I love to re-read books. I think you can get even more out of reading a book the second (or third… or fourth!) time around. However, I have noticed though that since I started up my blog I have barely re-read any books at all. I always feel the push to read new books and don’t seem to get any time to re-read any of my favourites.
Well, no more! I am determined to get some serious re-reading done in 2015 so when I saw this particular challenge (hosted by Hannah @ So Obsessed With and Kelly @ Belle of the Literati) I knew I had to sign up for it.
This challenge is really simple. The goal is to re-read some books. All you need to do is write a post about joining The 2015 Re-Read Challenge on your blog. In the post, include the banner, a link back to the sign-up page, the number of books you’d like to re-read and list some books you’re hoping to re-read for the challenge.
In the first week of each month, there will be a re-read recap on Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With that includes a linky that will be open all month. All you have to do is write a post detailing what you re-read the last month, and add the direct link to the linky to be entered in the giveaways.
If you write any re-read reviews (it’s totally optional!), add those to the monthly linky for additional entries (one per post) in the giveaways.
You can highlight your re-reads with a re-read review, including:
WHEN I First Read
WHAT I Remember
WHY I Wanted to Re-Read
HOW I Felt After Re-Reading
WOULD I Re-Read Again
This can then be added to the monthly re-read recap post. Tweet with the hashtag #ReRead2015.
I think I would like to challenge myself to re-reading at least 10 books this year (I may read more if I have time).
Some of the books I would like to re-read are:
- Melusine, The Virtu, The Mirador, and Corambis by Sarah Monette
- Warchild, Burndive, and Cagebird by Karin Lowachee
- Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
- Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
- To Serve Them All My Days by R.F. Delderfield
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
- Where I End and You Begin by Andra Brynn
- Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb
- Finnikin of the Rock, Froi of the Exiles, and Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta
I know that’s more than 10 books but I’m hoping to get to all of these at some point this year!
bye for now!
