Book Reviews

In my reviews, I aim to give a brief plot description,and if there are spoilers, I will warn you beforehand! I will also give a score between 1 and 5:

1 – Badly written with undeveloped characters. Does not tie up loose ends and leaves unanswered questions.

2 – Written quite well with some developed characters, but not an entirely believable plot. Most questions are answered, although some are left open.

3 – Well written with developed characters. Enticing plot and story development, with an exciting end/climax.

4 РVery well written and an enjoyable read, with developed characters who all have a purpose. Enticing plot and story development, with an exciting end/climax.

5 – Extremely well written, and almost can’t be faulted. It has an excellent plot and is usually a book I can’t put down.
