Rating System

On my blog, I have a five bookworm πŸ› or popcorn 🍿 rating system, depending on whether I’m rating a book or a movie. Most of the time, a book or movie will be given a rating from this system so I thought an explanation page could be useful. The one constant exception is if I DNF’ed the book or movie, for which I will always try to give an explanation.

If I read a book or listen to an audiobook with my wee monsters, the book will instead receive a book monster πŸ‘Ύ rating. This rating will still follow my rating system, however it will be the average of all three of our ratings instead of just my rating for the book.

This five-point rating system is based entirely upon my experience with the material I’m reviewing and how much I enjoyed it or what I feel about it. My ratings are not an indicator of how well the characters were developed, the world was built, etc.

IΒ loved it and will probably reread or rewatch it. Expect to hear about this book or movie again. Repeatedly. Until I force you and everyone else to read or watch it because I enjoyed itΒ that much. This does not happen very often.

I really liked it. I will definitely recommend this book to readers who have similar reading tastes to me or this movie to viewers who have similar movie tastes to me! I will also likely rave about this book or movie on social media and to my friends.

I liked it, but there’s something keeping me from rating it higher. If this book or movie is in a series, I might read the next book / watch the next movie just to see what happens next. I might consider recommending this book or movie, but it’ll mostly be a fallback recommendation.

I didn’t really like this book or movie much. It might have been boring or offensive to me. I definitely won’t recommend it to anyone.


πŸ› / πŸ‘Ύ / 🍿

I didn’t like this book or movie at all. It was probably boring or offensive. I will probably warn people to avoid reading this book / watching this movie so they can read or watch something enjoyable instead.
