Hello hello helloooooooo lady! Ladies. I’m clawing my way out of a ~seven year reading slump, and I figured I’d do something new. At the end of each month I’m going to list what I’ve read in the prior month. (This will *knocks on wood* give me enough time to update Goodreads, which is something I’m determined to do this year. Cuz I swear I’m fucking re-reading books without knowing it >.<)
In no real particular order… these are the books I read in January 2015. (This isn’t an exhaustive list … because certain books it was so complicated even a simple listing would be too much trouble.) I’ve been on a total Entangled Brazen kick. Somebody stop me. I’m just going to list the title, author, and grade. If I said anything more, it’d be in GoodReads.
I also need to [re]write out the ALBTALBS grading scale… but for now, this works.
A = AMAZING. You loved it. You want everyone to read it. Even you dog. If s/he could read. Hell, you’ll read it to your dog.
B = a really good book. You enjoyed it, and recommend it. You’ll also definitely be reading more books by the author
C = a good book and enjoyable read, but an average book. You liked it, but it’s nothing to write home about. Nothing wrong with it, it just wasn’t to the next level
D = there were definite issues with the book
F = you flat out hated the book and kinda wish it hadn’t been written. you’re a little pissed that you wasted your time reading it

I hope you found this interesting. 🙂 I had fun – it totally reminded me that I want/need to keep Kimberly Dean’s Courting series on my radar! And … despite my ridiculous love of tags, I’m not going to tag each book/author … I don’t think because O_O That’ll be like a book.
What books have you read? Were there any stand outs? Any recommendations? Have you read any of the books I read?
