As I’ve started to do my year-end review of books read, I noticed that I reread a lot of books this year. As you’ll see, this is due in large part to the fact that I have been listening to books on audio that I have previously read.
Persuasion, by Jane Austen
When You Reach Me, by Rebecca Stead
The Thief, by Megan Whalen Turner (Audio)
The Queen of Attolia, by Megan Whalen Turner (Audio)
The King of Attolia, by Megan Whalen Turner (Audio)
Charlotte’s Web, by E.B. White
A Conspiracy of Kings, by Megan Whalen Turner (Audio)
The Road, by Cormac McCarthy
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak (Audio)
The Giver, by Lois Lowry (Audio)
Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh (Audio)
Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry
The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman (Audio)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, by J.K. Rowling (Audio)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J.K. Rowling (Audio)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, by J.K. Rowling (Audio)
Most of these books were favorites to begin with, and the reread only solidified that status. In the case of The Queen’s Thief Series and The Graveyard Book, the reread made me like them a lot more than I did the first time. It makes me want to do even more rereading in 2013, but it’s a delicate balance between rereading and all of the new (and new-to-me) books I want to read.
Which books did you reread this year?
