Ashley (bookworm84) It was hard for me to vote. I think there was only one book on there that I liked (which is the one I voted for). The rest I haven't read and therefore cannot give an opinion or I didn't like them either.

Jenn you can add books to the list you know...


message 4: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Twilight series for sure. I couldn't get into those one bit.
