This week the Monday Musings question from Should Be Reading is the following: Have you ever reread a book and found that your opinion changed?
I haven’t ever had my opinion change dramatically or with one re-read, but I have outgrown books that were my favorites for a while. I used to love the Redwall books which were the very first long books I read when I was younger, but now they seem too young. I might re-read them again soon and see if I enjoy them again though. Another one-time favorite was Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’s In The Forests of the Night. Again, I just outgrew it, but I still remember it fondly and may give it another try in the future.
Have you ever outgrown a book or had a re-read not live up to your expectations? On the other hand, has a re-read ever made you like a book better?
