Andrez (andrez-ssi) what if weve already read some of those?

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) You don't have to read them over unless you just want to :).

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments for one, they all look like books for people older than me, and have a million other things I'm reading now


message 5: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) IDK what age group they all are. I would think YA. And I understand about having too many other things you're CRing.


message 6: by Ayunda (new)

Ayunda (ayundabs) I've only read Frankenstein so far, but I'm hoping I can read other books such as Wuthering Heights and The Scarlet Letter (because I already have the books)


message 7: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments my sister would probably win this because she has to read some of those books for school


message 8: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Well, that seems like a great reason to haev to read the books :).

Ayunda: I have The Scarlet Letter, but I don't think I will have time to read it. I will try, though :).
