Day 12 - A book you used to love but don't anymore

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides

I still like this book. I found it difficult to find a book that I used to love and no longer do because I loved them for a reason. This one is one that touches the topic of suicide strongly, something I used to be able to handle easier than now. After someone close to me committed suicide however, I have a much more difficult time handling anything in regards to suicide. Strangely enough, all of my own writing maintain strong suicidal themes throughout. However, I cannot get through this book again without starting to cry.
