What I’m Reading

The title, author, genre, and my rating of each book I read. To give an idea of my ratings, I’ve only ever given four five-star ratings (for the record, they were Gone With the WindThe Count of Monte Cristo, A Clockwork Orange, and Hamlet). I generally enjoyed reading books rated three stars and above. I do not include explanations for my ratings, but if you’re curious, you’re welcome to ask me.
