This is my basic content review scale. I try to only read "clean" books, however some reviews books I receive may have more content than a book I bought myself.
~ Clean: None; no uses of profanity.
~ Mild: A few small cuss words here & there, but not enough to take away from the book. May contain a**/h***/d***.
~ Moderate: More than a few cuss words, but nothing too major. For example, nothing more than you'd hear on an episode of 'House'/'Castle'. May contain the above as well as p***/s***/b****.
~ Holy Moly!: All of the above words used frequently. May also contain gd/f. Any book that has gd/f in it, even once & even if it is the only swear word in the book, will automatically receive this rating.
~ Clean: No sexual dialog(ue). May be a small amount of kissing without many details.
~ Mild: Kissing with some details. May also contain a very small amount of sexual dialog(ue).
~ Moderate:Some heavy kissing with a little detail, but nothing too graphic. May also contain some sexual dialog(ue)[may be only mentioned, not necessarily described].
~ Holy Moly!: Crude/heavy sexual dialog(ue). Nudity/removal of clothes. Sex scene(s) [may or may not be described].
~ Clean: None; no violence.
~ Mild: Violence mentioned, but not really described. There may also be one or two small incidents described without much detail or some bullying.
~ Moderate: War violence(good vs. evil) with some description, but not too much detail. May also include rape,but with out (much) detail.
~ Holy Moly!: Rape with a lot of details. Graphic/glorified violence.
~ Drug use.
~ Underage smoking/drinking.
~ Witchcraft/fortune tellers/etc.
~ Anything else in a book I feel should be mentioned will be.
