Hi and welcome to the reading world!
Today’s post is another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s theme is books we wish we could read again for the first time! Some of these are books I read ages ago and want to reread to see how my opinion of them has changed with time, some are so I could re-experience the plot twist and so on. Let me know your picks in the comments!
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
This second book in the Kiss Quotient series is my favorite of the 2 installments I’ve read so far. I loved the character development and the slow burn romance.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
This is definitely a staple in modern fantasy and one I wish I could re-experience (and maybe will reread sometime soon!)
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
I honestly read this one years ago and haven’t reread it since! I want to reread it now but I also want to see how my thoughts and reactions to it have changed over the years.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is one where I think reading it in school made the symbolism and meanings more highly analyzed and I’m curious to see how the reading experience and analysis could have changed over the years.
The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty
A favorite series finale, the Daevabad trilogy is an all time favorite and this installment was an incredible ending.
Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn
I especially loved the audiobook of this and would love to re-experience the journey of these characters!
Passing by Nella Larsen
This was a somewhat recent read but one I still think back on and am amazed by how much was packed into such a concise story length!
Kiki’s Delivery Service by Eiko Kadono
One of my most recent completed reads, I would love to reread this heartwarming tale.
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
I’m still in the process of finishing this trilogy alongside some b2weirdos but this story is absolutely incredible and memorable.
Good Talk by Mira Jacob
My first experience with memoir in graphic novel format, but definitely not my last!
There is my list for this week’s TTT! What are your picks?
Thanks for stopping by!

Kiki’s Delivery Service seems like a fun read! I am going to take a look.
I’ve never read The Count of Monte Crisco. Someday I should!

I love the Mistborn series! A friend recently told me she was reading the first book and I was like, “Oh, wouldn’t that be fun to experience that one again for the first time?” Great pick.
The Fifth Season was so good.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I am seeing a lot of classics on lists and I agree. My list this week: https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2021/08/top-ten-tuesday-reread-for-first-time.html
I read The Great Gatsby in school and strongly disliked it. My teacher said I probably didn’t understand it, and I’m sure she was right. However, because of that, I’ve always thought of it as pretty terrible…you’ve made me curious now about what I’d think if I read it today. I might have to consider doing that.
Great list! I read The Count of Monte Cristo several years ago and loved it. If it was given to me in school, I would have disliked it out of spite. So many classics are forced upon us at school when most of us are not in the right place to truly understand them.
When you get the chance, I hope you stop over at my blog and take a read: https://readbakecreate.com/10-books-i-would-love-to-see-as-a-movie/
