To Reread or Not to Reread?

Charlotte's Web
by E.B White
(5 scoops)
A classic. 
The themes are still relevant and the language still gorgeous.

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.
by Judy Blume
(1 scoop)
This book does not stand the test of time. It is poorly structured and the writing is bad. It is not funny, nor salacious, and doesn't even communicate any helpful information about puberty. Also, there is a sub plot, that I had no memory of whatsoever, regarding Margaret's search for an organized religion. It starts out interestingly, but concludes in a wishy-washy way that is extremely unsatisfying. 

The only thing that this book is good for is making fun of! 
See my submission to Book: The Sequel

— From God? It’s Margaret Again… (sequel to Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume)
I’ve got another question.
