So, I do a lot of E-galley and Indie Author reviews, and when I do so, I make sure to post my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. The other day, I was looking at some of my older reviews, and I came across the review I did on “The Couple Next Door”, now on Amazon, the rating system is stars, and also I disliked it, I loved It, kind of system. So 4 stars is “I liked It”, 5 Star’s is “I loved It” Now, I have read plenty of books that I loved, however they weren’t anywhere close to a 5 star rating, Do I go by stars on Amazon, or do I go by their I liked it, loved it options?
I loved “The Couple Next Door” to me, it was in between a 4 and 5 star rating, so I went with 5 stars. I do not rate very many books at a 5. To me that is something special and is saved for books that leave a lasting impression. I got a very rude comment on my review
