Here’s a brief overview on my rating system:
You’ll rarely see 1 star ratings. I normally don’t bother reviewing a book if I can’t give it at least 2 stars.
An “okay” read. I suggest borrowing this book not buying it.
This book wasn’t good, it wasn’t bad, it was just so-so.
This was a great read – totally shelf worthy!
ZOMG. This book is amazing! Borrow or buy it immediately!! I REPEAT borrow or buy immediately!
In my 28 years of life, I’ve found that some books just can’t be contained by 5 stars. These are extremely rare. They make me want to own all versions of the books (soft and hard cover) and gift them to my friends. They’re like 5 stars times 2!
In case you were curious, here’s some examples of my 5+ star favorite books.
Throne of Glass series (all books) by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling – of course!
