Returns

This post is linked with: Booking Through, Thursday 13 


What book(s) do you find yourself going back to? Beloved children’s classics? Favorites from college? Something that touched you and just makes you long to visit?

(Because, doesn’t everybody have at least one book they would like to curl up with, even if they don’t make a habit of rereading books? Even if they maybe don’t even have the time to visit and just think back longingly?)

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. JK Rowling's Harry Potter 5 and 7. Stephenie Meyer's Twilight 2 and 4 - re-read all twice.

Mary Cicely Barker's The Everyday Handbook for Magical Mothers. I LOVE FAIRIES. The illustrations on my copy take me to a world I love visiting again and again.

Lately I've been scouring second-hand bookshops for Clue in the Crumbling Wall of the Nancy Drew series. I've been wishing to find an old copy, not interested in its e-form, no thanks. I want the book preferably yellowed with age, with the paper gone brittle through the years. Since I could not find it I bought Carolyn Keene's The Hidden Staircase which I reckon would do for now.

  1. I loved Nancy Drew...a few years ago, I bought the first three books. For that day when I could reread....but they didn't make my list. Here's MY BTT POST

  2. I've seen Pride and Prejudice cropping up on a couple of these lists. Harry Potter is one I've reread the most. I've been known to bypass the new and shiny books on my TBR just to read it again. Love that series!

  4. I've re-read Twilight, each one before each movie came out to refresh my memory. I re-read HP all the time! Great list!

  5. I re-read books more often as a kid than I do now. A few I remember reading multiple times include: Mandy by Julie (Andrews) Edwards, Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink, The Silver Crown by Robert C. O'Brien, and Witch of the Glens by Sally Watson -- I would LOVE to find a copy of the latter, but NOT at the prices I've seen for it. I was also a huge fan of the Trixie Belden series and re-read many of those, as well as some of the books by Lois Duncan, especially A Gift of Magic. Spring walk

  6. I generally don't reread books but I have reread several of the Anne of Green Gables books. I loved those when I was growing up. I've read 5 of the books in your list above. There are so many books it is hard to read them all.
