I admit it. One of the reasons my TBR pile is so freaking high (or, since it’s mostly digital, takes up so many bytes) is my own fault.
Yes, it’s true. I’m a re-reader.
I can’t help it. Once I fall in love with characters, I want to visit them again and again. That’s one of the reasons I love series so much. And one of the reasons I’m addicted to J.D. Robb’s In Death series. With 8 bazillion books in that series, I get to revisit my favorite characters without re-reading. Though, of course, that often doesn’t stop me. Yes, I’ve read the entire series (well, through about book 20) at least twice. You can imagine the time commitment. And, alas, there are only so many hours in the day!
As a writer, my “re-reading” love is reflected in the fact that I have always leaned toward writing books in series. And also as a writer, I’m incredibly flattered when I hear from readers that they read and re-read one of my books because they love the characters so much, like Kate from my Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series that began with Carpe Demon. And especially Nikki and Damien from the Stark Trilogy – which continues on Tuesday with the release of Claim Me!
Winner will be announced on 4/28/13
There's several books/series I have on my "TBR-Again" list :) I have so many on my TBR list, though, that I haven't reread them yet. I have reread some books in a series because of the length of time between books. I keep telling myself I have to stop reading reviews so I stop adding to my list. Of course, I'm now adding Claim Me to my list. Thamk you for a chance to win a copy!
I wish I had time to re-read. I do like series so I can see my favorite character again. I have started listening to audio books at work. And so it doesn't break my concentration too much I have been listening to books I've already read.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I am a re-reader. I love reading new books but sometimes I just want a comfort read, something I know I will enjoy and that will satisfy me. Some of the books I re-read are Bet Me and Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie, the Long, Tall Texans series and The Wedding in White by Diana Palmer, Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard, How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper, Lord of the Air by Carol Gregor, The Westmoreland series by Brenda Jackson, and the Windham series by Grace Burrowes. Wow, I guess I re-read alot.
I do re-read sometimes, but my biggest problem is that I have a HUGE TBR list and I spend a lot of time reading reviews about the "latest" release of a new book in my favorite series. Or, a new release from my favorite author. Once you love a book, you want to read EVERYTHING that author writes from then until forever, right?
I haven't had a chance to re-read anything lately because my TBR list is so backed up, but I will someday go back and re-read the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning because I loved it so much. In the past my top re-read book was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald; it's a classic and it's probably about time for another go at it too :)
I love to reread books. When I've reread some books I've found things in them that I missed the first time I read it. Lots of time when I want to read a book but can't find a new one that interest me I will grab one that I've read and loved to reread.
