I realize I have never officially created a rating system. From this point forward, I will use these standards for my in depth reviews.
Romance (or lack thereof)
Misc (additional commentary)
I have a problem with indecision while reviewing books, so I will be utilizing letter grades.
A+: best I’ve ever seen, absolute perfection
A: amazing, almost nothing can compare
A-: really great, above average by far
B+: quite good, possibly with some tiny flaws
B: good; enjoyable, but definitely can be improved
B-: could be better, overall not bad
C: fair, several large flaws
C-: meh, not great, somewhat irritated
D: bad, really annoying and flawed
F: awful, could not continue
Please keep in mind that I am human, and these grades are kind of flexible. In some cases I might mix two grades together like A+/B- so I don’t have to decide.
Also! To calculate the final overall, I will give each letter grade a number and average all of them. A+ will be 10 points, and F is 1. This way, it’ll be fair and more accurate. Mixed grades will result in a decimal.
I will be posting my review policy in the near future, hopefully, so be watching for that.
