Subject: What books from your teen years would you like to read now.

Written By: snozberries on 04/01/09 at 1:08 am



Are there any books you read as a teen/pre-teen that you would like to read again now as an adult?



And have you re-read any- did you gain a different perspective because you where you are now versus where you were then?



I just typed Go Ask Alice and I really think I want to revisit that book. I don't know that I fully understood it when I read it at 13.

Outsiders because I loved it so much.

Virtutally all my christopher pike books.



My two favorite books were always Bridge to Terabithia and Tuck Everlasting.... I read both of them again a few years ago..not because of the films but because I was telling someone about them and I wanted to know if they were still good.... Bridge to Terebithia still had me bawling like a baby but I didn't connect with Jesse like I did as a kid... I understood the parents better because I was ollder and realized how life worked....

When I read Tuck Everlasting I wanted to drink out of the well even more than the first time... guess my mortality is catching up to me so it forever sounds even better than ever... ;)

The little Prince (St Exupery) I really liked that book as a pre-teen. I should read it again. It's a really cool book. Another one I should read again is "The Stone angel" - Margaret Lawrence

Darkness at Noon-(Arthur Koestler) was probably the first real book I ever read.

I read "Go Ask Alice" when I was in the midst of a "Go Ask Alice" period of my own.  I was so annoyed with that book - I thought it was completely melodramatic and made up.  I'm sure it would scare the pants off of a 13 year old though.  ;D

It was completely made up.  ;)


For me it was Pigman. I read it as a teen and LOVED it. I found a copy of it not too long ago and reread it. It now sits in my personal library.

Oh my gosh, The Pigman is such a great book.  It's so sad how Mr.Pignati dies.

I'd go back and read Iggie's House by Judy Blume again.

I didn't say how though, so in theory I didn't ruin it.

I'd go back and read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe again.
