Book Reports (65-71)...

For those of you who happened to Google your title and ended up here, please know that one star is not a bad thing in Robin's world -- just the fact that I picked up your book and started it means that somewhere it's getting good buzz (or that your blurb was really cool).

* I didn't make it beyond the first 20 pages.
** I made it to the end, but I either skimmed or skipped large sections.
*** I might have skipped/skimmed, but I liked it and might read it again.
**** I read at least 95% of the book and it was good -- probably will be reread.
***** I read every word, and I loved it! A favorite and definite reread.

This year, I'm only going to list the stars and a brief recommendation for the type of readers I think will enjoy the book [(R) means it's a re-read; [] means it's an ARC].

Mr. Popsalos, by Lisa Worrall -- highly recommended for those who like adult male/male romance, those who like sweet love stories, and those who like a bit of angst thrown in -- Dreamspinner Press, 12/14

****
Unshakeable Faith, by Lisa Worrall -- recommended for those who like adult male/male romance, those who like amnesia tales, those who like mysteries, and those who don't mind a bit of personality fluctuation -- Dreamspinner Press, 11/11

(R) *****
Souffles at Sunrise, by MJ O'Shea and Anna Martin -- still highly recommended for those who like adult male/male romance, those who like foodie (and TV competition) tales, and those who like sweet love stories -- Dreamspinner Press, 2/15

Clearly I'm going through a male/male romance kick -- many of these were very good, and I like stories where characters show vulnerability to the reader and to each other. Most of these did that very nicely. :)
