I have yet to get in on the ground floor of a long-running series. It was just a few weeks ago that I discovered I’ve only been reading UF for around seven years, so maybe in another ten years . . . I’ll still have the same answer. *snickers*
I can’t help it. I’m a detailed oriented person, and after a year (or LESS), the details begin to fade. I used to reread a series every time a new installment came out—series that only put out one new book per year, anyway. But I don’t have time to do that anymore. Now, unless I get a wild hair and just want to reread a series, b/c it’s been awhile, I typically don’t until it’s about to end . . . but right before that final installment . . . you’d better believe it.
There is a queen of rereads . . . and I am that queen.
Don’t get mad, you can be queen too. B/c I said so, that’s why.
Anyway, I know that I’m a minority. Not in the wanting a refresh, but in the actually doing it. Like right now with The Hollows. There’s no way I could keep track of all the people who have told me they wish they had time for a reread before The Witch With No Name comes out (in TWO WEEKS!!).
The difference is I make time. It’s like a compulsion.
I make time, or I don’t read it. I still haven’t read the last book in Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series. And I won’t until I can reread the previous books. *shrugs* That’s just how I roll.
But what about you?
Do You Re-read Your Favorite Long-Running Series Before the Last Book Comes Out?
SIDE NOTE: Again, I’ve been absent for the last few days, and I’ll continue to be absent until Tuesday, b/c Tabitha from Not Yet Read and I are going to DRAGON CON. I can’t wait to tell you all about it when I get back!
My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.
