A Shelf Full of Book Reviews

I've reviewed a lot of books over the years, both fiction and non-fiction, on a variety of subjects. I've compiled lists of my book reviews before, but it's been a long time, so the ones I've already published aren't up to date anymore. Time for a new one. This one includes all the reviews I've posted on this blog as well as on the Minoan Path blog. You can find my older book reviews on my old blog here.

Note: I really have read all the books I've reviewed (not just skimmed them), and these are my honest opinions. I don't generally review books that I wouldn't recommend to anyone, so most of my reviews tend to be positive(ish). For an explanation of my ethos regarding book reviews, have a look here.

Happy reading!
