B Wants: A classic novel

It was so long ago when I first read The Great Gatsby. It was one of those books that was piled in front of you at the start of the school year which you naturally roll your eyes at. It was read and I remember being caught up in the story but honestly don't think I appreciated it completely at the time. Which is why I have decided to re-read the classic. Started it last night and might be done by tomorrow then a Robert Redford viewing may be in order. What book would you re-read?

You are so right. Sometimes a book means so much more a few years later.

Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise is one of my favorites. But I think I'd like to reread Chopin's The Awakening, especially because I am in a totally different place in my life than the first time I read it (which was in college). Perspective is a huge game changer in terms of novels. You know?

Want to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird, I love that book in High School. The Great Gatsby is also on my list, especially since they are coming out with a movie soon starring Leo DiCaprio which is sure to be AMAZING!

Confession: I've never read the Great Gatsby...I think I might need to change that soon, though!

The Great Gatsby is a great story. I have it on my bookshelf. Classic pieces of literature are great to read over and over and over again.
