One-Two Stars: Books I may not finish rarely finish. These books usually have either a writing style I can’t stand, too many plot holes or characters I find bland, cliche, or unreliable.
Three Stars: These books are generally alright books. I enjoy them, I read them to the end, and on the whole I find them on my list of “yeah, that was okay”.
Four Stars: These I consider to be quite good books. They are my go-tos for when someone asks me about a good book, I’ll go to my list of “Four Star”‘s. They suck me in, they keep me guessing, reading, wishing I could stop everything else, ignore real life and finish them. They give me that emotional cathartic release when I’m done.
Five Stars: These five star ratings are reserved for the very best books I’ve ever read. They are books that I find it hard to come back from, like the white whale of books. I’m always in search of my next Five Star read.
