New Review/Rating System

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this in case you notice a change in my future reviews! I decided to do something a little different than using “stars.” My love of coffee fueled this change! Happy Reading! May you need ALL THE COFFEE!

    1. this is a little bit of a change from my previous way of reviewing. I used to NEVER give 5 stars because I felt like I was saving 5 stars for the most amazing books ever! I gave 4s to the ones I loved. This past year, I started giving 5s to the ones I loved and didn’t really leave any room to show which ones I “loved so much I couldn’t live with out them”, you know? So now I think I’ve found a good middle ground and I think this is much more fair and real!


      1. I’m still very stingy with a full five-star rating. I’m more likely to rate at a 4.5 (I wish GR would allow half points!), because there’s always some tiny thing I can find that keeps me from truly finding it “5 STARS = one of the best I’ve ever read.” So even some of my all-time favorites end up between that and “4 STARS = a great read, highly recommended.” I only rated two books (out of 70) that I read last year as true fives: The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language by Mark Forsyth and Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher (audiobook read by her).
