|Discussion| What Book Has You Coming Back?

Hello my amazing awesome nerds! It’s Sunday again and time for another discussion topic. Although this week I’m going to keep it short and sweet.

I recently read a quote from an author that said “she didn’t re-read books because she didn’t like going back to where she had already been.” This left me wondering how many people felt this way and how many actually re-read books?

I’m one of those that can re-read a book until its cover falls off, not because I’m lacking a ridiculous TBR pile but because a good book is like coming home after a long time gone. Just like people have comfort food to make them happy , there are books that will instantaneously put a smile on my face and make my world better.

Sooo tell me what your thoughts are on re-reads and if you’re feeling frisky tell me what your favorite re-read is.

Happy Sunday my awesome nerds.

  1. Great topic! A book has to be really special for me to re-read it! I can remember re-reading Poisonwood Bible and Bel Canto, but not many others….I’m always on the hunt for new ones! Love your blog!

    1. Thank you so much Jewels !! I’m also always on the hunt for the next great read. I finished reading a book today that inspired my topic. I will never re-read this book for it utterly destroyed me and left me crying but I will also never forget it!

    1. I can understand that! I’m more likely to re-read a book then rewatch a movie. Weird, I know but there always small details I forget about In books that make it seem new each time.

  2. Everything that City of Novels said!!! If I re-read a book it’s mostly because I’ve forgotten the WHOLE thing. (Bad memory) But, that’s RARE! There’s just something dreadful to me about reading the same words over & over again.

    1. I couldn’t imagine not reading my favorite book again!!! Buuuuut I totally understand where you’re coming from! I’m very surprised by the amount of people who don’t like to re-read but I get people wanting to move on to the next read to see where that book can take them as well!!

  3. I love re reading my favourite novels! As a child I would tell my dad “Daddy, could you tell me the story about… *me summarizing the entire story*” and then listen as he re told it 🙂 So as an adult, I still love to revisit stories/ novels that I loved: Miguel Street by VS Naipaul, Always a Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch, A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare, The Count of Monte Cristo… to name a few 🙂

  4. I accidentally hit send on my previous comment before I finished my thought! *face palms* I honestly don’t re-read anything until it’s been long enough for me to struggle with remembering the every scene. For some reason, characters tend to live in my head for a while and I want them to go back home so I can redo my mental house before I invite them back again. I don’t know if that made sense. haha.
