I feel like some raging fan screaming at a rock concert. I am so over-the-top excited to read this book. I haven't felt this excited since the release of HP 7, which, yes, I waited in line at midnight to get. I read that book the very night I bought it. And then again two days later b/c I thought I might've missed some important detail. I should be embarrassed, I guess, but I'm not. It is EXTREMELY rare for me to read a book more than once. And even more rare for me to read a book more than twice. I have read all HP's at least 4 times. I've read Hunger Games and Catching Fire both twice, and no doubt will re-read them again. I'm not sure what about books conjures this sort of excitement. I will likely have the book read in a few days and will post my opinion. I would love to know yours. I read often, but will rarely post my opinions. Mainly because I am a tough critic and authors have enough of those out there. As writers, I feel if it isn't positive, then follow mom's trusty rule.
My list of re-reads is short, but I thought in celebration of Mockingjay - which I will no doubt read several times - it would be good to discuss the books that have impacted us or resonated with us enough to re-read over and over and over.
(I'm starting from when I was young)
1. A Wrinkle in Time
2. The Bridge to Terabithia
3. Charlotte's Web
4. Pride and Prejudice (really most Austen)
5. The Da Vinci Code - don't blast me, you know it's a good book!
6. All Harry Potters - numerous times
7. The Lord of the Rings
8. A Christmas Carol
9. Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy
10. The Shining
There are others, of course, but these are the ones that come to mind. What about you? Have you read the HG's books more than once?
