New Rating System for Books

The Roxbury Librarian wants to make selecting what book to read easier for you!

ALL or A

Books rated ALL (or A for short) are children’s books. These are book that are safe for all ages, from beginners to adults. These include picture books (such as the Littlest Angel) to middle grade titles.

S (for Safe) or 12+

Books rated S or 12+ are considered safe for ages 12 and up. (And up includes adults! Yes, you can read these books!) They may include older middle grade, young adult, and clean and wholesome romance.

C (for Caution)

Books rated C were found by the Roxbury Librarian to have materials that are not suitable for a younger audience. While an erotic (or steamy) novel would be rated C at Roxbury Books, not all books rated C are erotic/steamy. C books may contain swears. (Calling someone a b*tch or using an f-bomb will get you rated C.) These books may also have sexual content that goes beyond implied intimacy and fade-to-black, or contains mention of nudity in a sexual manner.

These ratings are the sole discretion of the Librarian. When possible, we will give the reason behind the rating chosen. Information provided by authors and readers are used when making a rating decision.

If a book is rated or not, please use the genre for guidance when making your selections. Do your research to avoid those unpleasant surprises! If it doubt, ask in a reader group or ask the author.

New Release: Georgianna

Daily updates Monday-Friday

“So, this is how it ends,” Georgianna whispered as her body trembled in terror and exhaustion. Her breathing was rapid, and her chest heaved as she struggled to recover from her recent clash and clear her wits. She was shackled to a thick upright beam of wood while a madman scribbled with chalk on the floor and chanted her death mantra. She had successfully evaded her hunters for years and briefly experienced true love and happiness. All too soon she would be stripped of everything and nailed to the floor as a blood sacrifice. And there was no one to save her.

Genre: fantasy action and adventure

Rating: C (language, sexual situations, nudity)
