BestSellers & BestStellars Review Rating Standards

5+ Diamonds: Books receiving this rating are SO astonishing that they make me wish for amnesia so I can go back and read it again for the first time. I’m left gasping for breath, palms sweating, and heart racing. These are the types of books that keep you up through the night because you literally cannot put them down. You have grown SO attached to the characters and the story that after the last page you feel like you’ve lost something special (hence the amnesia wish). This doesn’t happen often but when it does, you’ll know it.

5 Diamonds: This book completely blew me away and knocked my socks off! I devoured the pages from start to finish. It was extremely well written with an amazing storyline that sticks with you. The characters were phenomenal and are described so well you cannot help but wish they were real. This type of book leaves me dreaming and longing for more.

4.5 Diamonds: This book was almost 5 D’s but something minor stopped me from completely getting lost in the book. Something relatively small distracted me while reading which interrupted the story. It could be a detail that doesn’t fit, grammatical errors, overall editing, or the timing/pacing was a bit off.

4 Diamonds: I really enjoyed this book. It had appropriate pacing, steady flow, and strong storyline. This book grasped my attention and kept me entertained from start to finish. However, it was missing that extra sparkle to completely captivate me. The story didn’t get deep enough or the love wasn’t passionate enough. Still great overall and definitely liked it!

3 Diamonds: I liked this book. Overall it was fine but there was trouble in paradise. The editing needed more attention or the storyline wasn’t strong enough or characters weren’t deep enough. It didn’t quite flow from start to finish. There were times when you wanted to skip to the good stuff (hoping there is great stuff). There were parts left me wanting a lot more.

BestSellers & BestStellars will not give a rating lower than 3 Diamonds. We feel it is not our place to degrade an author’s work and would rather not rate it at all.

Thank you so much for your interest in BestSellers & BestStellars, we look forward to working with you.
