I've been to three libraries so far trying to find an author with the same initials as me - M.I. I might have to swap the initials around

And the book by a female author could be anything because most of the books I want to read or my favourite authors are female. I'm going to have to sit down and think about what I want to read for the rest of the year.

Lol, I like your recommendation for the book with bad reviews. I wandered to its Goodreads page some weeks ago (I like the cover :p) and found the summary... totally boring. The reviews helped me run away faster :D

Haha, I was a little unsure if it would actually be bad because I've seen a few reviews other places that made it sound good. But I don't even think Beautiful Disaster should have been published to start with

Marah (eyreo) I disliked Sense and Sensibility too. I can't even get through it. I may change mine out for a different one too.
I like all the other Jane Austen that I've read, but S&S will not pick up.

Monique | 34 comments I liked all her other books too. This one seems almost like it was written by someone else
