2020 Booktube Rereadathon Wrap Up

In an effort to reread books more often I participated in the Booktube Rereadathon last year. There is a prompt for each month to help you choose a book to reread. I didn’t get to all of them in the assigned month, but I did complete all 12 prompts over the course of the year. The prompt is listed first and the book I read is underneath. I’ve included my star rating as well.

January-reread a translated book

  • A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman ✰5✰

February-rediscover a book you haven’t read in over 10 years

  • Treasures of the Snow by Patricia St John ✰2✰

March-rearead a book written before you were born

  • A Patch of Blue by Elizabeth Kata ✰1✰

April-reread a book from a genre you don’t usually read any more

  • Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone by JK Rowling ✰3✰

May-reread a second chance book

  • The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket ✰3✰

  1. I like the idea of this, but there are so many books I want to read for the first time. I just don’t think I can give any time to a reread. I used to reread books all of the time. That was when I was still able to feel bored. I haven’t felt boredom in about 20 years. lol

    1. I thought the same thing until I started this rereading challenge last year. I used to reread constantly when I was a child and teenager. I never reread as an adult. But I wanted too. So I tried to reread one book each month last year and it was fantastic. I read 200 books in 2020 so 12 of them being rereads wasn’t much percentage wise and once I reread a book from a favorite series I ended up reading more from that series and ended up with 26 rereads I think. It was a great experience and I’ve chosen 12 books to read again this year. Many are my favorites from last year and I can’t wait to read them and love them all over again. I think it’s certainly worth trying.
