Rating System

I tend to rate books using the following star ratings:

1 star – I really didn’t like this book at all. I give a book this rating if it was insulting, the writing was horrible or I couldn’t finish the book.

2 stars – This book was okay, nothing special. I may have liked a couple of aspects, but overall I wouldn’t rave about or recommend this book

3 stars – I enjoyed this book! I had a fun time reading it and, although, I maybe really enjoyed one or two aspects, this book was only alright. Although for some people this may be only an okay rating, I personally think this is a good rating!

4 stars – I really enjoyed this book! I liked almost everything about this book but maybe the plot was a bit boring/the pacing was off/the character’s weren’t developed enough to make it a favourite!

5 stars – Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before! For whatever reason it was this book captured my heart and I adored it!


I used rate my books following G from BookRoast’s CAWPILE system which consists of the following (so some of my reviews may still contain this):

  • Characters
  • Atmosphere
  • Writing
  • Plot
  • Intrigue
  • Logic
  • Enjoyment
