Book Ratings Explained:
How I rate my books

RATINGS:  I use the star rating system loosely based off Goodreads. I do believe that a 3-star rating is a positive review. Since I don’t have a higher rating than 5 stars, I reserve that rating for the books that I find absolutely spectacular and that moved me and or brought about change in my life; I am very picky about which books I will give 5 stars. So I wrote a more comprehensive Book Rating explanation below for each star rating.

IT WAS AMAZING! I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! I’M TOTALLY OBSESSED!

This book was absolutely Astounding. I LOVED it. The characters were memorable and had unique voices & characteristics. The plot line of this book held my attention, it was intriguing, and the pacing was fantastic. The author’s style of writing is another reason for the high rating. I love reading books with a consistent, lyrical writing style that makes me think and learn from it. This book will stay with me for a long time. After finishing, I can’t stop thinking about it. This is a book I would read again. Highly Recommended!

I WOULD PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER

This book was a really enjoyable read. I really liked it. Some moments I may have even loved.  There may have been a few things that I felt could be improved upon.  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 think most people would really enjoy this book. Go read this book!

IT WAS GOOD!

This book was good. I didn’t love it and I didn’t dislike it.  There maybe have been a few things that bothered me while reading this book and it may have been slow in parts. I would still recommend this book; it just wasn’t a favorite of mine.

I MAY HAVE LIKED A FEW THINGS

There may have been a few moments that I liked. This rating is often reserved for books that are lacking in some areas—writing, characterization, and/or problematic plot lines. But there may have been some moments of enjoyment for me.

NOT MY CUP OF TEA

I disliked this book and had several issues with it. There wasn’t anything about the book that I enjoyed. Some things in this book may have been offensive to me.
