About

Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Audra Watts and this site is where I write reviews and simply chat about books. I post every Saturday, some Tuesdays, and occasionally in-between. 😀

I rate books based on grammar, how well they held my attention, format, topic, and mainly cleanliness (cursing, violence, sex, etc.) I try to always be specific when rating.

If you’d like to submit a book for review, head over to my contact page for submission guidelines!

 

How my cleanliness scale works:

Very Clean – More mature topics, but it’s perfectly fine.

Slightly Tainted – Possibly some violence, cursing, sexual things, etc.

Yuck – Bad things in small amounts.

Disgusting – Medium amounts of dirt throughout. (I do not finish these or just skim.)

Trash – Large amounts of filth throughout. (35+ curse words qualifies. I do not finish these.)

Children’s books – Any questionable content appears above the star rating.

 

How my star system works:

5 stars – That was AMAZING!!!!! I want to reread it already!!!!!

4.5 stars – That was almost perfect!

4 stars – That was really good, but I would change a few things.

3.5 stars – That was pretty good, but not my favorite.

3 stars – Eh, that was okay. I’m probably going to donate this book.

2.5 stars – That was not too good.

2 stars – Well, that was a pretty awful book.

1.5 stars – That had maybe one redeeming quality.

1 star – That was TERRIBLE!!! What a piece of junk!!!

  1. Thanks for the visit to my blog. I like how you explain your rating. It is very similar to mine but I spelled it out. One thing I do not put negative ratings on my blog. I will let the author or publisher know, but don’t put it on my site. I have been reading books for around 75 years. I know what I like: satire. Right now, I write a review on every book I read. I read almost all the mysteries. I accept very few books from authors as I tend to forget. I tried to keep a promise. Thanks, again.

    1. Thank you! I hate putting bad reviews on my blog, and I always try to be as nice as possible! I also ask them if they are sure they want me to continue reading if I’m not enjoying it. I accept too many books from people, sometimes! Haha. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Hello Audra, I too do not enjoy the task of writing a bad review. But sometimes, even a bad review can still show strengths in a book… Unless it’s just a pure lemon all around!

    1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Yes! I agree! I always try to highlight negatives in a way that explains why I thought it was bad. After all, not everything I disliked will necessarily be disliked by others.

    1. Thank you!! Cleanliness is very important to me but I’ve always found it hard to find reviews that will actually tell you what’s in the book. So, I decided to do my own! 🙂Thanks for stopping by!
