My favorite books are the ones I love reading again and again. I have a poor memory too, so I tend to forget names of characters and important things that happen, even in the books I love. There are also books that I’ve read half or or maybe a quarter of, but I never got around to finishing.
These are among the reasons why I’m excited to do the The Re-Read Challenge this 2016. My goal is to re-read at least 10 books this year.
Why only 10?
Firstly, I’m already overbooked with a mountainous to-read list as it is, excluding short story anthologies, comics, and magazines.
And don’t even get me started on my to-watch list. And if Netflix is as good as I’ve been dreaming it would be—it just launched in the Philippines today—I see my to-watch list expanding exponentially.
Plus, I also listen to a number of podcasts, including Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men. I also watch plenty of vlogs and music video covers on YouTube.
I’ve also joined the Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge for 2016.
My Tentative Re-Reading List:
- It by Stephen King
- Sabriel (Abhorsen Trilogy, Book 1) by Garth Nix
- Lirael (Abhorsen Trilogy, Book 2) by Garth Nix
- Abhorsen (Abhorsen Trilogy, Book 3) by Garth Nix
- S by Doug Dorst and J.J. Abrams
- Room by Emma Donoghue
- Quiet by Susan Cain
I’m already in the middle of re-reading Stephen King’s It. I’m a hundred or so pages away from the part where I’ve kept stopping for over a decade now (I don’t know why I keep stopping. The novel’s great. I blame Pennywise the Clown!).
I feel like once I conquer reading It, I can achieve all my reading goals for 2016.
