I just finished #1 Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. I rate it an 8.

I'm currently reading Starship Troopers which I had hoped to finish today but I took Mom out shopping instead! I'm hoping to pick up #1 To Ride Pegasus from the Library this week. The 2nd book of the series is bookwyrmmes science fiction book of the month for Jan. I'm planning on reading all three books in the series. The fantasy book for the month is Robert Jordan's #1 Eye of the World which I don't particularly want to read. I've already checked it out from the library but find myself reluctant to start reading it.
I'm taking #1 A Tree of Death by Marcia Muller to work with me tonight.

Book Rating System

I've come up with a new 1-10 book rating system for me to use this year:

10. A book that filled me with emotions; either energized my spirits, brought tears to my eyes or sent chills down my spine. I can hardly wait for the next book by this author.
9. A book that touched my emotions. I know I’ll be reading and recommending this book.
8. A good book. It really caught my imagination.
7. A pretty good book. I liked it.
6. A book that’s either part of a series or by an author I enjoy otherwise just an okay book.
5. An average book. It was okay.
4. Not a very good book.
3. A lousy book. Why did I choose to finish it?
2. I couldn’t finish this book.
1. I tossed this book away without finishing it.

What do you think?
