In the last weeks I have reread a lot of books, it's something I always do when I'm in a reading slump. But I not only reread books when I'm in a reading slump, I do it regularly regardless of if I have lately read some great books or not.
I love revisiting characters I have read about before. Every time I reread a favourite book I learn some new little details about my beloved characters and the world they life in. Every time I reread a favourite book I feel fantastic and happy.
In my family I'm the only one who regularly rereads books. My mother and sister, who are also avid readers, never reread books and they don't really understand why I do it. And I know that a lot of other readers also don't reread books.
The books I like to reread are mostly contemporary romances, for example books by Nora Roberts (the bride quartet, the In Death books and maybe a trillion others :) ), books by Linda Howard (hello Mackenzie's and many more), books like "See Jane Score" by Rachel Gibson, "Natural Born Charmer" by SEP and some others. Right now I'm rereading "Anna and the French kiss" by Stephanie Perkins and I love it as much as I did when reading it the first time, but maybe even more.
Rereading books strengthens my love for a book, the characters and their story. Rereading books is like visiting good friends that you are always happy to see. Rereading books means for me having a great time and that's why I do it.
Do you like to reread books? And if you do, which books do you reread?
