  1. Nice book lists! I’m also doing the TBR Pile Challenge. I love Neil Gaiman. Haven’t read Stardust though. The movie is so fun, I should. I read Anne of Green Gables for 2014’s challenge. And The Da Vinci Code was one I had a hard time putting down. Happy reading!

    • I watched the Stardust film when I was younger and I can still remember how absolutely amazing it was. I thought it was about time I got round to the book :3 My mum has given me Anne of Green Gables when I was little but I’ve never really wanted to pick it up. She read it and loved it when she was young. How did you like it? I’ve heard good things about The Da Vinci Code but I was always sacred of picking it up because it’s in the adult genre and I don’t like branching out which is really bad…

      Good luck with your challenge!
