Book Reports (124-127)...

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].

Site Meter

Jubilee Manor,by Bethany Hagen -- recommended for those who enjoyed the first one (Landry Park), those who like social injustice stories, and those who like mystery -- Dial, 8/15

Reborn, by Jennifer Rush -- highly recommended for those who enjoy the series (Altered), for those who like Jason Bourne-type action thrillers, and for those who like sweet romance and male POVs -- Little, Brown BFYR, 1/15

School for Sidekicks, by Kelly McCullough -- recommended for those who like super heroes, those who don't mind a younger-feeling hero (this felt more tween-like to me), and those who like heroic antics -- Feiwel & Friends, 8/15

Fit to be Tied, by Mary Calmes -- highly recommended for those who liked the first one (All Tied Up), those who like male/male (adult) romance, those who like U.S. Marshal/law enforcement drama, and those who don't mind (brief) descriptions of torture -- Dreamspinner Press, 9/15

Currently Reading: Rook

ON Deck: I really need to read the next Michael Vey book...make that the next two (as the most recent just arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and I still haven't read the previous one)...
