Trashy Books




I am not sure what it is about some books that draw us back to read them again years later.  Perhaps it is to see if they were as good as we remember.  One of these books is Payton Place.  I read when I was a teenager and for some reason I decided that I just have to reread it.  So tonight I picked it up from Amazon with a gift certificate that a friend sent me for Yule.  This has to be one of the first books that isn't a jewelry book that I have purchased in forever.  It certainly wasn't that I was lacking in reading material.  With all the free books I get from reviewing and from Amazon I certainly have enough to read for the next 10 years yet I couldn't resist.

And I think that once I finish this series I will pick up A STONE FOR DANNY FISHER which is another book that I remember fondly.  Heck if I remember correctly I even picked up some of my political views from it.

Do you have any books that you are drawn to reread from years ago?  Perhaps a trashy guilty pleasure type of book?  If so please share.  Maybe it will go onto my list.

  1. No better purchase then a much loved favorite :)I reread all of my books. As a matter of fact, if a book sits in my house for a year without my wanting to read it again, it goes to a new home. That's not saying I read them every year, but that they have to have that pull that will draw me back to them. My favorite book, one that I've reread so often I had to track down a new copy because I'd worn the first one out, was one of the very first fantasy novels I'd ever read. Spellfire by Ed Greenwood. I instantly fell in love with, not only the main characters, but the supporting characters to. To change it up, I'll read only the good guy chapters, or only the bad guy chapters .. lol I've found the supporting characters from this book in other books and series and once I knew they were out there, I actively sought them out. Elminster as been my all time fave wizard since that very first read and the Knights of Myth Drannor my fave band of adventurers lol

  2. I am a huge fantasy reader and yet haven't read Spellfire. I will have to search it down now.
