What books do you reread over and over again?

[OT] I've enjoyed Christine's Carpathians, but I like the Leopard Series even more! And a couple of the Carpathians cross over into the Leopard world. I LOVED the Drake Sisters book but was somewhat disappointed with the last one. I guess that's a pretty common response when one has looked forward to the final book SOOOOOO much. But my main problem was the depth of depravity CF exposed us to, just to get the point accross as to how nasty the bad guy really was. I think I could have skipped the first 100 pages, or so, and have gotten more enjoyment out of it.

I have REALLY enjoyed the Ghost Walkers, too! Seems like there was one of the books that I had trouble getting into, but I can't remember which one, somewhere around book 5 or 6, I think.

[Back ON Topic] Having just completed the Ranger's Apprentice series, I can say with confidence that this is a series I'll read over and over again. I devoured these books as fast as I could get them from the Library. Those will be the first books I buy when/if I get an E-reader! My son wants to read them, too, and share the E-reader with me, lOL. Not sure that will work too well since he and I are both avid readers. I can see the problems that will arise if we try to share. May get him his own for Christmas.

Denise, my sons have the Ranger's Apprentice series, so I guess I'll have them stack them up and put them in my TBR pile! I won't even have to wait to get them from the library! 8-) :D

Single White Vampire (Of course lol)
Dealings with Dragons
Princess Bride (Yes its a book, and please read it. Seriously, its sooo much better than the movie and thats saying something.)

Currently rereading Linda Howards McKenzie books. On Book 2, McKenzie's Mission right now. And of course I reread Lynsay's books, although for some reason I still have not completed a second go thru of The Reluctant Vampire. I Keep starting it, then getting interrupted and moving on to some other book. I've also reread JR Wards BDB series, Maggi Shayne's Wings in the Night and Immortal High Witch series, Colleen Gleason's Gardella Books, Kerrelyn Spark's Love at Stake, and Lynn Viehl's Darkyn and Kyndred books. There are others but can't think so early in the morning.

[OT] KittyGirl, I just got The Fairy Godmother from the library. Looking forward to it. Are the rest in the series good, too?

Wren, yes, you might as well. I finally got them all on ebook and will start re-reading, soon.

[Back on track] Of course I reread the Argeneaus regularly. Aside from those I reread David Eddings's Belgariad series every couple of years, also a few of my Mary Balogh traditional Regencies, Jo Beverley's Traditionals and Company of Rogues series, many of my seasonal anthologies, Kerrelyn's Love at Stake series.... many others but it usually just depends on what I'm in the mood for.

I've been reading Mercedes Lackey books since way back in the 80s. A great writer whom you can always count on for good stuff. I'm currently waiting for season five of "The Secret World Chronicle" a free superhero podcast drama that she writes with three other authors.I get them through iTunes. Each season is like a free audio book and with Mercedes Lackey on board, how can you go wrong?
