A meme by The Broke And The Bookish! Join the fun; leave us a comment! 🙂
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by Jo Rowling: I don’t re-read a lot of stuff from when I was a kid. Not unless it’s for a class, and I don’t have classes anymore! This one is the exception, though. I can read it always and still enjoy it!
- Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett: I am honestly shocked at myself that I haven’t yet listened to the BBC radio play.
- Tintin by Hergé: Gonna be honest, I can’t re-read this anymore and not be majorly annoyed. BUT I have a soft spot for the TV show which I used to watch with my Dad. Good times.
- Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer: I could re-read this on any given day. Or re-listen. Nathaniel Parker should do more audiobooks …
- The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot: I haven’t re-read this series since, I think, the eighth grade. But when I did start reading them, I was addicted. And now with the new series coming out, I’m thinking I might be inclined to revisit Mia’s diaries …
- Redwall by Brian Jacques: I don’t live in this world anywhere near as much as I did as a child, and my reactions upon the last reread were more critical and less whole-hearted an embrace. Even so, the draw was still there, if lessened; I could feel as well as remember why the Redwall books exercised the powerful hold over my imagination that they did.
- The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling: no surprises here! The first three are best for impulse rereads, unless the goal is to reread the entire series. We shall not discuss how many times I have done exactly that.
- The Old Kingdom books by Garth Nix – Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen (Clariel wasn’t written back then): I was worried, you know; I loved these books so much as a teen that it seemed unlikely they would be as good as I remembered. Happy surprise, they are!
- Silverwing and sequels by Kenneth Oppel: I wonder how many kids, like me, were utterly bewitched by bats because of these books?
- Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books about Alanna, Daine, and Kel: there are a few things that annoy me, but I still have to reread a Pierce book every so often. And there’s some great fanart out there.
- The Famous Five by Enid Blyton. Actually Secret Seven too. And well, anything by her. The Faraway Tree, Amelia Jane, The Naughtiest Girl, Mallory Towers. I read all her titles and loved them. I’m sure I won’t love them as much now being an aware reader but back then, they were amazing.
- Nancy Drew. I loved mysteries.
- Trixie Belden Mysteries. Can you sense a pattern here because I can!
- Anything by R. L. Stine though I particularly loved The Fear Street series.
- Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Oh I loved this book so much. I don’t know where I got the secondhand copy from but it was amazing and I read it and reread and internalized most of it. It was good times.
