5 Books I Could Read Over and Over Again

5 Books I Could Read Over and Over Again

Reading, one of my favourite past times! I used to be a little book worm when I was a little girl. I had all the Jacqueline Wilson books and they were my absolute favourite books to read ( hands up if you were also obsessed with Jacqueline Wilson ) Today I thought I would share with you five books that I could read again and again. This does not necessarily mean they are my favourites ( though most of them are). Sit back and enjoy the read...

#1 LORD OF THE FILES- WILLIAM GOLDING

I had to read this book when I was doing my GCSE literature in year 10. Unlike Of mice and men which was the absolute death of me and I literally had no idea what was going on half the time. Lord of flies is a well written book but what probably made me like it so much was the context behind it. Being for school, we analysed it hard and even looked in to the religious and symbolism elements which I particularity enjoyed. It made revising for English literature a lot easier, though I still only got a C in the end. The only thing stopping me reading this particular copy of Lord of the flies is it that is filed with an excessive amount of doodles    I mean very intellectual and well thought through notes, no I was probably right the first time.

#2 THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER-  STEPHEN CHBOSKY

This book is such a quick read, mainly due to the easy to follow diary format and layout. I'm sure you have all heard of this book and most likely watched the film. What makes this book so re-readable for me is the fact that I can really relate to Charlie the main character. Constantly feeling like you are always on the edge of a room. I definitely still prefer the book to the film though.

#3 HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHERS STONE- J.K ROWLING

I don't know if I have ever told you guys, but I have quite an addictive personality, so once I start something I want to know everything about that particular subject. I started reading this particular book on holiday and within around 3 weeks,  I have watched all the 8 films ( previously not seen before), read half of the books already and booked a trip to the studio of Harry Potter. Lets just say, this book is amazing. Okay maybe not the most well written or emotive as some of the latter Harry Potter books ( I love the goblet of fire)  but being the shortest, its the most accessible and definitely one that will always have a place in my heart.  

#4 THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER- JACQUELINE WILSON

I don't necessarily think this was the first Jacqueline Wilson book  I ever read but it could of been. I don't tend to re read this book much now but as a child, I always did. Tracy beaker is a character that I grew up with. I watched every episode of Tracy beaker and knew all the words to them all. I don't care how many times they try bringing it back, the original series's will always be the best, with Elaine the pain and Justine little-wood!

#5 THE WOMAN IN BLACK- SUSAN HILL

This is quite a weird choice I think, but the reason I chose this book was because I loved the film and I watched the actual on stage play version, so I thought it would be a good idea to read the book and I actually really loved it! Its such a short read but I feel like the characters are very well portrayed and it for once is a lot like the film, so that is always a bonus.

Well, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this quick run down of my favourite books I could read over and over again. Do let me know yours, in the comments below x

  4. I've read all of these except Lord of The Flies but I think it's on my English Lit reading list for A Level next year. The Harry Potter series is my favourite, I'm a huge Harry Potter geek! I also used to absolutely love Jacqueline Wilson, I still have my collection taking up two and a half shelves of my bookcase as I can't bear to get rid of them all!

  5. Love this list! I could read Harry Potter & The Perks of Being a Wallflower forever. I've never read The Woman In Black though - I've watched the film and it terrified me, but in a good way. Maybe I could brave it for a Halloween read!

  10. I really need to read 'Perks of being a Wallflower' but I've never got around to it!! I attempted to read 'The Woman In Black' for my English Literature GCSE, but I only got to the first chapter, and I really couldn't get into it! Xx

    1. You should definitely pick up The perks of being a wallflower, its so good and its really cheap now on Amazon. I watched the DVD again of Woman in Black and it was a different version so I didn't like it as much but it has inspired me to read the book again because I haven't in a while, its a shame you couldn't get in to it though :)

  11. I totally agree with all of these, except maybe woman in black because I am not a horror fan! Haha, loved this post idea too:)
