Happy Monday! Let’s start this week off with a book review. Ever since I was a little girl I have always enjoyed reading because it is so calming and relaxing. The first time I ever read this book The Catcher in the Rye I was a junior in high school and man that was a long time ago back in 2003. I recently decided to reread this book again to see if I would understand it more and enjoy it. I finished the book and now I’m ready to share my thoughts with you all so keep reading for all the deets.

My Thoughts: I am very happy that I reread this book because I definitely understand this book so much more now that I am older. I completely comprehend the main character in the book although I do not relate to him on a personal level. If you are looking for a new book to read, then I recommend this to all of my readers. This is an easy read and quite enjoyable.
