In an Ideal World I’d reread all of Tamora Pierce’s series until I get tired of them (which will probably be never). In an Ideal World I’d probably reread all the books and manga and series I love and really like and even the books that I started and found out were series and want to continue but haven’t done so in years. Unfortunately, unless somebody can send me a Time Turner for every-day use or can find a way to lessen my workload, this isn’t happening.
But there are occasions where I will want to reread books even though I have so many that I haven’t already read, because hey, nostalgia hits and I really need my fix of that particular world or story. So here are books/series I intend to go back to at some point in the near future:
Top Ten Books I Want to Reread
Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce – Yeah. Inevitable. I’ve already reread The Song of the Lioness Quartet so many times that I figure I can give my poor paperback copies a rest and go reread this series instead. I will always want my Tortallan fix, so this one’s as good as reading about Alanna!
Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede – It’s been so darn long since I’ve read the Enchanted Forest Chronicles that I really do feel I need to reread this, if only to remember why I loved the second book so much and why I really can’t remember the first.
Fire by Kristin Cashore – After reading Bitterblue, I really wanted to reread about Lady Fire and the Dells. The world there was fabulous, and I miss reading about Fire’s romantic interest.
Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs – Let’s be honest here. I’ve probably reread a majority of this book already, and I’ve mostly reread the other Mercy Thompson books over and over. But a full reread is totally in the works, as this one’s my particular favorite of the series.
Soulless by Gail Carriger – I finally got myself a copy! And I’ve been meaning to delve back into Alexia’s timeline as opposed to Sophronia’s Finishing School timeline. It might also be good reason since I intend to continue reading the rest of the Parasol Protectorate series.
The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks – I also purchased this book along with its two sequels, and I remember loving the book. I will want to reread it before finishing the series.
Sabriel by Garth Nix – I’ve reread Sabriel twice, I think. Once just because, and a second time because I wanted to read Lirael and Abhorsen. Now that Clariel‘s out, I’m going to want to reread the entire Old Kingdom series before I start Clariel.
Phoenix Rising by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris – There are more books after this, and I might do a skim-read of the first one just to remember the events that happened. It was also a really fun book, so I would never mind picking this up again.
Dragon’s Bait by Vivian Vande Velde – I was a kid when I read this, and I do feel like I need to read this again, because I loved it back then.
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster – I was also a kid when I read this, and I remember enjoying it. The sad thing is I really don’t know why, because I can’t remember the story. So this one’s clearly for the need to recap.

How you feel about Tamora Price’s series is probably how I feel about re-reading the entirety of manga. I’ve taken so many break-hiatuses (because let’s be honest: 5 seconds in anime time each week was so slow to get through–at least for me) that I’ve reread a few of the big name manga’s multiple times from the beginning.
…and I expect to do it again (le sigh) with Naruto [hopefully] coming to an end.
joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts
Hah, I think that’s why I never started Naruto. I was already invested in One Piece and people were telling me to go try Fairy Tail and Naruto and I was going: “MORE UNFINISHED SERIES?! !@)(!)@(#!”
I haven’t even tried to think about rereading manga…though I do that sometimes, too…
Yeah. I’m SO stoked when they end so I can finally re-read it once more and until the end and just be done with it all!

I just finished Alanna for the first (like 3 hours ago) and it was so fantastic, I’d kind of like to immediately re-read it. I understand why it’s on your list:0)!
Yes! Admittedly, I read the Tortallan books out of order, but that didn’t matter! I loved all of them XD
Totally glad you enjoyed them!
Nice list! Most of these books I have yet to read once. Except Fire and Sabriel which I read just this year.
