Books Read, Books Reviewed

Being the avid reader (and book lover) that I am, I thought perhaps a few persons would be interested to know what I’m reading/recently read and what I thought. I’ll try to keep this updated regularly.  So far, and in no particular order here’s a listing of the books I’ve read recently and a link to my review (if there is one).

Note: Consider this a spoiler warning for all my fiction reviews simply because it’s hard to talk about a book without giving something away… or because the reason I like/dislike the book is a key plot point. It really just depends upon the book how many plot details I give away, and there are varying opinions as to what constitutes a spoiler, so to be safe, I will say they all contain spoilers.
