Book Reports (102-103)...

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].

complicit **
Complicit, by Stephanie Kuehn -- recommended for those who enjoy psychological thrillers/mysteries, those who enjoy male POVs, and those who don't mind unreliable narrators and ambiguous endings -- St. Martin's Griffin, 6/14

blackice ****
Black Ice, by Becca Fitzpatrick -- recommended for those who enjoy fast-paced thrillers, those who don't mind somewhat selfish/spoiled/immature MCs, and those who like romance (under pressure) -- Simon & Schuster, 10/14

Currently Reading: I started an e-galley by Kirsten Gier

On Deck: many more...that's what a week off work is for, right?
