Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

To start, I’ve read a lot of classics. But I’ve never read any Jane Austin, Charlotte Bronte, or Emily Bronte. Basically all the books you immediately think of when the word “classic” comes into the conversation.

And there are a lot of classics that are fun and easy to read! Especially when you cheat use some helpful tricks. So if you want to read some classics but don’t really want to read Austin, this is the list for you.
