Teaser & Top Ten Tuesday (February 25)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, here are the rules:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on the page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you choose to share doesn't give to much away, you don't want to ruin it for others!)
* Share the title & author, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

"I've never begged a girl for anything in my life, but nothing about this memorial is going to be easy. With Harper there…I don't know. Maybe it won't be so bad." (pg. 154)

Top Ten Tuesdays is a great weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where you get to share fun book related topic top ten lists. It is also another great meme for finding great new books, authors and blogs! 

This week is a Tuesday Rewind, where you get to choose from any previous topic, I chose…

Top Ten Books You'd Like to Reread 
(if only I had the time, and a smaller TBR pile!)

So, in no particular order, here is my list of books I'd like to find the time to reread:

The entire series because it was so amazing and is still to this day one of my all time favorite reads.

Again I'd have to say the entire Lioness Rampant series, because these were also amazing and still remain some of my favorite books even though I first read them as a child.

I first read this book in high school, and fell in love with Mr. Darcy and Lizzie Bennet. I wanted my own Mr. Darcy, it also got me started on my love of Brit Lit and all things Austen.

After reading all the Austen I could, I had this book recommended to my by our school librarian. I decided to read it for a class, but I ended up loving it and writing a paper on it because I loved discussing it so much.

I read these as a kid, and I remember loving the series, but I honestly don't recall a lot of it anymore. I'd love to reread and appreciate them all over again.

I loved this series (the Heather Wells series) by Ms. Cabot, it helped to cement my love of all things by Meg Cabot. The story is just so funny and fun, I would love to reread and experience the characters all over again.

Well 1. I love Jennifer Crusie books, they are the best romantic comedies and 2. the new cover has a dachshund on it - a doxie?! Yes, I need to reread it (and yes I bought the new addition just so I could have the dachshund cover!)

Loved these! The characters, the drama, the mystery and "secrets". I had so much fun reading these, and they are the reason Ms. Peterfreund is on my auto buy list.

These were so fun! I love heist movies, books and I had never read a YA heist book: it was so good and it was a series! Ally Carter did a fabulous job (as always) and these are such a great fun, pick me up read, I really want to reread them all.

Loved this book, it was so fun and it made me laugh out loud at several parts. I have actually reread this one before, but I'd love to read it again for the light-hearted good time it provides.

I love Gone With the Wind. Love it. I loved the movie, and in high school I thought "Hmm..the book is pretty much always better than the movie, I should read that." - and guess what? Yep, the book was 10x better than the movie (which I love) and had so many great new details and pieces that did not make the movie version.

This Contemporary YA Romance is one of my absolute favorites, I loved the male lead. This book is so sweet, and it's been long enough that I really don't remember what happened.

Okay, so that was actually 12. So I guess I made a top 12 list, I thought this was going to be easy and I'd only be able to come up with 10 at most. Then I came up with about 20 and finally forced it down to 12. So, next time I'll aim to hit just ten. :)

 Tale of Two Doxies


  1. I always wanted to read Anna and the French Kiss.

    1. It's very good, I would definitely recommend it (with obvious bias) :)

  2. Yay Harry! Would love to reread that series!

    Great teaser too!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Yes, gotta love Harry - although as I saw on another blog today, I would LOVE to see a Harry Potter mini-series too. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I loved Something Like Normal! I wish it would've been longer!
    And I second an Anna and the French Kiss reread any day!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! <3

    1. It's really good so far, but I'm only about halfway through. And I love Anna - can't wait for Isla to come out. Thanks for visiting :)

  4. Great list! Haven't read Pride and Prejudice yet too although I am dying to read it.
    Here's my TTT on kickass heroines: Rimsha@Ramblings of a Bookworm

    1. It's one of my all time faves and it just never gets old…definitely worth the read! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Great list, I would love to re-read The Golden Compass as well. I have only read it in swedish so would be fun to re-read it in english ^^

    Here is my TTT:

  6. nice list, rereading is like catching up with an old friend. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  7. Oh that teaser is intense. Looks like an emotional one.

    I so loved Anna and the French Kiss! Would definitely want to re-read that one.

    My TT

  8. I'm a chronic re-reader, often getting caught up in reading something again rather than reading something new. But I love the Alanna series. I love all of her books. Thank you for stopping by earlier!


  9. Gone With The Wind, Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice all made it on my list with a completely different topic (best book to movie adaptations)! There's a number of items on your list I'd love to re-read. I used to re-read all the time and I find I don't really do that anymore in the last 10 years or so and am not sure why. Maybe life is busier and I feel like I need to spend limited reading time on new books? Unsure but I need to start setting aside some time each year and devote it to re-reading some old favorites.

  10. I agree with so many of your books! I really want to reread Harry Potter and the Heist Society series, seeing as they're both great. And I've only just started reading the Song of the Lioness, but they seem like the type of books I'll be rereading at some point.
    Thanks for stopping by. :)

  11. Ooh, sounds very interesting! Thanks for stopping by my post earlier, and yes the doxies in my picture for the post are mine!
