Bookworm Rating System

Bookworm Logo

I don’t know how you all feel about the term “bookworm”, but I’ve always thought it was cute and fun, so I’ve created my rating system around it. Just to make it a bit more interesting (or possibly just plain weird), I’m incorporating the origin of the term; bookworms are also the larva of a type of beetle which eats the paper and glue in books. Obviously, I would never want real bookworms to destroy actual books, this is just a bit of fun, so please bear with me!

Interesting and well thought out plot, compelling and fleshed out characters, engaging narrative and style; I’m really glad I read it. Although it hasn’t quite made my favourites shelf, I would still protect it from any greedy bookworms trying to grab a bite or two.

Book Rating PictureBook Rating Picture This book is just okay. Dull or poorly executed plot, uninteresting and lifeless characters, poor style and expression; I could have done without reading it. If the bookworms got the munchies and wriggled their way into it, I probably wouldn’t stop them.

Book Rating Picture This book is terrible. Weak and unimaginative plot, underdeveloped and one-dimensional characters, amateurish writing; it’s just bad. I would feed this to the bookworms, although they probably wouldn’t eat it. I bet it even tastes bad.
