Book Reports (26-29) ...

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

***
Finally Falling, by Raleigh Ruebins -- m/m romance -- Devin and Raleigh had crushes on each other (unbeknownst to the other, of course) and are now, after 8 years apart, finally getting the chance to be honest with one another.
