Michela Searson | 214 comments Hey I'm Michela. I don't really plan the books that I am going to read as I usually do not stick to it. I am more of a person who reads whatever book I feel like reading. I hope that is alright.

good luck with that! :) I'll have to study all weekend and write my dissertation, so not a lot of time to read for me ^^


message 41: by Daniela (new)

Daniela Zekotic | 81 comments So I just finished my second book (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) :) I'm still not quite sure how the review thing works as it's hard to just write down what happened in the story as there was a lot happening in this one. So I just wrote some short review, I do hope it'll be enough, otherwise I'll have to write more


message 42: by Courtney (new)

Courtney | 11423 comments Sorry I have not been able to read anything yet. However, today is my last class before spring break so I should be able to gey some books in :)


message 43: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany Heywood (tiffthebooknerd) | 1562 comments I am so sorry I haven't been able to finish a book yet but I am going to read all day tomorrow. I have just been so stressed with college work and so tired I have just been falling to sleep when I come home from work


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments @Courtney we're also starting our spring break here in saudi arabia :)

@Tiffany take it easy.. College is more important! We're reading for fun..

I also haven't been able to finish a book for a week.. I am no longer interested in what I am reading .. Starting to feel like another slump on the way :( but i am not going to let it take over :D

don't worry about it! College comes first, and the reading shouldn't feel like a chore. We're all here for the fun of reading after all :)


message 46: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany Heywood (tiffthebooknerd) | 1562 comments I know but I normally read more then what I have been. I miss reading but I'm loving the book I'm reading at the moment


message 47: by Tiffany (new)
