Rereading mini-challenge

Written by Kirsten on April 21st, 2012

I try not to reread during Readathons, but I am a notorious rereader in general. Most of my favorites are series: Orson Scott Card’s Ender saga; Harry Potter; Mercedes Lackey’s Heralds of Valdemar and Magic’s Pawn series. I’m really trying to reread less these days, but sometimes I need the comfort of old friends and don’t have the emotional energy to make new ones – this applies to “real” life and my reading life, as the relationships I have with characters in great books are every bit as real to me as the ones I have with the people around me, they’re just easier to maintain :)

One other book I have reread many times and likely will many more is Les Feinberg’s Stone Butch Blues. It was life-changing for me the first time, and has had a different and still profound effect on me each time since. It’s always interesting to me how my personal growth and evolution influences the interpretation of books I’ve read at different times in my life.

I finished Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and want to be Jenny Lawson’s BFF forever. I’m currently flying through Thirteen Reasons Why – it’s raw, intriguing, and compelling, making it a perfect Readathon book. Only eight and a half hours to go; we’re nearly two thirds of the way through!
