Second Time Around



I read a lot of books. Every book I read may not become a favorite, but there are some books that stay with you, after the last page. Lately, I have been longing to read some of my favorites, for a second time. I think it is the summer months, where the pull of a good book and a lounge chair either in the shade or next to a pool is strong.

These are the books I have been thinking about and plan on reading a second time, this summer - I bet they are some of your favorites too :-)

  • The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan - a great book about mothers and daughters.
  • Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik - one of the first books my book club read.
  • Eat Pray Love By Elizabeth Gilbert - could you give up everything and travel the world?
  • Under The Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes - starting over in beautiful Tuscany. I want to go there!
Also, when I heard there was a new book coming in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, I started to read the books again last fall. There is so much historical detail and the characters are so great, I enjoyed them just as much the second time.

According to the latest Amazon posting, the new book will be published in March of 2014, but the date has already been moved back twice. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for Jamie, Claire, Brianna and Roger.

Happy Thursday!

  1. I re-read books all the time! The only one of these I've read is The Joy Luck Club. But I will take the others as recommendations and check them out. :)

  2. I read so much more in the summer! And I have been re-reading some of my favorites this year, too. Right now I'm in the middle of The Secret Garden, which I hadn't read since I was a little girl. One of these days I'll have to get into the Outlander series; I have many friends who just love those books.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions, Vicki!The only one I read was Eat Pray Love. Have a great day!

  4. I have so many book suggestions to read I guess I will never get to reading any of them twice. I liked the Under the Tuscan Sun though .. .

  5. Seeing the Diana Gabaldon book reminded me of her wonderful series. Although I must admit that I lost interest as it moved to America. Loved Eat Pray Love -= much more than the movie which just scratched the surface. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Great selection Vicki! It's been awhile since I've read Eat Pray Love and Under The Tuscan Sun.. need to pick those back up!

  7. I loved!! the Angry Housewives book!!! Just the best! Right now I'm reading The Aviator's Wife~ a fictional account of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's marriage. Interesting....

  8. Under the Tuscan Sun is a favorite. I only read the "eat" part of Eat, Pray, Love :)

  9. My book club keeps me reading year round...except for a short summer break. It helps me read a variety of things, books that I might otherwise miss.


Thanks for reading!
