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 the I picked up your book and started it means that somewhere it's getting good buzz (or that your blurb was really cool). 'R' means it's a re-read.
* 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 will read it again.
**** I read at least 95% of the book and it was good.
***** I read every word, and I loved it!
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix R *****
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince R *****
Lucifer's Hammer, Larry Niven ****(This is a great book if you're a disaster junky, like me)
In the Serpent's Coils, Tiffany Trent *** (I actually liked the last quarter of this book very much -- I've already started the sequel, and I'm suspecting it'll get five stars on my weird system)
A Crooked Kind of Perfect, Linda Urban **** (If I was a MG person, I would be all over this book!)
Saving Cascadia, John Nance * (Meh. I might try again later)
