I hate it when...

... I read a book that I feel like a failure for not liking.

Sadly, I feel this way about The Member of the Wedding. It was a slog through the first 60 pages, then I decided life is too short for books I don't want to read. My edition of the book has great recommendations on it from the New York Times and Time magazine, but this book simply isn't happening for me.

Oh well. On to the next book!


  1. I think I read this for 10th grade summer reading...or maybe was so hard to get through. I HATE to start a book and not finish it, but you made the right decision!

  2. I should have known. If it was on our summer reading list back then, I wouldn't enjoy it!
