Rereads: Do you ever reread a
book or series?
by Jennifer (The Book Nympho)
In the post Carmel states that after rereading some of her favorites that they no longer hold that title the second time around.
I've reread two series so far.....
Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost
Halfway to the Grave - 5 stars
One Foot in the Grave - 5 stars
At Grave's End - 5 stars
Destined for an Early Grave - 5 stars
After rereading Halfway to the Grave (ok I listened to it this time around) for a 3rd time it's still at the top of my favorite list and still 5 stars. And I'm jonesing to reread book 2.
Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
I've reread Fever series two times. Once I read it and then I listened to it. STILL FAVORITE. I actually liked book 1, Darkfever better the second time around.
I will most likely do a 3rd reread of Fever before this year is over or at the every least a reread of Iced before the new book comes out later this year.
Now it's time to talk about a reread that left me rethinking a favorite series....
Twilight series by Stephanie Meyers
Like many people, Twilight got me into reading. I was a Twilight junkee, reading the books, watching the movies.
I decided to do a reread of the series before Eclipse came out at the movies since it was my favorite book of the series.
I reread Twilight and thought meh the 2nd time but I went on to reread New Moon. First time around I was crying like a baby when Edward left Bella. Second time I was thinking, FECK him, he left go have some sexy times with the wolf boy.
I KNEW I was NOT rereading Breaking Dawn. After that too perfect ending I wanted to throw the books the 1st time around. But after rereading Twilight and New Moon, I didn't even make it to rereading Eclipse.
This is one series that was a favorite of mine that is no longer on that list. They were great at one time but I've just out grown them as a reader. I even gave away my hardback copies to a friend so she can add them to her school library. I know I'll never attempt another reread. I have all the movies so if I feel like revisiting that world I'll take the easy way out and watch the movies.
My future rereads......
Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane
I LOVE this series and I WILL reread this series in the near future. Will it still be on my favorite list with 5 star ratings? If I had to guess the answer is HELL YES.
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole
I'm not a huge fan of YA but Cole's Poison Princess just blew me way. I'm going to relisten to the audio to get ready for the next book later this year.
Do you reread books/series?
What book/series have you reread the most?
Do they still hold the same space in your heart?
