Book Reports (46-49)...

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

If you'd like to see my recent four+- and five-star YA recommendations, visit Robin ReadsnWrites.

* 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].

(R) *****
All Kinds of Tied Down, by Mary Calmes -- highly recommended for those who enjoy male/male adult romance and police drama -- Dreamspinner Press, 7/14

Avalon, by Mindee Arnett -- recommended for those who enjoy sci-fi adventure and mystery, those who like slow-moving romance, and those who like space drama -- Harperteen, 1/14

Soulprint, by Megan Miranda -- recommended for those who like reincarnation, sci-fi, mystery, and a determined heroine (along with sweet romance) -- Bloomsbury, 2/15

The Cipher, by John C. Ford -- recommended for those who like a male POV, cyber-thrillers, cons, and those who don't mind a rather distant narrative (with subdued emotions and reactions) -- Viking, 2/15
