The Guardian newspaper recently ran a series about the books some authors reread every year (or, in some cases, every three years.) There are some books that I reread every year. As I mentioned on this blog, I usually read Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie on April Fools’ Day. I follow this tradition because the book is one of my favorite romantic comedies.
But there are some books that I reread more than once a year. Why? Sometimes I want to relive the magic, other times I want the comfort of reading something I know I’m going to like. Often I just want to read a passage that I thought was exceptionally good.
For example, I read The Sicilian’s Virgin Bride by Sarah Morgan so frequently that I had to get another copy. One of the reasons I read this book a lot is because I like to follow the heroine’s transformation. (I love transformation and makeover stories!!) And even though I promise myself I’ll only read the opening scene, or when Francesca confronts Rocco at the nightclub, I usually wind up reading the rest of the story.
