The Top 10 Books I Could Re-Read for Ever seems like it would be an easy one but I’ve struggled a lot with trying to figure out which books would fall into this category. Thanks again to the Artsy Reader Girl for giving me a Top 10 that really made me think.
Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone
This has to be on the list for me, it might not be my favorite book in the series but it’s the reason why I love to read so of course I could re-read it forever. Of course my collection has grown, it’s hard not to collect everything from a series (if possible).
The Bear and The Nightingale
I actually haven’t re-read this one but I know I will. This is one of my all time favorites, with it’s magic and fantasy. I can’t get enough.
Like Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, I haven’t just re-read this, I’ve re-re-re-read it! There is something so magnificent about this first story. It always leaves me wanting to re-read the entire series.
Chronicles of Narnia
This is just one of those stories that every kid should have the pleasure of hearing read to them or maybe just one they read themselves. PS– how gorgeous is the book I have of it? It has ALL the stories and you can purchase it at Barnes and Noble.
This book left me emotionally wrecked, one of the true stories that I can say (other than A Man Called Ove) which did just that. I loved every second of this one and could re-read this over and over even though it depicts the horror of WWII.
A Man Called Ove
Ugh, where to begin with Ove, I feel like a little part of me is like him which made me love him so much. I could re-read this one over and over and honestly have given it to so many people — you’ll learn about loss, strength, friendship and maybe just appreciating everyone a little bit more in life.
A Court of Mist and Fury
Usually the third story in a (sort of) trilogy isn’t necessarily the best — it’s the middle book for a reason, to fill the holes left by the first and get you read for the last. A Court of Mist and Fury wasn’t that at all however. It was the perfect second story in a trilogy (though I guess now that Sarah J. Maas is continuing on it might not be considered a trilogy anymore).
While not pictured below, Poldark will always have a special place in my heart because it opened me up to a world I hadn’t seen yet — a world that was real and it made me love every minute of it. But it was also the characters that made the first story and then all the rest so memorable. I already know I’ll be re-reading this more than once.

The Kite Runner:
I haven’t read this one in awhile and not since I started this blog but as horrifying as this story is, I could re-read it forever. I remember the first time I read it in high school, I was so happy there was a book out there that depicted some of the awful times in the Middle East, information that my friends at the time had no clue about.
It’s hard not to appreciate The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings. Everything it brought to literature still amazes me. The Hobbit is still my favorite in the series, though it took me years to finally decide to read it, I’ll never remember the fun I had on Bilbo’s adventure.
What are the 10 books you could re-read forever? Any of them hit my list above? I’d love to know! I’m sure there’s a bunch I’m missing and maybe haven’t even read at all! Leave your comments below 🙂
