It’s pretty rare that I don’t have a new book to read. Being flat broke and struggling to pay the bills, though, I’ve found myself cut off. (The last “new” book I read was Jodi Picoult’s Handle With Care while I was in the hospital, which was the first book of hers I’ve ever read. It was amazing, and now I’m hooked! The rest of the books they had in their “library” were awful. I tried, you guys. I really did. But there are only so many times you can start reading really shitty romances before you completely give up.)
Wow. I got way off track. Anyway!
That hasn’t stopped me from binge-reading the books I already have. In the last few weeks, I’ve re-read everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer novelizations to Joe Meno’s Hairstyles of the Damned (which, by the way, is a superb YA novel). Looking at my shelves earlier today, I happened to catch sight of some children’s/YA books that I’ve read at least a hundred times. One of those is Ella Enchanted. I hadn’t read it in years, so wasn’t sure if I’d still like it. (Especially since the movie really sucked. Let’s not get me started, okay?) But I cracked it open early this afternoon and was instantly spellbound, just like old times.
It really is a great book.
Which books can you read over and over again? Are there any from your childhood that you still love? Leave me a comment and let me know!
