* 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].
Forgive and Forget, by Charlie Cochet -- highly recommended for those who like male/male, adult romance, those who like amnesia tales, those who like baker boys, and those who like a sweet wrap-up -- Dreamspinner Press, 4/16
Smoke & Mirrors, by Charlie Cochet -- highly recommended for fans of the THIRDS series, for those who like male/male, urban-fantasy romance, those who like law enforcement, and those who like established relationships -- Dreamspinner Press, 7/16
[Garden District Gothic, by Greg Herren -- recommended for those who like solid suspense/mysteries, those who like NOLA tales, those who like male/male/male adult romance, and those who like quirky narrators -- Bold Strokes Books, 9/16]
I have a few re-reads too (in this category), but I've read them a couple times in the past (and posted about them), so I'll leave it for now. :)
