Official Book List

This is a list of all notable books I’ve read in 2013-2018 with the ratings, and sometimes comments, I gave. Feel free to look up these books for yourself, but as a disclaimer, just because a book is on my list does not mean that it is 100% appropriate for everyone.

I rate with a 1-5 scale 
1 = horrible
2 = ehhh, not sure about this
3 = average
4 = pretty good

Also feel free to check back semi-regularly because I will update the list as soon as I finish a new book or as soon as I remember :) 

If you would like more information about a book that I have read, please let me know in a comment and I will try my best to answer your questions.
