Bookworm : The Great Gatsby

Ten Feet Off Beale - The Great Gatsby

After reading The Paris Wife (in which this book is mentioned) and hearing about the new movie coming out this summer, I decided to brush off a classic: The Great Gatsby. I'm pretty sure I had to read this at some point in school, but I honestly don't remember. I will say, I enjoyed it!! I had no idea what was going to happen in the end and I was anxiously turning pages (errr scrolling I guess on my tablet) to see what was going to happen to the great Mr. Gatsby. 

I think I have a mild obsession with the 20s and flappers just based on the fact that the last three out of six books I've read all take place in that time period. I might need to branch out a little bit... anybody have any book recomendations?

PS. Are any of you Goodreads? Come be my friend!!


  1. I've been wanting to re-read that book before the movie comes out too!

    I can't remember if you've told me before, but have you read Redeeming Love yet?? All time fav!

  2. ooo I wanted to read this book before the movie came out(the movie looks awesome)! I'm sure I was told to read this in high school too, but never did :/... I think I'll DL it today!

  3. I haven't read this since high school either but I definitely plan on rereading it soon. It was always one of my favorites. Have you seen the sweatshirts floating around Pinterest that say, "I Partied with Gatsby"?

  4. I definitely have to read it before the movie.

    Hope you had a great weekend!
