Book Reports (76-79)...

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].

Infected, by Sophie Littlefield -- recommended for those who enjoy sci-fi thrillers, those who like loyal teen romance, and those who don't mind weak parents -- Delacorte Press, 1/15

(R) *****
When, by Victoria Laurie -- highly recommended for those who enjoy solid (and angsty) teen paranormal thrillers -- Disney-Hyperion, 1/15

(R) *****
The Testing, by Joelle Charbonneau -- highly recommended for those who enjoy dystopic teen thrillers with intelligent characters -- Harcourt Brace, 6/13

What Waits in the Woods, by Kieran Scott -- recommended for those who enjoy suspense thrillers (teen), those who don't mind a little teen over-reacting, and those who are okay with less in-depth characters -- Point, 3/15
