Top Ten Tuesday: Rereads

toptentuesday

The topic of this Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is top ten books I want to reread.

As it happens, I’ve been planning to make this January a rereads-only month because a) January sucks, b) I need to do some serious weeding of my bookshelves, and c) I never seem to reread anything anymore. Here are ten books I’m hoping to get to.

142011. Susanna Clark- Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

2. Peter Ho Davies- The Welsh Girl

3. Haven Kimmel- Something Rising (Light & Swift)

4. Tea Obreht- The Tiger’s Wife

5. Ali Smith- The Accidental

6. Tod Wodicka- All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well

7. Edward P. Jones- The Known World

8. Adam Johnson- The Orphan Master’s Son

9. Garth Nix- Lirael (and series)

10. Meredith Pierce- The Darkangel (and series)

We’ll see if I can get through all that in January. As for books I reread often–or more accurately used to reread often–The Sound and the Fury, Frankenstein, anything and everything by Lynn Flewelling, and The Secret Garden are my old standbys.

  1. I’ve not read most of these – but I could definitely reread Susanna Clarke! Such an excellent read and lots to take on board so this would be a good choice for a reread – an extra chance to pick up all the little bits that you didn’t quite pick up upon.

  2. I haven’t read any of these books, but they sound pretty interesting!

  3. Good luck with your January reading – it looks like you’ve got a good month lined up. I’m hoping to reread Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell soon too, ideally before the BBC adaptation is released. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll ever reread The Darkangel. I read it while serving jury duty and sequestered for a particularly awful trial. Not the books fault – I’m not sure there is a good reading choice for that kind of occasion!
    Thanks for your list, Em
