My ranking of books and authors, based on a 5-star system:


5 stars: I couldn’t put this book down and want to read over and over again

4 stars: A really good read, with re-readability, but not so engrossing that I couldn’t put it down.

3 stars: A decent read and still enjoyable, but there are things I can’t get past for a higher rating.

2 stars: An OK read that I’m not crazy about and may not read again.

1 star: I don’t want this book in my library.

0 stars: I want those hours of my life back.


5 stars: Their books are so engrossing that I can’t get enough of them and have the date of their next release on my phone calendar with alarm.

  • Tamora Pierce
  • Mercedes Lackey
  • Sherwood Smith

4 stars:  Writes good books, good stories, but my love for them isn’t as obsessive as for a 5 star.

  • Moira J. Moore
  • Sherryl Jordan
  • Kate Forsyth
  • Lynn Kurland
  • Mindy L. Klasky

3 stars: Still writes pretty good books, but I can live without until I can’t find new books by authors I favor more.

2 stars: Meh.  They’re OK, and I might still read their books, but I just don’t get into them for whatever reason (character, plot, etc.)

1 star: Not crazy about them at all, doubtful if I’d pick up their books again.
