Harry Potter series This Man series Ready Player One
Lord of the Rings Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern original trilogy, and Gwen Bristow’s Celia Garth.
The Dragonrider books are some of my favorite. I haven’t read them for years. Maybe I should.
I just reread them this past spring (along with 4 or 5 others that centered around Jaxom, Lessa or F’lar. It had been at least 25 years since I’d read them last.
@Robin It’s been that long for me too. I’m going to read them again. Thanks for reminding me of some old favorites. 🙂

I actually have 4: Harry Potter series, Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, The Lord of the Rings series, and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I find Gaiman to be great rereads. I listened to Good Omens, and I can’t wait to have time to go back to it. And HGTTG is probably my all time favorite book (I have 42 tattoed on my thumbs) and the audio is great comfort listen.

Red Rising!!! Oh gosh, I am not a sci-fi person at all…I won Red Rising giveaway, I must have thought it was something else when I entered. As soon as I finished, I headed to library and got the 2nd and was first in line for 3rd. Awesome series!? Oh and I’ve bought them to read again!!!?

Really cool thread! ?? I don’t re-read fiction, but I’ll often go back to read the first few pages of a book I just finished! Or re-read the last few pages, just to capture them again ❤️
Life’s to short and there are too many books to take time to re-read. IMHO ??
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Winter’s Tale (by Mark Helprin). Little, Big. (Also, many by Alice Hoffman!)
Love Alice Hoffman!
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Any book by Georges Simenon, Elizabeth Eyre, Jane Austen, or Robert van Gulik.
Anything by Dick Francis, for reasons I can’t fathom☺
I haven’t read Dick Francis in years now, but I’ve read all his early books (the first 25 or 30) more than once and I keep thinking I should see if they still hold their charm for me. He’s very good at characterization and pacing, or at least his wife was; since she died his books have not been neatly as good.
@RuthLoewen, it’s funny that they are so good to reread, even though predicting the ending is usually very easy. I think he has passed away now. The latest books are written by his son.
Harry Potter, The Host and Famous Five
Famous Five! ❤️
The Stand by Stephen King Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon Beach Music by Pat Conroy
Howl’s Moving Castle, Inkheart, Harry Potter. And those are all technically kids books. I read them when I was younger. Guess they stuck with me.
Another good kids book, I recently read was The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Will definitely read it again.
I don’t really like Neil Gaiman’s writing style.
I haven’t read any of his adult books yet. Just Coraline and The Graveyard Book. I enjoyed both.. I recently got a couple of others to try.
@Cathy Nope. Coraline creeped me the hell out when I tried reading it in 6th grade. (At least I think it was 6th grade.) Something about the whole button for eyes thing. Couldn’t do it.
It is rather dark…but, I like creepy, scary…thriller types.
I like dark comedy. If its like a dark story with a sarcastic narrator, I’m down.
East od Eden(Steinbeck), Lights we cant see (Doerr), Tuesdays with Morrie (Albom)
Tuesday’s with Morrie…love Mitch Albom’s books! And that movie is pretty good too!?
