Top 10 Books I wish I could read again for the first time

Top 10 books I wish I could read again for the first time

Today's a freebie, meaning I get to pick the topic!  I thought it would be easy, but I ended up starting three or four lists and failing.  Apparently I need guidance.  Finally I picked a topic that I managed to finish.

There's nothing quite like finding a book that immediately sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.  Some books stay with you for a long time after the last page.  You think about them, revisit certain sections, and wish you could have that same excitement again.  Not that the book is ruined, but it's never the same the second or third time you pick it up for a quick read.  Here are a few books that I wish I could revisit again for the first time:

1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Magic, romance, intrigue, and the coolest circus ever.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
It was a bittersweet reading, but one of anticipation and emotion.

 3. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
While Wade was searching for the easter egg, I was searching for great pop culture references.
4. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
A story that equal parts creeped me out and kept me on the edge of my seat.

5. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I know.  But it was fun!  
6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
You don't often find a book that leaves you crying inconsolably
and laughing hysterically at the same time.

7. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
So romantic.  So heartbreaking. So perfect.

8. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
To step through the wardrobe with Lucy for the first time again would be magical. 

9. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
No surprise mysteries aren't the same the second time around,
but this sure would be a fun one to work through again.

10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
It sort of feels like I'm reading it for the first time whenever
someone new discovers it, but still not the same.
