We had a great discussion in the comments of my post on my Recent Bookish Thoughts. One of the things I talked about (and others shared their thoughts on in the comments) is re-reading books. You can check out that post HERE.
So I’ve been thinking….I’d love to hear what books YOU like to re-read. Being not much of a re-reader, there’s only a few books that I read for myself that I’ve re-read. So I’d love to hear what books have been YOUR favorites to read over again. And maybe again and again… 🙂
I’ll start by sharing three books I have re-read. And if you’ve been a reader of my blog, then you will recognize these because I’ve talked about them before. 😉
I’ve read The Reading Promise twice and can see myself possibly reading it again. I’ve mentioned before that I was just drawn into the author’s world. Sometimes I found myself laughing…..sometimes I would find my eyes watery with tears. This book illustrates the power of reading aloud and the power of books in general. If you haven’t read this one, I highly recommend it!
I just finished reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for the third time last week. I really like the way it’s written…it’s written in the epistolary style and I think reading letters back and forth can really draw the reader in. I am also a huge fan of historical fiction and this book most definitely is that. I also appreciate the snarkiness of the main character and think the author(s) did a brilliant job of mixing humor with the heavy (the setting is just after World War II). But beyond all that, or maybe because it’s the combination of all those things, there is just something about this book that is a comfort read for me. If you don’t like this book, just don’t tell me. I may just be heart-broken. 😉 Just kidding. 🙂
Finally, I LOVE The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It’s a moving story and also has absolutely stunning pictures! I’ve read it twice now and can’t wait to read it aloud with my daughter! You can read my thoughts on it HERE.
So those are three favorite books of mine that I have re-read. Now it’s your turn! What books have you read more than once and why?
P.S. – Just a reminder that I will be hosting a book club here on my blog for The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro. You can check out my post Book Club Coming In May for more details of the spring/summer line up of book clubs beginning with The Remains of the Day hosted here and then the other book clubs Silvia will be hosting. I will be putting up a post next week introducing the book and giving the schedule. Be sure to subscribe to my blog over in the sidebar so that you don’t miss a post!
