Book reports and updated website...

Basically I change my website every few months because I like playing with that kind of thing. BUT this time I did it for a good reason (let's hope): I've heard from good sources that I shouldn't make people scroll...so now I don't think anyone will have to scroll. It's much simpler, with the same basic content. Feel free to check it (I'd love if you did) and let me know what you think -- I don't mind honesty at all, even if it's along the lines of, "Yuck, that's the worst thing I've ever seen!" ;) Just tell me exactly what you hate, if you don't mind, heh.

Okay, on to the book reports:

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 will read it again.
**** I read at least 95% of the book and it was good.
***** I read every word, and I loved it!

13 Reasons Why, Jay Asher **** (Very well done, as most of you know -- and it kept me thinking about it for a long time after I finished. Well worth my time in reading!)

Utopia, Lincoln Child **** (Fun book -- if you like Michael Crichton, I think you'd enjoy this -- I'll definitely read it again.)
