Rating System


I write my reviews to tell you how I felt about a book. I don't want to tell you about the book because I want you to read it for yourself and form your own opinion. My focus is on my thoughts and feelings about a book in hopes of inspiring others to be interested or intrigued enough to read it themselves. That being said, when I publish reviews, I try very hard not to include any spoilers so that all readers can enjoy my review without having the book ruined for them. I like to put an emphasis on the characters within the book and what I liked or disliked about them and their interactions with one another. I really think that characters are the core of a story and as the long as the characters are strong enough, the plot doesn't need to be perfect. 

While I don't mention any specific plot details in my reviews, I do like to highlight whether or not I liked the plot and theme of the book, as well as any flaws that may be prevalent. I also like to mention the author's writing style and share my opinions of that as well because their are many different styles that appeal to all different types of readers.

While I certainly don't like every book I read and I've had my share of 1 and 2 star books, I have made a decision NOT to review these books for my blog. I will still post a review on Goodreads/Amazon but the main focus of my blog is to promote the books I love and encourage readers to share my passion. Therefore, I only post reviews with a 3 star rating or above here on the blog. You can find  ALL of my reviews, including 1 and 2 star ratings on my Goodreads page.


Absolutely Amazing! I would stay up all night to finish this book.

Really Great Book! Could hardly put it down  to go to bed.

Enjoyable read! Easily finished within a couple days.

Not for me! I was barely able to finish reading.

Didn't finish, and what time I did spend reading is time I will never get back.
