Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon.
I read a lot of books each year, and while there are some books I always re-read at least once a year there are others which I haven’t picked up in ages. Looking through my bookshelves and my Goodreads read list I discovered a lot of series which I loved the first time I read them but which I haven’t picked up since. These are probably my top ten favourite series that I haven’t read in over a year which are now high on my re-reads list.
Splintered by A.G. Howard
This is my ultimate favourite Alice in Wonderland re-telling. Although Ensnared was only released at the beginning of last year I need to go back and re-read the whole trilogy again.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This is one of my all-time favourite series; it made me believe in magic, it made me want to visit Prague. Each book just seemed to get better and better and the ending was perfect.
Angelfall by Susan Ee
I wasn’t a massive fan of the last book but I loved the first two and overall I enjoyed the whole trilogy. Like Splintered and Daughter of Smoke and Bone I need to go back and re-read all three books.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I haven’t picked these books up since I read the last one after it was released, but I remember really enjoying the story and the characters. This is a brilliant trilogy and I’m excited to go back and re-read it soon.
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
I read this book for the first time in high school, and it was the first time I was really hooked on a series. I can clearly remember desperately waiting for the last book in the series. I can’t remember any exact details on what happened though so a re-read is definitely needed.
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
I love Maria V. Snyder and Inside Out was one of the first sci-fi books I ever read. I really enjoyed the series, though it wasn’t my favourite of her books.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I am way behind on Clare’s Shadowhunter books, and with Lady Midnight having been released I really should go back and re-read the whole series; both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices books.
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
I think this was probably the first time travel series I’d ever read, well it’s definitely the first I can remember reading. I adore these books and the movies were brilliant as well. I’d like to re-read the series before the third movie comes out in Summer.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
I really enjoyed this series the first time I read it. The plot was brilliant but it was the characters I loved the most. The journey Ruby makes in this series alone was so brilliantly developed, and her relationships with all the other characters were wonderful to read.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Of course Harry Potter had to be one this weeks’ list.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what some of your favourite books you’d like to re-read are, or your favourite books you just haven’t spoken about in a while are.
