Listed: 10 Books I am Looking Forward to Rereading

One of my goals from 2012 is to reread some of the books I own. I’ve been taking a look through what I have to start myself thinking about exactly what books I’m going to want to get to first, and there are just so many that I want to grab and explore again! So, I thought it might be fun to have today’s Listed feature ten of the books I am thinking about rereading.

I started my book blog about six years ago, so I am only looking at books that I haven’t read in the past six years. Otherwise, this list would get out of control very quickly. As it is, I’ve already had a very hard time picking only ten that I want to throw on this list – there are just so many that I want to reread!

  1. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. Originally Published 1995. LT
  2. Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery. Originally Published 1923. LT
  3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. Originally Published 1948. LT
  4. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Originally Published 1937. LT
  5. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Originally Published 1868. LT
  6. Persuasion by Jane Austen. Originally Published 1818. LT
  7. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Originally Published 1936. LT
  8. Green Rider by Kristen Britain. Originally Published 1998. LT
  9. Beyond the Hanging Wall by Sara Douglass. Originally Published 1996. LT
  10. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Originally Published 1818. LT

    I really want to reread more, too. From your list there are many I should read for the first time, though…

    (gah. there it starts again)

  • Memory

    I also hope to reread I CAPTURE THE CASTLE this year. I’ve got a big list of others, too, organized by the author’s nationality. Next month, for example, I want to focus on Antipodean authors, with rereads from folks like Markus Zusak, Elizabeth Knox and Juliet Marillier.

    good list and good idea.. I do that every so often with certain books that I love love love. Save the Hobbit for late in the year (fall-ish) as the movie will come out next December! I hope to get to reread the Hobbit myself close to the time.. I have no doubts that Peter Jackson will do it justice as he did with LotR. I would love to reread more right now.. I feel like reading what I know I love rather then hoping it’s “as good as…”.. but with 145 tbr books I can’t do that right now lol…but I may toss one or two in this year.

    I’ve got to reread The Hobbit as well. And probably Little Women. I also want to reread Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Underworld series since the last book is out this year.

    I’d like to read Persuasion and Frankenstein this year, as I haven’t read either before.
