Discussion Posts: Re-reading series before the new installment comes out

This month has seen the announcement of the next book in the Raven Cycle series’ cover announced and the next book in the Cinder series released. Both of these things prompted much excitement here at SxLx because we’re into these series. Beth struggled with the decision to re-read the whole series before diving into Winter. I took the new cover art as a signal to re-read the Raven Cycle. In my case, the decision was easy because I haven’t finished Dream Thieves and at this point I’ve probably forgotten more than I remember. But, I know that not everyone feels this pull to revisit the older installments before getting to the new one. So, the comments section is open! What are your thoughts on re-reading a series before the new book comes out? Are you for it? Against it? Do you do it?

Are you a re-reader?

  1. I finished Winter and now going back to the beginning with Cinder. Already I’ve found things I’ve missed in previous readings

    • that’s always what I notice, too. after I read Mime Order last winter I re-read Bone Season and I was surprised by all the little things I’d not noticed the first time

      • I have a feeling I’m going to have read both again before the next book comes out since there still isn’t a release date.

  2. I think it always helps to re-read but it depends on the series. I think I’ll want to re-read the last 2 Young Bonds before the next one comes out just get me in the zone, but I doubt that my enjoyment of the story will depend on it.
