Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-Read Forever

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, we’re talking about books we could re-read forever. This is basically going to be a collection of my favorites, so let’s get started.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling // Yes, this is obviously on my list. Despite what Rowling is saying on Twitter and the fact that I’m sick and tired of her wanting credit for diverse characters she never wrote, I still love this series. It is my childhood, and it has shaped a part of me to this day. 

Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop // I only discovered this series 5 years ago or so, but I’ve read it multiple times since. Especially the first book! I just love it so much. 

Eragon (Inheritance Cycle #1) by Christopher Paolini // Another childhood fave. This one is a nostalgic read for me! While I do see the flaws within the first book (especially the writing since he was still a teenager) the last 2 books always manage to blow me away. Something I particularly love here is the depiction of religion and vegetarianism.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt // I haven’t re-read this yet! I read it for the first time in 2016, I believe, and it absolutely blew my mind. I’ve been dying to re-read it since but it just seems like a bit of a commitment at the moment.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo // Another one I haven’t actually re-read yet, but definitely plan on doing in the future! I have so much love for these characters.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah // This is one of my all-time favorite books. Once again, I haven’t re-read it yet… I definitely will though. I just made my mom buy a Dutch copy of this book when we saw it on sale because I just need everyone to read this book.

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch // This is a series I will re-read before the next book will be released. I have no idea when that will be, because Lynch is currently focusing on his mental health (as he should!!). I feel like I will gain so much more from this book upon re-reading it though, as the plot is so intricate. 

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller // Listen. I have read this book twice. I have cried twice. I will re-read this book for the rest of my life, and cry every single time. 

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli // This one I will re-read forever, because Molly just resonates with me. I recognize so much of myself in her! 

Quiet by Susan Cain // This book means so much to me. It started my journey of self-love, and accepting who I am. An introvert. That sounds so easy to most of you. To me, it wasn’t -and especially not in university.

Those are 10 of the books I will probably be re-reading for the rest of my life. Have you read any of these? Which books are on your list?

  1. The Secret History and Locke Lamora have to be two of my most-reread books (although it’s now been yeeeeears since I reread The Secret History – like you, I really want to, but …it’s a commitment. And there are so many books on the shelf I haven’t read yet!)


  2. This list made me really want to read The Secret History and The Song of Achilles! Especially TSoA because I love books that make me cry.

    Great post. ☺


  3. I have seen Six of Crows on so many lists, but it’s totally justified. That duology is one of the best out there! Also, YAS to Quiet. The book means so much to me as well. It really helped me understand myself better and I will always cherish it for that alone.


  4. The Secret History is one of my favorite books, I was considering adding it to my own list but I have only read it once and still deciding if I will ever get time to re-read! I am reading The Goldfinch right now and so far I like it. I couldn’t finish The Little Friend..


  5. So many books I’ve been meaning to read on this list! I did really enjoy Quiet, The Secret History, Eragon, and HP (of course). I’ve heard fantastic things about The Nightingale!
