Novel novels: May 2010

Um. May was a busy month, but I hadn't realized until now how little I'd read during it. Jaysus.

1. Unclutter Your Life in One Week! by Erin Rooney Doland
  • 4 stars
  • The fairly high rating here is due, I'm sure, to that responsible-adult feeling one gets after reading a responsible-adult-themed self-help book.

2. The SoNo Baking Company Cookbook by John Barricelli
  • 3 stars

3. Winterbirth by Brian Ruckley
  • 3.5 stars

4. Anathem by Neal Stephenson
  • 4 stars
  • Oh, look, a Neal Stephenson book I actually managed to finish! This is the first book I'd been able to check out in our new city (with a temporary card, which I could only use to check out two books at a time), which probably has something to do with the dedication I was able to exhibit.

Scoring system is as follows:
1 star = hated
1.5 stars = didn't enjoy, but didn't hate
2 stars = didn't enjoy particularly
2.5 stars = enjoyed somewhat
3 stars = enjoyed, but might not read again
3.5 stars = would probably read again
4 stars = would like to own a copy
4.5 stars = would like to own a copy, and would probably read occasionally
5 stars = would like to own a copy, and would probably read often
