think I’ll continue to read.
- The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
– Of course. I read this every year for a whoile
- Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
– I’ve read it. And will reread it at some stage.
- The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
– See LOTR. Although I’d be less likely to reread this as it is more kiddy than LOTR
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
– studied at college. And one I actually did read there. And I think I even reread it then. Not my fav. but well worth a read
- 1984 by George Orwell
– I’ve only read this the once.
- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
– Never read. I did start it but couldn’t get very far. Probably good for a train journey or the like though
- The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
– Read this, and the other Narnia books, as a child, and have reread them in the past. Didn’t like them as much on my last reading so probably won’t be rereading any time soon, although I wouldn’t be totally averse to them.
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
– studied this for my Leaving and reread it then. And I would again, and again.
- Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
– I’ve only read this one the once. But it was v good and I would have no problems with rereading it
- Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson
Read it. And enjoyed it. Don’t know if I’d give it another go though
- To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
– studied this for the Jnr. Cert, and reread it then. Must do so again at at some stage.
- Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews
– read this as a teenager, and a few of the sequels, but I have no desire to reread it.
- Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
– awww. The first book I ever bought. Aged 8. And I reread and reread and reread it as a child. And I’ve just bought a copy recently, so this is definitely on the reread pile
- Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
– Another that easily makes my personal rereading pile. I love this book
- The Bible
– Does going to mass and listening to bits count as having read it?
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
– read it once and didn’t really get all the fuss. I do keep meaning to give it another go though, so we’ll have to wait and see.
- Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
– I have this one in Sligo but haven’t opened it up yet.
- Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
– I’ve never owned it, but I have borrowed it from the library and reread it at least twice.
- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
– this is one I’ve only read once. And I wasn’t blown away by it. Don’t think I’ll be rereading it any time soon
So, which have you reread? And are there any other books you love to reread?
