Top Ten Tuesday-Books I Could Re-Read Forever

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/top-ten-tuesday/

This week is about favourite re-reads. Sadly for you followers of the Cult of Chuckles, it means you are about to see the same books and series I'm always raving about.

1) Stephen King-IT
My favourite ever stand-alone book. I now also have the audio cd and I've worn out about three paperback copies. I've yet to watch the re-make film though.

2) George RR Martin-A Song of Ice and Fire
The rich worldbuilding and characters that feel real make this a wonderful series. I think HBO have done a brilliant job of taking it to the TV viewers. I have various behind the scenes and history of Westeros books too.

3) JK Rowling-Harry Potter
I loved this series the first time I read it. Great worldbuilding, characters and issues you can relate to...I have various editions including the Stephen Fry audio cds and the new illustrated books which I love.

4) Michael Stephen Fuchs-Arisen
Probably the best zombie series I've ever written. The action just keeps on coming, I love the characters and next month I'll be reading the final three books in the series! Book one is usually found free on Amazon if you want to try it.

5) Nicholas Sansbury Smith-Extinction Cycle
Another excellent zombie type series that keeps you gripped. The 'zombies' are ever evolving so the humans are always having to find new ways to defeat them. I'm about to start the final book in the series!

6) ZA Recht-Morningstar Trilogy
This was the first of these new action packed breakneck speed zombie books that I'm now addicted to! I love the trilogy and was sad that the author died before book three was finished. The trilogy was completed by another author, and I see it is continuing beyond that with a new author. I'm not sure if I'll try that or not as I liked the way the trilogy ended..

7) Kelley Armstrong-Women of the Otherworld
This was a great urban fantasy series and I loved all the books that featured the wolf pack. Those wolf spin off novellas were great. Strong characters and good plots.

8) Suzanne Collins-The Hunger Games
I haven't actually read this series for a second time but I'm itching to do so as I loved the trilogy! Maybe next year?

9) Kevin Hearne-Iron Druid Chronicles
I love the action, the humour and the plot which weaves various mythologies into modern day America. And who doesn't love Oberon with his love of sausage and French poodles?

10) Patricia Briggs-Mercy Thompson 
Another favourite urban fantasy series that I need to catch up on this year as I'm a couple of books behind. I've already re-read the early books a few times.

  1. Hey, these are your faves so shout them out loud! I didn't even think of the Harry Potter books but I do plan a re-read, especially since I have the first three illustrated editions and want to read those. Great list!

    1. Sometimes these TTT topics are just repetitive and I feel I'm talking about the same stuff over and over!

    1. I never go to the cinema-it's just too expensive! My dad bought It for me as a gift because he knows how much I love the book. I hope to watch it this month!
