Book Challenge Day 9- A Book That You Thought You Wouldn’t Like But Ended Up Loving

Posted on

I had seen this book on my yearly trip to the used book store three times and always picked it up and considered it. I had heard great things, but every time I read the back I couldn’t imagine actually enjoying it.

I didn’t want to read about the life of a beekeeper. I could think of very few things less appealing. But, my cousins insisted that it was worth the read and even let me borrow her copy. I had no excuse not to try. So, I sat down and began to read. And didn’t stop. I think I read the whole book in 2 or 3 days. It was fabulous. There was the perfect balance of character development and intrique so that you were immediately attached to the characters and and desperate to discover what was going to happen next. An excellent read, no matter what the title says.

Tomorrow, be prepared for a blast from the past with the first “chapter book” I remember reading.


About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.

  1. I hate it when the back blurb doesn’t do justice to the actual book. I’m like you with this book and haven’t read it because why would I want to read about beekeepers? Now I feel like I should give it a try – thank you!
