  1. Great to have you on board! I'm looking forward to reading Dracula most of all, I think. Oh and Phantom of the Opera. I've never read either before so I'm excited!

    I'm not so sure about The Adventures of Tom Sawyer but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Don't forget to link up your reviews :)

    1. Thanks for the warm welcome. I don't know which ones I'm looking forward to most.
