Well hello, friends! It’s a chilly day here in Texas. And by chilly, I mean it’s in the 50s (almost 60s) and that’s on December! Always exciting when the weather dips. Means it’s cool enough for comfy sweaters! And who doesn’t love comfy sweaters?!?!?!
It’s also Tuesday! This means it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and originally created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week it’s a freebie, so I decided to go and do a past topic, which is Books I Could Re-Read Forever. But you probably guessed that from the title, didn’t you?
Warning, you will have seen most of these books before, but a couple of them you won’t have seen. Ooh…surprises!
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
This feel-good book just sits on my shelf begging to be read. It’s perfect for days when your mental health has taken a hit. Or maybe you just want to curl up with a cozy read under a blanket sipping on a cup of hot tea. It’s probably not going to be a yearly re-read, but I will pick it up quite often.
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
The first of Jenny Lawson’s memoirs. I remember listening to the audiobook on a long drive and just laughing, constantly. The author also reads her own audiobooks, so her personality really shines through in the narration. It’s a regular road trip companion for me.
In Death series by J.D. Robb
The In Death series seems to be a set of stories I just can’t stay away from. I buy every new book that comes out. Re-reading takes forever, but it’s fun and worth doing. I get warm fuzzies, mild spice, and suspenseful moments from these books. I love them!
Dragon Prince Series by Melanie Rawn
I think I’ve talked about this book or this series enough that none of you should be surprised to find it on this list. I’ve loved Rohan and Sioned and their journey since I was a teenager. I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
The Cat Who series by Lillian Jackson Braun
The Cat Who series was started in the 1960s and the whole series is a very dated, but fun read. The author was writing right up until her death, but the thirtieth book remains unpublished. This cozy mystery series follows Quill and his two Siamese cats KoKo and YumYum as they work to solve the newest case. And yes, my love for this series is why I wanted a Siamese cat, got one, and then named her KoKo. Yes, the female in the books is called YumYum, but it just didn’t fit my girl. Anyways, yes, I love these books, dated though they are.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
What can I say about this book that I haven’t already mentioned before? I love it. I love everything about it. The story is about a girl who makes a deal with an old god to escape a marriage she doesn’t want, but as a result, she is instantly forgotten about by everyone she encounters. It’s so good! I just read this last year and am itching to read it again.
The Heralds of Valdemar by Mercedes Lackey
I know, I know, get a book series already. But Valdemar is such a fun read. Am I able to read each one in one sitting? Absolutely. I love that for me. Here’s hoping she is able to continue writing for years to come!
The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
This dense, well-written, forbidden love story between a vampire and a witch had me captivated from word one. My favorite one is A Shadow of Night. I love every moment of my reading experience with this book series. And the 3rd season of the TV show comes out on Sundance Now on January 8th, in case you were wondering.
The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn
Another one I’ve mentioned a lot. I’ve only read it once, but I can see myself reading it over and over again. It’s a great book about the “real” story of Santa Claus and is absolutely adorable. It’s a great story to read over the holiday season.
Lord Of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
You may not know this, but I am a nerd. I love LOTR. Why yes, I have read the Silmarillion. Do I recall any of it? No, that book is way too dense to retain all of it. Also, did I just use all my audible credits to pick up the LOTR trilogy as read by Andy Serkis? Absolutely.
I love all these books and now all I want to do is read them all again. Thanks, Top Ten Tuesday.
