A better question might be: what books don't I want to reread?? I've read most of my books more than once, but here are the top ten that I've only read once and would love to reread:
1. The Silent Wife - A. S. A. Harrison. It's awesome. It's short, but incredibly well-written and fun to read. It's a terrible shame that Ms. Harrison passed away before The Silent Wife was published, so we won't be seeing more from her.
2. Joyland - Stephen King. A great, old-fashioned whodunit by the master of horror himself.
3. Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn. I want to reread this before I see the movie, but my mom still has it and hasn't finished it even though I lent it to her probably a year ago...Mooooommmm...
4. Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier. This is a lovely, haunting novel and I actually can't believe I haven't reread it already.
5. The Casual Vacancy - J. K. Rowling. As some of you may remember, a few of us here at TBTB did a group read of The Casual Vacancy, but most of us didn't finish. We did have a great discussion, though, and knowing everything I know about it now, I'd like to read it again with a fresh mind.
6. Room - Emma Donoghue. I remember loving the first half of the book, but I wasn't crazy about the second half. I'd like to read it again and see how I feel about it a few years later.
7. Desperation and The Regulators - Stephen King. I'm counting these as one because they're companion novels. I wish I could go back and read The Regulators first, for the first time, because the first time I read them I read Desperation first.
8. The Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis. Again, counting this as one because it's a quick series to get through as an adult. I had never read it as a kid and finally read it a few years ago when I was 22, and I LOVED it. My younger brother and sister are 5 and 6 now, so they're almost ready to get into them and I'm so excited for them!
9. The Gunslinger - Stephen King. This is one that I don't really want to read again, but feel like I should because I didn't really like it the first time. But apparently the Dark Tower series is King's magnum opus, so I feel like I should try it again.
10. Brave New World - Aldous Huxley. Another one I felt kind of meh about last time. I'd like to give it another try to see if it'll grab me the same way it's grabbed others.
