  1. I absolutely hated The Catcher in the Rye. I don’t know why, it just really bugged me…. There are a lot of books there that I also want to read. Anna Karenina included. Do you fancy doing a collaboration of some sort? Maybe a book review and our thoughts on it?

    1. Yep.That would be great! 🙂

      You do know that you’re one of the few people who hate Catcher in the Rye,don’t you? I haven’t read myself but almost everyone cites it as his/her favourite book.That being said,I also know people who didn’t like it and called it overrated!

      As for Anna Karenina,one word: WOW. 🙂
      Funnily enough I have also come across someone who hated this book.So I don’t know if you would like it as much as I did!

    1. Thanks! I hope you enjoyed your visit on my blog!
      Funnily enough The Count of Monte Cristo has always appealed to me until someone who’s read the book told me he didn’t like it.
      But I will definitely give his books a go,especially The Three Musketeers,which surprisingly you call your favourite book! i bet the book is not at all like we see in cartoons!
      I’ve now added it to my read list! 🙂
      Thanks!

  2. Wow, impressive list…good for you! I have a 19 year old son who also loves classics and appreciated your list as well. Keep reading!

Tell me what you think! :)
