What’s a book that you wish you’d never read...
...so that you could read it again for the first time because it was so good?

Mine is War and Peace

I was going to say A Game of Thrones based on the title until I clicked and saw the context.

That's as good an answer as any I can think of.

Honestly, though, my favorite books tend to be ones that I struggle with the first time, and that get better on re-reading. Lonesome Dove was greatness the first time through. True Grit falls into the same category.

Yeah it’s gotta be Blood Meridian for me.
I just finished it last week and I’m already wishing I could read it again for the first time.

Also probably 1984.

I need to give this one another try.
I couldn’t get through 1/4 of it the first time.

If you didn't grow up in New Orleans, it may not have the same impact it had on me.

True Grit by Charles Portis


Both movie versions are outstanding, but unlike them the book is actually a comedy. And it's awesome

The Harry Potter series. I’d love to be blindsided again.
