You must have good taste, lol.
haha but of course
We need to have a serious talk. How old were you when you read "Of Mice and Men" and "Frankenstein"??? These are both in my top ten best books of all time. Give them a reread. I think you'll be surprised...
of mice and men in ninth grade, and frankenstein the summer before senior year...it might be because i had to read them for school and not for my own enjoyment. frankenstein wasn't too bad. maybe i'll give it another try sometime
