I’m in the process of revamping my rating system. Letter grades made me think too much of school, so now, I’ve introduced something similar to a 5 star rating system. Instead of stars, there will be wings so it relates to Book Faery.
Here’s an exploration of what each rating means (you can see each on the sidebar) and what I will generally be giving.
Really liked it.
It was okay.
Didn’t like it.
There will also be half wings. Think of these as a happy medium between the other ratings.
The Faerie of Honor Rating:
Now, along with the 1-5 wings rating system, there will also be a highly esteemed rating for books that have blown me away. These books, while extremely rare, do exist. To learn more about this level of excellence—at least in my eyes!—go over here :)
- 3-5 wings: are all positive ratings. The average for most books I’ve enjoyed. EXAMPLE: 5 wings ~ A+ ; 4.5 wings ~ Borderline really liking it and loving it.
- 2 wings: the book had some redeeming qualities, but could be improved. I might buy the next book if I feel strong enough about the author’s potential for improvement.
- 1 wing: I either couldn't finish it, or finished it and disliked it way too much. Will mention if I did not finish the book.
