Miss Electro Sparkle said...

Oh wow that's a great book list
Yeah I agree with Nomes and Isme
Hunger games is pretty good! Infact it's more than pretty good, it's pure awesomeness XD
Okay but you should really read Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, Shiver, Lord Of The Rings. S.O.T.P is more of a young adult book
