Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Reread Forever

Posted February 27, 2018 by meezcarrie in Christian, Top Ten Tuesday / 35 Comments


Happy Tuesday, friends! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is ‘books i could reread forever’, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else posts too. Because this is one of my very quotes:

‘Tell me what you read and I’ll tell you who you are’ is true enough, but I’d know you better if you told me what you reread.

~ François Mauriac

So let’s all get to know each other by our rereads today!

There are several more-recent books that, if I had time to reread anymore, I would definitely be rereading often. Books such as The Lady & The Lionheart by Joanne Bischof, Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano, Meant to be Mine by Becky Wade, The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall and Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham, for instance. Hmmm… those books all feature my book boyfriends….  curious, that 🙂

However, sadly, it’s all I can do to read books once through these days, much less reread my faves.  So on today’s post, I’m talking about the books I’ve reread most often over the years. Books which have stood the test of time for me so, clearly, I could reread them forever!

…and a couple of entire series that I’ve reread so often I could probably quote you every word from every book! (let’s not test it though)

What about you? Would any of my rereads make your list too?

  1. I am not a re-reader. It’s not that there aren’t certain books I’d REALLY like to re-read, it’s that I have too many (either on my shelf or sent as review copies) new TBR books to read. But someday I do hope to re-read some favorites.

    Fun to see nostalgic books like “When Calls the Heart” on your list (the memories!), and though I’d forgotten, I think someone told my Lynn’s ‘Pursuit’ novel was grand. Someday I’ll have to read that one too. 🙂

    Happy Top Ten Tuesday.

    I also have too many that I haven’t read to reread books but I did enjoy Terri Blackstock’s series and Dee Henderson’s book. I also enjoyed Blackstock’s Newpointe 911 series and I did read Gone With The Wind more than once.

  3. Megan Hamsher

    The only books I’ve re-read multiple times
    isn’t even Christian Fiction …
    veterinarian James Herriot.

    With 1,000+ e-books and about 4 dozen physical books, who has time to re-read when there’s so many new and “new-to-me” books to read??

  4. Chateau of Echoes (Siri Mitchell–and I think I’m into double digits now on the reread. It’s a total comfort-read book for me.), Vienna Prelude, The Scarlet Thread, Three. Love all of those and have reread them all.

  5. Andrea Stephens

    I am a sometimes re-reader. Though, lately, I’ve become a re-listener. I’ve listened to several Karen Witemeyer books, currently working my way The Archer Brothers series.
    Books are friends, vacations, rainy days, sunshiny days too. I like being able to pick up those favorite friends for a visit every once in a while.

  6. Carrie

    There are not many books that I have re-read because there are so many I want to read for the first time, but I have read Pretense by Lori Wick multiple times.

  7. Rebecca Maney

    I love to re-read. And I do it a lot! So here are a few I have read multiple times over the years.

    Two children’s books, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” by C. S. Lewis and “The Magic Bicycle” by John Bibee.

    Add to that “Remembered” by Tamera Alexander, “Sweetwater Gap” by Denise Hunter”, “The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn” by Lori Benton, “My Stubborn Heart” by Becky Wade, “Twist of Faith” by Pepper Basham, and ” One Plus One Equals Trouble” by Sondra Kraak.

    I too have re-read collections by Dee Henderson, Karen Witemeyer, Sarah Ladd, Irene Hannon, Regina Jennings, Roseanna White, Tamera Alexander, Deeanne Gist, . . .

    I am getting ready to read “Brentwood’s Ward” by Michelle Griep for the fourth time!

  8. Michelle Lunsford

    Oh yes, Karen Witemeyer’s Short-Straw Bride makes my re-read list, along with Stealing the Preacher. Well, basically that entire series. I love those Archer boys and their ladies.

    My re-reads tend toward authors as much as individual books. In addition to Witemeyer, Pepper D. Basham, Kristi Ann Hunter, Melissa Tagg, Deeanne Gist, Denise Hunter.

    Then, when I need my literary Star Wars fix, Tim Zahn is my favorite re-read go to, especially his Heir to the Empire and Hand of Thrawn series.

  9. Eric

    My entry for audiobooks:
    Harry Potter Series
    and
    A Damsel in Distress by P.G. Wodehouse

    can’t … stop … listening …

    Currently, I don’t have a lot of time for re-reading, (mostly I’m busy reading awesome new books!) but on occasion I do.
    My favorite re-reads are from my childhood days-Anne of Green Gables series,Little House books, Wizard of Oz series, Mary Poppins series, Narnia, A Little Princess (and I could go on…I just love sharing these with my own daughters! 😉 )
    My favorite re-reads now…some of these are because they are convenient on my own bookshelf (as opposed to having to get them through the library) Dee Henderson’s books, some of Lori Wick’s series, Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, to name just a few.

  11. I have a few re-reads. Lori Wick’s books. Her first series and The Princess.
    Georgette Heyer Regencies (Think The Count of Monte Cristo and the old part of Kate and Leopold.)
    And Lillian Jackson Braun’s The Cat Who series. Cozy mysteries for the win.

  12. Elly

    Re-reads? My top re-read is DEFINITELY Francine Rivers’ Mark of the Lion Trilogy! Other multi-re-reads of mine include Bryan M. Litfin’s The Chiveis Trilogy, Tamara Leigh’s Age of Faith Series, Lisa T. Bergren’s River of Time Series (the original three, in particular), and pretty much everything by Melanie Dickerson! (Oh, and I can’t forget, of course, that I’ve re-read the Anne of Green Gables and Elsie Dinsmore books more times than I can count!)

  13. I never understood rereading books until Harry Potter came around and now I completely get it. This Top Ten has me itching for me to participate, but I already blogged this morning. I think I’ll put up a post on my Facebook page though so that I can still share and maybe get some interaction!

  14. Rachael

    I reread all the time (otherwise why own books?). I’ve probably read Beauty by Robin McKinley a dozen or more times, but I love rereading all my Jen Turano novels (they still make me laugh, even on read #3), The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz, My Stubborn Heart by Beck Wade, Karen Witemeyer and Cathy Marie Hake novels. Basically any book I own, I have/intend to reread multiple times.

  15. You have some great books on your list. I’ve never reread Short-Straw Bride, but I can definitely see doing that someday! Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  16. Chrystal

    Definitely “Christy” by Catherine Marshall. Also, my favorite rereads would be all books by: Karen Witemeyer, Deeanne Gist, Tamera Alexander, and Mary Connealy p.

  17. Becky Smith

    I love to re-read books. I have old Victorian novels that I re-read every year. I have re-read Susan May Warren’s books, Rachel Hauck’s books, and several more authors, especially when I want to remember what happened before the new book comes out.

  18. Susan Snodgrass

    I agree with your choices but haven’t read Dawn Crandall. I would add Susan May Warren and Laura Frantz.

  19. Reading The Hiding Place once was enough for me. I tend to be unable to go back and visit emotionally tough books like that. I still haven’t read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. I should do that…soon. 🙂
