TTT #136 – Books I Quite Liked But Am Less Inclined to Reread

Some books can really suck you all the way in when you read them and all you can think about is returning to that world. You wouldn’t mind rereading them over and over and over again. Yet there are also books that show you an amazing world and ideas and characters that you love. When you are done with the book or series, that is it though. No desperate want to return to the world or the story.

For this week’s prompt for Top Ten Tuesday ( hosted over on That Artsy Reader Girl) I am sharing books of that last category. Books that I liked but that I am less inclined to reread. This doesn’t mean that it might never happen, but at this point in time I just can’t see myself picking up to do that.



    1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
    2. Furyborn by Claire Legrand
    3. Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
    4. Paaz by Myrthe van der Meer
    5. The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
    6. De Verborgen Universiteit by Natalie Koch
    7. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
    8. Uprooted by Naomi Novik

  1. The Night Circus is one I still haven’t read, and The Lord of the Rings… I love that series, and the world as well, but I have to be in the right frame of mind to read those again.

  2. I used to re read but since Goodreads I don’t have time anymore. Too many shiny toys πŸ˜‰ Yet I adored Furyborn.

    1. It does help that they are cut in three, but yeah I understand. It is also one of the reasons I am unlikely to reread them again. Still they are worth it for that first time read.

  3. I can’t see myself re-reading The Lord of the Rings Trilogy either even though I really enjoyed it the first time around. Maybe if my son wants to buddy read it with me but definitely not on my own.

  4. Oooh what a good list! I never even thought of LoTR, but yeah … I probably won’t re-read those, either. I enjoyed them the first time, but not enough to do it again. Same with Sherlock Holmes (although, I didn’t completely finish the series, so I’ll finish it and that’s it). I’ll be reading Furyborn soon, though.
