Yes, there ARE books I would like to re-read. Will I though? Probably not. There are just SO many wonderful titles out there; I have SO many review commitments; there are SO many series I want to start; there are SO many series I want to finish; I’m not getting any younger, etc.
I promised myself over a year ago that I would re-read a favorite title from my twenties (just to see if, and how much, my reading tastes have changed over the years), and I still haven’t gotten around to re-reading it. Some other book keeps pushing it further down the queue.
The Top TEN novels I would RE-READ – if I was to RE-READ
- “A man called Ove” by Fredrik Backman (an all-time favourite)
- “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë (my favourite classic novel)
- “The shell seekers” by Rosamund Pilcher (an old, feel-good, favourite)
- “The tree of hands” by Ruth Rendell (a favourite by one of my favourite authors)
- “Caedmon’s song” by Peter Robinson (a stand-alone favourite)
- “A Prologue to love” by Taylor Caldwell (read over 30 years ago)
- “The mirror” by Marlys J. Millhiser (read over 30 years ago)
- “Garnethill” by Denise Mina (the title that got me obsessed with thrillers)
- “The auctioneer” by Joan Samson (read over 30 years ago – chilling read)
- “The forgotten garden” by Kate Morton (read 8 years ago)
