On My Bookshelf

Below are three lists of books – ones I’ve read, some I hope to read very soon, and others I just couldn’t finish. Go ahead, browse the titles. Perhaps you’ll find something new to love.
Linked titles will direct you to a book review. Note: I’ve tried to keep all books by the same author grouped together.

Always remember: You don’t have to love everything an author writes just because you loved one book or series by said individual.

DNFs

In an effort to be completely transparent about my reading habits, I’ve decided to add a new DNF section. Or, books I Did Not Finish. I doubt I’ll do blog posts explaining my reasons, as that sounds more like a YouTube thing that I just don’t do. But I wanted to include them on this page as well.
