** Regarding the books that I do not like: please do not let me opinion of the book prevent you from reading it for yourself. We all have different tastes and writing styles that we prefer; I'm just a bit picky with my literature, and prefer books which actually have some morality in them. 


  1. Hannah,

    I think we have different reading tastes, or maybe you just read a lot more than me. Anyway, I adore The Help! It was lovely. And I love Pride and Prejudice too. I hate novels like Gossip Girl because they are just about people backstabbing each other. I want to preserve my shred of faith in humanity, but reading those books doesn't help.


    1. Esther,

      I read a LOT. I adore books, and spend as much time in them as I can. =) I agree, any shred of faith in humanity is certainly worth preserving.
