30 Days of Books: Book that Disappointed Me

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I "read" this in high school. I say "read" because I'm pretty sure I didn't read it. A couple years ago I thought I'd reread it. I figured that as an adult I would appreciate it. Nope. The plot and the themes (religion, societal norms, etc) in the book are things that I find interesting, but it was still such a hard read. The writing is so difficult.

I was disappointed that I couldn't appreciate it. I did watch Easy A with Emma Stone and loved it, so maybe there's hope for me and The Scarlet Letter after all.
