  1. Great list! Harry Potter and the deathly hollows was like a roller-coaster of emotions, one my heart nearly survived… and yes! the fifty shades trilogy is one of the worst books I’ve ever read… not just the topic but the writing?! My brain can’t even fathom how those books could have been published…

    • Haha exactly! HP was a major roller coaster.
      I started 50 Shades out of curiosity and didn’t mind the first book THAT much. I read the second and wished I didn’t. Of course at that point I had to read the final one and hated every second of it.
