Acerca da Minha Biblioteca
My collections are fairly incomplete, as I add in spurts and often don't include books I dislike. Observers will notice a heavy bent towards fantasy and science fiction, beloved books from elementary school onwards. Now, I'm branching out a bit more.

My library collection only contains books that I've started reading and enjoyed. My wishlist is exactly that, although it's probably five years out of date. My to read collection contains books which either I or my library own but which I haven't read yet. My "Yikes or Meh" collection consists of books which I have read but which I do not want included in recommendations or member connections, mainly because I found them less great than everyone else seems to find them.

How I rate:
5 Beloved -- so exciting or dear to me that I can overlook any flaws
4,5 Excellent -- I would recommend to anyone and could explain why for over twenty minutes
4 Very enjoyable -- I would recommend to most readers
3,5 Good -- despite flaws, I would recommend to readers who enjoy the genre
3 Pretty good -- it's overall enjoyable but any recommendation involves multiple caveats
2,5 Okay -- some interesting ideas but the execution fell a little flat for me and I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it.
2 Disliked -- it might have several good aspects but they are balanced by just as many annoying or frustrating ones.
1,5 Poor -- it has serious flaws and I predict that most readers similar to me would not like it, despite some potentially good features.
1 Yikes -- stay away from this one. From conception to execution it failed.
0,5 No -- I can't find anything good to say about this book. It's incoherently bad.
