Over mijn bibliotheek
At the beginning of 2020, one intention I had was to write a few sentences here for every book I read this year; hence the increase in reviewing which I've continued since. Little did I know that it would be the only intention I was able to maintain in that crapfest of a year. The “reviews” are really for myself, although I will add things that may be beneficial to others as well, such as some content warnings (& people who say they’re not needed can GFY).

I've been deliberately keeping track of each book I've read since 2004 (in an elaborate and anal-retentive system which was streamlined thanks to LT), but there are many others not here that have been lost from my memory. I’ve been adding some as I remember and have been relegating them to decades read rather than specific years. There are quite a number of "library book" tags since I check out so many (hooray for public libraries!), and any audiobook I listen to (I'm learning to really enjoy them) has been checked out from the library as well.

How I star books for myself:
5 stars = Adored it (squee!!!), will reread, likely will buy it if I don’t own it already.
4.5 stars = Loved it, will likely reread, might buy it, missing the internal squee.
4 stars = Enjoyed it, will definitely recommend, but might only buy if I need to complete a collection/series.
3.5 stars = Feel bad about giving it 3 stars but doesn’t deserve 4.
3 stars = A general meh for me, but at least I actually finished the book rather than giving up.
Anything below 3 = Me just playing around with my loathing (but I did finish the book--I don't star any book that I didn't complete).
Over mij
Spinster in my forties; when not reading, I love to hand sew and craft (quilting, cross stitch, crochet), explore art museums, and before the quarantimes I was slowly learning to enjoy domestic travel (haven't made it international yet, although I'm not sure if that will ever happen again).
