Day 09 - A book you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Ever since I read this, I haven't been able to shut up about it, and it was really a case of going outside of my comfort zone and trying something different. This is the book that convinced me I should take more chances on books in general but especially classics. It grabbed me so violently and entirely that it's one of my favorite books of all time now. This is why I preach so much about people trying lots of different things, because your next, favorite book might be the thing you never saw coming.
The Great Gatsby is my MIL's and my husbands "favorite book" but hate it. It's full of horrible people doing horrible things and I can't stand it.
Everyone is awful, nobody deserves happiness, and I wish they would all die in a fire in the first chapter.
It's just not good at all, I don't know why it's considered the great American novel.
