I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Reread Heaven

Paul introduced the idea for a blog post of your favourite books to reread and books you totally need to reread.  Here's his original post - Reread Heaven.  I'm just taking on his prompt and making my own list.


My favourites?  Well, the four series that immediately came to mind as favourites for rereading as I was reading Paul's list were:


Isobelle Carmody - The Obernewtyn Chronicles


The Farseekers


The Keeping Place

The Stone Key

The Sending

(and I'm sure the final, as yet unpublished volume in the series will be added to this list in time)


Jasper Fforde - The Thursday Next Series

The Eyre Affair

Lost in a Good Book

The Well of Lost Plots

Something Rotten

First Among Sequels

One of Our Thursdays is Missing

The Woman who Died a Lot

(and I'm sure the final, as yet unpublished volume in the series will be added to this list in time)


Patricia Cornwell - The Kay Scarpetta Series


Body of Evidence

All that Remains

Cruel and Unusual

The Body Farm

From Potter's Field

Cause of Death

Unnatural Exposure

Point of Origin

Scarpetta's Winter Table (actually a cookbook, but the recipes are taken from the previous novels and credited to the character rather than the author or an actual chef)

Black Notice

The Last Precinct

Blow Fly



Book of the Dead


The Scarpetta Factor

Port Mortuary

Red Mist

The Bone Bed


Flesh and Blood


(I haven't read the last seven of them, and only read the four before that once, but that's mostly because it's such a long series it takes a long time to reread them all)


J.R.R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings Quadrilogy

The Hobbit (I consider The Hobbit to be part of the series and always read that before I can read the other three books)

The Fellowship of the Ring

The Two Towers

The Return of the King


Then after further thinking I remembered these other series.


J.K. Rowling - The Harry Potter Series

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Enid Blyton - Malory Towers

First Term at Malory Towers

Second Form at Malory Towers

Third Year at Malory Towers

Upper Fourth at Malory Towers

In the Fifth at Malory Towers

Last Term at Malory Towers


and St Clare's

The Twins at St Clare's

The O'Sullivan Twins

Summer Term at St Clare's

Second Form at St Clare's

Claudine at St Clare's

Fifth Formers of St Clare's (I haven't read either of these series in over a decade, but I must have read them ten times over when I was a child and teenager, I'm going to do another reread when I get the time)


Karen Marie Moning - Highlander Series

Beyond the Highland Mist

To Tame a Highland Warrior

The Highlander's Touch

Kiss of the Highlander

The Dark Highlander

The Immortal Highlander

Spell of the Highlander


I rarely reread single books, books that aren't part of a series and the few that I have got on an internal list of books to be reread are books that I gave only cursory reviews of when I was younger and feel a need to write a decent review for.
