Re-Readathon!


I don't know about y'all, but I love re-reading my favorite books...yet never feel like I have the time to spare. Lucky, Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner came to the rescue. She's hosting an informal re-readathon this weekend, and I've been looking forward to it for weeks now. I really don't have a set goal for number of books or pages read. I just want to relax and relive my childhood and teen favorites.

My Unrealistically Long List of Re-Reads

Looking for Alaska - John Green
The Giver - Lois Lowry
Sideways Stories from Wayside School - Louis Sachar
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour -Morgan Matson
Alice in Lace - Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (I've been reading this series for over 10 years now!) 
The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins 
A Great and Terrible Beauty - Libba Bray 
The Nanny Diaries - Emma McLaughlin
I know that I probably won't even make it through half of these books, but I'm going to give it my best shot! I'll be updating this post periodically throughout the weekend, so if you're interested in my progress feel free to check back.

Progress

  1. What a great stack of books! I recently read Looking for Alaska for the first time and enjoyed it so much. The Giver and Wayside School were two of my favorite books growing up. Happy reading!

  2. Vasily - I actually reread Wayside School yesterday. it was just as wacky as I remembered :)

    My copies of The Giver and Looking for Alaska have been read so many times that they're beginning to look pretty worn and loved.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I LOVE re-reading too! I've been re-reading all my favorite books during October and November of this year. I couldn't believe I've spent two months re-reading. All my new books are still sitting happily on my shelf unread. Re-reading will be part of my next year's reading challenge, hosted by myself. Another funny thing is I've re-read a book about eight times in one year. Crazy, right? Oh well...

    Thank you for sharing!

  4. Sam - Wow, that must be one heck of a book! I have some books (The Giver & Harry Potter) that have been read so many times that they are falling apart :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
