The List of Books to Re-Read

For a short while now, I have planned to keep all of the books I intend to reread for next year, and not do any of that until the end of this year. This action also, however, means that I need to know what I wish to go through again. So, I thought that it would be nice of me to provide a preliminary list (any list I make is preliminary because I’ll tend to add things at a seemingly random reason) for indeed the reason for me to reread these books/stories is that they are well worth it, in more than one way.

So, here we go:

  • ‘The Lord of the Rings’, J.R.R. Tolkien
  • ‘Quo Vadis’, H. Sienkiewicz
  • ‘The Silmarillion’, J.R.R. Tolkien
  • ‘The Narrow Corner’, W.S. Maugham
  • ‘I, Claudius’, R. Graves
  • ‘Claudius the God’, R. Graves
  • ‘The Children of Hùrin’, J.R.R. Tolkien
  • ‘The Deluge’, H. Sienkiewicz
  • ‘With Fire and Sword’, H. Sienkiewicz
  • ‘Siddharta’, H. Hesse
  • ‘Die Morgenlandfahrt’, H. Hesse
  • ‘Tai-pan’, J. Clavell
  • ‘The Last Shogun’, Ryotaro S.
  • ‘The Secrets of the Self’, M. Iqbal
  • ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, A.C. Clarke
  • ‘Foundation’, I. Asimov
  • ‘The Sirens of Titan’, K. Vonnegut
  • ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’, G.R.R. Martin
  • ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’, E. Hemingway
  • ‘The Master of Go’, Yasunara K.
  • ‘The Last Battle’, C.S. Lewis

Now, this is at best a half-finished list, and I’ll probably need to edit it given this current selection would be at the very least a good number of pages. But that’s the direction — reading Sienkiewicz, Tolkien, and Martin, and adding into the fray a bit of classical Hesse, Maugham, and others.

We’ll see how it works out, and I’ll plan to add a more revised list closer to the time when I’ll actually start on this ‘project’.

  1. Great list. I have tried to read Siddharta again, and I found it harder to read. It is also interesting how now I read the author s having so much anxiety and grief in his life. Still a nice book thanks to the image towards the end.
