Review Policy

Reading is My Kind of Thing will feature reviews from a variety of genres, namely young adult, new adult, fantasy, romance, thrillers and contemporaries. As stated on my about me page, this blog was created in order for me to fully express my opinions on book related content.

In writing that, never on this blog will I attack an author personally. Even if I didn’t enjoy their book. That is not the purpose of my blog. All written reviews will be done in a respectful, critical and constructive manner –  regardless if the review itself is negative or positive.

Whilst I can’t completely erase subjective opinions (essentially, bias) from my reviews, I believe in writing as objectively as possible to deliver honest and thoughtful reviews. Please refer to the guide below that interprets star ratings given to reviews on this site.

Star Ratings:

★☆☆☆☆ – This was a book I did not enjoy

★★☆☆☆ – This book was below average, but I saw some potential in it

★★★☆☆ – An enjoyable read, but not perfect

★★★★☆ – A thoroughly enjoyable read

★★★★★ – I’ve lost all sense of objectivity clearly, but this book probably had some kind of emotional affect on me
