I know I’m never going to write detailed reviews of all the books I read. Largely this is because I simply don’t have time. There are too many books out there which I want to read, or am reading.

Instead, I will provide a monthly snapshot of my Read and Recently Acquired books alongside what I’m currently reading and a Proper Review later in the month, which may or may not be taken from the Recently Read list. Of course, these lists probably won’t match up, month by month – I can’t be the only person to buy books which leap the reading queue.

By and large, unless specifically stated, assume the Recently Read list to be recommendations. I don’t normally finish books I dislike, so won’t include them on my list.
