Reread Lately #1

Just brief thoughts on books I’ve read for the second (or third or fourth…) time.

“Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.

It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy…” 

This was the second time I’ve read Meant to Be, and I found it to be just as funny and heartwarming as I remembered. The romance is adorable and I love the setting!

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour amyrogerepicdetour

Morgan Matson

“The road home may be unfamiliar – especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory – but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.”

I thought I’d read this at least one other time, but if I did I forgot to change it on Goodreads. Either way, I fell in love with this book all over again, and possibly, even more than the last time. I especially appreciated all of the supporting characters so much more this time around, and apparently, I loved Roger more (did not remember this but I guess we had a rough start).

As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.” 

This is the only book I reread recently that I feel like I didn’t love quite as much. I remembered loving this book when I read it, but it didn’t quite capture me so much this time. It was still good, but maybe I’d built it up too much in my memory.

  1. It is great to go back and give old books another chance to wow you. Sometimes you find that you liked them even more than before or sadly that you didn’t click with them the second time around. I think a lot of it has to do with the mindset we are in when we read books for the first time and the reread. We could have been at a point in our lives where the story hit home the first time but maybe you are over that point of your life a few years later and the story just doesn’t end up meaning as much. I wish I had more time for re-reads.

    • I definitely agree. I think our opinion is hugely affected by the point we are at in our lives.
      I am trying hard to make time to reread some of my favorites, but it can be difficult when there’s so many awesome new books coming out!
