* 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 will read it again.
**** I read at least 95% of the book and it was good.
***** I read every word, and I loved it!
The Off Season, by Catherine Murdock **** Okay, so this went a long way toward making up for the previous book of hers I read ;) I couldn't find Dairy Queen, so I went with this instead, and I liked it -- even though the narrator was really scattered (in her telling of the story, I mean). But good story with nice depth and pacing.
Cybele's Secret, by Juliet Marillier ** I obviously don't get these. The story is okay, but the wordiness completely puts me out of the story, and I couldn't make myself actually read it. I guess I'm missing out ;).
the otherworldies, by Jennifer Anne Kogler *** The premise of this is good, and I liked it okay. I kind of guessed where it was all going (but then, I should, as it's MG).
This Must be Love, by Tui T. Sutherland ** This is when I can tell I just grab books off the shelf at the library -- if I'd taken a few seconds to look through this, I would have known it wasn't for me. Too many texts/letters/flyers/etc. (I seem to remember E dancing beside, needing the bathroom.)
unraveling, by Michelle Baldini * I started this, and put it down before the end of the first chapter when the MC was revealed to be a misunderstood teen who wanted to write. *rolls eyes*
vibes, by Amy Kathleen Ryan ***** Okay, this is shocking. I started reading and didn't think I'd like it -- but I couldn't put it down! The MC is sooooo negative, but there's something appealing about her. I really, really like this book.
Betwixt, by Tara Bray Smith ** Meh. I should know by now, I'm not an urban fantasy person. Someone who is would probably really like this (and OTHERWORLDIES, from above).
