What You Can Expect To See In My Review:

- Summary of the book
- My personal review of the book
- My rating of the book on a 0-5 star scale
My Review Scale:
Zero stars: Could not finish, or had some sort of issue with the work. It generally means I found something in the story personally troubling, or that there are a plethora of grammatical errors. Zero ratings are rarely given.
One star: I simply did not like it. Other people may enjoy it, but it is just not my style. I will offer constructive criticism of the work and try not to be inflammatory or overly negative.
Two stars: It has potential. However, it is just "okay." I was not inspired by it.
Three stars: Entertaining but not fabulous. I would recommend other readers checking it out at the library, or buying it used, but would not recommend paying full price for it.
Four stars: Fabulous but not quite awesome. Well-written and well thought out, but not necessarily something that I think will stay with me forever, or that I'll want to read again and again.
Five stars: Absolutely awesome--the best there are. These are books I'll keep in a place of honor, reading over and over, and will recommend to everyone I know.
I do my best to read and review books in approximately two weeks, although if I have tour obligations it may take longer--a fact which I will make clear at the time you contact me.
