I review books by stars.
0- Worst Book I've Ever Read.
1- I didnt like it
2- It was Alright
3- I liked it but had some major problems
4- It was great! But with some small problems
5- Great book no bad parts, amazing
I will probably never rate a book a 0 star but you never know. Also sometimes I give book a .5 at the end and I will tell you what I mean by that.
1.5- It was ok but not good enough to be bearable.
2.5- I liked it a bit more than a two but still not enough for a 3.
3.5- It was a really good read and only had a few problems that doesnt make it a 4.
4.5- A great read but had about 1 or 2 problems that were too big to make it a 5.
And what I always do is this:
I just type the summary to the beginning of my review then I tell what I rate it. Then I say why I rated that and I seperated my reviews to three topics: Characters, Plot, Overall.
In characters I tell what I thought of them and if I liked them.
In that plot I tell them what I thought of the pace, the events, and the beginning, middle and end.
For the Overall I tell them what I thought of the book as a whole and sometimes I tell what ages should read it and what ages shouldnt read it.
