The thing is, I just have so many other books to get to. I mean, have you seen my TBR shelf? It's overflowing. Literally. Like, I cannot contain the amount of books I still have to read.
And I do like reading new books. I don't feel like it's out of some sense of obligation that I read the books on my TBR. I genuinely want to get to them. I've just never been much of a rereader as far as my old favorites go. But there have been some books I have recently missed and wanted to revisit.
I haven't picked up my copies of Mediator in a long time, and I'm really wanting to reignite my love for Jesse deSilva. I have the old paperback copies of these, and my friends and I passed them around to read, so they're full of little penciled in notes to each other and little heart doodles next to certain passages and underlinings of great passages. I love them so much because they are worn and beat up and have so many great memories, but I also love them because they were some of my favorite books to read.
Another one I want to pick up again is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It's one of my favorites, and I've only read it once. It's a haunting mystery story-within-a-story puzzle. And there's so much going on in it, and I was shocked by the beauty and surprise at the end, and I want to reread because I feel like it will give me a whole new perspective on the story from the beginning and I may notice things I hadn't before.
My big question is do you take the time to revisit favorites? Or are you like me and just read them once? Should I try rereading? I'm nervous I'm not going to like them as much as I remembered.
