Three Reasons to Go Back and Reread Books

Three Reasons to Go Back and Reread Books

Posted February 12, 2021 in Bookish Things // 0 Comments

As a blogger, sometimes I feel guilty about rereading books.  There are so many books out there that I should be reading, and because I blog, those are all books I could be promoting.  As it stands, my TBR is over 1200 books – enough to keep me busy reading for twelve years at my pace, and that’s assuming I don’t add anything else to it – highly unlikely. So, with that virtual stack looming over me, sometimes rereading books make me feel guilty.  But it shouldn’t. Today, I want to offer three reasons why rereading books is not only […]

You know, I have a lot of saved tags in my drafts, and they’re all super fun, so I feel like it’s time to do more than one tag a month.  🙂 For my readers in the United States, I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July last week!  We didn’t do anything much (we usually don’t) but it’s always lovely to have a day off!  The only thing I miss about the Fourth of July celebrations in my childhood is the fireworks, but alas, personal fireworks are illegal in the state of Massachusetts, so…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Today’s tag comes from […]

Inconceivable! It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

I love A Princess Bride. The first time I saw it, I was a freshman in high school on vacation with my (obsessed) friend, and I just didn’t get it.  I mean, what’s so great about this story?  Cheesy romance, overacting, I don’t get it. Then I watched it again.  And again.  Then I got it – all that was the point.  Then I read the book, which is super funny, and now I’m a huge fan. Last year, when Em @ The Keystroke Blog posted this tag, I knew I had to steal it.  I couldn’t help myself.  It’s been sitting in my […]

Popular Books That Lived Up to the Hype

Who among us haven’t seen books basically go viral and think “I should read that because everyone else is reading it!”?  While this can be super awesome and really get some great exposure for new books, this can also be a trap.  What if the book is just sort of okay?  What if you’ve been dreaming about this really cool-sounding plot and suddenly the book blows up because “OMG, Balthasar is suuuuuuch a hunk!”  but that’s not what you’re going into the book for and what if the plot is actually terrible and… just… ack! Hyped books can be exciting, and […]
