Reading: The Great Gatsby (again)

Every summer I reread my favorite book of all time The Great Gatsby. The first time I read this book was my junior year of high school and it really made an impression on me. It was the start of my obsession with the 1920s and art deco style. This year is especially exciting with the new movie coming out Christmas Day starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby. The male cast members are entirely clad in Brooks Brothers and I can’t wait to see Carey Mulligan’s wardrobe as Daisy. I will most likely be a total nerd dressed in my flapper attire and headpiece on Christmas Day at the movie theaters. Although I wish I could catch a case of book amnesia, I notice something new every time I read it.
