Read-a-thon: Mini-Challenge by The Bluestocking Society

This mini-challenge is brought to us by The Bluestocking Society.

The goal is to list books that we love to read over and over again. I can't post any of my own photos, as so many of my books are still in boxes. However here is what I can come up with when I'm half-asleep...
  • Swan Song, by Robert McCammon: This is my all-time favorite. I can read it over and over again. I'm not sure what it is that I love about it, but I do love post-apocalyptic stories with a battle between good and evil, with good winning out in the end.
  • The Stand, by Stephen King: Another favorite post-apocalyptic-style story. A classic. This has been a favorite since I first read it when I was twelve.
  • The Wolf and the Dove or Shanna, by Kathleen Woodiwiss. Everyone needs a little romance every now and then.
  • Flowers in the Attic, by V.C. Andrews. Not currently on my bookshelf, but I've read it a number of times since I was about twelve. I was always fascinated with the idea of these kids living out their lives in a single room and an attic.

So those are a few of my favorites that I always keep on my bookshelf. I'd read them over and over.

Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen Woodiwiss is a favorite reread.

Boy's Life is my favorite McCammon book- I don't re-read very often but I would like to read that one again. I loved Swan Song too!

That's awesome that you have a couple of go-to books. I haven't reread anything in a long time, because my tbr stack has gotten too large. Good luck with the rest of the challenges!

A couple of other people have listed The Stand and Flowers in the Attic. I enjoyed The Stand, but I haven't read Flowers in the Attic. I really should, eh? Thanks for participating in my mini-challenge.
