I hope you enjoyed it when I did this hop through August. I thought I’d pick and choose a few further questions whenever I think they’re interesting – but all of October is related to Halloween, which is really not my thing! It’s not big in the UK (or wasn’t until the supermarkets realised what a great opportunity it was to rip people off with some tacky plastic costumes). Enough of my prejudices… here’s today’s question:
What books would you want to read again for the first time?
Following on from a thought I had on series a little while ago, I would like to read Harry Potter now, for the first time. I’d really want to see whether the experience is different when all seven books are out.
It’s such a long time ago that I read Lord of the Rings, I think I’d like to read that now too, for the discovery factor and also to see whether I like it as much as I actually do – as an old friend. I still read LOTR from time to time. It always pleases me.
Having said that, there are a few books I’ve been carrying round in boxes or whatever for years that did seem like I was reading them for the first time when I reread them. Black Beauty and White Fang are just two of those – and I had widely different responses to them. You can check my reviews of these two by clicking on the titles.
What about you?
Now go hopping!
