I think we all have those few books in our lives that when we first read them they had such an impact or pull on us that we just wanted to flip the book over and start re-reading — either to re-immerse ourselves in the world from which we just reluctantly emerged or to more fully process the lessons and situations that we, along with the characters, just experienced.
I find that this list, for me, is a rather odd grouping. Some of the titles are more universal, and I think, "yes, well, of course. good." While others are, I don't know, just fun to read.
On my 'feeling-the-need-to-re-read' list:
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
- Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
- The Once and Future King by T.H. White
- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
- Fluke by Christopher Moore.
- Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. (and also The Eyre Affair.) .
- People of Paper by Salvador Plascencia.
How about you? What books have you reread (or are feeling pulled to re-read)?
