Let me see your Bookish Survey!


  1. So many amazing choices on your list! I LOVED Don't Look Back, Carson was such an amazing character. I can't freaking wait for Winter! I want to read Fairest too but to be honest I'm not that excited about it.
    Anyhow, wonderful picks! :)

  2. I actually read this entire survey. This survey was really lengthy. I really can't wait to read Red Queen. I hope I love it as much as others seem to!

    1. You totally will. But some people don't like it too much because (i agree partially) is boring. It has its parts, but overall it has a lot of action, so not that boring for me to ditch it. Thanks for stopping by!


Comment your opinion, I won't bite and I always reply!
