Heather, from A High and Hidden Place, did a Friday Fourteen on her blog today, where she posted fourteen books that she would like to reread. Then, she asked other people to answer and so, I decided to post my own list. There are books I have read this year and last that I would really like to reread, but I decided to go back a bit further in terms of a list.
1. A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle: I usually reread this book every year, but haven't gotten to it yet this year. It was my first fantasy novel that I remember, so I like to go back to my roots.
2. I Know this Much is True - Wally Lamb: I really enjoyed this book, although it is not a book that is for everyone. His other book, She's Come Undone, is good too, but I liked this one the best.
3. The Republic of Nothing - Lesley Choyce: This book is very comical. I read it for the first time in high school and have always wanted to read it again. I think before I reread it, I might purchase another book by him that I haven't read.
4. Daughter of Fortune - Isabel Allende: She is one of my favourite authors, and I quite enjoyed this book.
5. The Mists of Avalon - Marion Zimmer Bradley: If I reread this, I would like to read all of the books in the series. I love Bradley, the world really suffered when she died and was unable to give us new books. Although, books keep coming out by her, they are written by other women that aided her over the years.
6. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger: It's been a while since I read this book, and I even tried to reread it earlier this year, but didn't make it very far. It is hard to reread when there are so many new books calling my name.
7. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn - Betty Smith: My mother recommended this book to me the first time I read it, and I really enjoyed it. I really need to reread it. I had a very rundown copy and bought a nicer one the other day.
8-14. I am aware I can't count. shhh! But, I want to reread The Anne of Green Gables series. All of them. I loved them when I was little, but other than book one, have never reread them. So, even if I didn't reread book 1, I still would like to read the other seven again. I still remember the summer I read them. I need to do that again.
What about everyone else? Any special book you want to reread?
