The illusive five star rating is reserved for absolute favorites. It does not mean I had no problems with the book, but it means whatever problems I did have don’t matter because the book is THAT GOOD.
This is for books that nearly made it to five stars but had too many problems for it to be a full five star book.
this is for books that I love, but aren’t on my favorites list.
this is for books I read and felt “meh” about. It means I didn’t LOVE it but I also didn’t HATE it.
This is for books I don’t like, but that I don’t hate.
This is for books I hate. It’s not one I give out often.
This is how I rate books. But if I give a low rating, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it. I believe you should always decide things yourself. If you want to read a book, then read it! 🙂
