Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
I grew up with Harry Potter and it has been a large part of my life for so many years. Ever since the series ended, I've found myself going back to reread it every year or two. It brings back fond memories from my childhood and teenage years, but I also find something new in the series each time I read it.
This is the book that made me fall in love with reading again as an adult. After the first page, I didn't want to put it down and even though it's around 1,000 pages, each reread feels completely worth the time commitment to me. Every time I complete this book I want to start all over again at the beginning.
The Secret Life of Bees
I first read this book in high school and it was one of the few books that I actually completed (rather than pretended to have read). When I reread it again as an adult in the summer of 2016, I found myself falling in love with it all over again and connecting with it for different reasons. As a teenager, I connected with the young main character, but as an adult I found myself much more interested in the lives of the adults in the story and how they got to be where they were. It made for an extremely interesting reread and I look forward to rereading this book many more times throughout my life.
The Great Gatsby
Another book from high school that I actually read and loved. I've reread The Great Gatsby many times as well as listened to the audiobook twice through, and it always keeps me hanging on each and every perfect word.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Who doesn't love Atticus, Scout, Jem, Dill and Boo Radley? I have a feeling I will reread this story many more times in my life.
It took many years of trying to understand Shakespeare for me to truly get it. It wasn't until a college English course that I finally had an "aha" moment and realized how wonderful Shakepeare is. Hamlet is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays that I can enjoy over and over, be it in text form, film, or on a stage.
I didn't read Jane Eyre until I was an adult but I've read it once every year or two since, and sometimes I just pick it up, open the book to a random page, and start reading.
