Rereading Old Favourites

After many years (maybe decades?) without rereading a book, I decided to embark on a reading project that consisted in picking up again some of my old favourites. These are books that I believed to be 5-star reads and that I kept mentioning, but that I had read for the first time both before having this blog and using a rating system.

The six books that I considered to be old favourites are listed below and, now that I reread them all, feature links to the respective reviews. Did I love all of them the second time around? Not really. However, I still wholeheartedly recommend them all. I truly loved five of them and highly enjoyed the other. They stood the test of time for me!
