Top 5 Tuesday: Reasons I Rate a Book 5 Stars

Top 5 Tuesday is brought to you by Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm, see her original post here.

I don’t think I am a ‘critical’ reader by any means but I know what I like and I know what I love.

Over the past year I think I’ve been more picky about what rating I give a book so this topic was perfect for me!

Theme = Top 5 Reasons I Rate a Book 5 Stars


Pacing πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

I’m one of those who wants it not too fast but not too slow. I want it all!!!!!

Writing Style βœ’

If I don’t like the authors/books writing style it’s going to have an effect on what I think of the book.

Plot πŸ“–

It needs to be interesting, make sense and have no holes! If there are holes, it totally takes my concentration away as I’m thinking about it!

Feels 😿😹

How the story makes me feel. I want all those feels! Well not in real life, just in the world that I am currently inhabiting!

Recommend πŸ†

If I want to plaster the book all over social media, if I want to discuss with a book friend who has read and if I push the book on my book friends then it’s a winner for me!


What about you? What makes you rate a book 5 stars?

  1. I agree with you about the writing style. Some authors have been acclaimed by many like John Green and yet, their style just does not work for me!
