I decided to include this Rating System so authors and readers understand how I rate books. 

I usually never DNF a book. I'm a little OCD and always need to read from beginning to end. Even if I feel disconnected from the story, I still give the author the benefit of the doubt and finish the book.


5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

This is a rating I rarely give out, especially since it's the highest rating someone can give. That being said, if I rate a book 5⭐️, it’s because the book has left an imprint in (or on)  me and I felt it to my core. It was absolutely amazing and I loved every bit of it.  I will most definitely purchase a paperback to add to my library.


4 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

This rating to me—although a 4—means  I absolutely loved the book and will show my appreciation through the teasers in my reviews.


I also tend to rate a book 4.5/5 by giving a 4 star rating.

If the book was incredible, it was probably missing something to reach 5 stars and left me wanting more.


3 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

I enjoyed the book, may not have felt a connection between the characters or the story but I still found the book enjoyable.


2 STARS ⭐️⭐️ 

I really try my best to avoid giving 2⭐️ but it can happen—not often though.  If I do, it’s solely because there was no connection between the story and me. Probably took me too long to connect and the storyline might have lost me at some point.


1 STAR ⭐️ 

If this would come to happen—never did yet—I wouldn't rate the book at all.  I believe this rating, regardless of my opinion, would do more harm than good, and if it was an ARC, I would privately email the PR or Author to let them know. 


Hoping this helps!
