★★ – Meh
★★½ – Not all bad, didn’t have anything better to read
Most books I read will receive ★★★½ – this is a good
book to read! Anything ★★★ or higher I would recommend to someone.
ratings conform to the GoodReads scale.
My opinion of a book changes over time as I do. I might disagree now with a review I wrote two years ago. Please take older reviews with a grain of a salt.
Brief vs. regular review: A brief (formerly known as quick) review means I didn’t put too much thought into the review. I just wrote down my immediate impressions. I didn’t spend hours agonizing over what to write. This doesn’t necessarily account for length. Sometimes my time spent ruminating results in a short regular review and sometimes my immediate thoughts results in a longer quick review. Brief describes the time I spend writing, not the length of the review.
