If you haven't already noticed, this year my booklist has been jam packed with rereads!!! I've reread all the Hunger Games books and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. And, currently, I am rereading The Host, Game of Thrones, Anna Karenina, and Outlander. Some of you may be wondering "What's up with that?"
I'm partial to rereading books, but not every book. It has to be one of my favorites (in which case I can read the book more than twice, three times, ten times, it really doesn't matter), or it has to be one that caught my interest, but there was something that I didn't quite get and it deserves one more read to really cement it in my mind. Another scenario would be when a movie or tv show is being made out of the book and I want to catch up again before seeing it. :)
Although, I know there are people out there that would never reread a book. Why reread when there are so many new books out there that you have yet to read? Better to have more books under your belt than a few?
Either way it's reading!!! Check out this interesting article on the 26 Benefits of Reading!
So, your turn! Do you reread? Why or why not? Do you see any benefit to rereading? To not rereading?
I'd love to hear from you!
