A+ – A Recommended Read. This type of book would contain all of the elements of an A rating and more. I feel like everyone should read this story.
A – This book is a truly exceptional read. It is one of the best books I have ever read. I could not put it down and I felt a deep, emotional connection with the characters. The storyline is outstanding and I cannot stop thinking about it after I am done reading it. I would definitely purchase this author’s back list. This book will go on my keeper shelf and I will re-read it again.
B – This book is a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I would recommend this book to family and friends, and I would search out more works by the author. This book will most likely go on my keeper shelf.
C – While this book is average, it is a worthwhile read. It held my attention and I liked the story. There are most likely issues with plot or character development. I would recommend it to a friend, but I probably won’t re-read it at a future date.
D – While this book has a lot of problems, I was still able to finish. It is most likely a book that is poorly written or has terrible editing. I would probably not recommend it to my friends, and it definitely won’t go on my keeper shelf.
F – This book is a do not finish. There are so many problems with plot, characters and editing it is not worth the time to read. Fortunately, I very rarely come across books of this type of book.
I also use a “+” rating for a book that falls between letters.
