Rating System

The Secret Library book review policy follows the traditional 1-5 star rating system:

  • 5 stars – Excellent read.
  • 4 stars – Good read.
  • 3 stars – Average read.
  • 2 stars – Not a good read.
  • 1 star – Awful read.


All ratings and reviews are the opinion of myself and The Secret Library mascot: Fin, the baby dragon. (It isn’t often we disagree.)baby dragon transparent.png

Fin’s Seal of Approval

Any books receiving a five star rating will be stamped with Fin’s seal of approval: The Secret Library Recommended Read seal. It’s the highest honour a baby dragon can give!
