The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: books I reread or would like to reread.
I missed last week’s post for a variety of reasons, so I wanted to start out with a couple of my celebrity crushes before I move on to this week’s topic. Why? Because we can all need a little pretty in our lives.
I’m going to start out with my favorite TV show right now: Evil. IMDB says this about the show: A skeptical female clinical psychologist joins a priest-in-training and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possession, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there’s a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work. Having been studying to be a psychologist at one point in my life, this sucked me right into the show. And then you have Kristen, played by Katja Herbers.
She’s just so cute and tiny and yet… she’s one heck of an opponent. I would not want to go up against a mom raising four girls while her husband is off… somewhere… and battling demon-like entities during work hours.
Next is my Peloton boo, Cody Rigsby. He’s not just adorable and fit, but such an inspiration. His constant reminders to love myself and ‘you do you, boo’ keep me going on a daily basis.
See? That’s the kind of inspiration I need in my life. Haha.
Now, on to this week’s topic: books I like to reread or would like to reread.
As a rule, I don’t reread books unless it’s been some time since the last one came out and I need a refresh. Or, there’s a movie about to be released and it was 1846 when I originally read the novel. It’s just not something I enjoy doing, mainly because there are so many other books out there waiting for me.
That said, every few years, I make a point to reread my all-time favorite book: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It never fails to make me laugh and lift my spirits. My last re-read was actually in audio and I don’t know if it was Stephen Fry’s deadpan, posh British voice that did me in or if it had simply been too long since I’d visited Arthur, Ford, Trillian, and Zaphod, but whatever it was, I’d never laughed harder in my life.
There are two series I’m thinking about rereading, however. One is Debra Webb’s Faces of Evil series. I randomly picked these books up to review and fell in love. Jess, Dan, the whole crew… plus Eric Spears. I’d never been so in love with the bad guy as I was with the Player. Note to self: seek help.
The other series is Meg Gardiner’s UNSUB series. I inhaled the first two books in the series and the third comes out on the 18th of this month. I really loved the first two books, although the second didn’t have enough of her boyfriend, Sean. I’m way too excited for next Tuesday. Hah!
So, are you a re-reader or are you more like me?
