More recently I have found an interest in rereading books more and more often; I think one of my first pushes to accepting that rereading can be a good thing was when I tried to pick up A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young. It was a very difficult book to understand in the first place, and when I didn’t remember the few key clues to what was going on in the story, I realized I had no choice but to reread the first book. This is one of the more obvious reasons why rereading might be helpful, when continuing a series after a year or two of waiting. I don’t exactly like this reason behind rereading a book, especially if I wouldn’t have reread the book for any other reason, but it can be beneficial regardless.
My most recent reread was of Divergent by Veronica Roth. I so glad that I reread this book, because I now remember why I loved it so much the first time I read it. I have a plan to read one of the Divergent books per month until the release date. I read Divergent in August, and I plan to read Insurgent this month before the release of Allegiant coming up. I didn’t realize it until recently, but learning to love an old favorite again can be one of the more fun experiences in reading. I loved being able to use my past knowledge and find famous quotes from the book in context, and relive famous scenes just because I want to. It’s such a refreshing experience. I can’t wait until I reread Insurgent later on- to have a chance to rediscover a treasure.
Since discovering my love of reading old favorites, I have even started making a shelf on goodreads of all of the books I want to reread some day. It's very hard to stay away from them sometimes! I would love to hear of books you might be planning on rereading coming up, and if you have any thoughts on the matter.
