Here is a quick explanation of how I assign a rating to my book reviews. I assign from zero to five stars, depending on my personal enjoyment and whether or not I would recommend the book to others who may like it more than I did. (You might not find a lot of sub-three star books on this blog, as I tend to not finish ones that I dislike that much!)
Five stars: I loved this book and will recommend it to others. If part of a series, will definitely continue reading.
Four stars: I enjoyed this book and will recommend it to others, but I have some criticisms. If part of a series, will continue reading.
Three stars: This book was all right. May recommend to others who I think might like it. If part of a series, probably will not continue reading.
Two stars: Did not like this book, but there was still some sort of redeeming value. May recommend to others who I think might like it. If part of a series, will not continue reading.
One star: I hated this book, but it wasn’t a total waste of time. Will not recommend. If part of a series, will not continue reading.
Zero stars: I hated this book and want to destroy it.
