Book Reports (91-100) ...

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

[Note: Because I've put this off so long, I'm only going to show my rating, a basic description, and link to the GR page. Also, I'm bolding the title/description of those which got 4, 4+, or 5 stars.]

(Part two) -- and yes, I can tell it's summer break. I've also been re-reading some books (doing my practice of reading 4 at once by rotating through), and I only included one of those here, LOL. I wonder if I'll actually make it to 200+ by the end of the year ...
