Top Ten Tuesday (7)



This week was so much fun but I had a bit of a hard time thinking of novels that I wish I could read again for the first time. I guess it’s because I can’t think of what it was like before I read a lot of them!
So, here’s my Top Ten Books I Wish I Could Read Again For the First Time in no particular order;

1. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling
I’m pretty sure that I’ve read this novel about 12 times since it came out (more than any other in the series).
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The thrill, the cold-blooded murder, the romance, the game! I loaned this novel out to one of the pharmacy technicians where I work and she loved it too.
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
LOVE! Just love.  
4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I’ve been thinking about this novel (and Anna) since I read them a couple of weeks ago and I just want to read it again and again and again.
5. The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
This was one of the few series where (since all books were out already) I read one right after the other. In fact, I was so angry when I couldn’t get a copy of the last novel from the library that I caved and listened to it on audio book.
6. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
I read this one years ago and Elena is my favourite of her characters – especially in this series.
7. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
I didn’t know that this one was even a novel until about the 100th time that I watched the anime movie. Of all the books in the Howl trilogy this one is by far m favourite!
8. Queen of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Ok, let me clarify on this one. Yes, this novel has yet to be released BUT years ago it was posted online and I read it there as each chapter was posted. Let me tell you, reading it when it comes out next year (which is too far away!) WILL be like reading it again for the first time!
9. The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
I inhaled this novel while on spring break in Cuba my second year of university. And then I saw the movie (which doesn’t hold a candle in comparison). The book was definitely far better!
10. Tamora Pierce’s novelsI started with the original Circle quartet and evolved from there. Every so often I still like to re-read them!


As always, check out The Broke and the Bookish for more Top Ten fun!

I have a feeling that Harry Potter is going to be very popular tonight. The Hunger Games is also an excellent selection. I loved The Lightning Thief and I thought Anna and the French Kiss was pretty good. Now Chapters needs to hurry up and send my copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door.

Harry Potter and Hunger Games are on my list as well! Percy Jackson is also an awesome, awesome, awesome choice! I should have put that on my list as well. :)

#9 - hmm I wondered how it compared to the movie. I might have to give the book a try.

I've got 3 of the same! Here's my list.

Alexa said...

You have a great list! I agree with so many of your choices, which I think is awesome. :)

Howl's Moving Castle really is awesome. I wish I could read all of Diana Wynne Jones's books for the first time again, since she is no more, so there won't be any new ones. I love that woman..

Oh Harry Potter. I totally agree there. I have never read anything by Phillipa Gregory, but I have heard good things about her. I might pick the Other Boleyn Girl up-I did like the movie.

The Other Boleyn Girl was such a great book. You should read her Wideacre trilogy if you haven't.
