Rating System

My Rating System:

1Hated the book. 

My lease used rating. If I use it, it is because I couldn’t get into the book. I couldn’t connect with the main characters. I couldn’t follow the plotline. I saw zero potential in the book, if a series. I would not recommend. I would not read anything else by the author

2Didn’t like the book.

My second lease used rating. If I used it, it is because I couldn’t get into the book. I couldn’t connect with the main characters. I could barely follow the plotline. I could barely see potential in the book, if a series. I would not recommend. I would read other books by the author but with great hesitation.

3The book was OK.

One of my more commonly used ratings. If I used it, it is because I could get into the book. I could connect with at least one main character. I could follow the plotline. I could see potential in the book if a series. I would be on the fence about recommending. I would read other books by the author.

4Liked the book.

My most commonly used rating. If I used it, it is because I could get into the book. I could connect with both main characters. I could follow the plotline. I could see potential if books are a series. I would recommend. I would read other books by the author.

5 – Loved the book.

My third lease used rating. If I used it it is because I got immersed in the book. I became very attached to the main characters. I got immersed in the plotline. I could see definite potential if books are a series. I would recommend. I would read other books by the author.

I mainly rate books 3’s or 4. 1, 2, and 5’s are rare.

Child: Under the age of 10.

Tween:  For the ages between 10-13

Young Teen: For ages 13-16.

Older Teen: For ages 16-21

Adult: Ages 21 and up.
