'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

  15. Ooh The 5th Wave! That has been on my TBR list for a long time! And now that it's finally here I just haven't had the free time to read it! I saw Taking Back Forever and Secret for a Song on NG, but decided to be good and not get them. I look forward to hearing what you think! Happy reading!
