Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The theme this week is Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time – I found it very difficult to pick just 10 for this topic, but here is what I’ve ended up with:
- Matilda by Roald Dahl – my all time favourite book. I’ve read probably hundreds of times by this point and would love nothing more than to read this magical story for the first time ever again.
- How to Disappear by Gillian McAllister – this was by far one of the best thrillers with a twist I’ve read in AGES and I’d love to experience it again.
- The Sight of You by Holly Miller – this was a beautiful book, which I’d love to read for the first time again without knowing how it ends.
- The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair by Joel Dicker – another one with a great ending, would love to read again without knowing what happened.
- The Midnight Library by Matt Haig – an amazing story which I’d love to re-live.
- A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara – a devastating story which I will re-read, if only it could be for the first time.
- Half a World Away by Mike Gayle – this was a truly touching story which I’d like to read again without knowing the ending.
- Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro – a very unexpected story. One that was recommended to me and stole my heart.
- Everything ever written by Agatha Christie – I know , I know, this is cheating and I also haven’t read them all… yet. BUT all the ones I have read, I’d love to read again for the first time to unfold the mysteries again.
- One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern – Another touching story, which I’d love to experience again without knowing how it ends.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday, drop me a comment and let me know where you love reading!
