Readalong : Madame Bovary : Week three

I'm participating in The Lost Entwife's March readalong of Madame Bovary. The reading assignment for March 15-21 was Chapters 13-18. I'm reading from the 2010 Viking edition.

I tried. I really did. As I've made clear in my two previous readalong posts, making it through Madame Bovary has been a struggle for me. I finally decided to give up last Friday one chapter into this week's assignment. Several friends asked me what I was reading, and I responded rather dejectedly, "Madame Bovary." After hearing myself say it, I decided there are so many other books I want to read that it was ridiculous to continue wasting time with a book that I wasn't enjoying. Thus I have failed this readalong. Please don't judge me too harshly.
