This is the rating scale that I use when reviewing books:
☆☆☆☆☆ = LOVED it! I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
☆☆☆☆ = Liked it a lot. It may have had a few flaws, but I would still recommend it.
☆☆☆ = Liked it. This book didn’t wow me, but fans of this genre/author might really like it.
☆☆ = It was okay. I’m sure that some people would enjoy it, but I’m not one of them.
☆ = Didn’t like it at all, and I can’t recommend it to anyone.
I do accept print copies and e-copies of books to review, including advanced reader copies. Besides receiving the occasional free book, I do not accept or receive anything in exchange for my reviews. In those instances, I always note that the copy that I read was sent to me for free in exchange for a review. I write and share both positive and negative reviews, and only post my most sincere opinions. While I try to be polite, I am not going to say that I enjoyed something that I didn’t. If you are an author or publisher that is interested in having me review a copy of your book, please feel free to contact me.
