I like to start every book with a clear mind in order to give the narrative and the author a fair chance. I also give authors multiple chances. Authors can grow and their writing can mature. They should not be judged on one book alone.
I do not rate books I DNF.
🌟: Struggled to finish or possible DNF / Not Recommendable
🌟🌟: Not awful but not great/ Probably not recommendable
🌟🌟🌟: Enjoyable / Recommendable with possible disclaimers
🌟🌟🌟🌟: Delightful / Recommendable
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟: Absolutely Love / Amazing Book / 100% Recommendable / I squeal with delight every time I think about it.
Note: I try not to rate using 1/2 stars since Goodreads and most retailers do not give the option. However, if a book deserves just a little bit more, I will give a half star and notate accordingly. It is rare – very rare.
If you have a book you would like for me to review or a blog tour you would like for me to join, please use the contact page to email me with the following details:
- Book Name
- Book Release Date
- Suggested timeline as to when you would like the review completed
Depending on the book, genre and timeline, I may or may not be able to review your book depending on prior commitments and/or other time restraints.
