Book Reviews (Alphabetically by Author’s Last Name)
Here’s a link to my book reviews listed by author’s last name. I always try to start off with a summary of the book, and then delve deeper into my thoughts or opinions about the book. I read a large variety of genres, but usually lean towards historical fiction, YA, and romance.
I rate my books on a 5 star system. It goes something like this:
5 stars: loved it!
4 stars: thoroughly enjoyed it
3 stars: okay…
2 stars: I didn’t like it, but there were some redeemable qualities
1 star: disliked everything about it!
I also use half stars (ex. 3.5) in cases where I am on the fence between two numbers. My reviews also may include links to Goodreads if you are looking for more information.
That being said, I would recommend any book that catches your interest! I see many reviewers say that they recommend books 3 stars and over, but just because I gave a book a lower rating does not by any means indicate it is a bad book! A 2-star book for me may be a 5-star book for you! Read any book you want, despite the reviews anybody gives it.
