Books

This is a page about the books that I have read recently, my ratings, and books I am currently reading. If you would like a review of a book on this list, just post a comment and I'll try to write one soon!

If the book has offensive content to me it will drop from a higher rating to a lower rating no matter if the plot is vibrant and the writing amazing.

My rating system:
1-4= Awful. Bad content, bad plot. Just awful.
5-7= Tolerable, I suppose, but not handsome enough to tempt me. Worth reading once.
8-10= Great book! Worth owning and reading over and over and over and over again!
