Book Reports (132-137)...

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].

Rogue, by Mark Frost -- highly recommended for fans of the series (The Paladin Prophecy), for those who like male POV, for those who like a combo of conspiracy and sci-fi, and for those who like loyalty amongst friends (and adventure) -- Random House BFYR, 9/15

Currently Reading: Sound

On Deck: ~ five sequels (ack)
