Tell Me Something Tuesday: Rereading

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About  and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.

I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…

Do you reread? Are you ever tempted to change your ratings when you do?

Absolutely! I didn’t used to do much rereading – it was basically just my annual reread of Pride & Prejudice. But in recent years I’ve done more and more rereading. Some have been because I wanted to continue a series, but it’s been a while and I need a reminder. But especially in 2020, rereads became about comfort. I picked up old favorites to revisit favorite places and characters. Their was comfort and safety in the familiar.

As for changing ratings, I don’t think my view really changes. When I’m rereading it’s generally books I loved and still love. So no, I can’t think of a time that I’ve changed my rating.

What about you? Do you reread? And do your ratings change if you do reread?

Next week’s topic: Share some of your favorite books written by POC authors.

  1. I reread a decent amount and like you it’s usually comfort reading though I’m always in the middle of an Agatha Christie reread! I have changed the rating but not very often because usually my opinion is the same.

  2. I don’t reread a lot but when I do I am like you and it’s favorite books and so my rating on them don’t really change. 🙂 Right now I really want to reread Discovery of Witches and I just read that trilogy all the way through last summer…lol.

  3. I haven’t re-read much, but with audios, that is changing and I love revisiting books I read some time ago and getting a fresh slant with the audio facet. Mostly, my rating stays the same, but sometimes it’s higher because I love what the audio narrator brings to the table, too.

  4. I have read Pride and Prejudice a few times and it’s always fun to reread.

    I wasn’t able to get much books in 2020 so I reread a lot as well. Rereading books is really a comfort & safety in the familiar.

    Have a lovely day.

  5. I’ve definitely changed my ratings after rereading before! I normally reread with audiobooks, so sometimes that affects my rating. Or it’s a series that I read a million years ago and now feel differently about, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.
