It’s Tuesday! That means that it’s Top Ten Tuesday time!
What is Top Ten Tuesday, you may ask?
“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.”
This weeks topic is books I wish I could read again for the first time. I knew I had to do this one. Because I have so many. So, so many.
1. The Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn
Has there ever been a time when I haven’t raved about this book? I first read it my freshman year of high school and I loved it. It’s been a regular re-read of mine for years.
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Oh to read Harry Potter for the first time…again. I was eighteen when this book first came out and didn’t start reading them until the third book had been released. But they are wonderful, aren’t they? Also, because reasons, Trans lives matter.
3. Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead
I loved this start to the Pendragon cycle, and I’ve read it a few times since that first time, but nothing beat that first time of seeing that quiet finishing village.
4. The Last Dragon Lord by Joanne Bertin
This book came out 22 years ago, and I would love to read the story of humans that can turn into Dragons for the first time. It’s seems the book is out of print, but you can still pick it up on Kindle!
5. Naked in Death by J.D. Robb
I have every book in this soon to be 54 book series. But that first book was something special.
6. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
Ah to be young again. Or maybe not be 12 years old when I read this book for the first time. Cause yes, I read this book the first year it came out.
7. The Black Gryphon by Mercedes Lackey
This was my first Mercedes Lackey book, and here we are, 26 years later, and I’m still reading them. But it would be amazing to pick this up as if I’ve never read it before.
8. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
This book was so very good. It’s in my top ten books of all time, for sure. But I’ll never be able to read it for the first time again. So sad.
9. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
While I didn’t love the way the book series ended (or the TV Show ending, lets be honest) I loved the way it started. And to read that all over for the first time? Yes please.
10. Black Sun Rising by C.S. Friedman
This story had one of the most intriguing openings I have ever read in a book. It was creepy for a fantasy book, and I’d love to read that for the first time.
There is my list. My very short list. I could do this list at least one more time.
And yes, I know most of these books are old. I’m 40!
What books that you loved would you like to pick up for the first time if you could?
