Top 5 Tuesday |  Reasons I Rate Books 5 Stars


Hey guys! This week’s topic is really interesting, because instead of talking about books, we’re talking about why we rate books 5 stars. There’s a lot of things that go into rating books and sometimes the smallest things can affect your rating. I can’t wait to see what everyone else’s lists!

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. Each week we respond to that week’s topic and link back to her page. Go check out her page to join in! 


  1. Definite Reread

More often than not, if I give a book a 5 star review it’s because it’s definitely a reread. In order for me to think a book is a reread and worthy of five stars, the book also has to have the other four factors on this list.

  1. Great plot

I’m pretty sure every book lover will agree, a book has to have a decent plot in order to just read the book, but in order to get a 5 star review, the plot has to be really good. Plot-twists are the best. 

  1. Page Turner

A book has to make me want to read it and not put it down in order to get 5 stars. It has to make me think and try to figure out what’s going to happen next if I do put it down. 

  1. Great Writing

Every author writes differently, so it’s always a gamble when reading anything from a new author, but a 5 star read to me is a book that can describe everything enough for me to be able to imagine it myself without being too wordy. I also think good writing is when the author stays on what the story is about and doesn’t go too far into another direction to explain things.

  1. Good Characters

Good characters, and their development are a huge factor in any story. The characters have to go along with the plot and develop respectively in order for a story to be good and that’s how I factor that into how I rate my books.


Happy Reading!
