Sunday Post (108) / Stacking the Shelves (88)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

Sometimes when I read a book in a series I usually think should I reread the other books or should I just continue? I usually pick the latter because as the book progresses I can remember the details of what happen in the last book. The minor details? Not so much. Especially if there are a ton of characters and I’m like wait…who’s that again? For example, I just watched Mockingjay Part 1 last week and I couldn’t remember who Johanna was. Annie, yes. Johanna? Uhh…my mind just blanked. And as much as I would love to reread I just don’t have time to reread everything. Rereading does get a little exhausting, even though it’s fun to reread. It’d be so much easier if YA books also came with cliff notes. I hope you guys have a great week.

  1. I always want to reread the previous books in a series when I read the next book but I rarely have time to do so. My reread stack is almost as long as my to read stack. Have a great week!

  2. I don’t usually read previous books in the series because of time, and like you, I struggle to remember details when there’s a long lead time between sequels. I recently discovered Recaptains which does a detailed recap of the book, it’s really fantastic actually! It helped me with The Winner’s Crime.

  3. Details in a series are hard to recall. That is why I reread the entire Outlander series this year. I usually won’t get into an extensive series halfway if it is an alternate world. And, I have a tough time when there are years between series’ books.

  4. I agree with YA books having confronted in series it is needed. I have Winners Crime to read but I can’t remember half of what happened. However I do ‘re read favourite book series of mine over and over yearly.

  5. I never reread and when I start the new book in a series it takes me a few minutes to get my mind wrapped around it and then I am like oh yeah now I remember what happen previously and then I just go on with the book. 🙂

  6. If I really love a series and it’s been awhile since the last book, I’ll reread them. Most of the time the author fills you in briefly so you can pick it back up without having to.

  7. I loved Cynthia Hand’s angel series, but I’m not a big contemporary fan, so not sure if I’ll get around to reading this new one.

  8. Definitely looking forward to seeing what you think of The Sin Eater’s Daughter and Falling Into Place – I’ve heard so many great things about both of those books. 😀 Thanks for sharing, and happy reading! <3
