I’m supposed to list my top rereading books for Jessica’s mini-challenge! I love rereading books, so here we go:

  1. Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  2. anything by Neil Gaiman
  3. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Well, that about covers the books I’ve reread several times! What I love about rereading anything by Gaiman or Austen is that they grow with me; I find new things about myself and the stories each time I visit the book. I love rereading Anne of Green Gables because it’s like having a slumber party with a very dear friend. :D

Also, during my break, I made hot chocolate for Mom and I. So that’s the photos for this post! My mom got me my very own hot chocolate whisk a couple months ago with little hearts in it: isn’t it adorable?!

    I am totally not one for rereading… Too many new books to read!

    Chocolate is the way to go after this many hours. You are wise.

    Eva, thanks for participating in my mini-challenge and congratulations on winning! Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables are probably my top 2 rereads of all time. I can always fall into those stories.

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
