Ask me anything
Day 02 - A book that you’ve read more than 3 times
Umm, just one? I have at least one book I’ve read like 50 times, a few I’ve read 30+ times, and hundreds I’ve read 5-20 times.
I read The Andalite Chronicles by K A Applegate 27 times in 9 weeks when I was in year 8, because goddamn I loved that book. It would have been more, but the library wanted the book back seeing as I had extended my loan as long as I could. I bought it a week later and read it again. I’ve read it at least that many times again in the 14 years since. I adored the Animorph world, and this book is still a great story, maybe because it meant so much to me as a teenager, and a bit because it is still a good story, but this is one of my favourite books, and I’m ok with admitting that.
I’m actually a massive fan of the extension books of many worlds, the books that fill in the gaps that the main story doesn’t have time to cover. Building up the backstory of characters and making me love them even more.
Some I’ve read at least 30 times are Mercury Beach by Tessa Duder, The Pastures of the Blue Crane by H F Brinsmead, Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jacklyn Moriaty, Rowan of Rin by Emily Rodda… Most of Diana Wynne Jones’ books. Next tier would hold Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (9 times in the first week puts it there regardless of the 14 years since I first read it) The Song of The Lioness and Circle of Magic series by Tamora Pierce, Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, Wheel of Time (books 1-9 especially) by Robert Jordan, the Artemis Fowl books by Eoin Colfer, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, all of the Trixie Belden Books, The Second Sons Trilogy by Jennifer Fallon.. And I could go on. These are just the ones that I can see while I’m sitting on the couch in my lounge room haha.. I love to re read books, I’m a serial re reader.
