Top Ten Tuesday: Series to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

The idea for today is top ten books to reread, but I've cheated a bit and gone for series as I LOVE marathon-reading series!

Kat Stephenson by Stephanie Burgis - My all-time favourite heroine! I treated myself to the trilogy from the Book People a few months ago so I had a full set of paperbacks as previously I only owned two as e-books. Definitely planning on blitzing them ASAP.

Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter - Loved this series so much and I'm tempted to try and reread before Ally's new book, All Fall Down, hits shelves early next year. The central quartet in this one are one of my favourite ever groups of friends.

Pea's Book by Susie Day - This quartet is gorgeous, a set of warm, funny and touching novels. I've read them all at least twice, but would love to binge-read (and because they're quite short could probably do in a few days!)

Drina by Jean Estoril - My all-time favourite series. I reread them over a few months last year, finishing in Red Lion Square where the Dominick School is located for most of the series, and it's exquisite even after reading individual books so many times previously.

GONE by Michael Grant - This is the kind of series that is normally too brutal for me, but the characters arcs for so many characters is SO amazing that I want to return to it.

Sadler's Wells by Lorna Hill - 14 books in the series but the last 4 are ridiculously hard to track down. I've read the first 10 so many times but would love to get my hands on those final books and marathon read it.

Wereworld by Curtis Jobling - Loved this epic fantasy series, with great character development and some amazing relationships over the course of the six books.

The Magician Trilogy by Jenny Nimmo - I reread Nimmo's The Snow Spider a few years ago and thought it was breathtaking; a stunning look at grief wrapped up in a magical story. I want to finish rereading the series when I get a chance.

Harry Potter by JK Rowling - I've been meaning to reread the series ever since I finished Deathly Hallows on release day but they're so long! I love the way Rowling tied up so much stuff in book 7 and I want to go back and see if I can spot things in earlier books that play a bigger part towards the end. I may need to splash out on one of the gorgeous new boxed sets...

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey - I haven't got to the last in the series yet but thought the first was good, the second great, and the third AMAZING. 


  1. I've only read Harry Potter out of the books mentioned and it's a series just too good to read just the once.... I think I've read the complete series more than a few times now plus every time a new book came out I'd re-read the other books first!

  2. Totally with you on the Harry Potter - I'm the same, I haven't reread them since the last book came out but so want to go back and reread them all in one go. Nice list!
