Rhaine I love most of the books on this page. Some of them I've never read and I'll definitely have to add them to my want to read section.


message 6: by Celeste (last edited Aug 11, 2013 07:12PM) (new)

Celeste I'm pretty sure 'Night' and 'The Diary of a Young Girl' is Nonfiction.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'm pretty sure you're right. Removed.
