Book Reports (57)...

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).

* 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].

Darkness, by Karen Robards -- recommended for those who like a thriller setup, those who like Karen Robards, and those who like a dual fight between survival from the elements and survival from hired killers -- Pocket Books, 12/16

(This was an easy read, and I liked it. I personally prefer thrillers which also have a mystery/suspense component, and this was kind of missing that aspect. Still, it was entertaining, and as I read it on the plane, it definitely kept my interest.)
