Earlier this year, I wrote a post called In 2014: I Want More & Less. The very first thing on my "More" list? Re-reading. Growing up, I used to re-read all the time. I love the comfort of returning to an old favorite or the opportunity to give a book another shot to wow you. Whether I discover new things about myself or the book, I've never regretted re-reading. Sometimes I'll like a book less than I did the first time, but usually I end up loving it even more. There's something so special about reading a book all over again!
The only downside to blogging is that I'm constantly adding new books to my TBR and feeling like I'll never have enough time to read everything I want. And that often means I don't let myself re-read the books that are calling my name! I've done okay this year - approximately 20 of the 154 books I've read so far this year are re-reads - but I still wish that number was higher. So, I couldn't resist when Kelly approached me a few months ago with the idea of hosting a challenge together. Her idea was just too perfect!
