Book Review Rating System

Having come from a corporate background where employees’ performances are often graded on a 1-5 scale—with 3 being the standard for most employees who successfully perform their jobs—Meg treats her book reviews in a similar manner.

Here’s a quick breakdown of Meg’s book review rating system.


iWriterly’s 5-Star Rating Scale

  = The book has a number of areas that require improving (story, writing, or both). 

  = Either the story has areas of concern, such as plot holes or an overabundance of tropes/cliches, or the writing quality needs improving. 

  = The story was enjoyable and the writing was a good quality. 

  = Either the story or the writing was excellent/above average.

  = Some mythical cyborg/hero of legend composed this book, which contains a compelling story and phenomenal writing.
