I can never stay away from The Magician's Nephew for too long. I love the idea of singing a world into existence. The book painted a beautiful picture. If you are in the mood for an audiobook, they have a good version of this story on YouTube.

I will occasionally go through H.P. Lovecraft stories too. Existential Horror creeps me out in a way that I crave.
If it looks bad, you've zoomed in too far.

Unconditional love is impossible until you can look at yourself without judgment.

Once is plenty for any/everything.

I think rereading books is very fun when the book is interesting and refreshing. I'm more into Young Adult books, and I find that I can reread these ones many more times than other genres. Also, I've become accustomed to rereading texts in class, and that's usually always great because I can find something new to focus on/argue/use as evidence that I hadn't seen before :)

According to me, rereading books is entertaining. I will remember a scene or chapter from a book and just like that, I'll be rereading the whole book again. I have reread Harry Potter and The Convenent series by Jennifer L. Armentrout; more than I can remember.

I enjoy reading books again after a period. I have re-read the entire Harry Potter series, A walk to remember, Pride and Prejudice, Tom Sawyer and few more.

I actually don't enjoy rereading or rewatching things at all! There are so many things on my TBR list that it wouldn't do me any good tp reread old books!
