The Reread Book Tag

A big thanks to The Sassy Library Fox for nominating me for this tag. You can check out their site here, it’s brilliant! Hope you enjoy this tag, it’s a really fun one 🙂

Rules:

The Prompts

A Newer Favourite You Would Reread
Okay. So in my mind, there are two different types of rereaders. Some people will reread the same books over and over, whilst for others (like me) reading a book twice times means that it’s a big favourite! I think the most I’ve ever reread a book is about 4 times. What type of rereader are you? However, I’ve been thinking of rereading They Both Die At The End for a while – just waiting for when everything’s a bit happier to a read a book with that title…

.

A childhood favorite you could read 100 times and still love
This leads on from my last point, but when I was younger I’d mostly read famous books just to tick them off my bucket list and then never look at them again! So, there’s a lot of series that I read too young (Noughts And Crosses who?) or can’t remember anything about and want to reread to understand all the jokes on Tumblr (*cough* Percy Jackson *cough*).

.

A book you’ve read but want to listen to the audiobook
Did you know that LIN MANUEL MIRANDA narrates the audiobook for Aristotle and Dante Discovers The Secrets Of The Universe? Not only is it a gorgeous book… but it’s Lin Manuel Miranda (I’m a big musicals fan 😊).I’m not the biggest fan of audiobooks, but when actors or celebrities I like narrate them, it’s always really fun to recognize their voice.

.

A Classic You Read In School But Want To Try Again
Luckily, I haven’t been made to read too bad books for school, but I think that it takes some of the magic out of reading when you’re analyzing the author’s intentions of every other word. I started Of Mice And Men last year, and actually still have my copy because Corona never gave me an opportunity to give it back, so I might give it another go!

.

A Series You Want To Reread For An Adaptation
Three words: Shadow and Bone. You don’t know how excited I am to watch this show… although it makes me all the more scared that they’ll mess it up 😬. I’ve got some very strategic rereading of the series planned for the weeks before the release – although I’ll probably reread all the other Grishaverse books too. Because why not?

.

A book you DNF’ed but would be willing to give a second chance
Generally, I try to stick out books to the bitter end, so if I DNF’ed it, it would be for a big reason. The only one that really comes to mind is The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han that I put down after about 10 pages! As a fan reader of dark fantasy (and maybe a bit of a book snob), I feel like the title was enough of a reason to DNF…

.

A book you hated and never want to read again
I’m honestly struggling to come up with a book where my feelings were this strong against it. There’s been a few that I wouldn’t reread in a long time, but nothing super severe?

.

A series you want to reread for the fun of it
I’ve been struggling to not answer Harry Potter for all of these questions because I read the books 4 YEARS AGO and have never reread them – it’s a travesty, I know. Even worse, I’d call myself a big Potterhead, so rereading these is definitely a necessity. I’m really interested to see how my perception of the plot and the characters will have changed know that I have so much prior knowledge about the series.

.

I love everything and anything Holly Black and I’d love to reread the Spiderwick chronicles when libraries are open again.


I Nominate

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

I’m a teenager (and Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teen romance (it’s ironic I know but you can’t really go wrong with 'Eleanor and Park'). And one day, I decided to try and share some of my opinions on some great – and not so great – books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it; I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. OMG! I didn’t know Lin Manuel Miranda narrates “Aristotle and Dante Discovers The Secrets Of The Universe”! That would be a hell of a reason to reread it as an audio book. XD I’m really looking forward to “Shadow and Bone” too, but just like you I’m also kind of worried they might screw it up. *lol* As long as it’s better than “The Shadowhunters” I will be fine though. It can’t get any worse than that. Haha!
    Thanks for doing the tag! I loved to read through your answers! 😀

    1. It’s a great tag! Arg yes the shadow hunters adaptations 😬 I haven’t tried it yet but I watched the trailer and I think that was enough for me! All the characters just looked wrong. Hope you (and me lol) enjoy shadow and bone!

  2. Never reread a book till this year- it started on Narnia. While it most likely wouldn’t be this year- plan on rereading Harry Potter and glad to find I am a Hufflepuff (Fun knowing where you would be sorted into)

    Keep on debating if I should reread the Original Percy Jackson series= that is only if I plan to read the Heroes of Olympus series. Remember nothing from the PJ series, but do remember it was one of my gateways into loving Greey Mythology

    1. Wow same! I think I’d like to reread Harry Potter at *some* point this year, but there’s so many books its quite a big commitment. The fact that those books were what got you into Greek mythology is great – I too was obsessed when I read them for the first time ha. What’s your favourite part? 🙂

      1. Really don’t remember Percy Jackson- however remember that he is son of Poseidon. Really do not remember much

        I got an incredible boxed set of HP for Christmas.

      2. Ooo that sounds great – the new editions of Harry Potter are gorgeous. I have my mum’s copy from the 90s, so they’re a bit battered but it’s quite funny to see how the illustrations of Harry have changed in nearly 30 years.
