To keep things simple I follow the Goodreads system for rating books which goes like this:
5/5: It was amazing - I highly recommend it and you should go and read it ASAP.
4/5: It was great - I really liked it and would definitely recommend it.
3/5: It was good - I enjoyed reading it despite some problems I had with the book and would recommend it to certain people.
2/5: It was okay - I found some aspects of the book enjoyable, but also a lot of problems that would deter me from recommending it to most people.
1/5: I didn't like it - I found too many problems with the book to enjoy reading it and would not recommend it.
There will also be half ratings where I feel it's appropriate.
All reviews will be spoiler free for stand-alone books or the first book in a series. There may be spoilers for earlier books in a series if I am reviewing a later book in that series. If that is the case I will put a spoiler warning at the beginning of the review.
All reviews on this blog are of my own opinion. I try to be as honest as I possibly can when I am reviewing a book. Any criticism I give should be considered constructive. Any comment I make about a book that is perceived as being negative is a critique on the book and not a personal attack on the author or anyone who likes the book.
