Rating System

 

Curious as to what I mean with those little stars? Well now you can know just where I am coming from when I rate each book. Here are the things that I take into consideration when giving my rating:

  • Plot: The story line, whether or not it had a point, and could I follow it.
  • Premise of the Story: To be honest sometimes the idea of the story is all that I like. It happens but this does affect my rating.
  • Writing: How was the author’s writing? Was it too descriptive? Have too much extra?
  • Originality: Was the story unique? This is important when you read as much as I do and with a series.
  • Characters: Did I connect to the characters? Could we be friends ? Did they seem real to me?
  • World of the Story: Was I able to picture the world the story takes place within my mind? This is super important for me. If I can’t pictures the world I typically put the book straight down.
  • Pace of the Story: Was it over to quick? Did it drag on?
  • Feelings: How did the story make me feel?
  • Cover: This is the first thing I notice and while I work hard not to judge a book by its cover I just can’t help it. The cover either draws me in or makes me move past the book.

Didn’t like it at all. I struggled to finish it and most likely only did it because I was committed to it.

2 star rating

 

It was alright.  It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good. It was okay for a if there is nothing else to read kind of moment.

3 star rating

 

Liked it.  While it wasn’t an OMG you have to read this moment. It kept me entertained and I enjoyed it. It won’t make my Read Again List but I won’t delete it from my Kindle either.

Half Ratings

I do use half ratings when my opinion falls somewhere in the middle. It happens when I can’t decide just where the book should be because maybe I didn’t love it but would read again.
