***** = Great! I'll probably want to re-read it again! Absolute book love! Recommend it to everyone I know!
**** = Really Good! I might re-read it someday... Only minor flaws (if any)! Probably recommend it to people I think might like it!
*** = Good! A worthwhile read but nothing special... Flawed but not bad enough to keep me from recommending it to someone if they ask.
** = Okay! Hit or miss, some major flaws, probably won't recommend to people.
* = Bleck! If I was able to finish it I definitely won't be recommending it anyone anytime soon...
no stars = Loathed it- 'nough said!
What I Read
I'll read: the classics, biographies and memoirs, cookbooks, DIY and craft/hobby, travel, technology, comics and graphic novels, historical fiction and non fiction, mysteries, thrillers, pulp, true crime, horror, some non fiction and occasionally contemporary fiction (if it something that has been recommended to me), "coffee table" books (like art and photography), family history books.
I won't read: science fiction (maybe someday, I really want to love sci-fi), "chick lit," fantasy, Harlequin and romance in general, religious fiction and non fiction, anything contemporary political, self-help, new age, sports, teen/young adult and children's fiction.
