Book Discussion Questions:Edited 12/1/2016
Do you ever reread books or series?
I've wanted to reread the Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris (No, I will not refer to it as Trueblood.) for a while. I've never actually finished the series, and truthfully I have no idea where I left off in it. So I plan to start rereading it here in a few minutes. I think this will be good because I can finally finish the series, and the books are fairly short. I loved Outlander, but I don't know if I have it in me to read another 800-page book right now.
What have you reread?
What are you wanting to reread?
What are the Pros/Cons of rereading and not rereading in your mind?
I reread books fairly frequently. I recently read The Giver again. I've read the Harry Potter series on more than one occasion. I Clockwork Angel a second time when Chris got me the full Infernal Devices series for Christmas last year. I'm sure there's more, but I'm drawing a blank. As far as what I want to reread (excluding the Southern Vampire series) Hunger Games, Divergent, Wicked, Phillippa Gregory's novels, and Witch of Cologne are at the top of my list.
I like to reread because a lot of the time I don't read the next book in a series as soon as its available. I'm pretty terrible at reading books as soon as their released. So a lot of series I had read up on the series, but new books have been added. It's most likely been years since I've read the series, and so I've forgotten 90% of what's happened. It helps me catch up and remember what happened, and sometimes it's just nice to catch up with beloved characters.
I don't have any cons for rereading. I know some people are vastly against it, but to me, it's just like watching a movie a second time.
