Today's Feature - obsession with books



Today's question

Q. Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?



Honestly the only series I have gone back and re-read was the Twilight series and it wasn't because it is my all time favorite. I did it before the movies came (come) out just so the story is fresh in my mind so I can better compare the movie to the book. I rarely re-read books because I like to keep my first thoughts on the book real.



Look forward to seeing what series you all picked, if any and of course meet and follow new blogs!

TGIF!!


Until next time...Happy Reading!

I reread that series too just to refresh my memory for the movie. I normally can't reread a series over and over again unless I REALLY love it because there's so many books I have to read already. Great answer!!

I would love to go back and re-read like I use to but, I have so many books now that I want to read that it's hard to do!

I've reread Twilight a lot. But I figured it'd be a popular answer so I put other books I tend to reread a lot in my answer.

I've only read the Twilight series once, but I've been wanting to go back and reread at least the first book. Just to see again where the phenomenon began.

New follower from the FF here. Nice to meet you and have a great weekend.

Hi & Happy Friday!

I am guilty of reading Twilight a few times ;)

Thank-you for stopping by my blog earlier www.obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com

Have a great weekend..

I don't think I could reread Twilight. Sure, I liked it, but there's just too many things I didn't like also. Either way, I've reread Harry Potter like a zillion times so I'm not really one to talk :)

I've read the Twilight series three times myself, but mostly, as you said, before the movies.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the Twilight Saga! They're the books that first got me into reading (and loving) YA! I've re-read them more times I can even count -- before the movies, of course. x)

Thanks so much for stopping by, CBS! I hope you have the most amazing weekend! :)

Hopping through. I like re-reading the Twilight books before each movie too. I usually only re-read portions that I like of the books. I'm going to read all of Breaking Dawn before the movie.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I too don't reread books or series that much, only the ones I love VERY much, (harry potter) and I've reread The Witches by Roald Dahl several times. I think most of the times a book isn't the same once you reread it.

Have a great week!

Well that's a good way to refresh your memory! I'm sorry you haven't done it with an all time favorite yet though! I love those novels that continues to drag you in. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hi Tena. *waves* Before I go any further I have to say that I LOVE your blog title!

It hasn't surprised me that Twilight has come up quite often today. Like you I don't tend to re-read books very often. But I do have some old favourites I return to every once in a while - and if I'm in a reading slump I enjoy picking one of them up and just letting myself get lost.
