Top Ten Books I Wish I Could Read Again For The First Time
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling. This book started me on a phenomenal adventure into a magical world and an imagination beyond belief. To not know anything about this series and to read it over would be a wish come true. Amnesia anyone?
2. Twilight by Stephanie Meyers. I want to go back when this book (and author) were not a heated debate. I want to get lost in the story of a plain girl and her vampire crush.
3. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. This series started out so good and I couldn't help but devour the books. I also want to be reintroduced to Eric and all his yumminess...this is purely for selfish reasons.
4. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. Much like the board game Clue this novel is a fun mystery that will leave you guessing until the last page.
5. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Amazing story that puts a unique and captivating twist on a classic.
6. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. I love these four ladies like they were my sisters. To start the journey over from scratch would be amazing getting to re-experience everything for the first time again.
7. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. This is one of my all time favorites. I remember setting this book down when I was finished just staring at it in awe. I recovered moments later and called my bestie to gush about how amazing it was. I'd love to recapture that experience.
8. Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I loved the world that Kristin Cashore created. Her characters and her kingdoms are like none I've ever encountered and I won't likely forget.
9. The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. This series was a childhood favorite of mine. To tell you the truth I could probably pick them up now and it would be like reading them for the first time since it's been so long. When I see this series it just makes me feel warm and happy inside like the smell of home.
10. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. This is my favorite classic and I want to experience that insane (both good and bad) love between Katherine and Heathcliff for the first time all over again.
Yea! I made it to ten this week! Which books would you like to read again like it was the first time?
