I got the words and most of the colors for my content rating system from Rated Reads. I will post some sort of rating for the content of the book kind of like movie ratings. After each content rating, I will add a few descriptions (like they do with movies) about why I thought it should be rated that. For example, it might say something like “Medium, for some language, some violence and a few kissing scenes,” all of which would be at what I think is a PG13 level since that’s what I rated the whole book. Any book that has more than 2 f*** words will automatically be rated high just for language. These ratings are all my own opinion, but I hope they help you make a more informed decision about what you read.
- None (Classics and non-fiction that don’t need ratings)
- Everyone (similar to G)
- Mild (similar to PG)
- Medium (similar to PG 13)
- High (Rated R or worse)
