Shh Mom’s Reading rating structure:

  • 1 star & 2 star – this book was not something we enjoyed and in some cases may have  chosen not to finish – we will most likely not review; we will try to provide the author/publisher with constructive feedback
  • 3 stars: pretty good – we enjoyed this book, there were positive elements of this book
  • 3.5 stars: Good – this was a good read for us; maybe a great concept that fell short on execution
  • 4 stars: Very good – well worth the read, when we think back we remember the book and it makes us smile 
  • 4.5 stars: Excellent – almost a perfect read; a book that calls you while you are doing something else and that sticks with you after you are done 
  • 5 stars Outstanding – a must read – we likely found a top character here; as we believe often times a great story is about that character you love 
  • 5 plus stars – this will be awarded in rare occasions when a book is something we just can’t shake; and/or if both reviewers agree which will not happen often as they don’t always read the same books. 

Our goal is to provide professional and heartfelt reviews about the books and authors we adore.  We feel that is best way to accomplished this is by taking our time to write in-depth reviews for the books at the top of our rating scale. 

Please share your constructive feedback with us, it is how we learn and grow. 

Please feel free to email us with any news updates, book signings, hosting/participating in blog tours, and upcoming releases.  We will do our best to include relevant news posts onto our blog.

We are honored that you have considered us to review your work and look forward to working with you!
