About

Just a way for me to keep track of the books I read!

My book taste is quite diverse and I am certainly not a book snob. I just like what I like. There are some popular books I don’t like and books people hate that I do like, but there you go!

I like fantasy, contemporary fiction, historic novels and all sorts really.  I love books about animals, you know, Watership Down- style. I love Jane Austen. But I do like a bit of Dick Francis every now and again as well, or Agatha Christie! I do read non-fiction as well when I am in the mood for that kind of thing.

My favourite book is ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde. When I read that book, I was absolutely blown away by it.

For book ratings I have gone for a 7-star system, feeling 5 was too few and 10 too many. Just the way I like it! It roughly equates to the following:

★☆☆☆☆☆☆ absolute and utter trash with hardly any redeeming qualities

★★☆☆☆☆☆ yeah, I did not reallly get, but there is probably an element of okayness

★★★☆☆☆☆ it was ok(ish)  and it definitely had bits i liked

★★★★☆☆☆ really quite decent, but may have some issues, or something was missing

★★★★★☆☆ a good read with minor flaws that I could get over

★★★★★★☆ a quite awesome book worth reading again

★★★★★★★ I want to treasure and love this book forever

 

2 stars

What are you reading? What should I be reading? Recommendations always welcome!
