posted by soe 1:05 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share the top ten books we wish we could read again for the very first time:

  1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 
  2. The Night Circus
  3. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  4. A Wrinkle in Time
  5. The Polar Express
  6. The Color Purple
  7. The Eyre Affair
  8. A Man Called Ove
  9. Landline
  10. A Study in Scarlet Women

For some titles on the list, it’s to recapture the pure joy I had reading it for the first time. For others, it’s because I adore the characters and would love to have another quarter century back to get to know them again. And for still others, not knowing the ending brings some magic.

But at least I can reunite with them any time I choose.

What books do you wish you could rediscover for the first time?

Category: books. There is/are 8 Comments.

I’ll never forget reading Wrinkle in Time when I was in sixth grade. When I was a classroom teacher, I always read it aloud to my fifth graders.

I’ve heard great things about A Man Called Ove.

I couldn’t come up with much for this topic, but the HP books were the first ones that came to mind. Such a great series!

Happy TTT!
