Books I’ve Read & Enjoyed

I am trying to make a list of books I’ve read and enjoyed in recent years. My humble rating of each book is in the brackets. Perhaps you can use this as a “to read” list for yourself, if you like. I’ll spare you the parenting and baby book titles that take up most of my time these days!

Can you list all the books you’ve ever read?
Do you agree with my ratings? Why or why not?
