Why I Don’t Write 1 Star Book Reviews


Reading is my passion and I love to share the good books I have read. This is exactly why I decided to become a book blogger. When I share a book on my blog or social media, I hope someone else will discover the book and love it as much as I do! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone thanks me for referring a new book or new series to them! Plus, it gives me someone else to swoon over the book with!

My rating system:

My rating system is the same as Amazon.com uses.

🌟 I hate it

🌟🌟 I don’t like it

🌟🌟🌟It’s ok

🌟🌟🌟🌟 I like it

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I LOVE it

Why I don’t give 1-star reviews:

Everyone is different. I may read a book and give it 4 stars and another person reads the very same book and only gives it 2 stars. If I don’t like a book, I stop reading it. Simple as that. I don’t finish the book and then give it a terrible review. I don’t want to turn someone away from a book that they may love just because I didn’t like it.

Authors thrive on reviews. When I choose a book to read, I don’t choose it based on the reviews…unless someone is giving it a positive review. I have read and loved many books that have received a mix of 1 and 5 stars. Just because someone gives a book a 1 star, doesn’t mean the book is bad. It just means the person that gave it the review didn’t like it. Like I said before, we are all different and have different views and opinions.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope this helps you when you are picking out new books to read!
