Imogen: Rosemary Hathaway from Vampire Academy. She’s fabulous.

VEGEMITE: A BOOK THAT YOU LOVE BUT EVERYBODY ELSE HATES.

Sue: Actually I hate Vegemite – licking the road would taste better. So how about a book that I hate that everyone else loves? The Book Thief. I didn’t like the way the story was told. The narrator’s voice seemed forced. The ending was so bleeding obvious I think I groaned out loud.

Imogen: I’m with Sue for the whole Vegemite thing. I can’t stand Sabriel by Garth Nix.
