Follow Friday (43)

Welcome to Follow Me Friday Hosted By and
Gain New Blog Followers

This weeks question:

If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

Ok, so I really want to say Mockingjay, but I say that book to much for questions like this.

My answer for book I would like to unread because it was THAT bad is:
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister

I had friends tell me this author was amazing and that I needed to read him. Someone lent me Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and I read the entire book waiting for something interesting to happen… I never found it:( I know there are people out there that liked this, but it was not for me at all.

My answer for books I would like to start over and experience again for the first time:

There are so many books that I would love to experience meeting for the first time again, so I will just picture some of my favorites If they are part of a series you can bet I mean all of them.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)On the Island
Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1)Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1)A Hidden Fire (Elemental Mysteries Book #1)
Click Image to go to Goodreads page.

OK, let me just be honest, I am going to stop there because this could end up being my longest blog post ever with image after image of books I would love to go back and experience for the first time. There is really nothing like finding a book, or a whole series you can just fall in love with is there?

  1. Old follower now also following through Linky, I would love the chance to reread my favourite books for the first time again just the feeling of excitement you get, great answer, thanks for stopping by.

  2. I have not read Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister, but did read his book, Wicked. I loved Wicked. The political undertones were interesting and I found myself hoping for the witch.
    There are a couple on your list of "Would Like to Experience Again" that I have not read and will have to look up.

  3. I haven't heard of Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister, it's a shame it wasn't an enjoyable read.

    My FF -

    Have a nice weekend :)

  7. I would love to unread Harry Potter so that I could experience the magic again. I would also like to be middle grade when I did it so that I could experience it as a child. I was in my 20s when HP came out!

  12. Hi, new follower here, I felt the same way when I read Wicked.
    My FF

  13. Great choices! I was going to choose Harry Potter, but then I decided that I wouldn't want to undo all of the experiences I had while reading for the first time, like waiting for the midnight releases, discussing with friends, and even being spoiled for various deaths. It means so much to me, I don't think I'd want to undo my first reading experience!

  14. Great choices Rebecca. Happy Friday **New Follower** through GFC

  15. Hi. New follower. I would love to be able to recapture the experience of reading Harry Potter again for the first time. However, I do find new insights and connections each time i have reread the entire series. HP is one of a few book series I can read again and again.

  16. I agree with Harry Potter.

  17. I would have to agree with the Harry Potter series as well
