Rating System

We aim to bring something unique to rating literature, film, television and theater. Not only do we review the quality of the content, but we also review the romance when relevant to the story.

For the overall ratings, we use vintage corsets and for romance, we use vintage hearts to represent the typical 5-star rating system!

For additional fun, we also give our “expert” opinion on what type of adaptation we recommend (Movie, Miniseries, or TV Show).

We only suggest adaptation recommendations for books. At the end of the review, we’ll give our “expert” opinion on whether we think the book would best be turned into a Film, a Series of Films, a Mini-Series, or a TV Show and why.
