Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

I love to participate in The Broke and the Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday. It's a blog round up with a new subject every week.

This week's list is the Top Ten Books I Want To Reread (or if you don't reread, would in an ideal world).  I don't have a lot of time to reread books, when there are so many new books to read!  But these are the ones I would take to a desert island.......

1.  Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.  This is one that I do reread every few years.  It's just one of the best books ever, ever, ever.

2.  Gone, Baby, Gone by Dennis Lehane.  Gripping, moving. It will make you consider morality
and when can doing something wrong end up actually mean you are doing something right?  No happy endings here.

3.  The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher.  My favorite WWII book.  I have gotten lost in this over and over.

4.  No Flying in the House by Betty Brock.  Haha!  This is the first book I remember reading over
and over, I think I was about 8 years old.  I still want to be a fairy with a magic, talking dog.

5.  Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding.  A winter classic for me.  One of the few times that they movie was as good as the book.

6.  To Have and To Hold by Jane Green.  I love her books and would reread all of them given unlimited time.  Thankfully, she's got a new one coming out soon.

7.  Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster.  This was one of the first funny non-fiction books I ever
read.  It cracked me up.  I bought it off a table at Borders.  Does Borders still exist?

8 & 9.   Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Giffin.  I would happily reread, but I don't think you can read Something Borrowed without immediately starting Something Blue.  I think I ended up liking Something Blue better.

10.  Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  Always a classic, always a book to lose yourself in.  I want to be a Beth, but I'm afraid I'm a Jo.
