Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 I want to reread in 2022

Yes, you read that right! This post is a Top 5 Tuesday post — I’m participating in the meme originally created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads.

My usually Tuesday lists are linked back to the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, but I just wasn’t feeling this week’s prompt, so I thought I’d do something different.

Books to re-read!! This topic is definitely in my sweet spot, since I’m a big fan of re-reading my favorite books. I’ll usually let at least a few years go by, although sometimes, when the next book in a series is on the horizon, I’ll do a quick re-read (or audiobook listen) to get a refresher on all the details.

Here are five I plan to re-read in 2022:

  • The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien: I’m actually planning to start a LOTR re-read this year, and I’m leaning toward starting with the audiobook of The Hobbit (narrated by Andy Serkis) — but I also have this illustrated edition on my shelf that I may choose to spend time with instead.
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling: I’m looking forward to enjoying the gorgeous MinaLima edition of HP#2.
  • When Sorrows Come by Seanan McGuire: The newest October Daye book (#16, Be the Serpent) comes out in the fall, so before then, I’ll be doing an audio re-read of #15.
  • Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon: I read the 9th book in the Outlander series as soon as it was released this past November, but starting next week, my book group will be doing a group read, sharing and discussing two chapters per week.
  • Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller: This is another one for a book group discussion, and I absolutely do not mind the idea of reading it again!

Do you plan to re-read any books in 2022?

As always, if you have a TTT or T5T post this week, please share your link!

  1. I’m not a rereader, I just feel like there are too many books out there I want to read, but I have a few I’d love to reread sometime. The Secret History is one😁

  2. I will say that if you get to the Hobbit and do the audiobook with Andy Serkis that it was amazing! I just finished it this January :D. (The Hobbit and LOTR are an annual reread for me so I am always looking for new methods).

  3. Hi Lisa β€” welcome (back?!) to Top 5 Tuesday!! Umm, what a list!! I really need to read The Song of Achilles, and the Outlander series. And it’s been so long since I’ve read The Hobbit… maybe I can squeeze that in my list for this year too?! Hope you had fun this week πŸ’•

  4. I plan on trying to reread Song of Achilles myself. It didn’t actually work out for me the first time but I think it was because I didn’t like the audiobook narrator (plan on trying in print this next time) and on account of my mood. I’m hoping to end up loving it as much as everyone does!

    • Funny, I listened to the audiobook the first time (and loved it), and was thinking maybe I should go with print this time! Mood does matter a lot, so your experience may (hopefully) be really different if you give it another chance — that’s definitely happened to me with other books.
