Book Talk

My Rating System

I want to bring some more substance to my blog rather than just reviews! So let me know other things you’d like me to mention and I can work that in. I have a couple of fun ideas I hope to implement as I get a better hang of blogging.

I first wanted to start off with an explanation of my grading system. I know each review blog has their own way of defining what each book means to them, and this is what my reads mean to me.

  • I maybe DNF this book or if I did it was so very hard to get through. Plenty of mistakes in all forms (grammatical, plot holes, character issues, etc.). Not sure why I finished the book in the first place. I rarely give this out, only because I stop reading before it’s worth giving it a star in the first place.


  •  I finished the book! Woo boy though, I will not be picking up the next book in the series. I will also not write a super long review. Even if I could rave about why I didn’t like the book (and I do think negative reviews need to be voiced) I don’t like to shout from the rooftops about it. I’ll express my opinions and let you conclude your own!


  • This book wasn’t bad. Some flaws I couldn’t ignore, but I enjoyed the story overall. It’ll be a toss-up if I go for the next book. There were also some good points that kept me flipping pages.


  • TOO GOOD Y’ALL. I thoroughly had a good time reading this book. I have already ordered the next one. There was something missing that kept it from being a total knock-out, but I was entranced nonetheless.


  • YAAAAAS. All the gold stars. All the feelings. All the things. I have a lot of things to say about this book. It was amazing and any flaw was too minor for me to pay much mind. I want the entire series and this author may turn into an auto-buy for me. I may get super southern and the review may get super whirly because I can’t keep my thoughts straight with the goodness I just devoured.


I also now include a section titled Overall audience notes. This is a bullet section highlighting some main features of the book. Including but not limited to: language, sexual content, violence, trigger potentials or harsh subjects.
