I’ve been sharing reviews for a while now, but realized I still haven’t shared my review system. That’s probably helpful for people since every reader is very different. And everyone’s star ratings vary a little. I often fall between my own star ratings even, so you’ll see half stars from time to time.
Here’s how I look at my star ratings/ reviews!
Ugh. Didn’t want to finish. Maybe didn’t finish.
Just okay. Wouldn’t recommend to others. Often means I had a hard time connecting or many problems with a book.
Liked, but didn’t love. I may or may not recommend 3 star books. Often, they lack something key I look for, but generally were still an enjoyable read.
Liked/ loved. Would definitely recommend to friends, family, and/or bookstagram (or to specific readers in these categories, depending on the genre/book).
New forever favorite. A book I’ll read again (and again) and that I think you should, too!
How do you rate your reading? I’d love to hear about your review system in the comments below!
