* 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].
[Fourth Dimension, by Eric Walters -- recommended for those who enjoyed the Rule of Three trilogy, those who like YA sci-fi, and those who like strong female leads -- Penguin Teen, 2/18]
(This was a fun read, and although not very tense, it flowed easily. I found all the characters likable, and the world situation is interesting (just as it is in Rule of Three -- it's the same incident and the same world). If there's another, I will definitely pick it up.)
