How I Rate What I Read

Hey friends!

While I don’t typically rate books on the blog, I will mention if I enjoyed or disliked something and why. On Goodreads, I provide ratings for anything I read, unless it’s a DNF (I don’t think it’s fair to rate something I didn’t complete). But how do I get to these ratings and what are some examples for each?

In this video I discuss these things and hopefully you find it useful in determining if you’d follow my recommendations, or if it explains why we may disagree on something and why.
