Quite self-explanatory – I want to read the novels of which many, many movies are based on.
The catch: I must have seen the movies first before I read the novels.
Why? Because I am melodramatic.

I’m going to stop there because the Goodreads list have 45 pages and I’m only on page 5. *sighs* This is one heck of a challenge to start with.
*I half-read a friend’s copy during a private study class oh back when.
+I really probably won’t, to be honest.
>I’m frightened to read this after the movie took me to places I did not dare be taken.
To begin, a tear-jerker:
I’ll make a Goodreads list, don’t you worry, little phantoms. Now, let me enjoy the peace of my beanbag. Landon and Jamie, await!
