My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Super cute! Read it in two days. I liked everything but the very end.

Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not my favorite by this author. A good story with complex characters, but the innuendo jokes really bothered me.

Defending Jacob

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Good courtroom thriller. But really quite sad to read.

Replay

ReplayReplay by Ken Grimwood

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Interesting idea. A little dated. Unnecessary sex and language.

What Alice Forgot

What Alice ForgotWhat Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great summer read--fun but intelligent. Interesting premise and a good book for discussion too.

Under the Never Sky

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

2.5 stars.

I'm in the minority on this one. I liked it fine, but not enough to continue the series.

The Martian

The MartianThe Martian by Andy Weir
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this. It's smart, funny, and reads like a thriller. It lost a star for the pages of scientific explanations that went over my head...and watch out if you are sensitive to language.

The Distance Between Us

The Distance Between UsThe Distance Between Us by Kasie West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Perfect beach read. Cute and laugh-out-loud funny. Read it in one sitting.

Seriously adorable and genuinely funny.

Split Second

Split Second (Pivot Point, #2)Split Second by Kasie West
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars. I thought the first 1/2 was slow, but the second 1/2 made it worth the read.
