New Review Guidelines

I've had some review challenges over the past couple months and I have decided to revise my review guidelines to more accurately reflect my feelings about books. After much deliberation I've decided to continue with the stars, but to switch from 10 stars to 5 stars. I will also be revising what they mean. The simplest description of each star rating is what Netflix uses: Hated It, Didn't Like It, Liked It, Really Liked It, Loved It. There will be no 1/2 star ratings.

I have also had some issues with requested reviews that I simply could not finish. I normally won't do a review unless I've finished a book, but I want these to be accurately reflected, so I will do a short review for these books and include the accurate star rating for each.

The finalized new review guidelines can be found here.

I also want to reiterate that if a book is featured in a guest post, interview, or giveaway it may not reflect my personal views on the topic but I just want to put it out there for my readers so they can judge for themselves.
