This Week’s Question
Do you go back and reread the previous book before starting the sequel?
Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.
This is a great question! You’re talking to a woman who is not a big fan of re-reading books. I don’t know what it is… once I’ve read a book, unless I really, really loved it, I just don’t get the urge to re-read. However, I have recently started seeing the merit in re-reading books and the main merit I see is when it comes to series.
I may have mentioned before that I have terrible memory when it comes to books I’ve read. I can remember most character names and the general plot, but if you ask me for details, even if I literally just finished, you will be met with a blank stare 😂 This is quite obviously a problem when it comes to reading series! Before, I would just dive into the newest book and, usually, the story would help me remember things I had forgotten from the previous book. Recently, though, I’ve noticed that that doesn’t always work and I find myself completely lost in the sequel. So I’ve tried the whole re-reading thing and, lo and behold, it helps quite a lot! Who knew!
All that being said, is this going to turn me into a serial re-reader? Haha, no! More than likely, it’s going to make me not start a series until all the books are out. Because I have a problem 🤷🏾♀️
