Since I've been gone...

Well, I've been a bit on the crazy side lately, and the blog has been the thing to suffer most. Ah well, while I love this space it is definitely more expendable than the kidlets or husband or house or career.

But while I haven't had time to devote myself to writing out reviews, I have still been reading! So now I present, in ratings order, what I've been reading over the last few months!
