As a side note, anything 6.5/10 and over isn’t actually a bad score, it’s still 3 stars and up on GR. Noone here made it over 8.9/10… Esme the hardass I guess.


So, after reading 70 books, this is how things are stacking up. The books in green are officially in my top 30.

I am also going to pretend I have “Finalists” I’ll be picking 1/30 books, so 4 books by the end that would have been my top of the top. Like Marks site, dark green is ‘semi-finalist’ and bright green is ‘finalist’
