This website
For the entirety of my life, I have had an unquenchable passion for books. The quote above, from the United State's third president, with a personal addition, says it all. I truly believe that the written word is as vital as food and water. Sharing love of books with others is something I have a gift for, and that's what this website is all about. My friends are constantly asking me the eternal question, "What should I read next?". When describing books to them, I found myself comparing books to food. And that's how this website was born. 

But what make this website different than every other book review website out there?

Reading is a such a rich experience that so many people miss because they simply read the same kinds of books over and over again. Believe it or not, while young adult novels may be enjoyable, there are far better things to be savoured. The government has released a new visual for a well-balanced diet. It's called MyPlate. 

This is the premise upon which I have based my book review concept. I believe that each book offers something different in shaping a person's intellect. Some books are well-worth reading because they are educational, others because they make you think, and still others because they offer a new point of view. It is important that every single person has a well-balanced literary diet.

It is my suggestion that when creating your to-read list, you select a book from each category. That way, you're sure to have a plateful of delicious, scrumptiously satisfying reads.


My reviews are not formal. They are not professional, and rarely analytical. What I do here is record my opinions and views on books that I have read, and make recommendations based on those musings. When I write here, I write as if to a friend. That's one of the things that makes this site unique.

There are several things you might want to be familiar with before you peruse this website:

These are the novels that I am reading this week. I encourage you to read along, and to follow my thoughts on Twitter @VsReadingPantry.


This book was amazing. It made me laugh, it gave me new perspective, it was fascinating, or all three.

This book was excellent. Not perfect, but pretty close

This book was great. Not necessarily a favorite, but I will definitely read it again. 

This book wasn't bad. Not the best, but better than most.

This book was meh. Didn't make much of an impression on me.

This book was not good. Not bad, but certainly not good.

This book was terrible. Poorly written, boring plot, and probably quite a bit of raunchy language.

This book was absolutely and completely horrid. Positively dreadful. Do not read it.
