Good morning/evening fellow readers,
Today I`m going to do another post in my bookish- tea- time category where everything that doesn`t have a categories here on book blogging world is placed. Now for today`s post I am going to be talking about re-reading books.
I don`t know about you but I used to have this thing about re-reading books where I just couldn`t do it. The reason may be because I already know the plot and so the element of surprise isn`t there. However when I talking to someone about watching a film over and over again, the person said that it`s good to watch films again because you see some things that you may have missed the first time. Then it suddenly dawned on me that maybe I should read books more than once so that I would get the best out of the book.
Taking it back to earlier this year I first read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, which is one of my favourite book, and a few months after reading it for the first time I read again. The second time round I didn`t have any troubles reading it, and although I knew the plot, it didn`t bother me and I loved the book the second time around just like the first. If you`re wondering, yes I did cry- it`s so heart wrenching.
In addition I have just recently finished The Assassin`s Blade by Sarah J. Maas and the book pulled back into the world the book is set in. Once I finished the book and spent a lot of time brawling my eyes out, I immediently felt the urge to read all the published books of the Throne of Glass series again. However I stopped myself because I has other books on my TBR that needed a little of attention first.
To conclude, I have now changed my mind on re-reading books and I think it`s perfectly fine to read again an old love *coughs Eleanor and Park*. Now I feel like my reading habit has changed and I now only read the book that I want to read or has a pulled me towards it to read. I have now learned that I don`t need to read the “latest” book that everyone is talking about because I might not be my kind of read and I would be wasting time and effort when I could have been reading a book that I`m really exited about.
Thank you for reading!
