Top Ten Books I want to Re-read:
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic:
1. Moby Dick by Herman Melville - I read what I thought was the abridged version of this book a long time ago (around the time when I read and liked Enid Blyton) and I hated it. I saw this book in a bookshop years later and realized what I'd read was the original book and it is supposed to be pretty good. I need to re-read it!
2. The Book Thief by Makus Zusak - When I read this book, I just loved it. I want to re-read it to re-love it!
3. Catch 22 by Joseph Heller - I remember loving this book. But it was the kind of thing where you stay glued to a book for twenty hours straight without eating or sleeping; and later it seems very unreal; like the whole thing was just a big dream and you get back to your routine and reading that book is only a hazy memory. (Or, maybe, it only happens to me)
4. American Gods by Neil Gaiman - I just re-read Anansi Boys and it reminded me so much of American Gods that I want to read it again!
5. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - I miss Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs. Okay, I don't really miss Wormtail...
6. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett - Because I am only one re-read short of a thousand reads.
7. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein - The third time's the charm. When I read this for the first time I hated it. When I re-read it, I liked it. Maybe if I read it one more time, it could convince me to finally read the Lord of the Rings series.
8. On Writing by Stephen King - I do keep reading it over and over in parts. So often, however, that I don't remember the book as a whole at all.
9. Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris - I loved this book and I'd like to be reminded why.
10. The Lives of Christopher Chant by Diana Wynne Jones - Haven't read anything by her in a long time and I had enjoyed this book a lot!
