Too Many Books, Too Little Time!!!!

It's been a while since I posted, but not since I last finished a delicious book!  Because I've read so many lately, I decided to give you a quick update on all there is to read out there.

So, below are a series of books I've read recently.  After each, you'll find two letter grades- one for the quality of the writing and one for the quality of the story.  Those that received good grades earned themselves dedicated blog posts in the near future.  Also, I've put stars next to the ones I suggest you read first.  Enjoy!
