No spoilers in any of my reviews.
Ratings are from three stars up to five stars, as follows:-
Five stars: Masterpiece
These books had me hooked from the very beginning and I could not put it down. Truly splendid; thrilling; exciting. Something I haven't seen before; an exceptional plot twist that leaves me aghast; an ending I could never have seen coming. These are the books I would thoroughly recommend that you read.
Four stars: Outstanding
These books were excellent and I found them hard to put down. I enjoyed them thoroughly; an excellent novel that thrilled me throughout. With only a sprinkling of magic missing that stopped me from giving five stars. I would recommend that you read these books.
Three stars: Good
These are good books that I enjoyed reading. They had both good qualities but with a few flaws, and I emphasise this point, the review is only my opinion. After all, remember I love a thriller that keeps me guessing so you, as a reader with your own personal taste, may have a very different viewpoint.
If I review a book that I would rate only 1 or 2 stars, with respect to the author, I do not upload the review to my website or to any other social media portal.
I have never reviewed books that I did not finish.
At the end of each year I do my final wrap-up post, listing my five favourite books, and what it was that made me fall in love with them, what kept me hooked and what kept them in my thoughts.
