- I love Rebecca's blog and I truly loved her book! It was so funny and heart warming.
30. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James - WTF was that? I had to take a shower after finishing this awful piece of ****. If I have to save myself from a fire, the first book I'd burn would be this one. I picked it up because all my friends kept saying that I remind them of Ana. I honestly regret reading it.

Curently reading:

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - I have to reread it because I want to go and see the movie but I forgot everything about it.
