The Ultimate Book List

~Here is a mostly comprehensive list of the books I’ve reviewed here on SGL. While covering different genres, I do not read anything that has blatant sexual content. I will tell you if there is any sort of such (typically very mild and delicately put) in them and if I don’t think they’d be appropriate for young/teenage readers.

It was hard to know what section to put some of these in, what with cross-over happening so often!  This will be an ever increasing list so check back often! ~
