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.
