  1. Ooo, I love Speak paired with The Scarlet Letter. And although I haven't read keeping the Castle yet, I think I could see that paried with P&P.

    I found this topic soooo difficult.

  2. I didn't participate this week but I love your list. There are some interesting titles I need to check out :)

  3. Wow. You did really well with this topic! I just totally spaced out when thinking of it and decided to go another route...
