Task 2: Share your reviewing philosophy with us – how do you rate a book? Do you have a mental template for reviewing? Rules you try to follow, or rules you try to break?
My reviewing philosophy is pretty simple, too. These days, I only review if I feel like it. And even then it may be a long detailed review of why I liked or disliked a book, or it may be a few sentences describing the same.
As for rating, I do tend to rate highly. If I get enjoyment out of a book, I'm usually generous with the stars.
But mainly, I tend to rate thusly:
5 stars = I really loved this book lots and lots
4 stars = I loved this book
3 stars = I liked this book a lot
2 stars = this book was okay
1 star = Yuck
