Books You Feel Differently About


I read P.S. I Like You as an ARC a month before it’s release date. And I don’t know if I just wasn’t in the mood for a YA contemporary novel at that time, or if I was having an off-day, but I didn’t give this book a very high rating. However, the more I think about the story and the characters, the more my heart grows fonder of West’s writing. 


I read A Tale of Two Cities in high school as a required reading. I remember hating it. However, as I grow more into loving the Victorian period, I think about how genius this book is and what a great impact it had on the nineteenth-century, as a whole.  


Twilight is the main book that began my obsession with Young Adult Literature; however, every time I re-read this book or even think about it, I become more indifferent about its themes and the characters’ motivations. 


I feel more passionate about this collection of poems today than I did when I first read them for my undergraduate English class. Every time I think about these poems or re-read them, I fall deeper in love with studying the origin of fairy tales (Grimm brothers) and analyzing these poems with a feminist lens.


I have re-read Since You’ve Been Gone multiple times; it’s my go-to book to cure my reading slumps. And every time I re-read it, I fall more and more in love with Emily and Frank’s friendship/relationship. Similar to my first reading experience of Since You’ve Been Gone, I am still not a big fan of Sloane or the flashbacks involving Sloane.


What books do you feel differently about after you’ve had time to think about them or re-read them?

  1. Great post. I was really young when I first read A Tale of Two Cities. I should go back to it and see if my feelings about it have changed too:-) I have heard good things about PS:I like You, perhaps its the mood that wasn’t right as you mentioned, sometimes that affects how we feel about certain books. Perhaps you can reread it someday :-)Happy Wednesday!
