I rate all the books I read by with a five star rating system.
1 star: Did not like, or did not finish. A book with a 1 star rating is just bad.
2 stars: It was just ok, but I may have had to force myself to finish reading it. A 2 star book is not good but not awful.
3 stars: I liked it. Most books I read are 3 stars, and this is not a bad thing at all!
4 stars: I liked it/ loved it and would most likely recommend it. These are the books I like to discuss and are among my favorites.
5 stars: Loved it and will reread again and again! A book has to be very special to get a 5 star rating – unique, interesting, and always fresh no matter how many years it has been since I first read it.
