  1. I hated "A Wrinkle in Time" too. You're definitely not alone in that. It was superlatively creepy.

    I'll have to read some of these books now. :)

  2. i love this post, i may have to answer these questions sometime in the very near future. :)

  3. Oooooh what wonderful answers!

    I totally LOVED The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. One of my friends bought it for me a couple of birthdays ago and I read it in one sitting. The fact that he writes it through blinking. Incredible :)

    I'm glad you liked the article too. Yay! xxx

  4. tag, you're it! :0)

  5. great post my dear, i just finished readin time travellers wife on holiday and i loved it! havent seen the film althou i hear its disappointing compared to the book, i cried my eyes out at the end! xo
