Rating System:

5 ⭐️ – I absolutely adored this book! It probably made me cry/I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Dying for this author to write more!

4 ⭐️ – I really enjoyed this book! There was lots of brilliant content and it was well written. A brilliant read but there was perhaps something missing – usually that it didn’t make me cry or something.

3 ⭐️ – I enjoyed this book! There were definitely good points and don’t regret reading it. There may have been one or two things that I didn’t love or that I felt could be expanded or explained more but overall it was an enjoyable read.

2 ⭐️ – I wasn’t so enamoured with this book. There may have been a few things that I didn’t love but were a few positives. Probably wouldn’t read this book again.

1 ⭐️ – I didn’t really enjoy this book. There were more negative points than positives and wasn’t my cup of tea – not to say that it would be that way for every reader!
