Best and Worst Books of 2012

January 1, 2013

The title of the post is a bit misleading. This list is a compilation of the best and worst books that I read in 2012, not of books that were published in 2011. As usual, my opinion is just that and isn’t meant to be a final pronouncement about anything. My main goal when reading […]


In a slump

October 14, 2011

I am in the midst of a terrible reading slump right now. There was a point where I had nearly 40 reviews queued up for this blog because I was finishing books faster than I was posting. But those days are long gone. I have maybe two reviews queued up and two that I haven’t […]


Best and Worst of 2010

December 31, 2010

What would a December 31st post be without a Best/Worst list of some sort? I already posted a list for the first half of the year, which you can find right here. These are the Best and Worst titles that I read from July to December of 2010. As usual, these aren’t necessarily books that […]


Holiday Wish List ’10

November 30, 2010

Can you guess what I want for Christmas this year? If you said books, then you’re right on the money! I am always in need of books, books, and more books to read, not only to keep this blog going but also just because I feel lost if I’m not in the middle of two […]


Need a page-turner!

July 3, 2010

I’m looking for a page-turner to read this summer. I’m thinking something along the lines of The Da Vinci Code, where I simply couldn’t bear to put the book down and just had to keep reading to find out what happened next. It’s been a long time since I’ve read something that left me needing […]


Now Reading

May 27, 2010

I’m currently in the middle of several books because none of them has grabbed my attention to a sufficient degree that I want to stick with it until the end. Don’t get me wrong; these still represent a far more interesting option than reading a bunch of acnepril reviews, which I spent almost all of […]


Best and Worst of 2009

December 31, 2009

Well, since everyone else is doing year-end lists, I might as well get in on the fun! I’ll start off by listing the best books I read this year and then get into the ones I hated. Bear in mind that these aren’t necessarily books that were published in 2009, so you might not find […]


“To Read” List — Nov. ’09

November 3, 2009

I’m kind of stuck in no-man’s land in terms of my reading right now. I am in the middle of a bunch of different titles because I can’t seem to find anything to sustain my interest all the way through. As such, I want to make a quick list of the books I’m working on […]


Rating change?

September 9, 2009

I absolutely hate giving up on books. I don’t know why, but I’ll almost always read a book to the end, no matter how disastrously dull or boring it is. I guess as long as there are pages left, there’s hope that the story could suddenly get interesting. So even if reading a page of […]


Need more nonfiction

June 16, 2009

There used to be a time when I read a good deal of nonfiction books along with all the novels I speed through, but it’s been a while since I’ve done that. I should really try to strike a bit more of a balance, though, so I decided to compile a list of nonfiction books […]
