In one of the book clubs I'm in, we're reading Gone With the Wind this month. I tried to read it in high school, and due to procrastination, I only made it about 800 pages. I almost wasn't going to attempt to read the book again - I LOVE the movie and have seen it enough times to know the story and characters.
However, I decided to give the book a second chance, and I'm glad I did. I don't know if I'm enjoying it more because it's not an assignment this time or because I started well in advance of the book club deadline. Or maybe I appreciate the writing and storycrafting more because I'm writer too. Or maybe I like the book better because I'm older and wiser, with more life experience, than as a teen. Whatever the reason I'm glad I'm giving this book another shot.
What book(s) did you struggle reading as a teen, but now you enjoy as an adult? Or vice versa? What have you read recently that you surprisingly enjoyed?
live, laugh, love, write
