Sandra | 18 comments Well, I've still got Angelfall and the first three of the mortal instruments to read. It's pretty hard to get english/american books in the Netherlands. :) I love these topics so I can add more books to my list. Every book I read I own haha. My collection is expending rapidly lol

Hey Laura

Good idea!! I did that before and it was easier for me to keep track by posting as I go. Now I have to change books if I find another book that's better. Good luck
