ROOB Wrap-up

Thanks to ROOB, April was one of the most fun months reading-wise I’ve had in a long time. Here are the books I read in April that counted for ROOB:

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld – my own book (-5)
Burning for Revenge by John Marsden – my own book (-5)
Undercover by Beth Kephart – my own book (-5)
The Night is for Hunting by John Marsden – my own book (-5)
The Other Side of Dawn by John Marsden – my own book (-5)

Love in a Time of Homeschooling by Laura Brodie – review book (-3)
Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos – my own book (-5)
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen – my own book (-5)
Touch Magic by Jane Yolen – my own book (-5)
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher – library book (-2)
Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 by David Petersen – my own book (-5)

My average total was -4.43. Be sure and watch my fellow participants’ blogs for their final results:

It looks like we are planning to do it again for the month of October, and we’re brainstorming ideas that would allow us to open it up to a bigger group of bloggers – so stay tuned!
