How many times is it okay to reread a book?
I’m not much of a rereader myself, but in my opinion, if the book is so good that you want to repeat the experience of immersing yourself in the story all over again, there’s really no limit to how many times you can reread it.
Of course, it’s probably not the best idea to pass up other equally great books in favor of rereading the one book over and over again. So as long as you give other books the appreciation they deserve, there’s no set number of times you have to reread a book!
If you could have written one already published book, what would it be?
Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. I read this book for the first time when I was in third grade, and I loved it. I have a thing for complex family dynamics, and the March sisters’ bond was so wholesome and heartwarming to read about. Ms. Alcott’s book is inspiring readers around the world to this day, whether it be in matters of faith, family, or love. I can’t even imagine how amazing it would feel to be the author of such a book.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
There’s… a lot of things I love about blogging, but the one that makes me happiest is definitely connecting with people who enjoy books as much as I do and who appreciate my bookish ramblings.
Are you more of a summer or winter person?
Winter! It’s not like I don’t enjoy a warm, sunny day, but winter’s coziness and cool weather speak to me more than summer’s sweltering weather or mosquitoes.
What is your favourite song at the moment?
I have 60 tracks on my Favorites playlist, so I’ll just go with the song I’m listening to right now as I type this: “My Petersburg” from Anastasia’s Original Broadway Cast Recording. I love this song so much, omg. I don’t even know why. I love it. Derek Klena’s belting is obviously one of the reasons, but goodness, this song (and frankly, the entire Anastasia cast recording) is just so gorgeous.
What is one of your favourite blogs out of those that you follow?
AHHHH THIS ISN’T FAIR. I literally had to go use a number generator to randomly choose a blog from my Reader for this question. And the winner was… (drum roll please) Lauren @ twenty-seven letters! Lauren’s blog is so pretty and I’m in love with her blogging voice!!! Her recent discovery of Rick Riordan actually was a big factor in my decision to start the Percy Jackson series, which I’m sorry to say I have never read. I have the first three books on hold at the library, so thank you Lauren for all your raving over the series! 😊
When is it okay to start listening to Christmas music? 😉
Around Thanksgiving, from my personal experience. But no judgment on anyone who starts listening before that! I mean, it’s music, right? You can listen to it whenever you want 😂
