Is there a book (or several books) that you’ve already read but would just love to be able to read for the first time?
I’m not much of a re-reader, so there are a lot of books that I’ve already enjoyed, but don’t plan on enjoying again. Though it would be fun to enjoy for the first time again. So since I’m lazy, I’ll just show my “favorites” shelf. Any of these books would be fun to enjoy for the first time.
Hmmm …..There are several books I would love to be able to experience again for the first time. Here they are in no particular order:
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (really, did THINK I would have a list in which this book is not made a part?)
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
Easy by Tammara Webber
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and
The reasonI so often re-read books is because I love the experience. I love reading my favorite books again and again (especially listen to audio books again and again) because I enjoy the experience. However, nothing beats the very first time you hear Kellan Kyle pour his heart out to a disbelieving Kierra and yet, STILL act like a jerk the next day. tsk tsk tsk. Kellan.
I’m not much of a re-reader, either. There are too many other books out that that I could be reading for the first time. If I was going to pick books to re-read, though, it would probably be books I read when I was younger and just don’t really remember all that well. Jules Vern would be towards the top of the list. I’ve re-read Jane Austen’s books, so maybe some Bronte (Charlotte and Emily, both). I’d throw in some Agatha Christie as well. (Yes, I was a precocious reader as a child.) Of the books I’ve read as an adult, the books I’d want to experience for the first time include Outlander, Pillars of the Earth, Harry Potter, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and Phedre’s Triolgy.
