It’s been a while since my last discussion post, but here it is!
Do you ever think about a series that you really love and imagine yourself re reading the first book again just because you love that series so much and it gives you such nostalgic feelings???
This is definitely true for me with series such as Harry Potter, Twilight and the Mortal Instruments.
More recently, I thought to myself that I would like to re read the first Outlander book and the mere thought of going through that amazing experience again had me feeling so warm and fluffy about my babes Claire and Jamie.
Diving back into a world that I know I freaking loved makes me excited and returning feels like I’ve taken an extended vacation that I’ve just returned from.
The characters are fresh and new yet old.
I know a lot of people, most of them non book lovers, say that what’s the point of re reading books? Sometimes I re read books to catch up on what happened before the next book, such as Red Rising in which I had to re read Red Rising and Golden Son to actually know what was going on in Morning Star.
But other times, I re-read just for that nostalgic feeling. This doesn’t happen often for me though, and I feel like I want to re read more books, but why should I when there are new books waiting?
Whatever the case may be, I know that a re read of Outlander is in order this summer, as well as a binge watch of the second season.
I remember that before I got a goodreads account I used to always re read books, but now that I have a challenge set, I want to finish it reading new books.
Before BookCon last year, I even re read Throne of Glass right before I got it signed by Sarah J. Maas.
The point is, reading books again and experiencing that world again always feels both new and old.
What are your thoughts on re reading books? Do you experience the same nostalgia?
