[UPDATED: 19 AUGUST 2021]
Here are the guidelines for my ratings. I rate books from 1 STAR to 5 STARS. You can expect an in-depth reasoning behind my ratings in my reviews.
It wasn’t my taste. The plot or the idea wasn’t objective.
It was okay. Perhaps half the time I only have vague ideas of what was happening. It could also be because as much as I understood the plot of the story, the writing style wasn’t my cup of tea or the execution of the story wasn’t well done.
The book was decent. Nothing stood out, it wasn’t memorable.
It was good. Overall good writing. Keeps the readers interested. Just could be improved in a few areas.
Amazing book. Will perhaps purchase a copy of it to keep (if it is an E-Book). Executed the story really well. Clear description of what was going on. Would probably recommend.
Aside from these ratings, I will try my best not to DNF a book. If I do DNF it within the first few pages, I will not give it a review. However, if I read it until the 70-75% mark of the book, I will most likely write a review, but of course, I will mention that I did not finish it.
This will solely depend on the book, and the above statement is only a guide.
