Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
There are just some books that leave you with such deep, intense feeling when you finish it for the first time. We've all experienced this at one time or another. The bad thing is, there's really no way we can go back and experience that feeling again, even with multiple rereadings. We already know what happens, if there are plot twists, a surprise ending, who the main characters ends up with , who dies, etc. Here are some books that leave me (Kelly) with these feelings of longing.
Top Ten Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time
- Harry Potter: okay, this one is obvious. I adore rereading this series (I do it once a year), but I will never experience that amazing feeling of reading about Harry for the first time.
- Sloppy Firsts: If you've read this series, you know exactly what I'm talking about. End of story.
- Innocent Traitor: This is an amazing historical fiction book that will leave you absolutely haunted when you finish it initially. Rereading it when you know what happens at the end just isn't the same.
- Falling Angels: almost an exact ditto to number four ^
- The Birth of Venus: I loved this book the first time around; I literally gushed about it everywhere I could. I picked it up recently and it was just...okay. I wish I could feel as passionately about it as I did the first time.
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn: This is my number one favorite book of all time. There's nothing like reading a book for the first time that becomes your favorite immediately.
- The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings: A similar feeling to Harry Potter, though not as intense. Brilliant.
- The Hunger Games: So I may be cheating slightly on this one, since I just finished it, um...yesterday. I can't stop thinking about it and want to go back to the beginning.
So this TTT managed to sound much more depressing than I'd ever intended. :) Anyways, be sure to link up below and share your top ten picks!
