Rereading Books

I am a huge fan of rereading books. Sometimes a book is so awesome you have to pick it up again. Sometimes you feel like a different person than you were when you first read it. Sometimes you just need to read that book again for Reasons.

And I love it. I love slipping back into a book that I've loved, surrounding myself with worlds and characters that comfort me or challenge me. I love that I get something new from it every time, even if I have maxed out the number of rereads that Goodreads allows (24 if you were wondering).

My Five Most ReRead Books

I already had a vague idea of what books would be top of my reread count. They're the ones I turn to if I'm in a slump, or need a cry, or need a hug,
  1. I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
  2. Lucas by Kevin Brooks
  3. Possessed by Kate Cann
  4. Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
  5. Fashionistas by Sarra Manning

#UKReReadathon

Hollie is hosting #ukrereadathon this weekend, from 31st August - 2nd September and I can't wait to join in. There's also a chat on the Sunday at 8pm, so I'm looking forward to discussing the books I've (hopefully) read.

#UKREREADATHON

My UK ReReadathon TBR

Basically, I plan to reread the entire Night World series by LJ Smith. I first discovered the series over 15 years ago (oh. I'm old, aren't I?) and I absolutely loved them. And I can't wait any longer to dive back in.

I'm really challenging myself with this TBR as the series is Nine Books Long. The good thing is they're Point Horror, and I remember them being short enough that I could read them after school, before bed, in one shot. I'll be ticking them off as I finish them!
  1. Secret Vampire ✔
  2. Daughters of Darkness
  3. Spellbinder
  4. Dark Angel
  5. The Chosen
  6. Soulmate
  7. Huntress
  8. Black Dawn
  9. Witchlight

  1. Good luck on the rereadathon! The Night World series is awesome! I read them quite a while ago and still need to read the last three stories but L.J. Smith's writing is incredible! As much as I love to reread old favorites, I always feel a bit guilty about all those other books I haven't read yet on my shelves. However, I try to carve out a time every few months to get at least one reread done. Happy reading!

  2. When I absolutely adored a book, I re-read. I have re-read "A Court of Thorns and Roses" so many time! The whole trilogy! in english AND in french!

  3. Reading an old favourite is so comforting and familiar! There is always something new to pick up each time too. I have a few books on my book shelf I want to read first but then I’ll revisit some older ones. I love the idea of a rereadathon, hope you enjoy! <3 xx

  4. I rarely reread books, maybe I'll start doing it to really appreciate some favourites

  5. I like to re-read some favourites, especially if it's been a while since I read them. I definitely didn't know that Goodreads will only let you mark a book as re-read 24 times, that's a fun piece of trivia haha! I own Rivers of London and started reading it a while ago but I got distracted by another book and didn't end up going back to it. I really liked what I read though, I need to give it another try!

  6. I remember taking Night World (just the first book) on holiday because my mum would only let me take 2 books. I'd read it twice before the plane landed. Good luck!

  9. I used to reread books a lot but in recent years I haven't did it as much. I loved the Night World series! I read the series back in 2010 and I also read LJ Smith's other books and loved them, I keep hoping she'll publish more!

  11. I barely ever reread books, if I do I know plenty of time has to have passed. I have a few in mind for next year as its been a long time.
