What book(s) do you find yourself going back to? Beloved children’s classics? Favorites from college? Something that touched you and just makes you long to visit?
(Because, doesn’t everybody have at least one book they would like to curl up with, even if they don’t make a habit of rereading books? Even if they maybe don’t even have the time to visit and just think back longingly?) – BTT
Definitely those books that I read as a child and even as a teenager really stayed with me. I’ve read both the Harry Potter and His Dark Materials series about 2-3 times. There are a few books from my adolescence that I’d like to reread one day such as some of Shakespeare’s plays, Anna Karenina, and other memorable books from that time in my life. I don’t think I’m ready to go back to them yet. I’ve already reread Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion as well.
The older I get, the more I feel like I want to reread more books. In general, I am not someone who makes a habit of rereading books. This is good because I only ever buy new books when they are cookbooks or they are books I know I will reread.
Harry Potter is on my list as well although I’ve reread it quite a number of times through the years.
Hi Kristin! I think Harry Potter is just that popular and comforting especially those of us who “grew” with Harry. Have a great weekend!
HP made my list as well! Its one of the only two books I re-read on a regular basis!
Hi Amanda! It really is one of my top rereads too. It’s a true classic. Thanks for commenting!
Anna Karenina is a good one too.
Hi TBM! Anna Karenina was my first Russian work among other things. A few more years and I’ll be ready to reread it again. Cheers!
