Follow Friday and Happy Fall!

So this is my first time participating in one of the many memes hosted by other blogs! I'm pretty excited about it, and I plan to start participating in more, since they look like a lot of fun and a great way to come across other blogs and more books. Today is Feature and Follow Friday, hosted by both Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. If you're not already participating, stop by one of their blogs and check out how to join in!

The FF Question for today is:

Do you have a favourite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep revisiting it.

I'd have to say there are really only two series that I have definitely read completely and multiple times: Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia. I love to read fantasy, and I always find myself wanting to step into the worlds that Rowling and Lewis created. The only other books I have that I have read multiple times are not part of a series, but they would be the novels of Jane Austen, Watership Down by Richard Adams and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I have also read Le Petit Prince more than a few times, and have a small (but slowly growing) collection of that book in different translations.

For the most part, though, I have so many books on my shelves that I haven't yet read that I try not to re-read other books too often.


  1. Nice choices! I never did read all the HP books, just the last 3.

  2. I picked HP too. To find out which books I return to and to follow me back (I’m following you now from Follow Friday) check out My Follow Friday post

  3. I've reread Harry Potter too, but now there's just too many books out there to keep rereading the same ones! Great answer :)

    Here's my FF!

  4. New follower!

    Oh, yes, Harry Potter for sure :)

    Here's mine:

  5. You know, I keep trying to read the Chronicles of Narnia and not managing to do it. I loved the movies, and I have this massive tomb that is a collection of all the books, but I can't seem to read them.

    Of course - Harry Potter practically demands to be reread with all the hints dropped that you don't see until a reread! :)


  6. Hi & Happy Friday!

    Great choices :) I am yet to read the HP series.

    Thank-you for stopping by my blog earlier, I am following your back -

    Have a great weekend..

  7. Happy Follow Friday!

    I hope you will stop by and check out our twitter event going on today!


  8. Hopping through. I love Watership Down. One of my favorites. I've always meant to re-read it.

  9. Jane Austen's books really are great to read over and over. My copies of her books are all so torn up from all the use they've seen.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF! Have a great weekend!

  10. Thanks for stopping by!

    I actually forgot about the Austen books -- I've read pretty much everything she's read about a bajillion times, and have the movie interpretations memorized (especially Pride & Prejudice *happy sigh*)

    Following back!

  12. Two very good choices! I have read HP through only once, but my oldest daughter has read them through multiple times.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower for you!

  13. Thank for hopping by! Harry Potter has shown up on so many lists (including my own) as a regular reread!

  14. I can't believe I haven't read Harry Potter OR Narnia yet! I've heard they're both amazing and I'm a big fan of fantasy too, but I don't know. Maybe I'm worried I won't like them as much as everyone else? I haven't even seen any of the movies before, which is sad! x)

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Colleen! I'm definitely following you back!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  15. I'm the same way, I have so many other books to read that I tend not to re-read books...I'll make an occasional exception for Harry Potter though, of course lol. Plus, I'm a slow reader, so if I spent time re-reading all the books I would like to, I'd probably never have time to read anything new!

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm now your newest follower!

  17. Hi there, new follower here, returning the follow! I have to agree with you, Harry Potter and Narnia are both great re-reads! :)
