TTT: Memory Wipe Re-Read

New prompts for Top Ten Tuesday have been put on hiatus, but that’s not going to stop us, right? If anything, it has encouraged me, because it means I can delve into the archive and pick any old theme that takes my fancy!

This week I’ve chosen books I wish I could wipe from my memory and re-read as if it were the first time. These are books that I had a particular kind of love for. A love that had me clutching the book to my chest when I finished it. That kind of love comes from being completely immersed in a book and swept away with the world, the characters, and the story.

These books stayed with me long after I finished them, and I’d love to be able to experience all that again for the first time.

The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Carter Beats the Devil by Glen David Gold

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

King of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

The Passage by Justin Cronin

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Any and all books by Christopher Brookmyre

What books do you wish you could re-read for the first time? What impromptu or old school Top Ten Tuesday themes are you doing while new ones are off the cards? What Top Ten Tuesday theme should I do next week? Should I ask any more questions?

    I’ve heard SO many good things about The Book Thief – it is definitely a book that I want to read in the future. I haven’t read Howl’s Moving Castle, but I have seen the movie. Would you recommend the book?
    Have you done the TTT from last week? (Best books of 2017 so far) 🙂
    I am taking a break from TTT this week since I have some tags to catch up on!
    Cheers,
    Sophie

      I would 100% recommend Howl’s Moving Castle. I saw the film first and didn’t even know it was a book, but i loved the book so much. It was one of those books i had to hug to my chest when i’d finished reading it because i wasn’t ready to let it go.

        I will definitely keep that in mind then! I watched the movie quite a while ago so I don’t remember much about it. I’m sure when I read the book, it will be like reading it with fresh eyes 🙂
