REVIEW MECHANICS

I primarily post reviews on this site, My Bookish Escapades, on Goodreads and on AmazonI could and I will post a review on other retail sites (like B&N, Book Depository, etc.) if I deem it necessary or if I'm required to. I also post reading updates on Twitter and keep track of my reading progress on Goodreads.

My review varies from a few sentences to a few paragraphs in length. It includes my rating, the reasons I liked/hated the book, my overall take on the writing, the characters, the world-building, etc., and any other details that will further describe and convey my feelings and thoughts toward the book.

For books I didn't finish (marked 'DNF'), please be aware that I prefer not to give a rating or leave a review for these. I don't believe I'll be able to give a fair rating/review since I didn't even read the entirety of the book. Although in some instances I do leave a very short review (it's more of a few sentences of rant really), when there are some things about the book that I just have to verbalize.

RATING SYSTEM 

5 stars
I LOVED IT. Love the writing. Love the plot. Love the characters. Love everything. A re-read (maybe even several) is definitely happening. I highly recommend. There's just no reason for you not to read this. Must-read!

4 stars
I liked it a lot. It's near perfect but for a very few, very small issue/s not worth mentioning. A re-read some time in the future is in order.

3 stars 
It's good. Average good. I enjoyed it but there were some issues I've had that I would surely pinpoint and enumerate in my official review.

2 stars 
Meh. For some unknown reason and by some miracle (who knows) I read the whole book. (Or maybe that's just me being stubborn.) Nevertheless, I do not recommend the book and I will not read it again. Also if it's part of a series, I most probably will not continue with the rest of it.

1 star 
Nope. No. I did not like it at all. Why did I even read this?!? Ugh, all those hours I could never take back. Enough said, next.

DNF/ Did Not Finish 
I don't rate books I mark DNF.
