Today I'm going to talk a little about an unexpected treasure. I read Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris as a result of the Take a Chance Challenge and I surprisingly loved it. It's not that I don't like classics. I just rarely read them. I have a few bad experiences (ahem The Scarlett Letter) so they are not the first thing I reach for. But I genuinely loved Mrs. 'Arris and her wacky adventure of looking for her own personal Dior dress for no other reason than to own something beautiful. I love how genuine she is and how because of that, others are inclined to be more genuine and generous themselves.
I love it when either a book blogger or a reading challenge leads me to an unexpected place. For the most part I stick to my own preferred genre and rarely get out of it. Not that I mind, but with book challenges it's great when they can get me out of my safe place and into a new world.
