Ooh, I'd love to do this challenge. I love Shakespeare ... Unfortunately I've got way too many challenges I'm already struggling to keep up with.

Good luck, hun :-D Any idea on what plays you'll read/watch yet? :-)

Ceri, I know I'm planning on reading a couple of novel adaptations. There's one called Lady MacBeth's Daughter by Lisa Klein releasing in October. And another called Hamlet by John Marsden. And I'd like to read Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors and maybe The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper.

As far as movies go, I want to watch 10 Things I Hate About You.

But of course I'd like to read one or two Shakespeare plays.
