Top Ten Tuesday Top Ten Tuesday - reReads
Top Ten Tuesday...hosted graciously by our dear friends over at The Broke and the Bookish are asking this week what books we wanted to re-read...huh? OH..re-read yeah. Got it. Oh! You mean list them..now! Ok...
See I do have few I can list because I have time when my attention span isn't the best and I find my mind can wander even when I'm reading something as easily as it can when I'm not doing anything.
So there are these books that may have not made the impression they should have and then there are those I read so long ago my old old mind has a hard time remembering details about what they were about.
And then there are those books that I didn't read really I SHOVED through to get to the end usually because I liked them and really really wanted to find out what happened or because I hated them and wanted to find out what happened....except the yucky ones I probably don't want to re-read.
And then there are the loves, the ones I'd love to have time to revisit and see if I love them still like I loved them then.
So those are my 10. There are others, like Little Women, Watership Down, The Wump World, every Harry Potter, but there are so many new loves out there to discover...that sounded bad, like I'm a lit nympho or something! ;)
My next favorite thing to re-reading in the mean time is when I get to turn somebody on to one of my favorite books and have them love it too! Even better when its one of my girls.
Best yet is when it's both of them!! Which was true with the Dark Tower Series. We all love it, we all still talk about it and one of these days I think my youngest may just genetically engineer her own BillyBumbler (a dog size racoon/dog/cat looking animal that can talk - sort of - like a parrot but with purpose ...trust me they are wonderful!)
I'm sure you guys will remind me of some that will set my heart on fire with yearning to re-read when I go explore your lists!
