Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Reread Multiple Times But Have Only Read Once

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I have done a fair amount of rereads, of course I've read Harry Potter a million times, and favorites like Little Women and The Historian. Mostly what I reread is series. I tend to reread the first few books in a series when the new book comes out. But there are plenty of favorites that I have not reread a bunch of times. So I decided to spin this a little bit and talk about the books I love but haven't read multiple times.

1.) The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo
This is one of my all-time favorite books, it's the book that inspired me to start this blog, and yet I have only read it once. I want to reread it again and I need to get the audiobook so I can do just that.

2.) Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte
I read this book like eight years ago and read it so much faster than I thought because I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. I really want to reread it as well and think it would be a great audiobook.

3.) Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
I'm a big Brandon Sanderson fan and this is one of my favorite series. I feel like if I reread it I would notice all the clues and hints that I missed the first time and honestly I'm a little nervous about that. But also probably I will love it because it's that good.

4.) The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater
I know plenty of people of people have read this book multiple times and despite the fact that I loved this books so much I am not one of those people. But I want to be.

5.) The Magicians by Lev Grossman
I love this series a lot. It has been a long time since I read the first book, and I want to reread the whole series. I have wanted to reread the series and listen to the audiobooks when the TV series first came out but I haven't done that yet.

6.) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
The movie is coming out soon and I really need to reread this one before I watch the movie. I actually want to read the book. I listened to the audio, which is great, but I think it would be interesting to read the book this time around.

7.) Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
I planned to reread this book when Hunting Prince Dracula came out but that was when I was moving and my reading time got really messed with. But I totally plan to do it when Escaping from Houdini comes out.

8.) Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
This was my favorite book of last year and I want to reread it. I'm going to a signing for Mackenzi's new book this week and I just bought a copy of it so it's making me want to reread. Although I'd probably listen to the audiobook.

9.) The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
I really love this series and yet I have only read each of the books once, even when new books have come out. But it's been so long that when the next book comes out I am definitely going to have to reread and refresh.

10.) A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
So I watched the TV show first, I know... SHAME, and have only read the books once. I really need to reread to get all the theories flowing, especially before the final season of the show comes out.

There you have it, all the books I want to have read a million times but have only read once. Have you read any of these books multiple times? What books have you read a bunch? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. WOO!!! READY PLAYER ONE!!! I can't wait for the movie & wish you still lived here so we could get the club together to go!!

  2. If I would do this post it would only have books by Eoin Colfer on them. I re-read the Artemis Fowl series every year and also Airman. xD

  3. I'm due for a re-read of Gentlemen's Guide. I liked it a lot, but somehow I didn't *love* it the way everyone seems to. I think a re-read might help me jump on the bandwagon. Power to you if you can read ASOIAF again. The first time was enough of a challenge!
