I have the honor and pleasure of working with two phenomenal companies who will provide me with books to read and review at no cost to me.  I will also be reading and reflecting upon books that I purchase with my own funds.

In each instance, all opinions expressed are my own, and I am not required to leave a positive critique. I will leave a disclosure on each book reviewed if I have received said book from one of these companies.

book rating scale

Below, I have outlined my own rating scale. My review is simply my opinion and my thoughts on a particular book right after completion. Not everyone will agree with my views, and that’s okay. I have comprised a 1 through 5 STAR rating system that is as follows:

Did Not Finish.

This is given to a book that I did not happen to finish reading. If a book receives this acronym it will NOT be provided a star rating. I do not feel it appropriate to rate to a book that I did not complete.

One Star.

Not my cup of tea. I disliked this book and had several issues with it.  I didn’t enjoy anything about the book and/or some things may have been considered offensive.

Two Star.

May have liked a few things. There may have been a few moments I liked. This rating is reserved for books lacking in some areas (writing, characterization, and/or problematic plot lines); BUT, there may have been moments of enjoyment.

Three Star.

It was good. This book was good… Didn’t love it and didn’t dislike it. May have had slow points or moments that bothered me while reading. I would still recommend this book; it just wasn’t a fave.

Four Stars.

I would pull an all-nighter to finish this book. This was a really enjoyable read. I truly liked it… even loved several moments. It may have room for improvement, or there may be nothing wrong with the book; it just didn’t blow me away. I would recommend this book to most people and believe the majority would greatly enjoy it. GO READ THIS BOOK!

Five Stars.

IT WAS AMAZING! I could not put this book down. I’m totally obsessed, as this book was absolutely breathtaking… I loved it! The characters were memorable and had distinct voices. The plot line of this book held my attention, was unique, and the pacing was fantastic. The author’s writing style is another reason for the high rating. I greatly enjoy reading books with a consistent, lyrical writing style that flows well. These books often stay with me for a long time. After finishing, I can’t stop thinking about it. I often reread this book multiple times. GO SELL A KIDNEY, IF NEED BE, TO PURCHASE THIS BOOK. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
