There wont be any real reviews on these books because I have already reviewed them on this blog. I will link those reviews.
Now, without further ado: Let's get into re-reading!
When I told a few of my friends about this project, they were a bit curious to why I re-read books. As I have found out its something that not everybody does. I can not speak for everybody, but here are the reasons why I like to re-read books:
1. A sense of comfort.
Re-visiting a world that you have grown close to is very comforting. It sometimes can feel like coming home (Harry Potter). I like to re-read books when my life is very hectic and changing. Then the books remind me of the times when I first read them.
2. Memories of times long gone
While we are on the topic of "reminding": Re-reading books that have shaped you can stir up memories of times that you enjoyed.
I mark my favourite passages in books, sometimes I even will write notes on the sides. When I am re-reading the books I can get a glimpse into what I thought of the book at the time. I can see my own growth. I do this in very nostalgic phases.
Sometimes you are just curious whether or not your opinion has changed on a book. Its that simple.
4. Remembering whats going on
Some series are just to long and to complicated to keep everything stored in our memories. Then a new installment comes out and you have to re-read all the books before, because: What had happened before??
Those are a few reasons why I re-read books. Why do you re-read books? Please let me know!
Here are the books that I re-read last month:
- Shadow and Bone
- Siege and Strom
- Ruin an Rising
- A darker Shade of Magic
(I am so exited for these books!!!)
Thank you so much for reading :)
