The sun is shining, the temperature is above freezing, and I don't have it in me to post a book rant. So I tried to come up with a list of the last twenty books I read (not sure if I got them all).

I rated the books according to the ten point scale of subjectivity that is neither fair nor comprehensible and depends solely on my momentary mood. It spans from 1 (don't bother) to 10 (can't read a second time because I drooled all over the pages and now they stick together which is seriously annoying).

From best to worst:

Johannes Cabal the Necromancer - Jonathan L. Howard 10/10

1Q84 - Haruki Murakami (fantastic transl.: Ursula Gräfe) 9/10

Perdido Street Station - China Miéville 8/10

Wintersmith - Terry Pratchett 8/10

Into the Wild - John Krakauer 7/10

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card 7/10

Fudoki - Kij Johnson 7/10

Good Omens - Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman 7/10

Der Soziopath von nebenan - Martha Stout (Transl.: Karsten Petersen) 6/10

A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini 5/10

Die Essensfälscher - Thilo Bode 5/10

The Time Traveller's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger 5/10

Milchgeld - Volker Klüpfel/Michael Kobr 4/10

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins 4/10

Achtung Baby - Michael Mittermaier 3/10

The Demon's Lexicon - Sarah Reese Brennan 3/10

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms - N. K. Jemisin 3/10

Dresden Files/ Storm Front - Jim Butcher 3/10

Der Schwarm - Frank Schätzing 2/10

High Heels and a Head Torch - The Essential Guide For Girls Who Backpack -2431/10
(Don't judge me; it was a present. After remembering that sad excuse for a book, I almost feel like ranting.)

What do you think? Any books you would have rated differently? Any recommendations now that you know what I like?

I hope you all have a great day.
