Reading old novels again and again is a kind of comfort, isn't it?
We need not guess the story, so there's no tension involved.
We can read it at our own pace, so we need not stay up all night just to know the end.
The characters feel familiar, so it is like remembering old times and talking to old friends.
We tend to concentrate more on each word, so there's a good chance we'll add a new word to our vocab.
Sometimes I miss the depth of meaning of some sentences in a hurry to finish the book, which I understand in one of the rereads.
Some books I reread all the time:
Harry potter series ( I know it's childish of me to read them even now, but I can't help it! Those are the books I first fell in love with as a kid. It's like when you are flipping the channels you suddenly see Tom and Jerry and stop there, just to enjoy it one more time even though it appears childish )
To kill a mocking bird ( It's such a comfort read. Changes your mood when you are low)
Wuthering heights ( It's supposed to be a classic love story, but I don't find love in it. However, there's something in the book that makes me reread it again and again )
Shopaholic series ( It's a chick lit series, but it uplifts my mood instantly )
Bridget Jones diary ( Another chick lit. But the humor is so natural that I tend to laugh out loud everytime I read it )
Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry finn ( Another set of children books, but I love them )
Great Expectations ( A long read, but a good read )
The time traveler's wife ( A sweet love story )
All Sherlock Holmes novels ( I simply love the character of Holmes )
A lot of books get added to the list for I tend to reread books a lot. So, what are your favorites?
