read-a-thon mini-challenge :: re-reading
23 October 2011 2 Comments
Jessica, over at the bluestocking society, has offered up a terrific mini-challenge for these late evening hours, and I am totally up for it!
List your favorite re-reads of all time, those books that you can go to time and again for comfort and escape.
If you’ve read any of the expository pages of this blog, you’ll surely be able to guess the titles on my list…
The Lord of the Rings, in which I cannot help but hear the movie actors’ voices speaking their respective characters’ dialogue (which always makes me happy)
The Chronicles of Narnia, for its nostalgic way of sending me back to childhood
The Great Gatsby, and the way Robert Redford fills my mind as I read of the sad, lonely Mr. Gatsby
Love Finds You in Hershey, Pennsylvania, written by my best good friend, Cerella D. Sechrist, so it always makes me think of her
The Thursday Next series, which makes me laugh and laugh and then sparks my imagination in the most extraordinary ways
Girl With A Pearl Earring, for its astounding visual-verbal beauty
After today, I’m certain that The Hunger Games trilogy will become another fixture on this list!
