My Bookshelf

**I haven’t kept up with this list but didn’t want to take it down in case someeone was looking for a book to read.  A great place for book reviews is here**

So talking with my BFF she had a brillant thing going with keeping track of the books that she reads.  seriously genious. And although I will never be able to remember every single book I have ever read in my life I figured getting a list going would be a good start.  PLUS it would help me keep track of the 101 books I need to read for my 101 goals in 1001 days

Oh, and since I love to review things so much and give my thoughts on books I am going to rate them on a number scale.  0-4 star rating.  {0} = oh gosh I didn’t finish the book it was THAT bad. {1} I finished the book, but not before it took a piece of my soul! HA! {2} average book and it was somewhat enjoyable. plot, characters, or ending could have been better. {3} really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to someone looking for a new book to read {4} blew my socks off! Couldn’t put the book down and probably didn’t speak to my husband or go to bed until it was finished! fabulous!

NOTE: Just to get some background information of the type of reader that I am: I really enjoy romantic books that are lighter reads such as Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, Jodi Picoult.  I also enjoy a good thriller, whodunit book from time to time.  Supernatural books, political books, and spy or war books are never really on my reading list–but I have been trying to diversify my reading.  oh and i hate history. {sad, but true}
