About meWriter, reader, mother, cook, geek, cynical idealist.

About my libraryMy Library represents books that have shaped my reading/writing life. It doesn't include every book I've read, or indeed every book I own, just those books that for some reason I consider significant to me. I've tried to write at least a brief review of every book I've read since 2001.

I use the ratings to assess both how much I liked the book and also how significant it was in my overall reading life. Therefore, perfectly good but forgettable books may fall down to the bottom of the scale, while not perfect but very significant books may float to the top.

5★ - Mind-blowing or vastly entertaining. Highly recommended.
4.5★ - Between good and great--still deciding. Highly recommended.
4★ - Powerful, important, or great fun. Recommended.
3.5★ - Entertaining but likely forgettable. Take it or leave it.
3★ - Not bad, not good, just meh.
2.5★ - Not necessarily terrible, but flawed.
2★ - Abandoned it--boring or poorly written or just not the book for me.
1-1.5★ - Poor. Not recommended.
0.5★ - The worst of the worst. Laughably bad.
