I'm reading Friends vs. Family now. And It amazing how much has changed in Sang's relationship with the guys!
I've noticed so many interesting things like:
1. Dr. Green used to call Sang 'Miss Sang'. I'm pretty sure he doesn't now because it's not ringing any bells for me. I think it's so cute how he tried to keep a distance between them and know how miserably he failed.
2. I feel like since I've read all the books I know Mr. Blackbourne a little better and now it seems like the amount of affection he has for Sang is staggering. Before I felt like he put a wall between them but even with him that wall is shaky. I don't feel like he's going to cross the line he's drawn for himself but knowing what I know now he's not hiding the developing feelings at all.
2a. It makes me wonder just how much of those feelings influenced his decision to let Sang go back into the house after the infamous shower scene.
3. I didn't realize how attractive Sang thought Luke was. I think I'm so caught up in my own bias that I missed it. She said that out of the seven guys Luke was the best looking. I've read this before (multiple times in fact), and this is just now sinking in. Luke is hot. Wow. I don't dislike Luke, but now I'm a little more aware of him.
3a. I think my personality got in the way of me noticing this. I don't think 'I want my guy to be handsome' I think 'I want my guy to be sexy' and so that's how I arrange the guys in my mind as far as their appeal. Who knew being biased could color even the way you read stuff?
4. Taco soup. Did CL ever give out this recipe? I kind of want it.
5. I think I finally understand Sang a little better too. At some points, I thought, 'Really Sang? You don't think that's inappropriate? Seriously?' But I have a clearer picture now. Her family life was really messed up. I realized that her family didn't touch each other, didn't look at each other, but it's a concept that I can grasp a little better and see how it would affect her.
6. Ms. Sorenson's parents. Alive, but never call. Never contact them. I have two possible conclusions about that now. I'm almost certain they know Mr. Sorenson raped Sang's mother. They wanted her to leave Mr. Sorenson (perhaps she went to them upset about the situation), but she didn't and they disowned her. Or perhaps Mrs. Sorenson came from an abusive home too. It could be where she got her ideas of where to torment Sang from.
Has anyone else noticed anything during a reread?
