I love re-reading! Right now I'm listening to Shiver, which I've read before in the normal way. But here are some of my favorite re-reads, books I've read many, many times but haven't gotten bored with yet.

Sunshine by Robin McKinley
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Pegasus in Space by Anne McCaffrey
Medalon by Jennifer Fallon
Welcome to the Ark by Stephanie S. Tolan
The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay

The theme song I chose for my current read, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, is "Running Up That Hill" as covered by Placebo. In some ways it works really well and in other ways it doesn't really work at all, but I think the mood of the song sort of fits the mood of the book, which is what I was looking for.

I don't know why the video is upside down, but it's a good song!


  1. 3 books?! I am so impressed! Keep up the good work and your post just reminded me that I need some dinner too :)

  2. How in the heck do you read so fast?! Sounds like you're having a great Read-a-Thon. Hope you keep it up!

  3. Wow, you're doing awesome!

    I ended up going to bed for a while then got up for the mini challenge that I'm hosting...and I'm probably going back to bed soon.

  4. Wow I only just managed to read The Immortal Rules in 10 hours (I wasn't in the best state yesterday though!). Keep up the good work!


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
