HAHA sounds fun. I haven't really read any new books but I re-read the entire Twilight
series except for the first book, because Christy still has it (AND HAS HAD IT SINCE
NOVEMBER >:c), Secrets of my Hollywood Life books 1 - 4, Begging for Change, and Narnia:
The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
