Book List/Review Index

For years I have noted on bookmarks, in the backs or margins of notebooks, on little scraps of paper, and yes, even tried to just remember the titles of books I heard about that I wanted to read. Inevitably, when I'm wanting to read a book, I usually can't think of anything I want to read (or can't find the one or two titles that I remember). SO, thanks to the beautifully permanent (yet editable) nature of blogs, this is my new reading list.

This is the list of books that I
a) want to read
b) am currently reading
c) have already read but have posted a review about (linked)
I will, of course, update it as applicable. ☺

Please, if you read a book that you think I'd like, please comment and tell me about it!!

Without further ado, here is the list (in vaguely alphabetical order)

[plain text] = want to read
* = currently reading
** = already read, review coming (if I thought it was good enough to warrant a review! If I don't think it's worth recommending, I'll just delete it from the list when I'm done with me there are lots of those!)
[link] =review posted
