Rating System

Note: I’ve been using the 5 stars rating system to rate my reviews but as from September 2015 I will be using coffee cups to rate books. It’s the same thing basically–three coffee cups is equal to three stars–I’m just simply using a different symbol.

I rate books by judging the following:

  • The writing
  • The character
  • The plot
  • The ending

I may comment on the cover, but a book cover will not affect my review or my rating. It’s the content that matters.

Rating is out of 5 coffee cups.

☕= Terrible. I hated it. Lots of problems Would never recommend it.

☕☕= Bad. I did not like it. Significant amount of issues. Would not recommend it.

☕☕☕= Good, but not great. I liked it, but there were several problems, and I would read it just once only. May recommend it.

☕☕☕☕= Great. I really liked this book. Well written. A few problems, but I may re-read it a second time. Would recommend it.

☕☕☕☕☕= Amazing! Loved it, loved it, loved it. Minor problems maybe, but really enjoyed it, enough to re-read it several times. Would definitely recommend it.

If you are still a little confused about the rating system or have any other questions, feel free to contact me!

PS: Lol is it just me but do these coffee cups look like cakes instead?
