I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.
My ratings system:
5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.
4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.
3 stars - LIKED; may or may not read again ... someday.
2 stars - MEH; no plans to read again.
1 stars - I didn't enjoy the story and was lucky to finish.
0 stars - I couldn't or wouldn't finish for reasons that may or may not be listed in the review box.
Rating: 3 of 5
Ghost Story was okay. The pace and plot were slow-going, and the last three chapters ... awfully convenient. The book probably could've been about 150 pages shorter and still accomplished its goal. I definitely could've done without all the time spent on memories as well as Molly's Star Trek world. Perhaps I just need to take a break from Harry Dresden for a couple years in order to renew my appreciation for his charm and chaos. Too much of a good thing and all that. So, overall, not my fave novel of the Dresden Files, but I'll still pick up the next one.
