I'm reading Breaking Dawn now. It's okay. I like it as much as the three before it, and more than the second one, New Moon? What didn't you like? (Bella? I hate Bella!)

Sense and Sensibility- Jane Austen
A Farewell to Arms- Ernest Hemingway


Before anyone throttles me I'm sure they're good books, I just couldn't get through either of them. I tried and just couldn't get into them. I'll try them both again in the future.
