Reading is my ESCAPE from Reality!

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” 


-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Star Rating System

All the books on my blog are rated according to the following system:

5 stars - LOVED IT! A Must Read.
4 stars - EXCELLENT - Recommended. 
3 stars - GOOD - Entertaining.
2 stars - OKAY - Give it a chance.
1 star - SKIP IT - Almost made reading work.
0 stars - HATED IT - Couldn't even finish it.
I am an avid reader of all types of genres and levels of books (from Children's Books and Young Adult to Stephen King). I really don't like saying to skip a book, but sometimes it can't be helped. :) If the book is from a genre or author that you love, give it a try anyway and let me know what you think.
