Book Meme: 5s

I edited my previous entry before I realized I’d be coming back here to do this, so I’ll say it again. I finally finished Goodbye Tsugumi, and I will be posting that review as well as City of Ember next weekend. Since it’s Banned Book Week, I’ll probably be heading to the library to pick up something on that list (or possibly reading something from my collection), and will be posting a review of it soon. Also, I will be starting After Dark.

I picked up this meme from book_memes on livejournal.
