Writing Reviews – My Rating System

Writing Reviews: My Rating System (caitsbooks.com)

The longer I’ve been writing book reviews, the more confused I get with my own rating system.

Rating are hard. I really struggle with them. Since I use Goodreads a lot (shameless plug- add me as a friend), I wanted to keep things consistent and rate every book out of 5 stars. However, with so many people rating books from 1-5 stars, everyone now has their own meaning behind what a 5 star/3 star/1 star book is. Even my own meaning has changed.

So, for the sake of clarification, I want to explain what my ratings mean, and give some examples for each!

Disney-A-Thon Wrap Up!

Disney-A-Thon Wrap Up (caitsbooks.com)

Disney is kinda my brand (outside of books, that is). I’m known at work as the girl who always wears Disney dresses, I cosplay as Disney Princesses, I’m a Disney Vacation Club Member and I visit Disney World almost every year, and my house was literally designed after Disney.

Needless to say, I was excited to do this Disney-A-Thon.

Especially because I was going to Disney this month.

However, I’m awful at sticking to TBRs, and readathons scare me, so I knew this would definitely be a challenge. Not to mention, I set up pretty high goals for myself for the month.

If you haven’t seen my Disney-A-Thon TBR, here’s a link to catch up!

Read more to see if I actually managed to reach those goals, or if I crumbled under pressure!

If You Like… Then You’ll Like – 2019 Releases Edition!

Wow, I haven’t done this type of book recommendation in a while. Which means I have so many books to talk about!!

Today, I want to focus on some early 2019 releases. Now, if you don’t know how this works, I’ll list 3 fairly hyped books, and pair them with 3 other books that are somewhat similar in tone, theme, or genre. If you like one of the books, you’ll probably like the one it’s paired with!

Alright, enough talking, onto the book recommendations!

Read More for my recommendation matches, and why I paired them together!
