Re: What book do you reread the most?

I read the "Dragonlance Chronicles" and "Dragonlance Legends" continuously. I read a little of these same six books every day, even if the day has been very full and I only have time for a few pages. When I reach the end of Test of the Twins, I put it back on the shelf and pull out Dragons of Autumn Twilight and start all over again. I’ve kept this cycle going for about twenty-two years now, never tiring, loving the first chapter of the Chronicles as much as I love the last page of the Legends.

I realize these are six books, not one—but it really is all one big thing. Dragonlance represents all that I love about reading, the finest example I can offer about the joy literature gives me because it has the things I love most. A fantastical world to explore. Swords, axes, bows, and magic. Humor, tragedy, love, honor, battles, redemption, falling to darkness. Journies, longing, searching, hoping. A sense of a longing for home that laces irresistible wanderlust. Flawed but likable and unforgettable characters. I've revisited their stories for so long that they are like old friends I've had for a long time. Friends I made so young that reading of their lives and adventures, learning their past and what drove them, actually impacted my morals, the way I respond to others, and how I react to poor luck or hard times in my own life.

It's that great of a story. It truly is.

Honestly, I've probably read Percy Jackson the most out of all the books I've read. I think the books are fun and the stories are deeply connected with my childhood. I know what's going to happen every time I read them over, but I love revisiting the world and all of the unique characters.

Going into the new year, I am rereading the Bible once again. Neverending good goal!

Usually I choose not to re read books. I blame it on either my ADD or the fact that I already know what's going to happen so it never interested me to do so. However, I chose to pick up a book I read when I was a teenager, The Celestine Prophecy. I was blown away at what I forgot and re learned and I was able to understand the concept much better. I am going to read more books that I read when I was younger, The Great Gatsby and more mainly because I don't remember it as much now so it will feel like it's new all over again.

Latest Review: Unveil your Intimate Self by Elena Georgiadou

I have lost count of the number of times I read the 'Road less travelled' by M. Scott Peck. This book was written by a psychotherapist who clearly had a vocation for this profession. It conveys extraordinary dedication in helping others, and this writer's voice is one of immense compassion. This is a book that stays with me for a long time every time I read it. No matter how many times, I always learn from it. As a psychology lecturer, it is an enriching experience that I recommend my students. Their feedback has consistently been positive too!

The only books I’ve read more than once are “Gone With The Wind’ and “Silence of the Lambs” There are too many books and too little time.

Anything by Abbi Glines I have read at least twice if not more! There are great reads with lifelike characters who steal your heart.

My favorite book from my childhood is Roald Dahl's Matilda. I've read it dozens of times since I was a kid, usually at least once a year, often more. I've destroyed the binding on several copies just from reading it too much. It's a combination of the comfort of the familiar story, as well as just being sucked in by the writing style. It's often something I read when I just need to escape for a while into something simple with a happy ending and a charming ride.

I don't reread books much, but when I do, I reread the Harry Potter series!

Latest Review: "Yesterday" by Samyann

Post by desareedany » 14 Jan 2019, 14:19

Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson. Just such a beautiful, VERY original story idea! It doesn't hurt that my life pretty much mirrors Jane's except for the being rich part. My mom is just like hers in the story and I love the idea of having such a confidant that understands everything about me because he was there for all the childhood parts of it. That would've been truly wonderful.

I've read Harry Potter many times. I've grown up wit it, it helped me to overcome the fact of being far from popular at school. It's my traditional Christmas read every year. Something Christmassy about it...

The Inheritance Cycle and Lord of the Rings are some of my most re-read books. The Shannara series is probably going to be added to that list :) I also re-read The Wind in the Willows often.

The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, both by Dan Brown. I read them at least once a year and each time, I get caught up in it again! And then I want to watch every documentary I can find about Mary Magdalene or the Holy Grail :)
