I adored this book. You will see it on all my favorite book lists and recommendations. The characters were relatable, the pacing was amazing. I will likely be gushing about this book for years to come and annoyingly recommending it to all my friends. I probably own more than one copy of this book and will be tracking down more books by the author in the very near future. This book will live rent-free in my head forever.

I enjoyed this book. I may not have connected with part of the story but overall, it was very enjoyable. I will be recommending this book to my friends and followers. It’s likely I own a copy of this book for my own shelves and would search out other books by the author. This book will live in my head but probably have to pay rent.

This book was good, not great. I enjoyed it but something missed the mark. Maybe the characters were too flat, the world-building incomplete, or possibly it was edited poorly. I would probably recommend it – with a disclaimer – because I enjoyed the overall story-line. I may or may not look for other books by the author to read.

This book definitely missed the mark. It’s not one I would read again and I would only recommend it if it matches a friend’s reading style or preferences. This book is not one I would purchase for myself. I either have very neutral feelings about this book or I just plain didn’t enjoy it.

1 STAR / DNF

1 star graphic review rating system DNF

I either struggled to finish this book or I did not finish it at all. I would not recommend this to my friends, followers, or worst enemies. Whether because of the plot, editing, or characters, I thoroughly did not enjoy this book. It’s possible I hated it. Unfortunately, I would pass up any future books by this author.
