Top 5 Wednesday: Favorites Always Worth Revisiting

Hi y’all and welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday! T5W is a weekly meme is hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes.  You can visit the Goodreads T5W group for more info. It’s been a while since I participated and I’m excited to get involved again! This week’s topic is a freebie so I’m throwing it back to just a few weeks ago with a spin on the favorites worth revisiting topic.

I decided to share my Top 5 always worth rereading books. These are the books that I will probably reread several times over my life because they are always worth returning to. Enjoy!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak // One of my favorites of all time. This is always worth a rereading. The writing is incredible and I love the story about the power of words.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen // I could have selected any Jane Austen novel here really. I love them all and am always up for a reread.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis // I love this series and am always impressed by how it inspires me in new ways each time I read them. I think 2019 will be a great year for a reread 🙂

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien // Another fantastic fantasy series that I’m reading right now. And I am remembering why it’s a classic and why I love it!

Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling // Do I need to explain this one? I love Harry Potter forever. Can’t wait to read these to my kids one day and reread them myself again and again.

BONUS: Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson // This was my first historical romance that I fell in love with and it’s still one of my favorites. It just makes my heart happy to reread it 🙂

DOUBLE BONUS: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens // This is a favorite Christmas read of mine and I try to read it every couple of years at least.

What books could you reread again and again?

  1. Some books I definitely plan to reread.

    Tale of Two Cities/ Great Expectations- I loved these books when I read them. I want to reread them sometime in the future. I only want to reread them because I really could not figure out why I even loved them in the first place. All I could figure out is I loved the protagonist, Pip, from Great Expectations, but my question was why. So when I get to each of these again, I plan to read at a much slower rate to try to figure out why on earth I even loved them.

    Les Misérables- definitely worth a reread especially the unabridged. I had to read this in one summer break since I was still college student, so I had to finish it before summer break ended. I just want to pick up this book again, and read it at a much slower pace. It is a masterpiece- if I had literally just discovered this book in the bookstore, no way would I have picked it up and wanted to read it or even buy it for that matter. The musical is why I read it in the first place.

    Just some that I want to reread- just to read at a slower pace than I did before- but will not reread these until after I read the eight other classics I own in the house that have not been read yet. I have a WIP at the moment, and cannot read anything right now. Plus, can’t go from classic to classic- have to place another genre in the middle.

    1. I love the idea of rereading classics at a slower pace. Les Mis is truly a masterpiece–took me a year to read it and loved it! Glad I had seen the musical before as well. I haven’t read Great Expectations since high school and would love to reread it (i remember enjoying it too!)

      I agree with breaking up classics with other genres. I do the same thing!

  2. I started dragging out my Harry Potter re-read. I don’t want it to end because who knows when I’ll get back to it! I didn’t realize it had been six years since I last read it because it feels like yesterday.
