Books I reread or want to reread


I don’t do as much re-reading of fiction as I used to, mainly because there are so many books out there I  want a chance to read  and already feel as it I don’t have enough time.:)  When I was young, I re-read Harriet the Spy, The Westing Game, and all of the Encyclopedia Brown books over and over again. I also read  the A Wrinkle in Time trilogy a few times. 

When I’m feeling sick or low, I re-read the Discworld books. They are always a good pick me up. I remember re-reading the Sevenwaters Trilogy (Juliet Marillier) and Kushiel’s Dart over again because I really like the scenery, the characters, the lush worlds that were created. I do read  Thomas Ligotti’s short stories, Ted Chiang’s short stories and Joan Didion’s classic Slouching Towards Bethlehem. There is also a Junichi Saga who has two great non-fiction books I’ve re-read several times Memoirs of Silk and Straw and Confessions of a Yakuza. If you wonder about life in Japan, particularly in the era when it changed rapidly, these are both great.

  1. I loved “A Wrinkle in Time”, but struggled with the series (especially when Meg was grown). I think I re-read books I love for comfort, or when I’ve come off a book I don’t like much and want a guaranteed “good” story.

  2. The first Kushiel’s trilogy is still some of my favorite fantasy ever! She has such an amazing way with words and all the UST between Phaedre and Jocelyn! AAAAH. LOL

    Um, anyway… great list. 😀

  3. I’d completely forgotten about Encyclopedia Brown! I loved those as a kid. I’ll have to hunt those down and give them a reread through adult eyes. Thanks for sharing!
