Top Ten Tuesday #115

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books I Could Re-read Forever

I re-read a lot, so basically these are the ten books I re-read the most. I just love delving back into those fictional worlds, and I always find something new. Another thing I do is seek out the audiobooks so I can listen to specific chapters whenever I want. Seriously, audiobooks are amazing.
  1. I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
    The school librarian handed this to me when I was thirteen, and I've read it at least once a year since.
  2. Lucas by Kevin Brooks
    If I want a good cry, I pick up this book. I don't even need to get past the prologue to start sobbing.
  3. Pirates! by Celia Rees
    I absolutely love how kick ass Nancy and Minerva are. I love their adventures and although I always know how it will end I can't help but get caught up
  4. Junk by Melvin Burgess
    I was probably a little bit too young when I first read this, but it has stayed with me. I love how my thoughts about the characters has changed over the years.
  5. Shadows and Strongholds by Elizabeth Chadwick
    Oh, my original OTP. Hawise and Brunin and are just ❤ and I love them so much.
  6. Waiting for Callback by Perdita and Honor Cargill
    This is my go-to book for when I need cheering up, Elektra, her family, and their escapades are hilarious and perfect for the job.
  7. Possessed by Kate Cann
    This was probably the first book I read where the main character was Definitely Working Class and I loved it then and always will.
  8. Slated by Teri Terry
    When I want to get angry at the world, I read Slated. Yes it's dystopia, but it's so relevant and so powerful it resonates with today's world.
  9. Darkmere by Helen Maslin
    Honestly, my love for this book. I just absolutely love it in all of it's Skins-esque horror and dilapidated castle goodness.
  10. Soulless by Gail Carriger
    I don't even like vampires or werewolves (I say) but this is a series I love. I just wish I knew what the hedgehog incident was.

What is your favourite book to re-read?

  1. Waiting for Callback is fantastic, and I'm really hoping I can squeeze In a reread before It's a Wrap is released. I also like the sound of Darkmere, though I've never read it 😊

  2. The only book on your list that I've read is Slated, and I agree that it's so relevant and brilliant to read when you're angry at the state of the world. I still haven't read the last book in the trilogy, so I'm going to try to schedule in a reread of the first two books so I can finally finish it off!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!
