Jane Austen Character Book Tag (Original)

I am a massive fan of Jane Austen, and it is almost solely due to her books that I became such a fan of classics in general.

Shakespeare’s Worst Play? Pericles, Prince of Tyre

I have been a great admirer of Shakespeare since high school. I even took an optional class to study his plays in both high school and college.

Manga Series Review: Death Note

Right...where should I start with this series? It's a manga, released from 2003 to 2006. It took the world by storm. By the world, I am being serious. It has prompted many tv and movie adaptations, both in Japan and America.
