Top 10 Tuesday: Books I'd reread

Julie over at My 5 Monkeys posted her Top Ten Tuesday list today and I thought it was a great idea created by The Broke & the Bookish.
So here's my top 10 Books I'd reread:

  1. On the Road by Jack Kerouac. There wasn't anything I didn't like about this semi-autobiographical journey of a book. Amazing.
  2. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. I read this book as a Sophomore in High School and was so moved by the main character's emotion. I can only imagine what it'd bring out in me as an adult.
  3. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I think I skipped a lot of pages in this epic, but it deserves a better, more thorough read.
  4. The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck. It's not my favorite Steinbeck novel, but it's the one that made me really think.
  5. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Please don't see this movie, it's SO bad in comparison to this book. 
  6. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough. I just finished this one about 2 weeks ago and I'm already thinking about rereading it. It spans so much time & so many intersecting stories.......
  7. Diet for a New America by John Robins. When I first read this, it was to hopefully understand the choices that some family members were making and I didn't take it seriously. I think I'm in a place where it would really sink in now.
  8. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. Here's another one that I read as a teenager and although I know it had an impact, I think if I read it now it might really be life-changing.
  9. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I LOVE this book. It's probably a little sick the way that I love Heathcliff, but I've always been a sucker for a slightly twisted soul. The bad boy that can only be saved by love, ha.
  10. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Sometimes when you think you're running away, you're really just running towards something better. 


  1. I really like your list. I would really like to reread Like Water for Chocolate as well, but I always forget about it.

Tell me what you really think, but please be respectful about it.
