Book Reports -- and a scary thing at the gym...

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!

Whoa, I've gotten a little behind with these -- oops :)

The Second Time Around, by Mary Higgins Clark ** (Can I just say that it's sad how her first few books were so very good, and how these later ones just don't measure up? But then, her first few were *awfully* good.)

Girl at Sea, by Maureen Johnson **** (I love MJ's books, I really do. This was enjoyable, though my favorite remains The Bermudez Triangle.)

Blood Brothers, by S.A. Harazin ****, otherwise known as medwriter (This was an engaging book -- I read it all in one sitting -- I wouldn't say I LOVED it, mostly because my heart ached for Clay, which is a good thing...but I definitely LIKED it.)

Lessons from a Dead Girl, by Jo Knowles ****, otherwise known as jbknowles (Another haunting book that I read in one sitting -- again, I wouldn't call this a favorite, and I don't know if I'll reread it, but wow, the characters really stuck with me!)

The Ice Limit, by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston **** (Very fun read -- I'm a fan ;).

The Golden Unicorn, by Phyllis Whitney **** R (Clearly I'm going through my PW phase. I reread all my books of hers every five or six years, I'd say. My only complaint about her writing is that all of her heroines are super-broody, angsty types. None of them ever seem happy.)
