Over Christmas vacation this year I decided to read through some of my old favourite books, going right back to the young-adult novels I enjoyed as a pre-teen and teen. I reread a lot — though less than I used to; these days I make much more of an effort to seek out recommendations for good new books (the internet has been a huge gift in that regard!). I generally don’t review books that I reread here, but I decided to do a series of reviews on some of the old favourites I read over Christmas and some others I’ll be rereading throughout the months ahead. Maybe you’ll discover one of your old favourites here — or perhaps you’ll find something new to enjoy in a book I’ve cherished for years.
Regularly scheduled reviews of new books will continue to re-appear in among the Old Favourites, don’t worry!
