  1. Haha...I was right. I only knew a couple of them, and I figured I was wrong. The only one I would have gotten right was #5. I am surprised I was right with that one!

    1. Haha, like I was telling some of the others, I have a feeling I would fail miserably if I participated in a game like this XD Good for you! Yes, I really like that book:D

    1. Haha no worries! I don't know if I would have gotten it either. Did you like TKaM? It's such a sweet story:)
      Thanks! Yes, I have a couple ideas; maybe I'll try a new one each week and see how it goes:D

  3. Fun game! Sorry I missed it. :-) These are some really awesome books, by the way. I haven't read The Book Thief yet, but my best friend tells me I must! And everyone else says it's really amazing.

    I read The Tale of Desperaux several years ago and was completely weirded out. The movie is is also super strange; so sad and creepy and yet cute at the same time. Eeehhhh.

    To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my faaavorite favorite books. Ever. The End. Yup, I'm pretty crazy about it.

    Hmmm, looks like I need to read more classics....;-P

    1. Aw, I'm sorry you did, too! Never fear, more shall be forthcoming:D
      YES, read TBT!! I don't think you'll regret it…;)
      Haha, The Tale of Despereaux takes some adjusting in order to enjoy it. I mean, you have to get over the whole mouse-falling-in-love-with-a-princess for no reason whatsoever. And other things;P I wasn't crazy about it my first time around. I don't think I actually watched the whole movie, but the little bit that I did see displeased me greatly *fumes*

      To Kill a Mockingbird = Atticus, and Atticus = Gregory Peck, so…enough said;) Seriously, though. I've only read it once (gasp!), but I plan to read it again very soon, and I'm thoroughly looking forward to it!:D

      Heehee...

  4. Cool! I actually have read three of those, but they were all a long time ago, so that makes sense why I didn't recognize those three.

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
