Book Ratings

I want to start to read more often so I decided to bite the bullet and make a book review page! Except it's mostly just ratings and musings about the book for now, so don't expect a plot synopsis for the novels any time soon. Click on the note icon (that I cannot align correctly ugh) to read my thoughts about the book but be aware that my comments will be SPOILER HEAVY!! The more stars a book has, the less likely it is that I spoil the plot.

Also, Goodreads is owned by Amazon and Amazon fucking sucks, so you can read a summary of the plot on the links that will send you to LibraryThing instead. LibraryThing is my preferred Goodreads alternative but it's such a fucking slog to use that I might change the links in the future.

Anything with a ∞ symbol means that I've read it multiple times.

Newest completed reads are towards the top.
