Books in 2014 (Part 2)

Hey all you bookish people, MechEngie here with the promised Part-2 to my 2014 adventures! 

With the tree down, the decorations in the attic, large family-based seasonal festivities drawn to a close, and my butt back on Campus, that means it's time to list every single book I've read in 2014!

This includes quite literally everything - novellas, school books, you name it. If it's in book format and I read it cover to cover, it's here. Also, the books are listed in no particular order. I could probably arrange them into the order I read them, but that would take too much time and effort. 

Rereads are marked with a "Re:' before the title. 
If it's a sequel, its series is named after it, as well as which installment it is.

Following the title is my rating of the book, if applicable. Please note that my rating scale is *very* different from what other people do. I don't use a linear 5 or 10-start system thing. Bumping a book from an 8 to a 9 takes much more improvement than bumping from a 7 to 8, and any one mistake is enough to make the book not a perfect score. 

To give you a little key:
6 and under: Varying degrees of awful. 7 is usually my floor rating. 
7: It was meh. 
8: It was good, but not the best. 
9: Will definitely recommend to friends, really freaking good, I loved it. 
10: Perfection in book form. 

Naturally, if something has a .5 after its number it means it's between the two - like a 7.5 means it was between meh and good. 8.5 means it was good, but not REALLY good, and 9.5 is pretty much there was one or two small things keeping it from that illusive 10. 

Some ratings have reasons why after them, too! And stuff!

And now... in no particular order, BOOKS!
