A quick overview of how my rating system works:

Strongly Recommended – A great book that I found engaging and entertaining. I may or may not have read through the night to see how it ended and/or immediately bought more works in the series or by the same author.

Recommended – A very good read, one that I possibly had a few quibbles with, but overall an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

Recommended IF – Still a good story, but I had some reservations. Under certain circumstances, it might be just the book you’re looking for.

Not Recommended – I didn’t like it, didn’t find many redeeming qualities about it, and decided that life was too short to encourage people to read it when there are so many great books out there.
