* 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].
See How They Run, by Ally Carter -- highly recommended for those who liked the first one, for those who don't mind a slightly (maybe?) unreliable narrator (who's also a bit whiny), and for those who like some nice plot twists and turns -- Scholastic Press, 12/15
Cry No More, by Linda Howard -- recommended for those who enjoy adult romantic suspense, those who don't mind a rather slow build-up, and those who like happy (though delayed) endings -- Ballantine Books, 4/04
The List, by Siobahn Vivian -- recommended for those who don't mind serious angst, those who like multiple POV, those who don't mind numerous unlikable characters, and those who like social experiments -- Scholastic, 3/14
[Yes, Chef, by Alex Cohen -- recommended for those who enjoy foodie/restaurant tales, those who like male/male romance, and those who enjoy novellas -- Less Than Three Press, 1/16]
[Getting Him Back, by K.A. Mitchell -- recommended for those who enjoy NA (New Adult) male/male romance, those who don't mind somewhat shallow feelings, those who like redemption stories, and those who like college tales -- Carina Press, 2/16]
Obsidian, by Jennifer L. Armentrout -- highly recommended for those who like alien stories, those who like teen romance, and those who like good versus evil paranormal tales -- Entangled, 5/12
Floodgates, by Mary Calmes -- recommended for fans of adult male/male romance and for those who don't mind slightly unreliable narrating as a suspense tool -- Dreamspinner Press, 12/14
Prey, by Michael Crichton -- highly recommended for Crichton fans, for those who like adult thrillers (techno-thriller, in this case), those who like insightful descriptions, and those who like novels that stretch your mind a bit -- HarperCollins, 5/02
Currently Reading: Well, I'm re-reading some books while I wait for holds to come in at the library...still fun, though.
