I make a point to keep my reviews spoiler-free so that anyone can read them without worries. If there is something I absolutely need or want to discuss, I’ll make sure to give you plenty of warnings so you can steer clear.
That said, I thought an easy-to-browse list of titles was the best way to go for this page. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page for a quick guide to my rating system.

My rating system:
This book made me angry, and not in a good way; I hated it. Maybe I didn’t even finish it.
This book was okay, I didn’t hate it and didn’t love it, but I reached the end. Might have been just underwhelming or plain disappointing.
I liked this book, but it’s not something I’ll go back to and I’ll probably forget most about it in a few weeks. If it’s the first in a series, I might read the sequel.
I really liked this book. It could have been a favourite, but something didn’t click with me. Might be the characters, the plot, or maybe just the writing style. I might reread it in the future if I feel like it.
A favourite. Not necessarily perfect, but it hit me the right way and I loved it. Unforgettable, will read again and again in the future.
