Question – Immediate Re-Reads. Have You Ever Been Compelled To Do This?
A couple of weeks ago I asked about re-reading a book. Most of you said that yes, you absolutely re-read books either in time for a new release or when feeling particularly blah. But what about re-reading the moment you close the book? Have you ever felt the need to crack it back open right after you close it to read it all over again?
I have, quite a few times, immediately gone back and re-read certain scenes or passages. In fact, there is one scene that breaks me in the upcoming Secret McQueen book by Sierra Dean. That one scene, I re-read at least 3 times once finished the book. (And once you read it too, you’ll totally understand why ;)) I wanted to re-read Dreamfever right after finishing it to see if I missed some clue about who ‘Mac lost’ at the very end of the book but retrained myself knowing that KMM would never let something like that slip.
The only book I remember re-reading from start to finish right after I was finished with it was Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis. Yes, my feel-good go-to book. I did re-read that one immediately after finishing it. But other than that, I am mostly someone who re-reads scenes before moving on to a new book.
What about you? Have you ever been compelled to re-read a book immediately after finishing it?
