Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Liked but Will Never Re-Read

Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT is: Books We Liked but Will Never Re-Read.

I relate to the phrase, "never say never" with re-reads. I am a rare re-reader.. I wouldn't say it's completely out of the picture. But I do feel like with these books that I loved, I don't really see myself re-reading at this point in time. However, never say never! :)

The mysteries that I loved but since I know the story already, I don't really see myself re-reading..

Gone Girl  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

The dystopian worlds that I was completely sucked into but I don't see myself re-visiting again..

Divergent (Divergent, #1)  The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)  The Selection (The Selection, #1)

The contemporaries that really stood out to me and I thoroughly enjoyed, but I feel like re-reading them wouldn't be the same as the first time..

The Fault in Our Stars  Alex, Approximately  I'll Meet You There

The survival story and the paranormal story that didn't really fit into the other categories..
(one I read years ago when I was into paranormal and I'm afraid I won't love it as much if I re-read it. The other is a survival story that I loved and I'm not sure would be the same upon re-reading.)

Nightshade (Nightshade #1; Nightshade World #4)  The Raft


  1. I agree that sometimes knowing what happens ruins a re-reading experience. I don't think I could re-read Gone Girl!

  2. I feel like I could say the same about Nightshade! I do remember really enjoying it though but I feel like I'd be bogged down by it today. Still a most enjoyable read! The same can be said about mysteries too! Though if I picked one that I read eons ago, I might possibly forget the whodunit...but then I might surprise myself and remember too! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Good point -- it's not very often I'd see myself re-reading a mystery either knowing what's coming either.


  4. I think your post is the third or fourth today that's mentioned Gone Girl. Wow, that was a popular choice!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. I think it's hard to re-read mysteries in general because once you know the ending, even if you forget the details, you usually remember what's happening which is part of the fun reading them!

  6. The Fault In Our Stars was on my list too but for a completely different reason!
    My TTT:

  7. I think I could maybe see myself re-reading (if I had the time) something like "The Selection." It was such an easy, "relaxing" read for me the first time through, so I could see myself re-reading it if I ever feel like reading something "easy." But before I'd ever do that, first I have to finish the series with "The One" and the spin off books! :)

  8. I would love to reread the Divergent series if it wasn't for the last book. It really let the team down.

  9. I probably could have listed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo too. Gone Girl made my list as well for the same reason. Another one of yours I didn't list, but I do agree with you about is The Fault in Our Stars. I did consider it, but ultimately decided I wasn't quite ready to say no for sure. (Although, like you, I believe in the ol' never say never idea as well!) I hope you have a great week!
