Francesca | 786 comments Two books by King on your list and both two of my favourite books. I'm thoroughly impressed. I hope you like them.

You have a great list. We share a couple of books in common for next year, Animal Farm and Columbine (which I didn't actually manage to fit onto my list but I'm planning to read it as a side read), and a few of these I've read before and thoroughly enjoyed. Hope you enjoy your challenge!
