So here we go:
= I didn’t like it.
And what I mean by I didn’t like it is that IT WAS GARBAGE. 9 times out off 10 these are books that I never finish because I just couldn’t get through them. If I did finish them, I don’t know how…because they made me want to gouge my eyes out with dull spoons with every word I read. I will never re-read (or attempt to finish reading) and would never recommend.
= It was okay.
As in, “It didn’t make me want to hurt myself but I’ll probably never read it again.” Don’t waste your time or your money because there are too many books out there that are better than this.
= I really liked it.
This was a book that affected me in some way. It made me think. It inspired me to act. It prompted me to stalk the author via the intarwebz. These are usually worth a re-read and definitely worth a rec.
= I loved it!
I want to marry it and have its babies. It was genius. It made me laugh or cry or both. It made me angry, it made me sad, it made me think it was probably written about me or my life should have happened like it. It made me have all the feels and if I wasn’t swamped in a TBR pile as big as a house, I’d re-read it RIGHT. NOW. I will recommend this to everyone I know…even people who don’t like to read. Because it was that good. Note: These are very, very hard to get from me. I don’t hand them out as freely as most book reviewers do, so when you see one you should just proceed directly to your source for book buying and get a copy of whatever it is. DON’T ASK ANY QUESTIONS.
