5 After 5, Books Worth Rereading

I don't often want to read a book a second time, but there are a few titles that keep me coming back to their pages, over and over!

How about you? What books would you read again?

It's time for another round of 5 After 5!  In case you missed it, last week's list was Ways to Celebrate Easter and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here - then catch up on all the old editions here.

Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.

And this series is a link party, so be sure to scroll down and join in all the fun with us this week!

List five books worth rereading

I could completely cheat with this list and say things like the Bible or devotional books - or even non-fiction books, because so often they're full of helpful information - but here are a few fiction titles that have been good enough to make me want to visit them again:

1. The Outlander series

The Outlander Series

It would take a big commitment to read the thousands of pages Diana Gabaldon's written so far (and who knows how many more are still to come?), but I definitely want to go back and reread this series again.

I keep holding off, because I want to read the entire series once it's complete, but it will probably take me so long to get through them all again, I could start now and still not be finished for years.

2. Harry Potter

Harry Potter Series

I have almost picked these books up again since the series concluded, but since I actually started reading them as an adult when my skating students convinced me I was missing out on something fabulous, I binge-read about half of them the first time around, so I was able to enjoy that sequence before.

I'm pretty sure I'll just wait to reread these until I start reading them to Gv, and we still have a few years before she's ready for them.

3. The Day After Tomorrow

I've reread this one several times and I could easily see reading it again. It's fast-paced and even though I know the ending, it gets me, every time.

4. Pillars of the Earth

I've read this one several times, as well. It's a big one, but I'm still not sure if I have a decent grasp of the characters that span the generations.

5. This Present Darkness/Piercing the Darkness

I've read these both a few times, as well, but I could definitely read them again. I grab this set whenever I'm in a philosophical mood.

Bonus Titles: 

In His Steps

I used to hand this book out like candy - it's the book that the whole WWJD movement was based off of, but this classic is so much more than that!

Zion series by Bodie and Brock Thoene

I was amazed by how much I hadn't learned in school about this time in history - and am so happy that I read this series before I began traveling overseas. I've been itching to read it again, however, now that I've been to so many of the places these events took place, so I can organize things better in my mind.

For next week:

List 5 ways to spruce up the outside of your house

Usually this is the season when the weather entices everyone outdoors. Even though most people are getting their porches and decks ready for use, the temperatures are just about getting to the point here when we start to stay inside.

Maybe this year, we'll brave the heat and make use of the square feet that aren't air-conditioned...

I can't wait to see your ideas!

And now, here's this week's link party!  Another fabulous blogger has teamed up with me to create a list of five each week and we hope that you'll join us, too!

That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!  

Every Saturday, just stop by one of our blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!

The rules are simple:  just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow both of the hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.

Your Hosts:

Lisa, at Syncopated MamaFacebook // Twitter // Pinterest // Google+ // Bloglovin'
Samantha, at Motivated DaysTwitter // Pinterest // Google+ 

What's your list?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.

  1. I don't often reread books but I could definitely read the Song of Ice and Fire series again. I want to reread them before the new book comes out. Xx

  2. I have the outlander series on my to read list. I've read all the HP books and then read them all again with my kids. I'm sure it won't be the last time I'll read them! Thanks for linking up to #HomeMattersParty
