This list documents (chronicles?) the books I read. I put an X behind those that I recommend and a XX behind those that I highly recommend. Books with one X will likely only be popular with those who are fans of the genre, while XXs are those I’d recommend regardless of genre preference.
I’m not going to try to list all the books I’ve read before. I probably couldn’t come close to remembering them all. Maybe I’ll make note of them if they are related to the ones I list here –series, for instance.
Title and Author (date or approx. date starting the book)
—–What would have been year seven at Hogwarts had Harry, Ron and Hermione gone back to school.
———-Year six of wizard school and Snape has finally become the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher and the Half-Blood Prince helps Harry with his potions.
———-Year five…two words: Delores Umbridge.
———-Year four brings the Quidditch World Cup and the Tri-Wizard Tournament, Mad Eye Moody, and Fleur Delacour.

———-Harry returns for his 2nd year of wizard school and finds someone or something is petrifying students.
———-Harry Potter never gets old. Just great story-telling set in a wonderful world.
—–An interesting take on vampire lore set in modern times with flashbacks that provide glimpses into the history of the real Dracula.
—–A well-paced YA fantasy novel with a great blend of magic, melee, and romance…and a couple twists.
—–A light-hearted, campy, tween fantasy that includes small references and jabs at traditional fairy tales.
—–While some of the stories in this collection are definitely in the horror genre, a lot of them are not very spooky at all, and would serve as a good into for folks wanting to see a bit of Stephen King’s writing without the nightmares.
