Top 5 Wednesday: Favorites You'd Like to Revisit

.
 
Hello! Here we are again with another Top 5 Wednesday post—because I'm very behind in posting my book reviews (I still have 3 in my drafts that I haven't finished yet) 😂. This time, the topic I'm going to talk about is some of my favorite books that I'd like to revisit. I actually have a lot of books that I really want to reread because I think they would serve as a reminder for me from time to time. However, there are always new books that interests me and I don't know if I'll ever have time to reread older books. Well, whether I'll be able to do it or not, here's my list of favorites that I'd like to revisit when I can 😊.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
I first read this book back in 2009 and this book made me fell in love with Mitch Albom's writing. Tuesdays with Morrie is a book that will always have a special place in my heart because it has certainly changed me and my perspective about life. It's been 9 long years since I read it and I think it would be nice to revisit this book one day 😊.
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
On a similar tone with the previous book, The Last Lecture is one of those books that has changed my life as well. When I finished this book in 2010, I especially made a poster compiling all the life lessons that I got from this book and stuck it to the wall beside my bed. Oh, and I also used it as my desktop wallpaper as well. So I guess you have an idea how much this book affected me. This is the kind of book that I'd want my children to read in the future. 💖

When I was still in school, I don't really have good social skills, so the title of this book really attracted me back then—although I don't necessarily want to win more friends 😂. I didn't expect much when I read it in 2011, but turns out this book has a lot of really good points. I probably have forgotten most of it, thus I'd like to revisit it again.
Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman
I read this book last year and it contains a lot of things that I truly needed at the time. It's a book about controlling what we say—which is one of the hardest things to do in life 😂. I remember I was going through a rough patch and this book reminded me how we can build someone up or bring someone down with our words. It's so good, relatable,  and supported with biblical references too.
Rising Strong by Brené Brown
The last book on this list is the most recent one I've read, but didn't got a chance to write a review for. Rising Strong is my first introduction to Brené Brown's writing and I think she's an amazing person. This book really inspired me and encouraged me a lot. There are parts that felt like a slap on the face, but I truly feel like it's a slap that I needed. Would definitely revisit this one day after I read her other books 😊.



I think I've mentioned these books on my blog too many times in the past, but I don't mind promoting them over and over because I genuinely love them all. All of the books on this list are non-fiction but I certainly have some fiction books that I'd like to revisit as well. Do you have favorites that you'd like to revisit? Feel free to share them in the comments below or share links for your own Top 5 Wednesday post 😊.
