10 books that I could re-read forever

There have been a lot of books that I’ve loved, and I would re-read most of them. But books that I could re-read forever and not get bored? That’s a different story.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jana @ The Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is Books I Could Re-read Forever. In short, these are my absolute favourite books.

Let’s get to it!

[1] Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

I’ve been sitting here thinking whether I’d prefer Lady Midnight or Lord of Shadows because both of them are absolutely brilliant. I ended up on LoS because it made me cry and broke me into pieces unlike LM. Isn’t that what all us book lovers wants?

Lord of Shadows is book 2 of The Dark Artifices trilogy (LM is book 1) and IT. BROKE. ME. Definitely one of my absolute favs.

[2] Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

This is one of my all-time favourite books.

I read it for the first time in middle school when I was borrowing random books from the library. I discovered this gem and I’m so glad my early teen self didn’t care about synopsis and things.

Overall, it’s got a simple story but there are SO MANY things in this book! It takes place over a long period of time and it’s got adventure, friendship, romance, evil stepsisters and more! I totally recommend this to everyone—and do read it to kids! This is the perfect book for kids.

[3] Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid

This is one of my recent reads and I fell absolutely in LOVE with it. I actually reread it about a week after the first read!

It’s got a wonderful and unique MC with the BEST EVER love interest, amazing girl-girl friendships, some “trouble” and overall is a swoon-worthy read. Definitely recommended for romance lovers!

[4] A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Although I didn’t like the first book and was disappointed by the third, the second book of the ACOTAR trilogy will always hold a place in my heart. I’ve reread it quite a few times already and I’m down to reread it any day. Rhysand is bae and Feyrhys is OTP.

[5] The Selection by Kiera Cass

Although I don’t like the series much overall, especially the fourth and fifth books, I will ALWAYS love the first book. It captured me the first time I read it and no matter how may times I reread, it still gives me the same feels.

The only thing I don’t like about it is the love triangle, but I can overlook that because Maxerica is perfect.

[6] Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I’ve read this book only twice but even once is enough for me to put it on this list. Despite me knowing the ending, the second read was as swoony as the first and I felt ALL the feels! I can NOT wait to watch the movie.

Read my review.

[7] The Other Daughter by Lisa Gardner

I picked up this book the same way I picked up Ella Enchanted. I randomly went to the mystery section in the library, skimmed titles until this spoke to me and took it home. I was way less picky back then—jumping from children’s books to romance and paranormal to mystery.

This book grabbed me right from the start and just did NOT let me go until the end. I couldn’t help but give it all my attention because the writing style simply hooked me in.

have reread it a few times since then but my interest in it has never faded. Even now I want to reread it.

Here’s my review.

[8] The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Again, I picked this up randomly from the library. However, I actually read the synopsis for this one and the mention of a “Cemetery of Forgotten Books” hooked me in.

I’ve reread this book several times. And every single time I feel exhilaration in the right parts. It might be a little slow for some people but I found it intriguing. I absolutely loved the romance and mystery aspect which is connected to a breath-taking book. I can totally reread it forever.

[9] The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

When my cousin found out that I was actually TOTALLY into books, he gifted me the boxed set of this trilogy about 5 years back. Considering he wasn’t a reader, I didn’t have much faith in his choice. He himself told me that he wasn’t sure of my tastes and simply brought something.

THG was my first dystopian book and it made me fall in love with the genre. I breathed in the books within days and I’ve reread THG several times since. I didn’t like the second and third books as much, but the first book will always be my dystopian love.

[10] Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern

Alternate title: Love, Rosie.*

I found this book in the romance section of the library and I picked it up because I sensed that it was less graphic than others that I saw. I was still in middle school, you see. All I wanted was a simple love story without sexual themes.

I fell in love with this book because of the format. The story is narrated in correspondences—letters, text messages, emails etc. and considering that I had never read such a book before, I loved it. I’ve reread it a few times as well and the ending always makes me tear up. Every single time.

*the title was changed after the movie released. I’m pretty sure I’ve ranted about how much I hate title changes because of movies quite a few times on this blog so I won’t anymore. But yeah, I’m still enraged about it.


Only now am I releasing that most of my favourites are from when I was in school and that I found quite a few of them because I wasn’t picky about my reads. Ever since I joined the book community online, I’ve been looking for reviews and going for new releases instead of the good old random selection.

Now I really feel like going back to the library (which hopefully has got a much wider selection that it had before) and finding some more amazing books.

    Hi! Not a book blogger but I used to be many moons ago. My fave book for re-reading is definitely where the red fern grows. It’s the only book that has brought me to evident tears and it’s probably where my intense connection with dogs comes from.

    Great read! I’m going to check out some of your recommendations and I also and super bothered by books that are re named after the movie releases. Or when movies leave out main plot points from the books that basically make the movie make no sense!
