Book Review Archive

Welcome to my book review archive, yes I am aware that it is incredibly small and doesn't deserve the name "archive", maybe collection. Measely collection. Oh well, I have set the bar high. Okay, there are now over 100 200 (!) reviews, I think it can be called and archive now :) I feel happy.

I have been reviewing books for almost 2 years, and I've come a long way since then. My reviewing skills have improved, so the reviews that are unformatted and look like a mess do not reflect my current writing style.

Anyways, books are listed in alphabetical order (excluding first words like "the" and "A"). Click here to see my 2011 "book of the month".
