TTT- I Rarely Reread but When I Do These are the Books I Pick Up!

TopTen Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This week’s topic is books that you could reread forever! I am not someone who rereads books very often, but these are books that I find myself picking up when I am in a reading slump or when I need comfort.

Cannery Row- John Steinbeck

Did you guts know that Cannery Row is my favourite book? I only talk about it all the time! It is the one book that I read at least once a year. There is something about it that brings me comfort and inspiration. Next week’s TTT topic is favourite quotes so don’t be surprised to see a quote from Cannery Row!

Harry Potter (obviously!)- J.K. Rowling

I am sure this will be on everyone’s TTT this week! Is there anything better than rereading Harry Potter?! I am already planning to reread this series at Christmas time. There is something about Harry Potter that makes me feel like a kid again. I think I will be rereading this series until the end of time!

A Man Called Ove- Fredrik Backman

A Man Called Ove is fantastic! I adore Ove and I actually kind of miss him! I want to reread this book this summer and fall in love with the grumpy yet charming Ove all over again.

I’ll Give You the Sun- Jandy Nelson

I’ll Give You the Sun is one of the most beautiful books that I have ever read! Jandy Nelson is a very talented writer and she created some of my favourite characters of all time. I think that this will be one of those books that becomes even better after every reread.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven- Mitch Albom

I think The Five People You Meet in Heaven is probably the book that I have read the most often. It is short and easy to reread. It is the book that I usually turn to when I am in a reading slump. All of Mitch Albom’s books are fantastic and completely re-readable.

The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald

I don’t know what it is about The Great Gatsby that makes it a book that I love rereading. It is one of my favourite classics and I always discover something new every time that I reread it. I have a few different editions of The Great Gatsby and I have read from every single one!

Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller

This is a slow-paced and character-driven novel that still manages to pack a punch. I love the mystery and how part of the story is told through letters. I think it is a book that I will turn to again soon! I want to look out for more of the symbolism and foreshadowing.

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

The Outsiders is the book that really sparked my love of reading and, every time that I reread it, it reminds me why! Some times it is nice to be taken back to that moment in my life. This book has really stood the test of time and it will forever be one of the books that I will reread!

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I read The Help when it first came out and fell in love with it instantly! I have read it a few times since then and I continue to love it every time. I also adore the movie and have rewatched it multiple times! The story is charming, hilarious, heartbreaking, and moving! It is everything that I look for in a book!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the books that had the biggest impact on me. It really opened my eyes and taught be a lot about empathy. I would still say that Atticus Finch is one of my biggest role models! It is comforting to be able to return to this story and characters in times of need.


Do you ever reread? I would love to know what books you reread most often.

  1. I think I’m one of a few people that still hasn’t read the Harry Potter series. I’ve just never been drawn to them. I’d only read them to see if they actually live up to the hype. Admittedly, I’ve only read of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, but I am intrigued by Cannery Row.

    1. I am not sure what it would be like reading Harry Potter for the first time as an adult! I grew up with the series so I am very biased!! Cannery Row is definitely not one of his well known books but I adore it. I love Of Mice and Men as well!

  2. I just glanced at my bookcase at my Harry Potter collection and thought maybe I should start from the beginning again after reading this post!

  3. The Help and HP are on my list too.. And A Man called Ove is on my TBR this year.. is it really that good? Im excited to read it. And Mitch Albom is one of my fave writers. 🙂
    Great list. 🙂

  4. I love this list so much, and I just added Cannery Row to my goodreads tbr, because I love “East of Eden” so much and Steinbeck is a master!!!!!!
    and I noticed Outsiders
    and I don’t know if I’ve already recommended to you one of my favorites, “Rumble Fish” by SE Hinton??? it’s so amazing, and for some reason not many people know about it???? <3 <3
    and OH MY GOD symbolism hunting is my favorite hobby 😀

  5. Great list! You’ve made me want to reread I’ll Give You the Sun, it’s been so long since I read it, but I remember being amazed at how beautiful it was. I’m slowly falling in love with rereading and my favorites to reread are: Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and of course, the Harry Potter series.

  6. Ahhh most of these books are tucked away in a far away TBR I hope to *someday* get around to! I wish I could get into classic reads but for some reason they’re so hard for me to stay focused on! Then again, that’s a general statement for any book lol!

    Except for Harry Potter, I’ve tried reading that one for years and though it has all the elements I love I just could not get into it for some reason!

    Here’s my list here;

  7. I didn’t know Cannery Row was your favorite book! It was an assigned reading for one of my American Lit classes in college and I devoured it! I thoroughly enjoyed it! Perhaps it’s time for me to do a re-read! Harry Potter all the way! Totally on my list, too.

  8. I am so excited about the sequel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven! I believe it’s coming out this year in November; The Next Person You Meet in Heaven.

  9. I just read A Man Called Ove and I already want to read it again! One of my all time favorite books. I love the characters and the story so much.

  10. omg true to gatsby and i’ll give you the sun and the help!! i’ve reread all of those and probably could a million times forever. this is also v exciting b/c a man called ove is on my tbr 🙂
