Books That I Read Often Throughout The Years

Nothing beats the joy of reading a new book and it surpasses all your expectations. Well, there is one thing that beats that; Rereading that book over and over again. This article will be about novels that I reread throughout the years.  

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

Let’s start off the list with one of my all-time favoirite novel Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I may have seen the move first and then read the novel afterwards. Brad Pitt did an amazing job and I revisit the movie often. But the novel goes into much more detail and the scenes stand out much better. 

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

While Fight Club might be my all-time favorite novel, it is not my most read novel. That honor goes to The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I keep finding myself going back to this novel because. It is like a compass that helps me find my sense of direction and refocus. 

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

The oldest novel that I revisit has to be the Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. Some novels stay with you through the rest of your life and that has been true of this novel for me. I love the characters, the plot, and the poetry involved. But I love the ending leading back to the beginning of the novel which is the icing on the cake.

Honorable Mention

Those three novels are the ones I will reread the most often. Some honorable mentions include The Hobbit by J.R R. Tolkien, The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Ardin and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

The list of novels that I reread will grow this year. And when I do reread them, expect a review if one hasn’t been written already! What novels do you find yourself revisiting over the years?

    Wow. Those are awesome books. Even I would love to read them again and again. I have read Harry Potter many times. It still gives me immense joy. The books by Enid Blyton still fascinate me and I love Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. My list of favorite books and authors continues to grow. Great post. 👌👌👌

    The bear and the nightingale is one of my favorite books and one I too re-read. Others would be The unbearable lightness of being by Milan Kundera and The ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman

    Hey Ahaqir! Nice post. If you enjoyed reading The Alchemist so many times then do give The pilgrimage a read as well. It’s by the same author.

    I, too, have reread The Outsiders several times. It’s a little gem of a book. The one I go back to over and over again, though, is Huckleberry Finn. I read it first as a very young child — it was an abridged version designed for younger readers — and it profoundly changed me forever. Young Huck’s slow realization that his own observations of the world around him run counter to the narrow-minded, racist society he was born into is, in my opinion, one of the most brilliant pieces of writing ever created.

    As for books to reread, Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis and Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankel top my list. Anything by Lewis is inspiring.
