Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

It's Tuesday and that means Top Ten day over at The Broke and the Bookish!  Head over there and check out all the links.  You can also see my list of Top Ten Kids/Teen Books I Want to Reread over at Great Books for Kids and Teens.

Today's list is an easy one for me.  I have a whole bookcase filled with books I want to save and maybe reread one day!  To keep the clutter somewhat controlled, I try to really consider whether I will reread a book before I decide to keep it.  So, here are my Top Ten Books I Want to Reread:
  1. Replay by Ken Grimwood - even though I have read it three times, I know I will reread it!
  2. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - one of my favorite books and it's complexity begs for a reread.
  3. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - some day when I need inspiration.
  4. 12,000 Miles in the Nick of Time by Mark Jacobson - a memoir about traveling around the world with a family - maybe someday I can reread it while planning my own trip!
  5. One Mississippi by Mark Childress - a favorite novel, even though I know how it ends now, I would still reread it to look for clues (and for the laughs!)
  6. On Writing by Stephen King - fabulous writing advice - maybe I should reread this one soon!
  7. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver - another all-time favorite.
  8. She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb - I was blown away by this novel.
  9. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - read it decades ago - I'd like to see if I still love it as much as I did then.
  10. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - also loved this one but am embarrassed to admit I sometimes confuse the details of this and the previous one - definitely need to reread.
 Many of these books just blew me away the first time I read them, and it would be fun to see if I still feel the same way the second time through.

How about you?  Which books would you most like to reread?
