I’ve had a similar experience, only I’ve found you can rediscover those books that were crammed down your throat in your youth. When I was doing my reading for my PhD comprehensive exams, I found new joy in Dickens and other authors I had loathed many years ago. I absolutely hated medieval literature as an undergrad, thinking it flat and uninteresting, only later to take it up as a career.

I had such a prejudice against Dickens…

Had you tried Wilkie Collins, a good friend of Dickens?  Very fleshed-out characters and entertaining to read. Woman in White was one of the first mystery novels and considered one of the finest of its kind.
