This week’s T5W topic is…
Books You Feel Differently About!
Talk about the books that you feel differently about after you’ve had time to think about them or re-read them. These are books that you gave a low rating, and then thought about it or re-read it and ended up loving. Or a book that you loved when you first read it, but after you’ve thought about it or you’ve gotten older, you see how many problems it had.

I first attempted to read Jane Eyre when I was 14 after receiving it as a gift. I read about two, three chapters and called it quits – I just wasn’t enjoying the writing or the story. Then I tried it again when I was 16 and I adored it! It’s one of my favourites now.
The 5th Wave
First read = loved it. Tried to re-read it just before the second one came out = hated it.
My Sister’s Keeper
The book ending differs from the film ending drastically and after I thought about it a bit (and stopped crying), I realised that I kind of hated the book ending. Both are devastating, but the film is believable devastating – the book is lets-have-a-big-plot-twist-now devastating, but the plot twist doesn’t make sense. At. All.
Switched/Torn/Ascend (Trylle Series)
I loved these books at the time, but in hindsight they were actually pretty meh. I tried rereading them a while ago, and I realised how whiny Wendy was. I wish I’d left them alone after that first time.
I could only think of four – but let’s count the Trylle series as three books, okay? Okay.
What about you guys? Has any else read any of these? Thoughts? Talk to me!
