Re-Reading (Part 3)

By on October 22, 2011

As much as I wanted to take some beloved favorites to re-read for this read-a-thon, I had too many novels waiting to be read to do so. I’m still tempted to pick up The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis, since I’ve been trying to revisit Narnia lately, or the Lord of the Rings trilogy. (I think I’ll do that entire set for the April read-a-thon, now that I think about it.)

Some of my other favorite re-reads would be The Seer and the Sword by Victoria Hanley, and one that I’ve read a thousand times, The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle. Don’t ask me why, but I read my little paperback copy so many times back in secondary school that the thing just fell apart. Continuing with the YA/nostalgia theme, I think I’d also pick up The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, by Avi.

Other novels I love to re-read: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, and, of course, anything by Ted Dekker. Well now, wait, I’m lying. I did “re-read” The Bride Collector this morning, but since I’d never heard the audiobook version, it felt new. Anyhow.

Finished my third book, but it was one I’d set down halfway through it a long time ago… Looking for the King: An Inklings Novel by David C. Downing. It was an Indiana Jones-ish mystery, complete with relic-hunting Nazis and Arthurian legend, even a fedora, but no bullwhips and more Oxford professors. A lot of the writing felt very… scholarly and expository. It definitely wasn’t so emotional as my first read today. But getting to “listen in” on an Inklings meeting with some of my favorite authors come to life on the page was a treat. And I was an English major, so I sort of like the stuffy, intellectual sort of writing sometimes.

Good luck to everyone else!
