Virginia Luna | 46 comments Hola a todos, se que este grupo es en inglés pero me encantaría encontrar más personas de habla hispana que les guste leer literatura clásica o cualquier otra cosa que no sea YA Novels que al parecer eso es el único género que esta de moda en mi país y a ser sincera lo detesto
