It’s funny how Maraia, Sana and I were thinking about the idea of what it would be like to ONLY re-read for a whole year which is obviously not going to happen because of all the awesome new releases. Then the idea of at least making it 50:50 popped up and I thought that might actually be a goal for next year, when my TBR is finally at a number where I want it to be. And here I am with half the books I read this year being re-reads. AND IT’S SO MUCH FUN! I’m having the best of times.
I have a little obsession with this book/series right now. I already got my copy of the book a little early, so I got the audiobook on release day (which is FANTASTIC) and when I was done with my first re-read, I almost immediately started listing from the start all over again. I might set a new re-read record with this one that even The Raven Cycle can’t compete with.
My first ever successful audiobook read and it was great! It definitely started a new obsession. I loved the narrators and I liked the story a lot more than when I first read it. Back then I had a hard time getting into the story.
When I read Golden Son at the end of 2014 I was already struggling because I didn’t remember most of the characters. There are just too many to remember them over a year later. So before reading Morning Star, the last book in the trilogy, I re-read these two and it was SO MUCH FUN to binge read the whole series. I have already plans to re-read again via audiobook.
I’ve been meaning to re-read this series for a long time and I finally did when Maraia made me listen to the audiobook which is fantastic because it’s read by Jesse Eisenberg *swoons* I didn’t even use the 2x speed as usual because I really like listening to his voice LOL
Have you read any of these books? Do you re-read via audiobook too?

I’m currently reading White Cat and I’m really enjoying it! Can’t wait to read the sequels!
My re-reading is only at 20%. D: I hope you can keep yours at 50%, it’s so amazing! Audiobooks make everything better. I didn’t realize you were planning to re-reading the Red Rising trilogy via audio. I’m not sure I could keep everything straight. XD
If only TRC had a better narrator…
Schwab said the audiobooks are amazing so obviously I must listen to them (not anytime soon though I think)
I will never get over TRC not being good on audio but then maybe it’s better that way or else would listen to it non-stop XD
LOL at “little” obsession. Way to dial it down, C! =P
How are you already at 2x speed, though? I could hardly stomach 1.5x.
My re-reading is at 50%, too which isn’t bad but I only read 3 books in February so it doesn’t really count and I need to step up my game (by which I mean probably reread TRC, ADSOM and TSS a lot of times mainly).
Because I dialed up until 2x within 10min of the first audiobook XD I didn’t want to get used to the slower one because I knew I wouldn’t be able to get to 2x later
YES to lots of re-reading of TRC,ADSOM and TSS!
I definitely couldn’t do re-reads for an entire year, but I do love to re-read favourite books :) Right now I’m re-reading The Fellowship of the Ring. Nice choices to re-read!
The Shades of Magic series is so compelling I completely understand this desire. I immediately wanted to start rereading AGOS once I finished it and cannot stop thinking about the characters and story. Victoria has outdone herself with these books!
