Books I Have Read (By Rating)

This is a list of all of the books I have ever read (excluding Kidlit, which has its own page).  They are listed by rating, and under the rating heading they are in alphabetical order.   You will see that I have read a lot of psychology, sociology, education, and religious texts that have had to do with college and because these topics still fascinate me. When I have more patience I will try to also organize it by genre.

  1. Atonement is in the 1001 books you have to read before you die! How? Why?. I don't know.I too tried reading it but it was just too...(i really have nothing to say)
    the amount of books that you've read is really good though!

  2. Ugh, I know what you mean. I STRUGGLED through Atonement. It was really hard because I already seen the movie, so it was hard to make myself slog through all the little details when I knew what was going to happen in the end anyway - and I didn't like it.

    Btw, I found your blog while searching for a guide to "30 Day Book Challenge" on Tumblr. Thanks! :)
