  • Jennifer

    Cassie Claire shouldn’t even be on this list, appalling plagiarist she is.

    • anna

      How dare you. I’ve actually met her and we are close friends. And for you to say that… if you are going to be rude could you please give us an example of her plaigerism AND USING WEREWOLVES VAMPIRES AND WARLOCKS is NOT plaigerism because no one has the right to those things and CoB came out in 2005 so its not like she waited for twilight to become popular so please don’t hate
