Rating System

I review books using a star rating system, as most people/bloggers do. This method is used on Goodreads, Amazon and other platforms. Here is what I think when I give a book a rating:

1 star: that was horrible. I probably dnf-ed it. it’ll make the list of worst reads. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM

1.5 stars: it still had some kind of positive note to it, but i admit that it’s something i’d still never want to look at. *sad face*Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM½

2 stars: i might’ve finished it, but it had too many negative points to note. i’ll most likely never read a book by that author ever again. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM

2.5 stars: it’s in the middle. half-good, half-bad. I won’t certainly gush about it, and it might get a mini-review to separate the points aside. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM½

3 stars: meh. that’s my classification word. *points to the left* it was okay. it probably got boring, slow-paced and it wasn’t the right read for me. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM

3.5 stars: this is a good read. it got better for me and it certainly was enjoyable. not my most favourite, though. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM½

4 stars: woo! this was awesome. if it’s a series, i’d read the sequel and i’ll be handing over a charming review to the author, that’s for sure. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM

4.5 stars: i loved this! there must’ve been something that was missing or negative, but it was almost perfect. something to definitely talk about. Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM½

5 stars: perfection. everything about it felt like it was written for me and i need all of the books by this author. what a success! Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PMScreen Shot 2015-07-22 at 7.12.37 PM
