  1. This sounds like something I should possibly join, as a big believer in seasonally-appropriate reading. I was so excited to read some spooky books this season, but the two I've picked up so far disappointed me, and I didn't even finish them. :P I hope you have better luck with your books - and with your schoolwork!

    1. You should definintely join! :D there's still time!
      I'm sorry to hear that /: I always hate when books I expect to like never turn out as good as I think they will. I'm hoping the books I've picked turn out better too! And thank you. Things are starting to slow down for me thank god xD
