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

About my libraryMy Library represents books that have shaped my reading/writing life. 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. Highly recommended.
4.5★ - Almost perfect or highly influential. Highly recommended.
4★ - Powerful, important, or great fun. Recommended.
3.5★ - Good, with just a few flaws. Recommended.
3★ - Lightweight or slightly disappointing. Recommended with reservations.
2.5★ - Flawed or unmemorable. Not recommended.
1-2★ - Unengaging; may not have finished. Not recommended.
.5★ - The worst of the worst.
