Review ratings

I didn’t like it. I might have made myself finish it or I might have had to put it to one side. This book will have too many flaws for me to even mention. I’m hoping I never have to use this, I can’t think of any of the books I have ever read that would fall into this category but there is a first time for everything.

It was passable. Whilst I might have found an aspect of the book intriguing, say the plot or a character or the writing style, this book still has a lot of work to do.

I liked it. There will be parts that I felt were really strong, but there will still be some elements that aren’t reaching their full potential.

I really enjoyed this book. Mostly everything will be top notch, however, I may have found a few things throughout that I wasn’t keen on but I will be recommending this book.

Absolute brilliance! This book will be near perfection, one that I know will be staying with me for a while and that I will be telling people they must read.

I will also be attributing half ratings because sometimes there are some books that just deserve that little half extra or I’m being indecisive on what rating it sits between.
