I have read so many books several times that it would be hard to choose the list. Jane Austin, Pride and Prejudice. Anything by Georgette Heyer whose novels are old friends have been read many times. The Lord of the Rings, Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Rider series. I am currently rereading a college text book called Beyond Feelings which is an instruction manual for critical thinking. It is helpful to keep my thinking on track. There are many more.
DM Thomas - what an incredible (and underrated) author he is. I've read The White Hotel, his most famous novel (which should have won the Booker instead of Midnight's Children) several times, but I remember in the 80s reading The Flute Player, and I literally just could not get it out of my mind, to the extent that I had to read it again a few weeks later. For that reason it remains my all time favourite novel - I re-read it a couple of years ago and it's still amazing.
Host by Stephanie Meyer you have to give it a chance first 2 chapters are slow Jane Austins Pride and Prejudice Christine Feehans Dark Celebration Karen Monings Fever series Needful Things by Stephen King Janet Evanovichs books are quick pick me up reads anytime I need to smile I grab one of her Plum books they're funny, you want to know these people!!and it never takes more than a day to read.
I'm trying to find the time to re-read Lord of the Rings for the 26th time, but I think my favourite for a re-read would be The Dark Is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper. Or the first 3 Dune books, legend. Ghost32 - the entire Wheel of Time? That's a long re-read! Fantastic stories though
I read books more than once all the time - I'm currently re-reading Shadow of the Moon by MM Kaye for about the 6th time. Stephen King is an author I read again and again - I bought The Stand to read on the train from Adelaide to Perth and I didn't finish it during the journey
I've read Lord of the Rings three times, and like Amanda I probably will read the Harry Potter books again at some point. I've also read Len Deighton's Game, Set and Match trilogy a couple of times. Sometimes a book is just "right" for you at a certain time in your life, but not at other times. For example, I first read Douglas Coupland's Generation X when I was in my twenties and absolutely loved it. Recently I read it again and while I still thought it was a good book, it just didn't light my fire in anything like the same way it did twenty years ago.
I adore Don Quixote by Cervantes, James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, and like most females, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. I have read them all numerous times.
By the way, I thought the movie of James and the Giant Peach was pathetic. It left out the best part of the book. The cloudmen who make our weather were amazing in the book.
Of Mice and Men - Steinbeck The Sound and the Fury - Faulkner The Stand - Stephen King The Dark Tower (the whole series)- King On The Road - Jack Kerouac Junkie - William S. Burroughs The Great Gatsby - Fitzgerald
I'm sure there's more, but I think I've read the above books more than twice.
I'd always said that I can only read a book once. That was until I read Harald and Maude by Colin Higgins. I think I've read it now about ten times. I always have a new book to read, but if I've forgotten to buy a new one, I just read that one -- and it's never boring ...
When I was a kid I was fascinated by R.L.Stine's 'Goosebumps' series. I especially drew attention to 'Say cheese and die' and 'Ghost beach'. They are classic novels that i read quite a few times. I might pick one up...
Have you ever read a book that had you looking over your shoulder?A long time ago I read a book by Peter Straub, "Ghost Story" and it was so terrifyingly eerie, I had to sit with my back to a wall as I was so...
