Rating System

I use a 5-pt scale, with .5′s. The minimum a book can get is a 1 and the max is a 5. All the books on my Favorites page are 5′s.

1 — Terrible. Or just not the book for me. I’m thinking “well, this is annoying” the whole time I’m reading it

1.5 — I obviously did not like it.

2 — It might have had a couple of redeeming features.

2.5 — It had potential, but just did not meet expectations.

3 — All right, but I won’t read it again.

3.5 — Some parts may have been good, but it wasn’t as good as it could have been.

4 — Pretty good.

4.5 — Almost perfect.

5 — This is a book that absolutely became a part of my soul and I will add it to my favorite’s shelf

NaNoWriMo: Transferring to My Writing Side-Blog

I think I’ll keep Remembering Wonderland as chiefly a book review and book blog. I’m transferring my NaNoWriMo July 2013 journey over to my side blog, Tangled Inkspills — my poetry, prose and writing journey blog. Follow me on Tangled Inkspills and watch me write furiously/have fun/lose sleep/increase my caffeine intake over the month of July!
