I used to reread books more often. I used to reread the Harry Potter books every summer in anticipation of each new book in the series. I used to also reread random books whenever I wanted to refresh my memory of the story. For example, I recall rereading A Solitary Blue and A Separate Peace. The only book I’ve reread in the past five years is Night and that was for one of my book clubs.
This past year I’ve been so busy binging on books and authors that are new to me that I hadn’t had the urge to reread anything. However, I recently realized that I fancy rereading Americanah. I also plan to reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Spanish (Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal), does that count?
I am totally OK with not choosing to reread books like I used to, I just have different reading priorities at the moment. I imagine that I will want to reread some of the amazing books I’ve had the chance to read recently. But that’ll be a little farther down the road.
How do y’all feel about rereading books? Are there any books you reread based on seasons, moods, or tradition? Let me know in the comments below!
