I started blogging last October 2011.

The Harry Potter series by far! I would just love to live at Hogwarts and be friends with Harry, Ron, Hermonie, and Luna. Lots of fun adventures!

6. If you could unread any book, what would it be and why?

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I saw the trailer and cannot wait to see the movie! I have always heard great things about this book.
