How I rate and review books

Updated: Jan 21, 2019



What the stars mean


5 stars: Perfection, a must-read


4.5 stars: An excellent book with only minor flaws, a must-read


4 stars: A great book with a handful of minor flaws, highly recommended


3.5 stars: A good book with a number of flaws, recommended


3 stars: An above-average book with a few glaring issues, recommended in most cases


2.5 stars: An average book, while there are glaring issues, the positives balance it out


2 stars: An okay book, the flaws outweighed the positives, but some may still enjoy the book


1.5 stars: Major, glaring flaws, I had trouble finishing the book, I don’t recommend


1 star: I struggled to finish the book, I would advise against reading this book

My rules

  1. I always finish the book — I don’t post reviews to books I DNF

  2. If I don’t think I can give an objective review, I won’t review the book

  3. Just because I give a low-star rating, doesn’t mean someone won’t enjoy the book
