Bloggy Bookie Review
This blog was created as a means for me to keep track of the books I’m reading as I’m reading them and afterwards. This will (hopefully) give me a clear view of what I’m reading, what topics I tend to like and hopefully I’ll be able to recommend a new book to a reader, and even get recommendations myself.
Here’s a breakdown of how I plan to structure my reviews.
Released: The month and year the book was released
Pages: how many pages
Format: What format type did I read it in. I mainly use three: my book, library book and e-Book (Kindle).
Series: Is this a book series, if so, I’ll list books that are also in the series.
Shelfable: Is this a book I want to keep in my permanent collection?
Rating: ★★★★☆ Filled in stars are good, ‘blank’ or white stars are bad
Then the meat and potatoes, the review!
★★★★★ – This book blew me away, a MUST read.
★★★★☆ – This book was great, I enjoyed it and I would probably recommend it to certain readers.
★★★☆☆ – Okay, nothing worth adding to your MUST READ NOW pile but a cute story that I think most people would enjoy.
★★☆☆☆ – lukewarm, not excited, and didn’t hate it. Probably will read books by the author again, but wouldn’t dive into another book immediately.
★☆☆☆☆ – I finished the book, but that was the only happy part…when it was over.
☆☆☆☆☆ – Didn’t finish reading the book or found it so awful I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemies.
Let’s get crackin’!
