My Book Love List

A_reader_lives_a_thousand_lives_before_he_dies.

(Here)Oh I love to read…it’s like my own version of euphoria wrapped in the delicious and tantalizing scent of paper and ink. Below you will find a list of books I’ve read – although I am positive I have missed some (as you can see there are times I went months without logging a book, but rest assured…I was reading! I just forgot to post). I don’t have a particular goal in how many I want to read but it helps me to track how many I am reading – and what. I have often come to check this list before buying a new book because I can’t remember if I read it already or not! I’ve starred them for how much I enjoyed them – * being the least, and ***** being the best!
