Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read.

    • I have never played mahjong, but I remember my friend’s dad playing it all the time. I didn’t read it in high school either. I remember it being really good. I went on to read other books by her.

  1. I rarely reread books too. There’s just so many other books I want to get to that I just don’t have the time to reread books when there are more to read.

  2. I rarely re-read books as well… there are too many new books to be read haha. I haven’t read The Book Thief at all, though I heard great things about it overall … I really should read it someday ahah 🙂 x

  3. Agree with The Book Thief. Although I’m a huge advocate for re-reading that is one book I can’t bring myself to re-read. I can’t go through all those feels again.

    • Thank you!
      I think that’s a great time to re-read. I normally Google the book instead of re-reading. LOL. I’m lazy like that.

  4. Great picks! I don’t think I would reread Sharp Objects or The Book Thief either… Although like you I don’t tend to reread a lot of books in the first place.

    • I liked the second half of Gone Girl, but hated the first half. I don’t think I could go through that again.

  5. Ah yes I relate about Sharp Objects. And I’ve always planned to reread Book Thief one day, but I never feel emotionally prepared to pick it up again (that book wrecked me the first time round) Amazing list!

  6. I haven’t read the book thief but I did watch the movie. I don’t see myself reading it since I know what happens. Such a deep, emotional read 🙁 I haven’t read any of these others.
