If I do not like a book, I will be constructive.  I will also try to provide suggestions for readers if I feel the book was just not for me but would certainly suit other readers.

Rating System

One of the best books I've read.  Resounded amazingly with me personally, or I just could not put it down.  Compulsively readable with no personal objections to content.  Highly recommend to read and purchase.  Will probably try to get it for my local library's collection.

Excellent book with very few things in it to keep me from loving it.  Had a few issues, so I can't give it five stars.  Still a great joy to read and would recommend it at least to read.  Perhaps recommend to purchase.

Not horrible but not great.  Maybe didn't live up to expectations or wasn't as described.  Didn't bore me to tears but it's not memorable or has too many objections from me to make it a 4-star read.  Might recommend to read depending on the audience.

Too many things that were terrible, objectionable, or offensive.  A couple of redeeming qualities got me through to the finish.  Or it was a popular book that I was peer pressured into reading or buying.  Not happy with it overall.  Don't recommend for purchase.  Maybe not to read, depending on audience.

Hated it.  No redeeming qualities.  Very offensive or not to my taste.  Do not recommend for purchase or reading to anyone.  Usually, one stars are DNF's, and if I feel so strongly about a book, I will try not to even review it. 

I Do Not Review:

  •  Books with sexual assault or consent issues, including "soft consent."

  • Erotica

  • Poetry
  • YA with adult content (sex, language—any adult situations)

  • Non-fiction

  • Books with social or political commentary and/or themes resembling real-word, contemporary issues.

Please use this as a guide.  Even if a book fits these genres, I will still use my own discretion when choosing books to review.
