Musing Mondays - Rereading

If you'd like to play along on Musing Mondays, just click the button above to join in.

This week’s musing asks…

Have you ever reread a book and found that your opinion changed?

My answer...

Basically, I don't re-read books. I just don't have enough time with my huge TBR of books I haven't even read once yet. So, I'm going to answer this question in a different way - instead of focusing on a specific book, I'll focus on a genre.

I used to love sweet romances and could read a steady diet of them. These days, when I've tried, it would take me a long time to get through one. I'm being very general here but there are exceptions to this. These days I need my romances mixed with suspense.

  1. totally agree...too many book waiting for me. rarely, very, very rarely would I ever reread a book.

  2. Me too! Not enough time it seems to read the unread, never mind the already read.

  3. I am not a re-reader of books either, like Caite, and Kaye I have to many books waiting to be read, no time for rereading.

  4. I don't reread a lot of books, but out of curiosity, I have done so with a few. And definitely, my tastes have changed. Sort of like our taste buds do with time.


  5. Oh yes, my changes have also changed :)

  6. I do re-read but have not changed my opinion after re-reading...

    Here is my post.

  7. It's difficult to find enough time to read, much less to re-read! But I do think I get more from the books I read, or occasionally re-read--now that I'm older.

  8. I used to re-read but like you I just do not have the time these days

  9. I've reread a few books that I skimmed through at first and then enjoyed on closer reading. Not many, but at least a couple.

  10. I do reread favorite books, and so far have not been disappointed. My last re-read was Misery by SK and I loved it even more the second time around.
