Lisa (lisamarie1987) | 22 comments I was just thinking that I am going to read "Breakfast at Tiffanys" again as I saw it mentioned in a discussion and remembered that I loved it when I read it a few years ago. I'm just wondering, if there was only one book that you could re-read what would it be?

Tone (tonjel) | 18 comments This was a hard question.
If I should chose only one book I think it would be The Perks of being a wallflower (or maybe Harry potter 7)


message 11: by Terri (new)

Terri (terrilovescrows) | 18 comments I agree with The Stand


message 12: by LaVerne (new)

LaVerne Clark (laverneclark) Seriously - only one?!? That is so mean ;)
Okay...if I HAD to choose, it would be this one:

Outlander (Outlander, #1) by Diana Gabaldon

Marissa Milia | 8 comments Mine is Amazing Grace by Megan Shull. She's a local author for me, and I met her and she signed my book....right after she sold it to me...haha :) But its really good and always satisfies me at the end.

message 15: by Bread (new)

Bread (etchmaymay) | 30 comments one book!? Probably the Summoning by Kelley Armstrong because its so unique and each time you read it you stumble upon a new detail!


message 16: by Arwen (new)

Arwen prob either between the lines or obsidian


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Maybe "Kane and Abel" by Jefferey Archer. Or even "The Thing Between U And Me...When Life Goes Filmy" by Sagar

Moon (eccb17) | 1 comments well Harry Potter for sure. It was the book that made me fall in love with reading.


message 20: by Brittany (new)

Brittany Perry | 229 comments One? I think I'd rather cut off my fingers than if I could only re-read one book. If I had to choose one I guess it would be Fallen by Lauren Kate

I would second that as well


message 22: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lisamarie1987) | 22 comments ha yeah i guess it was a pretty hard question :-)

Michael (lovechild) | 280 comments Oh this is a great question.. It seem hard for me to detached the book that becomes perfect and ingrained in to your soul from what is going on in your world at that time.

I would have to say
Loverboys Stories by Ana Castillo

I was coming from one of the greatest vacation I ever been on, dealing with a broke heart. I was stuck in Airport as a storm stopped all travel, alone still distilling everything that had happened. I needed to get back to my university having missed the first week of classes. This book at that time was perfect and spoke to me. And yeah it would be okay to experience that once more. =)

message 26: by Reaghan (new)

Reaghan | 52 comments Wow...I just cannot choose 1...maybe Harry Potter in a foreign language so I could do two things at once? If I only had one book to read, I might as well learn a new language too...

message 28: by Liz (new)

Liz Barnsley (lizzy11268) | 8 comments Ooh thats a hard one. Probably either something by Stephen King or "The Gone Away World" by Nick Harkaway.

Yas - I'd completely forgotten

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
It was a fantastic book! And the detail was incredible too. Thanks for the reminder :)

Tejashree | 6 comments Its hard to choose one book...

maybe Pride & Prejudice.


message 33: by Ashima (new)

Ashima (ashimachoudhary1) | 20 comments many fall in the list but I'd say Jane eyre..


message 34: by Laura (new)

Laura | 62 comments Harry Potter, for sure. I've never had more fun reading than with those books! If I had to choose just one of the HP books, that would be tough. I'd probably go with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) by J.K. Rowling for the resolution.

YES. Beyond awesome book. It was the first novel, incredibly dark though it was, that made me laugh out loud.

You know Becky i just didnt get anything I read the Book and I was completely clueless and bewildered as to what I have read I know the problem with me not wit..."


I read it when I was in high school on my own. It took me half the book to realize that the story jumped around in time. I reread it after college and still found it crazy, dark, and hilarious. If you try it again, I would suggest reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand first. She did a wonderful job at explaining the lives and mentality of servicemen in WWII, through the telling of Louis Zamperini's life story. I also loved the end of Catch-22. It gave me the feeling of hope.

message 50: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 37 comments I'm going to cheat a little. The books I'd have to read again would be Sharon Penman's Welsh Trilogy. They are:

Here be Dragons

Falls the Shadow

The Reckoning

The last book left me in tears and I don't cry easily. So if you haven't read this trilogy; you're really missing something great.

Also 'The Phantom' by Susan Kay-A brilliant book.
