I have always been a perpetual rereader. In fact, most of what I read up until I graduated college were cyclical rereads of the same books. Why? Because I find comfort in familiar stories. And I love what I love. But honestly, in the last five years I haven’t reread much. I jumped into the world of book-blogging and librarying and grabbed all the new books and all the new reads.
So now I think it is the perfect time to take some time to revisit old friends, to see how my reading life has changed my perspective on first loves. Jessica described her choices as a chronological look at her reading history. I really like that idea, actually. I think it will help me to rediscover more of myself over the next year.
