Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments The last two are really page turners...don't give up, I'd check the library...not something you want in your library, but worth the read.

Oh yeah...great job on the first ten!

Ata I hope it will stop in Eclipse, because, even though it annoyed me so much, I'm still hooked on this series... =(

Tristen | 60 comments What did you think about The Perks of Being a Wallflower? I've been meaning to read it...

message 15: by Ata (new)

Ata It was an easy read. I liked how the character described everything + it was written in letters which was even better! The story wasn't so great at the beginning, but I liked how it developed later... and the ending was kinda shocking.

You should definitely read it ;D
