30 Day Book Meme - Day 10

Day 10 - A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. Normally it's not my kind of thing at all, but after seeing the movie, I decided to give it a try and Wow! Did I love it! The way Wells captured the period and locale, her characters and their complicated relationships just sucked me right in. I couldn't put it down and had to find out what happened to take Sidda and Vivi to the point of breaking the mother-daughter bond. I didn't, however, read its prequel, Little Altars Everywhere - somehow, it just didn't appeal. Maybe I should try it, though...

Care to share which book surprised you?
