  1. I tried reading The Time Traveler’s Wife (under perennial favourites)and I made the mistake of watching the movie half way through it. I didn’t like the ending and was so disappointed so I stopped reading it. When telling my friend Shayna, who lent me the book, that I could no longer pick it back up she reprimanded me for breaking the never-watch-the-movie-while-reading-the-book rule lol. She also mention A LOT that the movie did even touch upon. So, I’ll be picking the book up a second time. Thanks for sharing this list! I shall consult it for my next read.
