Top Ten Books I Want to Reread (TTT #3)

"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly book blogger meme hosted by

This week's list topic is...


Alright! This week's topic is really fun! There's definitely a good number of books I want to reread. I'm sure this a list we can all expand on long after number ten...

1. DEATH NOTE by Tsugumi Ohba (a Japanese manga series)   
This one I actually am currently rereading already! This is one of my favorite mangas, and I'll be gushing over it on my blog as I have planned to review all twelve volumes of it. This story is seriously A-mazing!

2. THE GREYFRIAR (VAMPIRE EMPIRE, #1) by Clay and Susan Griffith 
I only just read this book a couple of months ago and I already want to read it again. I just love the characters and how interesting and larger-than-life they are. I also completely adore the Greyfriar, as well as his romance with Adele, the main character. I read books mostly for the characters, and these guys have stolen my heart.

3. THE IRON KING (IRON FEY, #1) by Julie Kagawa
These next three spots on my queue are going to be dedicated to Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, which are so wonderful and magical, I need to keep reading them. I love the characters here, mostly Ash and Puck, and Glitch, too, although he's not in the first book. Again, great characters make the story for me, usually. 

4. THE IRON DAUGHTER (IRON FEY, #2) by Julie Kagawa

5. THE IRON QUEEN (IRON FEY, #3) by Julie Kagawa
This one is particularly epic! Great story and awesome ending...

When do I not want to reread this book? I pretty much always do, as it is one of my favorites. I adore Mr. Darcy (what woman doesn't?) and Mr. Bingley. They are just the most epic fictional men ever, the kind that seem so realistic. Real men could be just like that, right? They totally could, if only they would...

7. FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley
Another huge classic favorite of mine. The detailed description of the monster Victor creates, when he first sees him animated, is some of the best you'll ever read anywhere. It spine-tingling even to this day. I love to hate Victor Frankenstein, so I just can't stop myself from loving this title and needing to reread it.

by Sunao Yoshida
This is a Japanese light novel series. Light novels are not manga, as many people believe. They are actual novels with occasional illustrations here-and-there, but the story doesn't depend on them. This series is my favorite because the characters are simply amazing. You want to hang out with them. The origin story behind the vampires is the most unique I've ever come across, and the main character, Abel Nightroad, is a special type of vampire that feeds off of normal vampire blood. How frickin' cool is that? Love this...

9. "A CHRISTMAS CAROL" by Charles Dickens
Of course, everybody loves this tale, but how many read it? It's something wonderful to read at Christmas time, and not just watch your favorite movie adaptation. Dickens is the best writer to have ever lived, probably. I plan on rereading this story at Christmas time this year.

10. "THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW" by Washington Irving
I haven't read this for quite a long time, so I've been itching to get back to it. I'm excited for the nearing Halloween time of the year, and this is one of the best paranormal stories out there. 

What's on your top ten books you want to reread list?


  1. Great list! I've watched the anime version of Death Note and Trinity Blood several times and I imagine reading them to be just as good. Frankenstein was also a really awesome book, and I thought about adding it to my list.

  2. I have been wanting to read Frankenstein for a very long time. Glad to know it is worth a reread.

  3. I absolutely LOVE the classics on your list! I haven't read the others though.
