Book Reports (70-72)...

You know it's spring break when I only read three books. All my spare time was spent working, as the rest of my time was spent with the kiddos or catching up on long overdue household needs.

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 the I picked up your book and started it means that somewhere it's getting good buzz (or that your blurb was really cool). 'R' means it's a re-read.

* 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 -- definitely will be reread.
***** I read every word, and I loved it! A favorite!

Evermore, by Alyson Noel **** I checked this out from the library, as I had to see what the hype was about. I liked it, for the most part. The only thing that I didn't love was the ending...seemed like there were a number of holes in the story which weren't explained -- and Ever solved her Daina (Dalaine? I already returned the book -- oops) problem awfully easily, in the end. But overall, it was intriguing, and I'll definitely be looking for book two! (YA paranormal)

Dead is a State of Mind, by Marlene Perez *** This was okay. Certainly the ideas were unique (an entire town of paranormal activity in various forms). I didn't read the first book in the series, so that might have effected how distanced I felt from the characters -- hard to say. (YA urban fantasy/paranormal)

This Rough Magic, by Mary Stewart R ***** At least a few times a year, I have to reread my Mary Stewarts :) This has always been one of my favs of hers. (adult -- romantic suspense, though mild and certainly could be read by teens)
