Booking Through Thursday - Replay

This week's BTT question is:

Have you ever finished a book and loved it so much you went right back and started re-reading it again?
(And obviously, if so, we want titles!)

My initial thought upon reading this question was no.  Then I remembered that I have indeed finished a book just to flip back to the beginning and start it again.  The book is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by the incomparable J.K. Rowling.  Interestingly, this (book 6) is my favorite in the Harry Potter series.  And while I've read the series more than once - it is the only book that I just had to immediately read again.

How abou you? Are there any books that you have loved so much you read it or them right after finishing it once?

  1. Hmm, can't say I have. I usually re-read my favourites every 2 or 3 years. What I do sometimes is flip through a few pages to check up on things that would tie into the ending, but I've not yet done a complete re-read back to back

  2. I was going to say no, not a back to back re-read, but I'd be wrong.

    Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. After dying for over a year after one of the biggest cliffhanger endings, I gobbled Shadowfever up and started reading it again the very next day. (Now in hindsight, I think that series could have been done very well in 3 or 4 books. Until she wrote Shadowfever she had never gone over 100K for a book so maybe that was part of the 5 book deal.)

    I think I did the same thing with the last Harry Potter book. I'd taken the wee beasties to a bookstore's party for the release and ended up reading it all night. Then I HAD to go back a read it slower because I knew I'd missed stuff, LOL

    For the most part I'm like Claire, and re-read favorites every few years, but even then my re-read list gets smaller every year.

    What a fantastic question! I'm going to be popping back in for other people's answers :)

  3. I'm pretty sure my answer to this is no. But I could be a liar. I've forgotten if I am though ;)
