All the books reviewed on this blog have been bought by me or my family and it is my decision to review them. All opinions stated are my own. I do not receive any compensation for writing those reviews. I usually write spoiler-free reviews, unless stated otherwise. For the moment, the reviews deal with general overviews of books until I have more spare-time to write longer reviews (I’m writing a PhD thesis right now).
Since I am a French student in English Language, History and Literature, all my reviews are written in English even if I read books in both languages (French and English). I apologise for any grammar, spelling or idiomatic mistakes. You may correct me in the comments, I would only ask to do so in a respectful and constructive way.
Regarding the rating system, it is as follows:
0* : I hated the book or did not finish it.
1*: I didn’t like the book but people might still like it.
2*: It was OK but I would have liked something more researched.
3*: I liked it. It could be improved but very enjoyable on the whole. Recommeneded.
4*: I thought it was really good. I’m waiting for more, maybe slightly more challenging. Warmly recommended.
5*: I adored it. Nothing more to say. Excellent. Cannot recommend it enough.
I may sometimes use half marks to rate the books (e.g. 2.5*/5)
