Book reports...

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!

Miss Spitfire, by Sarah Miller - *** (This was very informative; I knew the Helen Keller story, for the most part, but I liked her approach. I didn't know the stuff at the end (Sarah included a biographical timeline), so that was fun...I probably won't read this again, mostly because I'm not a huge MG person.)

Blood Dreams, by Kay Hooper - **** (If you like her other books, I think you'll like this one too. It wasn't as tight as some of her others, however -- I felt like I was still missing pieces of the puzzle by the end.)

Cabinet of Curiosities, by Lincoln Child/Douglas Preston - *** (I might actually do this one again...I'm about halfway through and I'm losing interest. It almost seems like they threw in a bunch of extra stuff just to extend the word count. We'll see -- I probably won't read this again, either.)
