Reread favorite books
I just finished rereading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Earlier in the summer I reread the third book in the Chronicles of Narnia series The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I decided to reread both of these books because of their up-coming movies. Both books are magical and I was surprised how much I had forgotten since I last read them each. The movie for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1 comes out Nov. 18th. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be out December 10th. I recommend rereading (or reading) them before the movies come out.
PS-If you haven't read the Chronicles of Narnia yet I suggest that you read them in the order that C.S. Lewis wrote them, not the order that the publisher presents them. 1. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; 2. Prince Caspian; 3. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; 4. The Silver Chair; 5. A Horse and His Boy; 6. The Magician's Nephew (prequel); 7. The Last Battle. So far this is the same order as the movies.
What books have your reread lately? What do you like about rereads?

I rarely re-read books, but when I do, it's because of the beautiful language or the way they make me feel. (comfort reading)ReplyDelete
Sometimes it backfires rereading books you love. I did that with Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier. I loved it when I read it back in college but the reread revealed it as not the wonder book I remembered. I do have to reread Jane Austen books and Narnia book, however, and they are always good.ReplyDelete
