It seems some people weren’t aware there were two of us here. After my review of Princess Academy, for example, RLovatt’s friends teased her for reading a princess book. It’s a bit understandable, as I really haven’t posted much on here, but with RLovatt starting to do reviews part-time for other places, that’s going to change.
So hi. I’m ARamone. I started this up with RLovatt a year ago when she decided she wanted to write a blog dedicated to reviewing books. My reviews are pretty different than RLovatt’s. They tend to be longer, and I include a rating out of 5 at the end. My rating scale is as follows:
1/5 = Horrible. Awful. A disgrace to literature. I haven’t had to rate anything this low, luckily.
1.5/5 = Pretty bad. Not disgraceful, but not anything I’d recommend.
2/5 = Not something I really enjoyed reading all that much, for whatever reason. I may or may not have been able to finish it. A 2.5 would mean I enjoyed some bits, or that it had an interesting idea, but I wasn’t very fond of it.
3/5 = Pretty okay overall. Typically there’ll be one major problem that made me remember it badly. A 3.5 would mean that the one major problem didn’t completely ruin it for me, but it still could have been better. For fans of the genre, I’d recommend it.
4/5 = Most books fall here. They were actually pretty good, and I’d definitely recommend it. A 4.5 was really good and quite enjoyable.
5/5 = Awesome. Amazing. I’d recommend it to anyone, and it was one of my favourites. Definitely check it out.
So yes, that’s me. My contact information is up, so drop me a line with a request (I have a hard time saying no to things). The only things I really won’t do are dystopian futures, but I’ll do just about anything else.
Thanks for reading!
