Below is the scale that I use when it comes to terms with rating a book. If you’re looking to read my review policy, you can do so here.
Oh my gosh, I am shook! I only put down this book when I had to, and I’m stan so many characters! I was blown away by the plot and the amazing worldbuilding. I would reread this again, live in this book and I hope that there is a sequel coming out. This is totally a new favourite and I’d definitely recommend it to all of my friends.
This book was seriously awesome, I loved the majority of it but there might’ve been one or two things that didn’t make it one of my favourites. I’d love to reread this book, and I would hope for a sequel as well because this book was good. I’d recommend it to my friends!
This book was 50/50, it was a good book but there definitely were some problems that interrupted my reading of it. The plot or world-building was substantially confusing or the characters felt a bit non-dimensional. I might reread it, but it really depends on whether my TBR pile allows me to at that time. I might read the sequel, but it’s not a priority. I’d only recommend it if someone asked me about the book, but I’d mention a few of the problems I had.
I liked the premise of the novel and it started off great but the more I read it, the more I began to dislike it. I probably wouldn’t reread this book unless I decide to see if my perspective on it has changed. The book was only finished so that I could mark it as read on my Goodreads shelf. These books wouldn’t be recommended.
I either did not like this book or otherwise didn’t finish it at all. These books are ones I’d never reread and I’d point out some of the major flaws I had with the book. Books that are also discriminative are also given this rating. These books would never be recommended to any of my friends.
