Celine  Dubios (celinedubios12) | 21 comments What if you have read the whole series of the book shown and the first three of the second series ?


message 7: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 3050 comments Mod
Then those books don't count unless you read them again. But there is a genre of romance so any romance book you read will count for the challenge :)


message 8: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Kelly, you could either do a reread, or just focus on the books you haven't read and the genre books.

Would The Mortal Instruments count as romance?


message 13: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments I would consider that romance.

That's what I thought because of how it went down in the third book lol.
