Book Reviews

White and Pink Earphones on Gray Textile

Books are my kryptonite.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my friends, family, or other group affiliations.

I give out ratings by steaming coffees.

The Steaming Coffee ratings

5 – The book was super impressive and I couldn’t put it down. I really love it and would highly recommend it.

4 – It was enjoyable and likable. It wowed me.

3 – Good book, but something put it off from getting a higher rating: for example, a lack of character development, an unfitting disturbing scene or it’s too predictable. 

2 – The book was nothing special as I had a hard time finishing it. I did not connect with the characters or the story.

canstock18820718 … or no rating at all means it was NOT MY CUP OF COFFEE. I did not enjoy the book and think the story could’ve done better. Authors, please don’t make me use this rating frequently. 

I will try my HARDEST best not to do a Simon Cowell while reviewing, but I believe honesty is the best policy. I am not afraid to use my rating scheme whenever I review a book. 

I’ll be reviewing published novels and I might hate your favorite book or love the book that you hate so even if you get offended personally, I am not going to apologize.
