About my libraryWhat Kind of Reader Are You? Your Result: Dedicated Reader You are always trying to find the time to get back to your book. You are convinced that the world would be a much better place if only everyone read more.What Kind of Reader Are You?

Re: Taste
I have an eclectic reading taste. I love SF, romance, erotica, literature, mystery, YA. I would say I don't like westerns, memoirs or when male writers can't write female characters well.

Re: Reviews - If you want to see my thoughs on the book, I keep them under "Comments" - caution spoilers - . My "civilized thoughts" is under the "Reviews". I do not summarize in my reviews, you can read the Amazon description or Harriet Klausner for that. Instead, I try to be straightforward on why the book did or did not work for me.

Own = Bought

★★★ - DECENT. Worth the read, but wouldn't re-read.
★★★★ - GREAT. Must read.
