Ink & Paper Soul Rating System
I read everything, but here are the genres I prefer and will seek out, out of habit:
Historical Fiction, YA Anything, Fantasy, Women's Fiction (I think chick lit is a derogatory designator), Literature, Dystopian, Romance, Comedy, Poetry, essays on social justice.
A few of books I've loved, to get an idea of my taste profile: The Phantom Tollbooth, The Harry Potter Series, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Big Magic, You Are a Badass, Crazy Rich Asians, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops, Luckiest Girl Alive, Anything Sarah J Mass, Chinese Cinderella, Discovery of Witches, Outlander, The Most of Nora Ephron, The Night Circus, James Baldwin anything.
I rate books on a 6 star scale.
Here's What Those Star Ratings Mean:
6/6 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK NOW. I loved it, its going in my forever collection. I will probably reread this book once a year because I enjoy disappearing between its pages. I'm online trying to see when it will be adapted into a movie or tv show. I want to option the rights to this book, can I hang out with the author? If I see someone reading this book on the street or in a cafe, I will stop everything to chat with them about it. I will fight you if you if you disagree...just kidding...kinda.
5/6 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - I loved this book! Its just shy of perfect but totally enjoyed reading it and am in my book happy place. I probably have a book hangover (similar to post Potter depression).
4/6 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - It was good, I may resell this book as I liked it a lot but won't feel the need to reread it or wax poetic about it.
3/6⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Book was alright not bad, not great, and I don't hate it but meh.
2/6⭐️⭐️- Ick I barely was able to finish or I hate read this.
1/6 ⭐️- I hated it, it might have one or two merits. The cover art is cool...
0/6- I threw it out the window.

I am no fan of the book review that is solely a book synopsis, you’ll find I include a synopsis from Goodreads and call it day.
