Book Blogger Hop – April 28 – May 4, 2017

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:

How many books have you re-read? If you have re-read books, please tell us the book’s title and why you re-read it. (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

 

I used to reread books ALL THE TIME! I can’t even count how many times I’ve read Pride & Prejudice, the Harry Potter series, and a few others. I used to read these at least once a year. It’s been a while since I revisited these favorites. I do miss them and I’m hoping to get to them this year. And there are quite a few books that I want to reread that I have only read once. I love to reread my favorites . . . it’s like visiting old friends. I love the new experience I have each time I read the books. I’m at a different place in my life each time, so I have a different perspective.

 

I try to reread Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson once a year, but other than that I don’t tend to repeat reads. There are so many books out there I’ll never get a chance to read–it’s got to be quite a book for me to read it again.

 

What about you? Do you reread books?

  1. I reread too and it’s pretty much for the same reason Chrissy does – to revisit favorite characters. Of course do to time constraints I don’t revisit nearly as much as I used too!

  2. Chrissy – I’m like you, I love to re-read. I love comfort reading. And I’ve reread Pride and Prejudice many times. One of my favorite books. And Harry Potter, too, of course.

    Melissa – I do understand how it can be difficult to re-read when there are so many other books to read. I love re-reading, but it’s not for everyone.

  3. I so wish I can re-read some of my favorites books, but unfortunately I don’t because I want to read what I have on my long tbr pile first. That includes books that I do for blog tour etc. Have a great weekend and happy blog hopping.

  4. Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop!!

    I hope you have fun each week.

    Marvelous answer….I actually do not re-read, but visiting old friends is a perfect reason to re-read.

    ENJOY your weekend, and Happy Hopping!!

  5. Pride & Prejudice is one that I’ve reread a number of times. I have a few fantasy series that I always go back to as well. Great post!

  6. Like visiting old friends – yes, that’s how I feel about re-reading good books too! Pride and Prejudice is one of the classics that I try to read just about every year.

  7. I actually do revisit old friends, as Elizabeth so eloquently put it, on a regular basis. Why? Some of the stories are well-written and I seem to learn something new each time I read them.

  8. I am not much of a re-reader, but I do plan to re-read a lot of my favorites . . . someday. I’m just not sure when someday will be. Haha.

    I hope you have a great week! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Re-visiting beloved favorites is great, but I agree — there are SO many books out there we’ll never be able to read….sigh….

    I LOVE the Harry Potter series!! I’ve re-read the first 3 books. And, of course, I’ve also re-read The Twilight Saga!!

    Thanks for commenting on my own BBH post!! Have a great week!! <3 : )

  10. Ah, the days before book blogging! I had time for more re-reads and personal reads in general. Thanks for dropping by my blog. 🙁
