Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Could Re-read Forever

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly featured hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I am the kind of person who, if I find something I love, will want to read it/watch it/eat it again and again. This might explain why I have devoured the whole first season of HBO’s Girls (for the third time since it came out) within the past few days – (re)experiencing something you know you will enjoy is like slipping into a comfortable warm bath, with the added reassurance that it’ll be a worthy investment of your time.

  1. I particularly agree with you on The Goldfinch and on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I have to admit I never read Matilda. I am planning to rectify that as soon as possible. Great post.


  2. Jane Eyre is on so many lists! I look forward to rereading that one this year. And I can’t wait to read Great Expectations. I hope to get to some Roald Dahl with my kids as they get older – I don’t think I’ve read his books since I was younger! And I’m very intrigued by A Little Life – it sounds really good.

    • Isn’t Jane Eyre wonderful? Easily one of my favourite classics, along with Great Expectations. I always feel a bit apprehensive when I read Dickens because I know it’s going to be a big time investment, but it’s always worth it! A Little Life is incredible, my best book of 2016 without a doubt, but very traumatic reading so proceed with caution!
