All my reviews are honest-despite whether they are signed copies, the author sent them to me for an honest review, blog tours, or publishers sent me the book.
: This is where I would rate a book 5 stars from being- entertained, characters are interesting, the writing is engaging and thoughtful, no issues with pacing. Sometimes, my 5 star reviews offers 1 flaw that is pretty minor, but it doesn’t bother me too much. My 5 stars reviews are really rare.
: 4.5 stars means-I’m very entertained, the characters are interesting, writing is good, etc, but have either 1 major thing or 2 minor stuff that I couldn’t behind. One of the often occurrences behind 4.5 stars, is the pacing which gets me a hard time, or it’s a character issue.
: 4 stars means-entertained, but I either have 2 major problems or 3 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book. It merely depends, but 4 stars are really common.
: 3.5 stars-entertained, but it’s a mix whether it’s memorable or just forgettable. I have 3 major problems or 4 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book.
: I have troubles rating with this one for three stars. It most often means it’s forgettable, and nothing really stands out to give it a better rating. I have 4 major problems or 5 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book. I usually include 3 maybe 4 positive stuff about the book in my review, but features a little more negative stuff than positive stuff.
: 2.5 rating is on the bridge of liking it and disliking it. This has a lot more aspects of including stuff I didn’t like it-which includes 5 or 6 major stuff and little to no minor stuff. I usually have problems with-world-building, characters, pacing, plot, writing, or just problematic stuff that I have found in the book.
: 2 stars basically means I dislike it. There are so little pros in the book and so many cons that pulls me out of the book. I have a lot more problems dealing with characters, plot, pacing, writing, or problematic stuff. I usually have 3 maybe 4 pros in a 2 star rating.
: 1.5 stars is I’m on the verge of hating this book, because there were so many problems with it and/or I couldn’t get along with the story. It includes a lot of negative and what I find lacking, with maybe 1 or 2 minor stuff that I liked.
: I’m pretty sure 1 star is pretty explanatory without it being explained. It means I really hate the book, and it’s a 50% that I have DNF’d the book, or continued on despite the book not being enjoyable. I found a lot more negative stuff, and I was unable to find anything positive in the book minus the cover if it’s pretty.
