Just a little summary, sort of, about my ratings. I use the normal star system but here’s how I give certain number of stars!
= I’ve never given any book just one star but basically if I do, it’s only the books I did not finish at all.
= Two stars is for books that I finished, by force, and didn’t find anything to like in it.
½ = For books that forced myself through but still managed to like something in it.
= Three stars is for books that leave me just meh. Those are good but not great. I had a good time reading but still it was just a book to pass time with that still left me meh.
½ = Basically the same as 3 stars but better. It wasn’t all just meh.
= Books that I really had a great time reading and ended up liking them but still there were something that bugged me.
½ = Same as above but with smaller things left to bug me.
= Five star books are the ones that I just can’t put down, that I never want to end. Ones that take me through amazing things, different feelings, books that just suck me in an leave me praising them to all of my family and friends to the point that they want to tape my mouth shut.
