Hello as of May 17th 2020 I have a new rating report system in place. Which you may find all the information you need.
- 3 to 6 — Good.
- 7 to 9 — Fantastic.
- 10 — F×cking Phenomenally.
- Overall Thoughts
Now let me expand on the above.
The Rating Report is the Number I feel and think is correct for each category in the Review Category as well as my Overall Thoughts Report and Review.
I have split my book reviews into distinctive categories like Plot/Narrative, Characters, Writing/Pacing, Setting/Theme, Cover and Overall Thoughts because…
A) This is easier for me to write and its how my brain works.
B) I prefer to expand on different aspects of a book and
C) I hope it is a nice way of seeing if you like a book especially if you tend to focus/favour on individual aspects in a story.
