Tea Talk Thursday is a semi-regular discussion feature on the blog, where Madalyn (your resident tea barista) recommends a tea she’s been loving recently and discusses whatever bookish thoughts are on her mind.
Recently, I’ve been feeling pretty anxious, so I’ve been trying to cut back on my caffeine intake by drinking more herbal and fruit teas (which are caffeine-free). I’ve been especially loving Just Add Honey’s Mint to Be blend.
Let’s talk about rereading! This is a topic that’s discussed fairly often in the blogging world, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. Since my mental health has been so dodgy this semester, I find myself seeking stability and comfort in the pages of my favorite books. Personally, I’ve always been a huge fan of rereading favorites. Not only do I find rereads comforting, but I also enjoy looking for things I might have missed the first time or the previous times I’ve read the book. I especially love finding instances when the author has perfectly set up the story by foreshadowing events that occur in future books in the series (or just later on in the book, if it’s a standalone). Plus, I often feel as though I’m a totally different person than I was when I originally read the book, so I usually find meaning and enjoyment in different elements of the book upon rereading. I find that my ratings and reviews often change significantly from my original reading to my rereads.
All of that being said, let’s discuss some of my favorite books and series to reread, as well as some books that I hope to reread soon!
