Okay. I have a wacky way of rating books and I thought I should share it with y’all.
I don’t force myself to finish a book too often so I rarely will rate something lower than 3 stars.
2 stars means I had some strange reason for finishing the book against my better judgement.
3 stars means the book was okay… nothing to write home about. No promises on giving the author anything past the second chance I try to give everyone.
4 stars means I enjoyed it and can probably point to one or two things I loved. Also means I will definitely read that author again.
5 stars means I loved the book. Now… I freely admit I love 80% of the books I read. But what can I say, I have good taste.
There are two awards beyond 5 stars.
The first is the Hercules Hercules Award.
This award goes to a book that I really, really enjoyed. I was likely tweeting about he book. I was sad when the book ended cause I was that into it.
Finally, there is Ms. Berry’s Sexual Chocolate Award.
This is a book that wowed me.
Like I felt all the f*cking feelings.
I mean every feeling.
I likely even wanted to fight someone in the book.
The author of a book that wins this award had a new fan. I will try not to be a Stan but am likely combing your backlist for more books to make me feel these feelings…
Because I love these feelings.
When I do reviews on my blog I tend not to use stars but I will gladly shout out an award winning book.
I use star ratings on Goodreads and Amazon.
More awards may be born as I continue to read more amazing books.
Until then… let me dive into my next book.
