Top Ten Rereads for author Angela Brown
Hey Ellie! *waves*
Thanks so much for having me here today. I’d like to share a list of books that I would reread without hesitation. Not just because of the writing. Although writing is important with most of my choices, it’s the story in each that draws me to these titles and makes me drool to read them again.
1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis – Yes, I mean the entire set from The Magician’s Nephew to The Last Battle and every tale in between. This is where I fell in love with reading, and though my tastes have broadened, this is the base to which I love to return.
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell – I’m one to share very, very little when it comes to political thoughts, however, having read this book, I can’t help wondering if I’ll get to see the book’s ending in my lifetime. It’s happened before and it’s primed to happen again.
3. The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey – Dragons. Ahem, nuff said J
4. The Color Purple by Alice Walker – This is one of the few books I read after watching the movie and was able to love both of them equally.
5. Mistress of the Stone by Maria Zannini – A beautiful female captain to a crew of feared pirates, a sexy shifter, and loads of action between the two of them. Oh and the story ROCKS! Yes, a DEFINITE must reread.
6. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card – The writing, coupled with the story, blew my mind. I would love to reread and have my mind blown away yet again.
7. Addicted by Zane – Just. So. Darned. Sexy Hotttt!!!! (fan please!!)
8. A Game of Thrones by G.R.R. Martin – I’ll admit the man is a writing genius, but because of my own infatuation with a certain Stark, book 1 is where my rereading would end because, well…it’s just too painful going any further (*sniffle*, Yes, Starks, winter is coming.)
9. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – Assassin nuns! What? Yep, I’d have to reread this wonderful tale of the handmaidens of Death.
10. The Gunslinger by Stephen King – This first book in The Dark Tower series really made me look at Stephen King as more than a king of horror writing, but a master of writing. Period. It has been a very long time since I read this novel yet I know I could pick this up from book one and devour the pages, cover to cover, until I get to the end of what has been published. I must admit, I reached a point of major chagrin with the time King took in getting the series worked so I look forward to a chance to start anew.
Odd as it may sound, I would love to reread my story Neverlove (Shadow Jumpers series). Not because it’s a story I wrote, but because it is a dark and twisted story sprinkled with action and a little romance, something I know I’d want to read. Then I’d follow up with They All Fall Down, the novella sequel in the Shadow Jumpers series.
About They All Fall Down
Abby and Basil moved on from their pasts as a Cleanser and Harvestor, learning to enjoy life in sunny San Diego, CA, a far cry from dark nights crossing in between life and death to protect lost souls...or steal them.
In the shadows, Q, the new master of hell, embraces his role as the Devourer. With a crave that refuses to be denied, he sets a plan in motion to claim his deepest desires for the fall of mankind and the one woman constantly slipping from his grasps: Abby.
True love is put to the test and salvation is only possible if Abby and Basil choose the right path. Or the world could be destined for, “ashes, ashes, we all fall down.”
***This new adult paranormal romance contains sexual situations, a few swear words, and is not recommended for readers under the age of 18.***

Thank you, Angela. You certainly got me thiking. I'd happily reread Ender's Game, and any Stephen King book. But my top ten rereads would be (in no particular order): The Stand by Stephen King, Rendevous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke, Wool by Hugh Howey, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, Up Till Now by William Shatner, Voyagers I, II or III by Ben Bova, Starters by Lissa Price, and The Debt Collector Season One by Susan Kaye Quinn.
That's it for today. I'll be back on Friday with a rather puzzling cover reveal from Lexa Cain.
