Booklicious: 10 Favorite Rereads

January 13, 2014


Rereads are a peculiar thing. They're not necessarily my favorite books—although some of them are—and they're certainly not all the best books I've ever ever read. But there's something about each one that keeps me coming back. It could be the story's atmosphere, the things I've learned while reading it, or even just the circumstances and mood surrounding the first read, which then bonded the book to my memories. Or, you know, it could just be mindless fun.

So without further ado, here are my 10 favorite rereads, a motley crew if ever there was one:

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader [C. S. Lewis]
Notes from a Small Island [Bill Bryson]
An Old-Fashioned Girl [Louisa May Alcott]
Anne of the Island [L. M. Montgomery]
Dancing Star: the Story of Anna Pavlova [Gladys Malvern]
Gloria [Keith Maillard]
Jane Eyre [Charlotte Bronte]
Confessions of a Shopaholic [Sophie Kinsella]
Pride and Prejudice [Jane Austen]
The French Lieutenant's Woman [John Fowles]

What are your 10? The conversation continues over at Facebook and Tumblr.
