DirtyBooksObsession uses the following Rating System.

From 5 Stars to 1

  • The Reviewers also sometimes, use half-star ratings. All ratings are rounded up or down on Amazon and Goodreads.

The stars rating system is based on the content of the books. This includes the following:

  • Story structure, emotional impact, and reactions of reviewers, characters development, plot, pacing, writing style etc.

5 Stars~This book was amazing… Loved it very much…

  • Our reviewers loved and enjoyed reading this book. The reviewers highly recommend this book to everyone.

4.5 Stars~A great read…Loved this book…

2 Stars~ Did not feel the story… “not my kind of book”

1.5 and 1 Stars~This is for sure “not my kind of book”
