    Tips and advice?

    Tbqh I haven't read that many books in my lifetime. Many of the books I've read are from childhood/ teens so I doubt they want to hear about those? I'm wondering, could I possibly risk Anne of Green Gables? It's my favourite book from childhood and some consider it a classic? I'm reading the bell jar atm which is pretty good but the connection is not as strong obviously, although I am enjoying it.

    Still, are we focusing on one book or many? I've seen some people have been comparing books? 0__0 why?

    Really quite stuck on the whole notion of this 'personal statement' and it's really stressing me out.

    Any help is much appreciated :-)
