Seven Star Stories.
Where should you look for excellent books to read. I have trouble finding books that I like to read. So, I created a criteria list. Then I started listing authors of books that I&';ve read who meet this criteria. I call these books Seven Star Stories.
✷1: The story is engaging, energizing, and exciting. It is not boring or formulaic or too preachy.
✷2: It&';s well-written. It is not full of plot-holes, overly-redundant, full of typos, or awkward. It might contain plot-twists. The story line might not be a straight line.
✷3: It&';s easy to read. It might contain long words, non-English words. I encourage authors to provide reading-ease and grade-level.
✷4: It&';s on the light side, perhaps even hopeful. It is not too dark or dystopian. It might be lite-horror.
✷5: It&';s decent in terms of intimacy. I encourage authors to provide maturity-level. There&';s not TMI.
✷6: It&';s decent in terms of conflict. It is not too violent, brutal, or demeaning.
✷7: The story has a good ending, even if it&';s not the ending you&';d prefer. Not everyone dies. The story doesn&';t stop abruptly or dwindle away to nothing. The ending might state or imply that there&';s more to come.

These Seven Star Stories are often memorable or quotable. You&';ll want to refer them to your friends. Many are humorous.
