MY RATING SYSTEM

I believe reviews are for other readers.  With that said, I always strive to be kind to authors and constructive in my criticisms.  I believe this is how we grow as human beings.  With out further ado:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Flawless. I hugged the booked when I finished. Or I was possibly moved to tears. Maybe I learned something. A book I won’t stop recommending or singing its praises. To the point I may be borderline annoying. I am who I am.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 - Very close to five stars but either something was lacking or a character or situation deducted from five star status. Hey, they can’t all be perfect!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - A really, really, solid read. I find most books fall in this category. I have dubbed myself in the past-- The Queen of Four Star Reviews!

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 - A book that’s better than a three star, but not good enough for a four. I know what you’re thinking . . . Her system is pretty obvious!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Just okay. I finished it. It was fine. It probably won't be the first book I recommend or talk about.  There are plenty of fish in the sea.

⭐️⭐️ - I very rarely read a book under three stars. If I give a book two stars I only stuck with it because I was reading it for a Book Club OR I paid New Release Hardcover Full Price and I’m gonna see it through damn it!

⭐️ - Have I ever given a one star?  I don’t think so. Let’s just call this a Do Not Finish (DNF). And life’s too short for bad books. And lets face it . . . I have a never ending Too Be Read (TBR) list!
