Book blogger, audiobook lover and shamelessly honest reviewer. Mostly read fantasy, mystery, romance, UF and YA but all genres welcome.
Here's my rating criteria - thanks BL for the half stars! I've been wanting these for YEARS!
5 stars: Loved it! Emotions were engaged big time (laughed, cried, couldn't sleep, etc.) Just thinking about the book makes me happy and I'd like to re-read it one day.
4.5 stars: Amazing! Tight plot, interesting characters, thought-provoking.
4 stars: Great! Really enjoyed it. I'd like to meet these characters.
3.5 stars: Very good. Enjoyed it and found the book entertaining but didn't have a big emotional response.
3 stars: Most of the books I rate fall under this rating for a variety of reasons.
--- I found the book entertaining but nothing else
--- Good book but with major pet peeve
--- Inconsistent book - i.e. great characterization with mediocre/bizarre plots
2.5 stars: OK premise with big plot holes
2 stars: Didn't liked it, bored me, crazy premise, hated the main character.
1 star: Hated it! Cannot say one good thing about it
