How many of you re-read books? Until I read Twilight, (I know….Twilight? But those sparkly fucking vampires renewed my love for reading, big time) I don’t think I ever re-read anything before. But I noticed I enjoyed them just as much, if not more than the first time.
You can be so caught up in the story the first time, you almost rush through with excitement. But the second time, you find all those delicious details you may have missed, you read more into it, you pass the infatuation phase and fall in love. I also prefer to re-read the last in the series before getting the newest book. Herein lies my problem.
I try to read as much as I can, as fast as I can for you guys. So I continually have books to recommend and you guys stick around! Therefore, re-reading a book, especially one that I have already reviewed seems counterproductive. But I started this blog because I LOVE to read. And I miss doing re-reads. So here is the thing. 3 sequels are out now (or coming quickly) and I HAVE to re-read the previous books.
Right now I’m re-reading Naked (The Blackstone Affair #1) by Raine Miller before All In (The Blackstone Affair #2) comes out tomorrow. I know, I just read that! Well, I’m loving the re-read, and since this is short, I don’t mind. I’m glad I’m getting in that breathless mood already and will be sucked right into All In.
Cherrie Lynn’s Leave Me Breathless (The Ross Siblings Series) came out yesterday. I really want to re-read Rock Me first. It’s been a year and a half, and I’m not sure what I remember (besides the penis piercing!). Since I loved it the first time I know I’ll love it again. Iced, by Karen Marie Moning (The Fever Series) came out last week. I have been so excited for so long about this! But it has been so long since I read Shadowfever, and this is one confusing world, I feel like I need to do a re-read. But damn, that is one long book! So I’m debating on these. Who has read them? Do you think I need to re-read the previous books?
Do you re-read books? What books have you re-read numerous times just for pleasure? (Fifty Shades anyone?) Do you save certain sex scenes for re-reads at the right time, and if so what are they ;-)? ( I like Olivia Cunning…) What series have you re-read the previous book in? Am I the only freak that does that?
So many questions I have! Let me know what you guys do. Inquiring minds want to know! (Don’t forget, you are entered in the monthly Reader Appreciation drawing for each post comment you make).
