Reviewing System

The following is my personal rating system based on how I feel about the books I read. I recognize that sometimes I will read a book that doesn’t speak to me but that many other people will enjoy. I take that into account when reading and recommending books to others.

  • ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ I loved the book and highly recommend it. It is a candidate to become a staff pick of mine at work.
  • ⭑⭑⭑⭑✩ I still really enjoyed the book but . Will definitely still be recommending, but not a candidate to become a staff pick.
  • ⭑⭑⭑✩✩ I enjoyed the book but parts of it didn’t resonate with me. Maybe it just wasn’t for me. Would recommend if I think it would resonate better with the person I was recommending it to.
  • ⭑⭑✩✩✩ I didn’t enjoy this book personally, but I could see how others might. It’s just not for me for reasons I will list. I would recommend this to someone who enjoyed similar genres and titles.
  • ⭑✩✩✩✩ I didn’t enjoy this book and I can’t imagine recommending it to others.
  • DNF Occasionally I will choose not to move forwards with a book for a variety of different reasons and factors. I will always share the point at which I chose to stop and the reasoning why with the publisher, as well as with a short explanation on this blog and my Goodreads
