  1. James Joyce is such a drag, props on getting through it though. I read Dubliners and that was enough for me! I really want to read The Vampire Diaries; it sounds like it has a lot more depth than Twilight!

    • Thanks, it was nearly torture forcing myself through Joyce!

      I’m definitely a closet Twilight fan (completely aware of the fact that it’s terrible in literature terms) but I also want to read Vampire Diaries!
