As it’s the start of the month of the readathon, I wanted to choose my TBR to hit as many challenges as possible. I have to admit though, I am not often a rereader, so it will be interesting to see how well I do, particularly considering the choices I went with.
Firedrake by Richard Knaak meets two of the challenges. It is both an old favorite and the book that got me into the fantasy genre. I’m a little nervous about rereading it. I have actually toyed with doing a series of posts on the entire Dragonrealm series, but I worry that it will taint my memories. I hope I love it as much as I did then.
I have said many times before how much I dislike the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. However, for the sake of this readathon, I’ll give it a second chance. Just know that it may be the last book I attempt to get to that week.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is a very popular book and with good reason. It is one of my new favorites which helped me transition from Gaiman’s books into Pratchett’s Discworld series.
A very underrated book (as far as people who have read and rated it) is a play I fell in love with in college called The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh. It’s very short, and I am excited to refresh my thoughts on it.
In my inaugural post for my Novel Nostalgia series, I talked about Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. I remember being swept away into this scary setting I hadn’t even considered as a child. I would love to see if it is worth getting my son to read soon.
I hope you are joining us for the ReRead-A-Thon. I would love for you to share your TBR in the comments below. And don’t forget to check out the Twitter account and come back here on March 14th for my giveaway!
