Top Ten Tuesday – Rereadables

I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a while and thought it would be nice to get back to it. And what better way than to tell you my favorite books. The Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Please make sure you stop by and see what others are reading, so that you too can add to your ever-growing TBR pile.

Books I could reread forever

Yeah yeah yeah I know re-readables is not a word, but I like it and I very rarely make up words. I don’t have many books that I would would read over and over again and I doubt I can name 10.

And without further adieu

6. Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor

Why is the land so important to Cassie’s family? It takes the events of one turbulent year—the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she’s black—to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family’s lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride—no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

5. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe tells the story of Peter, Susan, Edmund & Lucy Pevensie. They discover a wardrobe in Prof. Digory Kirke’s house that leads to the magical land of Narnia, which is under the spell of the White Witch. They fulfill an ancient prophecy while in Narnia. The Pevensie children help Aslan & his army save Narnia from the evil White Witch, who’s reigned over Narnia in winter for 100 years.

4. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

3.  Edgar Allan Poe

Anything by Poe

2. Dear Martin by Nic Stone

Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can’t escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates. Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.

1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Orphaned as a child, Jane has felt an outcast her whole young life. Her courage is tested once again when she arrives at Thornfield Hall, where she has been hired by the brooding, proud Edward Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit. She falls in love. Hard.

  1. Jane Eyre and anything Poe are on my list for forever rereading too! I think I reread Jane Eyre almost every year – also Matilda from Roald Dahl.

    PS: I also nominated you for the Liebster Award if you want to do it.

  2. Everyone seems to have Jane Eyre on their list! I’m glad I’m rereading it this May …. I disliked it the first time I read it due to a not-so-great audio listening and the fact that I wasn’t giving it my full attention. I do love the Bronte’s so I think I’ll love it!

    • You’re right people aren’t reading it like they used to. I’ve asked a few people about it and they say it’s racist, but I disagree. I tell them it’s a coming of age story where Huck is finding himself and that in the end he does see Jim as a human being. And I tell folks you have to remember the time period in which a piece of literature was written. Anyway, getting off my high horse. Thanks for stopping by.
