Do you ever re-read any books? If there're some in particular you keep returning to, what is it about them that keeps drawing you back?

I constantly re-read my books. My husband makes fun of me, actually, since I always have my nose buried in a book and you can bet a decent wage on it being something I've read already.

I keep going back to the Mercy Thompson Novels by Patricia Briggs. I like her take on the paranormal universe. Not to mention, I can't think of a single series or movie or television show that features a skinwalker as the main character. I also tend to re-read the Dark Hunter novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon because it not only feeds my paranormal romance addiction but also my need for some serious smut. The other book I am constantly re-reading is The Descent by Jeff Long. I couldn't pinpoint a single thing that drags my attention to this book three to four times a year. It's just... intriguing.

I reread a few really regularly (once a year or so).  Mostly they're books I discovered in college, really loved (like, it was the highlight of taking that lit class)

Watership Down
Brave New World
Idylls of the Kings
The Wee Free Men/Hat Full of Sky
"The Summoning" series by Robin Owens
The Phantom Tollbooth (this has been my favorite book since I was 12)

I really had to reread Nation (Terry Pratchett) twice in a row.  It was just that good.


It was, and I was surprised how much I enjoyed a more serious non-Discworld setting and, unusually, a male protagonist. Does! Not! Happen!  Cheesy

If you haven't read Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, you should give it a shot. There's nothing quite like reading about the end of the world.

Oh gods, I LOVED that novel.  Laughed myself sick, I did.

I *still* haven't read it. And I have a copy of his newest, Unseen Academicals, on my bookshelf too. Guh. Need to read.  Tongue
