Meg McGimpsey shared her list of re-reads with SCENE:
I re-read a lot of books. If I love a book I'll return to it every couple of years (or admittedly sometimes more often) to reacquaint myself with its characters.
The books that I re-read are the ones I'd recommend, such as Lauren B. Davis's Radiant City about a journalist suffering from post-traumatic stress in a city where every character's past is haunting them in some way or another.
Or the Red Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, which despite depicting the first settlements on Mars, you really don't need to be a science fiction fan to enjoy. The novels go much deeper into the socio-political and environmental implications of colonizing the red planet.
Or anything (really anything at all) by Nick Hornby.
