My Ratings of Books without having to read an in depth analysis. Updated throughout the month. Ratings go from 1 to 5 kittens with hamsters being used for half ratings, because no one wants to think about half a kitten.
Erasure by Percival Everett – Five out of Five Kittens. I’d definitely suggest this to someone who wanted a “deep” or “complex” read. Not so much a reading for fun, casual time book, so I would not suggest for a novice reader who is not wanting to spend their reading time examining the implications of what they are reading. Also prepare for vulgar language as a literary device used this book to make a larger point.
Nightwing V.1-5 (The New 52) – Three out of Five Kittens and a Hamster. Fast paced, fun read. Good to learn about Dick Grayson if you don’t know a lot about his history, and don’t want to jump in half way through. Aspects of the characters and reactions to situations can be seen as cliche and overdone, but overall, enjoyable with good artwork.
Wifey 101: Everything I Got Wrong After Finding Mr. Right by Jamie Otis with Dibs Baer – Two out of Five Kittens. An autobiography by reality star, Jamie Otis, most known for being featured as a contestant on The Bachelor and on the first season of Married at First Sight. My biggest issue with the whole book was the style of writing was too conversational and chaotic. It would constantly shift in time from one story to the next, interrupting a story with another story, then moving into another story and then going back to the first one, which at that point you’d almost forgotten. Because of this reason, I could barely get myself to finish the book, and could not give it higher than 2.
