Book Reports (1) ...

Because I've had trouble keeping up with my reading, I'm going to change my book report style a bit. Now I'm aiming to write reviews on Goodreads and simply post the link here. But I'm also going to change my star system:

* = Just not for me
** = Interesting premise but not engaging enough to complete
*** = Okay; didn't love but liked enough to finish (or at least skim)
**** = Good; liked the writing style and/or the plot enough to stick with it
***** = Loved; will definitely keep and/or re-read

****
Rated, by Melissa Grey -- YA dystopian (includes LGBTQIA themes); story about six teens living in a world where their ratings (given by grades, popularity, community service, etc) are public knowledge and determine everything (social standing, ability to get a job, housing, etc)
