Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme for the list lovers among book bloggers, created and hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is rereads, which is something I do a lot! So here’s the top ten I’d like to reread right now, they may change by next week though. See this week’s roundup here.
The book I want to reread most right now is this:
1. People of the Book: it’s part of my travel with books reading project for two destinations, and husband has just finished it, so I can’t wait to read it again. I recall liking it a lot, despite the huge letdown at the way it ends.
Then there are some rereads that also fit in one way or another in my project:
2. The Hand of Fatima by Ildefonso Falcones: I hope to visit Andalusia soon, so that I can reread this one and make sense of the different towns it is set in.
3. The Ringmaster’s Daughter and/or The Orange Girl by Jostein Gaarder: I may even venture to his Sophie’s World, but that’s not a reread.
There are also some books that I’d like to reread, but in a different version:
4. Blindness by José Saramago: I’ve read it in translation and would like to try the original Portuguese
5. Neverwhere and/or American Gods: I’d like to see how Gaiman’s writing was rendered in Italian
Finally, there are some books that I go back to again and again, even just for a few pages, because it’s like meeting an old friend. My comfort reads, which should be at the top of this list, actually:
6. The Lord of the Rings: loveliest epic adventure ever.
7. Anansi Boys: Gaiman’s most fun book. ’nuff said.
8. The Time Traveler’s Wife: great narrative technique, great story, makes me cry every time.
9. Goodbye Little Women by Marcela Serrano: you really should get this one translated in English, sometimes!
10. Really? Already 10? There are so many more titles in my comfort reading list…
