They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Long distance relationships are solid proof of this. So in book terms, is it better to read a book once and love it instead of reading it over and over until you hate it?
Re reading. We’ve all done a lot of it. Personally, I mostly re-read contemporaries because the ease of reading them makes me want to go back to them again and again. I’m also a partial re-reading which means I only go back to certain scenes or quotes but I know a lot of people just do a full re-read. Totally in awe of you if you do 😀
YES! Re-reading! | FOR THE FEELS!!
- I’m one of those people who sometimes rush through books because I’m always short on time. This means that I miss a lot of things in the first read so going through it again makes everything a bit more clearer.
- It always makes for a good re-read when the same feels come at you! Reading about your OTP, certain scenes… all the feels come rushing back.
- Sometimes it makes you like the book a bit more. Maybe you were kind of on the fence about it before but then BAM it’s suddenly just the best thing ever written.
Ugh, re-reading | It just makes the book worse.
- I’m not going to lie but not many YA books are really well written. I have a simple mind so it doesn’t take much to entertain me! However, when I re-read a book, the flaws pop out more because I’m not under the “first read” glasses.
- It wastes so much time where you could read a new book. TBR lists just keep getting longer and longer so honestly reading a book you’ve already read is just such a waste of good reading time.
- You can only read a book so many times before you get bored of it. It’s just like if you watched only one episode of a show everyday for the next 10 years, you would be so sick of it.
Now it’s your turn. What do you think about re-reading? Are you a partial re-reader or a full re-reader? If you do re-read, why do you?
