  1. Great list, Mari(by the way Mari is my real name ;))!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. THere are some lovely books on your list that I have loved too.

  3. Stephen King's "It" is popular! Lol. My Stephen King book was "The Shining," which scared me out of my senses when I read it for the first time.

  4. jspeyton-I can't remember if I have read The Shining. I may have to get myself a copy and read it.

    Ladybug- Yay. Not many are named Mari, of course mine is short for Maribel. What I think is funny is that my mom's nickname for me is mariquita which is spanish for ladybug! Is that the reason for your online name?

    Scrapgirl- I think we have very similar tastes in books. :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
