For a change, Jen and me doing a post together, as some of the books below are already cut, and as I'm being slow with reading and don't have enough material for a post on my own, I decided to chime in.
As it is the nature of any competition, at one point we have to start saying goodbyes to those who didn't quite won our hearts over. For Team RockStarlit BookAsylum this moment arrived now. We are going to say goodbye to 6 books, some we enjoyed reading, some not so much.
The pokey person in the group is finally getting around to her first round of mini-reviews for my DNF's! Please note, that this is only my opinion and my ratings, and these books still can end up as semi-finalists if one of my fellow judges deem them worthy. Once we have a couple of books all of us thinks won't make it, Timy will write up announcement posts.
