  1. Love the whole list it made me laugh.

  2. This is a brilliant (and creative) approach to this list! Thanks for the smile!

    1. Thank you, that means a lot. Unlike other library staff, I don't have an English background (mine's in the sciences); it really boosts my blogging confidence to hear that someone enjoyed reading what I wrote.

  3. Your list is epic! Best I have read so far!
    I really need to read The Darkest Minds, I have heard so many good things!
