This week’s topic is Books I Could Re-Read Forever. What a topic!!!! I don’t tend to re-read a lot anymore – the overwhelming TBR mountain might have something to do with that! – but there are many books that are always there for me on my shelves that I can happily go back to when the dreaded reading slump strikes. as I often find that going back to an old favourite is the perfect remedy – so prepare for a list of old favourites that never grow old!!
MALLORY TOWERS by ENID BLYTON
My childhood!!! The whole series was wonderful to me and I desperately wanted to go to boarding school so I could have the same kind of adventures as Darrell and her friends!
THE SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE aged 13 3/4 by SUE TOWNSEND
Adored this when it came out as it felt so different to anything else I’d read and I still love to go back and see how awkward Adrian was!
NARNIA SERIES by C.S.LEWIS
The whole series had me captivated and I have our old local GP to thank, as he used to have a little lending library and he let me borrow these from that!
HARRY POTTER series by J.K. ROWLING
More escapism reading that I always seem to discover something new from everytime I pick it up to relive the magic!
REBECCA by DAPHNE DU MAURIER
This was a fairly recent discovery for me, but it has taken a special place in my heart!
TWILIGHT by STEPHENIE MEYER
The initial book in this series had such an impact on me as a reader that I can always go back to it to get all the vampire feels!
BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY by HELEN FIELDING
THE HOBBIT by J.R.R. TOLKIEN
I love all of Middle Earth so can happily read any of these time and time again!
THE BOOK THIEF by MARKUS ZUSAK
One of the first books I think that made me cry and it has done everytime I’ve read it since!!
ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS by LEWIS CARROLL
No list of re-reads can be complete without this world! Still discovering new things from the stories everytime I read them and they are just as wonderful now as they were back in my childhood!
Loved this topic today! Had so much fun going back to some of my favourite books! Hope you’ve enjoyed it too! Any of these on your lists?!
