Have you ever reread a book you hated the first time around?
The first time I read Mary Balogh's A SUMMER TO REMEMBER, I hated it. I hated the heroine and didn't believe her worthy of the hero. She was snotty, cold and unlikeable. I didn't quite understand why fans thought the book was one of Balogh's best; didn't understand why ALL ABOUT ROMANCE made it a keeper and gave it an A review. I decided one day to re-read the book and was I ever glad I did. I loved it, loved the lead characters, the supporting characters (especially Joseph, the Marquess of Attinsborough and Viscount Violet Eyes -- any Balogh fans in the house???) LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!
So, since everyone is so into challenges, this is my challenge: reread a book you hated that everyone around you seems to love (by everyone I mean fellow bloggers, AAR, etc) and let me know how your experience went.
