Book Reviews

Below is an index to all the books I've reviewed here on my blog since August 2008, alphabetized by title and genre, as well as by author. Following that is my most current Book Review Policy.

YA = Young Adult

GR = also posted on Goodreads (this is mainly as a way for me to keep track of which book reviews I have remembered to post over there)

Rating System (1-5 stars)
1 star - I didn't like it
2 stars - I thought it was just OK
3 stars - I liked it and thought this was a pretty good read, despite a few issues
4 stars - I really liked it and would strongly recommend it
5 stars - I thought this was amazing and highly recommend it
