Book Reviews 2011-2014

First, let me state that all these "reviews" are of my own opinion and I'm honest. Even if an author or publishers bestows a book upon me, my honor code stays true. Every book will be given 1-5 stars:

5 - Great book. Loved it!
4 - I really liked it!
3 - Eh, it was okay
2 - Errr...not my cup of tea but go ahead and try it out
1 - Not the book for me AT ALL.
