2008 Reading Journal

2008 was when I started keeping a list of what I was reading and the following is the whole list from 2008.  I wanted to post it to share a record of my reading habits of the last 2 years and to also link it up to my Reading Journal page. I’ll also link each title to any reviews I have posted or will post in future (Old School Thursdays reviews).


Rating System

1 – Awful and I would like my time back

2 ♥♥ – On the crap side yet I can still stomach it. Or it’s absolute trash, but entertaining because it’s so trashy.

3 ♥♥♥ – Average. It either had a good story line, but wasn’t written well, didn’t rock my world enough, or I can’t decide how I feel about it.

4 ♥♥♥♥ – Entertaining and hard to put down.

5 ♥♥♥♥♥ – Can’t stop thinking about it during reading and/or after reading because of the content, delivery, how entertaining it was, or how well it was written.
